And one thing that nearly made me cry... @ 11:00 pm

Emotions: melancholy melancholy

Tonight, after dinner, Maeve asked for a tangerine that she saw in our fruit bowl. The skin had dried a little, so I started to peel it for her. "I want to peel it, MAMA!" she started to melt-down. I said, "It's dry, let me do it for you, it's harder to do..." and she interrupted with a bit of a beginning cry, stopped herself and said, tearily and emphatically, "A'hm a big GIRLA!"

Oh. My. God. I handed over the tangerine. She peeled it handily, and was so very happy to do so, setting all the pieces of peel carefully in a bowl before wolfing down the juicy fruit.

Yes, you are, dearest, you are. *sob*
