*Cookies should be sampled at every stage of making, despite Mama’s cries of, “NO, ick, Salmonella! GAH!”
*Mama may just have a clue what she's talking about when she says, "I wouldn't eat that, jalapenos are spicy hot."
*Stomp is simultaneously scary and exhilarating. You cannot help but dance around like a freak when they get going.
*Butternut squash is dinner yet dessert! YAY!
*Tying your own shoes is damn near impossible.
*There is nothing you can do when you start peeing unexpectedly. Even if you’re standing on Daddy’s favorite chair, ready to jump off of it at him.
*Daddy is much nicer than Mama about peeing on favorite chairs.
*Roaring at the cat won’t make her run away.
*Unless you also flail your arms and scream, “Go ‘way, GO ‘WAY!”
*Jerking your hand around just as Mama goes to trim a fingernail is unadvisable. Everybody cries.
*Anya enjoys getting hugs, as long as she can still breathe.
*Mama is just slightly insane.
*And finally, Mama will get really annoyed if you don’t click over and look at her pictures of the tiny container garden. Say nice things and complement her prowess as a gardener. If you don’t, she’ll cry and throw dirt… totally acceptable if you’re a two-year-old. Not so pretty at 30.
