Bean and I had Color Me Fall art class today at the local recreation department. It's just under an hour long, and we had a great time getting ourselves all good and coated with purple glue stick and orange fingerpaint. Since our class ended a little bit AFTER our normal lunchtime, and we were having a fun time being out and about, I proposed a little ladies' lunch out for the two of us and my plan received an enthusiastic thumbs-up from my sweet little sidekick.
On our way to the restaurant, Bean chatted away happily.
Mama, yer my bess frend.
Oh thanks Bean, you're my best friend right back, you and Daddy!
And I haffa take care a you, 'cause I love you.
Yes, and I have to take care of you too because I love YOU!

Yes, and it takes both of us, too, doesn't it?
Yes it does! An' we haffa take care of somemuddy ewse, too Mama?
Sweet lil Sissy and Buddy!
Then, at the restaurant, we got halfway into our meal, Bean whispered, Mama, I REALLY haffa go to the baffwoom.
Oh, really? Right NOW?
So we went to the bathroom and she wasn't kidding, either.
Mama, that was a long tee-tee! Like a Daddy-man tee tee!
Yes, it was!
