A Toddler Is the Boss of Me

In Peanut, Travel on August 18, 2011 at 6:25 pm

I am currently locked in an epic battle with technology, which I will write about later if I can bring myself to discuss it without tears of frustration, so I am distracting myself by noting some of the amusing things the Peanut says.  Recording those moments was kind of one of the points of this blog in the first place.  So here is a scene from our house, circa two days ago.  By way of background, Peanut’s best little buddy A just returned from a family vacation to Sri Lanka.

Peanut: Peanut go to Sri Lanka?

Me: Sure, someday we’ll go to Sri Lanka.

Peanut: Sunday?

Me: No, not Sunday, someday.

Peanut: (decisively, over her shoulder while leaving the room) We go Saturday.

I have a feeling I’m going to find our bags packed Friday.
