So the “fashionista” has lost the match to her favorite brown sandal, and approached me this morning with this conversation:
Me: (washing breakfast dishes)
F: (Pencil and marble notebook in hand) Excuse me, lady….I have a few questions for you. I’m a detective.
Me: Wow…a detective???
F: Yes….I”m trying to solve a mystery. You see…this shoe disappeared.
Me: I see…
F: So…..have you seen this shoe?
F: (writing in her notebook)….Where was the last place you saw this shoe?
Me: On your foot…
Me: oh….in your shoe cubby…(more writing)
F: I see…..ok….thanks.
* repeats same questions to her dad*** (obviously frustrated)…..
F: I think I need to bring a certain person, who has too much information to my office. (looking at Sweet Pea)
F: I’m going to bring you to my office and put some thinking music on for you. (grabbing the ipod touch) This should help you remember more….
Sweet Pea: I don’t know anything……(walking away)
F: (yelling) I’m NEVER going to crack this case…..I’m NEVER going to find my shoe…..
Me: Why don’t you just start looking for it? Check your room, under the couches…
F: Um….yeah…..I’m ok with never cracking the case….
Never a dull moment with kids around. Enjoy your Saturday!
