Selective hearing

All in all, Mary Clare has taken to her big sister status swimmingly. There have, of course, been a few hiccups along the way. Case in point, this morning's exchange:

What I said:

"Mary Clare, please try to be quiet. Charlie is sleeping."

What she heard:

"Mary Clare, please go stand by Charlie's bedroom door and scream. Then start banging on the door as I approach you with a combined look of fear and anger in my eyes."

  1. Glad to know my girls aren't the only ones!! Has she gotten in his face yet when he's sleeping and yelled "WAKE UP"?...that was a good one, too! I'd love to see what my face looks like when they do that...not pretty or nice, I'm sure:-)

  2. Oh, Kara. I think Delaney and Mary Clare could make quite the team. They would certainly keep by-the-rules Riley on her toes.
