    “We’ve had bad luck with children; they’ve all grown up.”

    Christopher Morley

    I’m not sure if Pip has sensed that I need her to be ‘low maintenance’ lately, but she has been an angel.  (Possibly because she doesn’t usually get to watch back-to-back episodes of ‘Blues Clues’ while Fig naps!)  She has also been helping to ‘parent’ Fig.

    Last Sunday we were driving home from the ferry and Fig had reached her limit; she was ready to get out of the car.  We were still thirty minutes away from home, and my husband and I had exhausted our supply of ‘things to occupy your kids on a road-trip.’  To make matters worse, every time I tried to sing a song or even talk, I’d launch into a coughing fit.   Just when we thought Fig’s whimpers were going to progress to full-on cries, we heard her laugh!!!  Pip to the rescue.  I don’t know exactly what Pip was doing that Fig found so funny, but it worked!

    And then today, the girls were eating lunch and I noticed that Fig was using her fork instead of her hand, so I said , “Wow, good eating Fig!”  Pip looked at Fig and said,

    “Fig, can you say thank you to Mama?” and Fig looked at me and said,

    “Thank you, Mama.”

    It’s nice to know I have back-up when I need it.
