Temperments:

This is the wide range of temperments I live with every day-


Mommy: "Andrea, can you tear these pieces of bread in cubes?"

Andrea: "How big?"

Mommy: "Ummm.....about 1 inch by 1 inch."


5 Minutes later

Mommy: "Andrea, where-.....what are you doing?"

Andrea has about 5 pieces of bread nicely stacked, and she is calmly measuring the half piece of bread with a ruler.


2 minutes later

Saralyn:"Mommy, can I help!?"

Mommy: "Sure, tear the bread into cubes".

Saralyn:"O.k"

Andrea: "Make them one inch by one inch"

Saralyn: "Whatever...."

Me: "Girls, Jon say 'Hi' to you."

Saralyn: "Hi, Jon!!"

Andrea: "Why is Jon saying 'Hi' to us?"
"What did you tell him?"
"Can I see the email?......."
