From the mouths of babes
This is another post about G- that's why I’m posting another baby picture of her. I just love this picture. Sometimes I miss my baby girl. But I do love my big girl.
Anyway . . .
The other night, she and I were reading a Cinderella book (not the Disney version). The story said something about how Cinderella was treated like a slave by her step mother and sisters. Being the curious little girl that she is, G wanted to know what a slave is. Here’s how the conversation went.
G: Mommy, what does slave mean?
Me: Well, a slave is a person who does all your work for you. A slave does the cooking, cleaning and other chores around the house.
G: Oh, then are you our slave?
Me: No, I’m the mommy.
G: (looking very confused) But, you do all the work around here and no one ever helps you. Not even Daddy.
