A few days ago, R got annoyed with me that I was working on things and not responding quickly enough to her needs. She wrote me a letter that said, “You hurt my feelings. When you tell me to do something I do it asap. When I ask you to do something, it takes you one minute.”
Today I took the girls to the zoo. After 20 minutes of hard shopping in the gift shop, Ruby settles on buying a stuffed animal sloth. She tells me it’s name is Sally, named after me. Maybe it was my slowness, but I was amused.
