As if it’s not enough that the most frequently used word in my vocabulary is “blog” these days, I’ve had to drag my family along. I really should get a life.
Last night we went to eat at a local Sushi Bar. Iris (a mere 2) pours a handful of etamames (sp?) into her mini-bowl, tears open her chopsticks, positions them in her hand like she knows what she’s doing, and starts chowing down these wet, slippery little soy beans USING HER CHOPSTICKS! No kidding. No guidance, no instruction, she just instinctually uses two sticks as eating utensils. Just like that. I was freaking out, of course, and whipped out me camera, of course, and started shooting pictures of my baby genius demonstrating her latest talent.
I caused a spectacle, of course, and in the midst of all the excitement, Julia (8) blurted out, “Mom, you can blog about this!” in one of her many lightbulb moments.
I don’t know about you, but I think I’ve found myself a muse.
