So, Lily’s in charge of dinner tonight. She loves being in charge of things. L-O-V-E-S it!!! Every time I leave her with Jake as the babysitter, she wants me to tell her what SHE’S in charge of! Tonight, she told me that we were all going to sit at the kitchen table and eat and tell Harry Potter stories. Normally, we don’t do that. We’re not really a sit-down-at-the-table-and-share-our-day family. Except for tonight!!!

Kev got out of the festivities….he cooked and doesn’t like Harry Potter and gets cranky if he doesn’t get to watch TV while he eats (unless my bro-in-law is over and they are otherwise occupied!!). Anyway, so Kev holes up in his room, and the three of us — LilyBell, the Jakester, & me — go to the table. Jake comes kicking and screaming, but Lily gets him to sit down. She makes us all tell a story about our day and then which Harry Potter story we liked best. She told hers, too, of course, and it was some kind of funny. Toward the end of dinner, Jake was aggravating Lily and asked her if she’d rather be pretty or smart. And do you know what my baby-girl said? “I’m both!” haha….I loved it. She’s too smart for her own good! I can’t wait for tomorrow night’s dinner…
