Judean Shepherd #2
"Listen, Judean Shepherd #2, it's almost noon and you still haven't made your bed."
"Also #3, Mom! Judean Shepherd #3!"
"Well, the fact remains that you have not made your bed."
She brought home her script on Wednesday and we ran through her lines. I must say she read them with great gusto and much animation. She was disappointed in my portrayal of the other shepherds when I read their lines, though.
Lately it seems like my daughter's schedule is busier than mine. Last week I had to pick her up from a student council meeting on Monday, drive her to church for play practice on Wednesday, and drive her back for another practice on Saturday. I kept thinking, "She's still just six, right?"
My daughter, without hesitating for half a second or even taking a breath said, "Dare!" The fact that she automatically chose dare without even thinking about it makes me fear her teenage years terribly. The good news is that the "dare" was "I dare you to kiss your mom." And of course my daughter gave me a kiss because she does not yet think that kissing one's mom is uncool. Also, when truth was chosen on the next round, I was relieved to find that the questions consisted of stuff like, "Did you see the new Muppet movie?" Whew!
