Although I try my best to be home when the girls get out of school, there are occasional times that they have to actually use their keys and be alone for a little while. Today was one of those days. When Mimi called me to let me know they were home and to see where I was she asked about the buttons. Apparently, I had left them on the table and she wanted to know if they could play with them. Naturally, I told her to go right ahead.
When I arrived home about half an hour later, KT grabbed my arm and dragged me to the table. She wanted to show me what they had been up to.
Mimi had gone through and picked out her favorite buttons. Mostly the bright, sparkly ones or the strangely shaped ones. (yep, she’s my kid alright!) She had put them into a separate bowl and was just admiring and playing with them.
KT was busy sorting every button out into it’s very own pile. She was very upset that her sister wouldn’t help her with this very important job.
My buttons are still spread out on the dining room table. They make me happy just to look at them. And I love the fact that my girls are having nearly as much fun playing with them as I did when I was a kid. My only concern is the reaction KT is going to have when I tell her that all the buttons are going to have to go back in the jar. All mixed together!
