Most mornings, I'm rushing trying to get everyone packed, dressed, fed, combed, brushed, pottied, dressed again because there's been a spill, you know, the regular routine. I'll leave the girls to their own devices for a few minutes, and more and more often I'm rewarded with hysterical giggles and shrieks as they amuse themselves with a new made-up game.
The other day when Robin was napping, I was giving Erin the Marshmallow test with some jelly beans: eat one now, or wait for a period of time and eat three later. Well, she passed the test with flying colors. And so the prize, four jellybeans. She ate three, then asked for a baggie. I asked her if she was saving it for later, she replied, "well, I had three, so this one is for Robin."
