Andy and I are often amazed at the things she comes up with. She is fearfully and wonderfully made. God, your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Recently we gave the kids a reward for filling up a stay-in-bed sticker chart. We have a terrible time keeping our kids in bed, so this was our newest attempt. It worked and they were allowed to choose their reward. We gave them a number of fun places to choose from-Chuck E Cheese and several other similar kids joints. Jack immediately decided he wanted to go to go Chuck E Cheese. EG thought for a few days and then decided that instead of all those kid places I mentioned, she preferred to go "to cafe." What she meant was she wanted to go to a book store and read books and get cafe. How adult of her! I love it. (we often say she's our 30 year old trapped in a 4 year olds body!) She and I had such a peaceful little visit to the book store. We sipped our hot teas, had pumpkin cheesecake, and read books while Andy braved Chucky's with Jack on a Saturday! I was glad I got to take EG! She and I are so alike. Andy laughs at how I love to hang out in artsy coffee shops. So glad I have a pal to go with me now!
