Maggie Makes Four!

This journal started off documenting the adoption of our youngest daughter. It now follows the twist and turns of our lives as we raise these two amazing little creatures into the best women they can become.

Straight from the Mouth of Babes

A conversation with the Magster in the grocery store:

"Are you tired, Maggie?"

"No, Mom," she answers, her voice thick with disgust.

"You look a little tired, honey."

"I'm not tired. My eyes are still on."

"Your eyes are still on?" I ask.


"Well, how do you turn them off?"

In answer, the Magster looked up at me and shut her eyes. It was a very sarcastic gesture if the closing of eyes can be sarcastic. Apparently, I'm not quite clear on the indicators of "tired" in my children. Eyes on, not tired. Eyes off, tired. Silly me.

Happy 4th of July!
