I had to post an insight into the life of Elisabeth and the difference between Mom & Dad.
Last Sunday evening we went to Kathleen's new town home to check it out and to visit with her. After our visit, Jake and I buckled the kids into their car seats and Jake got in the car before I was done buckling in Elisabeth. He put the car into reverse, which in our car makes the door automatically lock. I hadn't opened the passenger door yet when the doors were locked. Jake unlocked the car and let me in. Here is our conversation that followed:
Jake: Ellie, how would you feel if we left Mom at Kathleen's house to live and you lived with just Dad and Nathan?
Elisabeth: I NEED my mommy. I love her and she helps me with stuff.
Jake: How about if I stayed and lived with Kathleen and you lived with Mom and Nathan?
Elisabeth: (pausing for a second or so) well, Dad we'd miss you!
Jake and I couldn't stop laughing. I have a hard time smiling still because of my surgery and I think I overstretched some muscles because I paid for it the next morning! Kids say the funniest things sometimes.
