Last night we had a rare family moment. All three of us, playing on the floor together. Usually we Monster-Wrangle (our term for keeping an eye on Maggie) in shifts, because one of us always has something to do- cleaning up the kitchen, making a phone call, getting a shower, etc. But last night, we were done with dinner and waiting for the Steeler game to start, so we were having a nice Family Time in the living room.
Dan started reading one of Maggie’s books and the first page is a gorilla. As he was reading, he took certain… licenses with the text, comparing Mommy with a gorilla. He then pointed to the picture of the gorilla and said ‘Look Maggie- MOMMY!’ A few minutes later, she pointed to it herself and said ‘Mommy!’ Everyone had a good laugh and it was forgotten.
Until just a few minutes ago, when Maggie opened the book to the gorilla page, pointed to it and said, ‘MOMMY!’
