Oh, does this ever sound familiar!

(Not with regard to the purple tights, though. Generally. There is a certain pink towel that has launched a thousand ships ... of whininess. Awkward metaphors FTW!).

Oh, I wish it worked like that in this house.

Maeve: *whinges teeth-grindingly*
Me: I'm happy to help you out, but I need you to talk sensibly, not whinge.
Maeve: *whinging escalates*
Me: Seriously dude, I can't hear through the whinging. Stop whinging and TALK to me.
Maeve: *in a wailing, tearful, shrieky fashion* I NOT WHINGING! I NOOOOOT!

Mind you, this is the three year old who has just been moved interstate, started daycare and moved in with a new step-parent, all within two weeks. I think I can cut her some slack.

Does this mean she knows her colors now?

I have to agree with her about the purple tights. I saw some awesome ones at Target, but they didn't have my size (they didn't have Elvis's size either, though, so I'm in good company).

I didn't think so, but apparently yes. We were walking to Casey's school yesterday, and she pointed out a new mural with orange buildings and a blue sky.

So I guess she probably does own purple tights, though I didn't see any in the drawer.

my kids will often call something purple that i would call blue, or vice versa. also any yellowish green gets categorized as yellow by caleb.

and i agree, purple tights sound fabulous.
