As I was driving home with Lydia this evening, she told me, "Mom, Mommy, MOMMEEEEEEEEEEEEY! I'll get you markers when we get home AND a piece of paper. You can draw a picture, and I'll put it on the fridge. Just be patient!" She followed up with, "Be PATIENT. Hold your horses."
I'm not sure when these conversations occurred, but at least I know she listened ; )
And she told her brother, "Bless your heart." LOL.
