Can You Hear Me Now?
The other night, after an endless day, Peaches tried to stretch out bedtime. At least, I hope it was a ploy.
"Um, mama? You know how you said today I should just listen to the little voice inside me that tells me the right thing to do? Well, I don't hear that. I think sometimes my little voice tells me to make bad choices."
Glad it was dark, I bit my lip. Then, I tried this, "Peach, if you listen carefully, I know you will hear the other voice. It's inside you telling you the right thing to do. Such a sweet girl like you can do it, I know you can, if you just listen."
I pause for a long moment and then turn to go.
"Nope," she says. "Can't hear it."
Friends, I am beginning to get the impression that child needs her own blog all to herself. Alas.
