We're Doing Something Right...
As we were leaving the gym yesterday, I overheard the girls talking to each other:
Katya: Talia, Talia, let's get home so we can keep playing!
Talia: OK, OK!
Katya: Let's play Big Sister/Little Sister, OK? All afternoon, for the rest of our lives!
Talia: Yes, yes!
(At this point my heart literally melts. The hours of screaming/fighting/whining fade into the back of my mind. Ah, familial harmony...)
Me: Oh, girls, that's sooo nice!
Talia: I'm the big sister and Katya is the little sister.
(Now my bubble is about to burst...)
Talia: And you're dead. Daddy, too.
Katya: Don't you know, Mommy, that stories are always more interesting without the parents around??
(I guess we have another Comparative Literature student on our hands!)
(Now let's really add some insult to injury...)
Katya: We could call you Grandma, though... You are pretty old...
Both sets of pictures were taken during the past two years; I love how they portray the girls' relationship!
