Daily Inventory


At least six times a day, Elizabeth and I have this conversation:

E: Where Ehwah doe?

M: Ella is at school.

E: Oh. Where Yeeyee doe?

M: Lily is at school.

E: Oh. Where Bubble doe?

M: Campbell is at school.

E: Oh. Where Wook doe?

M: L*** is at school.

E: Oh. Where Mahnee doe?

M: M*** is at school.

We’ll finish her inventory, and then she’ll go off to play, only to come back 20 minutes later to start all over. Elizabeth also goes through the list when she gets up from her nap, any time we get in the car, and whenever we get home from running errands. It’s exhausting.

And I’m glad she can’t say the names of any more of our friends.

Sounds like a future police detective to me.

Have you ever turned it around and asked her? I used to do that to my inquizitive kid.

I have a very similar conversation with Natalie multiple times a day. We have far fewer people to go through though. She has her answers for Dada ready when she starts the conversation. Dada is either fishing or climbing (aka work). I wish those were the answers for me.

It may be exhausting but it's welly coot.

So so lucky to have this little thing still in your grasp, and only feet away.

Lucky woman.
