Today, Thing 1 had a playdate with her cousins.  A seven-hour playdate Without Me!  Waah!

Her four-year-old cousin likes to play “school.”  Naturally, Four-Year-Old Cousin is the “teacher” and Thing 1 is the “student.”  Today, after her playdate, Thing 1 tells me “Want go to school.”  Waah!

Further conversation with Thing 1 revealerd of course, that Thing 1 has no idea what “school” is.  She was  just parroting what her older cousin was playing.  She’d probably say “Want a hand grenade” if someone talked about them to her.  Later, I asked if she’d like to “play school with Mommy,” she said “want play school with Mommy.”

OK.  The natural order is restored.  My baby still loves me.

But today I learned that Thing 1 is growing up.  One day she won’t need me anymore.
