"Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom!"
I am sitting on the toilet. This is Emma's favorite time to approach me with some urgent matter. "Yes, honey."
"Mom, do we have Charter on Demand?"
"Can we order Alvin and the Chipmunks? We can watch it whenever we want!"
Once again I am faced with a true Emma moment. I know that what I say next is absolutely, positively not going to be heard. With a sigh, through the bathroom door, I remind her, "Emma, we have Alvin and the Chipmunks on DVD. We can already watch it anytime we want."
"But mom! We can just press 1 on the remote and we can watch it on demand!"
"We have the DVD honey... we've already seen it twice..."
And with that she is off - "Claire! Claire!" - with who knows what urgent matter has just popped into her tousled little head.
I love her like crazy.
