The burning question

Microblog_MondaysSaturday night
E. is upstairs in bed, shrieking hysterically.

Q. goes up to investigate.

E. is weeping, inconsolable, because we haven’t measured to see if his arm is longer than a baguette.

Q. comes downstairs, gets one of the baguettes he and E. made that afternoon out of the freezer, puts the two pieces back together, goes back upstairs, and determines with E. that his arm is not yet as long as a baguette.

E. immediately goes back to sleep.

Q.: “Well that was one of my more surreal parenting moments.”

  1. That’s adorable! Well, you probably didn’t think so when you heard E. shrieking at night. Kid’s minds work in a mysterious way, right? But when you think about it, so do grown up’s. We just internalize our shrieking 🙂
