It's past 8pm now and I haven't had a moment to myself all day. What I've really wanted to do all day is relax a bit with a cup of tea and a book. That fantasy is about to become a reality in about five minutes, I think. But I just had to post this:
I was in the kitchen chatting with Valentine just before dinner. We were making mashed grasshoppers. (That's guacamole with a small sign stuck in it saying "Mashed Grasshoppers". We're getting the food ready for the Halloween party, remember?)
Suddenly, Valentine whispered "Hush mom! Listen!"
I heard light footsteps coming down the stairs and two sweet little voices singing:
Now he's dropped down to the floor
Heading for the bedroom door
Maybe he's as scared as me
Where's he gone now, I can't see
It turns out that my twin daughters know all four verses of Boris the Spider and can sing it really well.
Too cute, srsly.
