Daily. No hourly my kids do things that make me go “OH YES, this is why you go to the G&T school! You are so brilliant my perfect, smart and amazing kids!”
For example, just last week as I was cooking dinner my kids came into the kitchen to get a glass of water. They opened the cupboard and Eloise said “Mom, all of the small glasses are dirty.”
So I said “Well use the big ones.”
And Esther said “But we only want a small glass of water.”
So I said “Then fill the big glass just half full.”
And Eloise said “Well that seems like kind of a waste.”
And Esther said “Yeah, and what if we forget to turn the water off and fill it too high and then don’t want that much water and then have to dump it out.”
And then Eloise said “It would be weird not to use the whole glass.”
And so I said “Well then why don’t you guys share a glass and only drink half each.”
And then Eloise said “Gross.”
And then I said “I’m sure you can figure this out.”
And so Eloise said “FINE, let’s go Esther we’ll just get a drink tomorrow after the small glasses are clean!”
And so they walked out of the kitchen. Still thirsty.
Gifted I tell you.
And I have extremely high hopes that their baby sister will follow in their footsteps. Maybe. Probably not.
