Our Crazy Monkeypants

Monkeypants
“Mom, Madeline acts like such a boy sometimes,” Nick said to me the other day.

“How do you mean?” I asked, already knowing I wouldn’t be disagreeing.

“Well, she likes to dig in the garbage and find something to eat.  She picks her boogers.  Did I do that?”

“No, you didn’t.”

“It’s funny.  She does these boy things but she’s really a girl.  She wears dresses, plays with her doll and drinks from pink cups.  She’s so silly.”

That she is.  That she is.  For every similarity there is between the two of them, there are just as many differences.

And that stuff all over her face from top to bottom?  A tiny piece of ice cream pie (non-fat, thankyouverymuch).  She’s crazy that monkeypants.

I think it’s funny (and great and age appropriate) that Nicholas has such black and white ideas of what boys and girls do! You can tell he loves his little sister! :-)
