"So, how have the kids been since Maddy arrived?"

This is an account of my morning:

I'm sitting in the living room, nursing a very hungry Maddy, and hear the water in the kitchen suddenly start running...

"Gabby???? What are you doing, Gabby?"

"Nuffing, Mommy."

"I hear the water running, why is the water running?"

"I'm hewlping you."

"Gabby, turn the water off."

"But Mommy, I'm hewlping youuuu!"

"Gabby, I'm going to count to three, and that water better be off..."

"Mommmmmmy, I doing the dishes!!"

Suddenly, I'm intrigued...I had managed to empty the dishwasher but not load it, oh the mess she must be making! I detach a screaming Madeleine, walk to the the kitchen, and see that indeed, Gabby has rinsed every dish carefully and scrubbed them with the scrub brush, and they are all ready to be loaded into the dishwasher.

"Seeeee, Mommy??? I hewlped you!"

"You sure did, Gabby-girl." Big sigh. Can you believe she's only THREE...she looks like such a big girl doing big girl things...
