Whenever something goes wrong, Piper blames Emerson.  The other day I remarked on the stinky smell in the room.  "Em dit it." Piper declared.  "Em did what?" I asked.  "Em poop it in my diaper."

Today I caught her throwing her peas on the floor.  I clapped my hands to get her attention and started walking that way.  She squirmed in her chair a little and then said, "Be gentle with me, Mommy!"  The cat will be glad to know our efforts to teach gentleness are beginning to stick. 

I love my job!
