Nutshells

I’m aware that the girls are talking – instead of sleeping – as I get ready for bed tonight.  After noticing a few errant eyebrows hairs, I pull out the tweezers and start plucking, a quiet enough activity to allow me to actually hear what they are saying.

Mare: Who is the nicest boy in your class?

Bird: silence…  silence… Why?

Mare:  I don’t know.  But who is it?

Bird:  silence… silence… Can we talk about something else besides who you like in your class?

Mare:  Yeah.  What, though?

Bird:  How about fractions?

Mare:  OK! (just happy that her big sister wants to talk at with her at all…)

Bird:  You see, think of a pie and cut in into four pieces and eat one… blah, blah, blah…

If this conversation doesn’t wrap up my two girls in a nutshell and put a bow on it for you, nothing else will.
