You’re always ignoring me. It’s inappropriate. It hurts my feelings and it makes me sad and mad. You should listen to me when I talk to you, Ainsley informed me during our Mommy/Daughter Day on Saturday.
You’re right. I’m sorry. You have a valid point and you have right to expect my attention. I was thinking about my work. It’s hard for me to stay in the present moment. My mind wanders. I was writing in my head. It’s terrible habit, I explained.
I don’t have that habit, she said.
You’re lucky, I told her. You never daydream? I asked.
I have. But it’s easy to stop, she said.
I’ll try harder. Thanks for being patient with me. I love you, I said.
I love you too, she said.
I tried my best to stay focused and only had ask her forgiveness a few times.
We went garage saling and window shopping.
We went out for Chinese food.
We went to McDonalds.
We went walking at the big park and ate handfuls of wild blackberries we found by the pond.
We came home and colored poster-sized kittens and puppies with fresh markers on the trampoline.
She said it was her favorite day and I thought it was awesome too.
