Day Sixteen (#2) – I Have Seen The Future And I Am Afraid

June 28, 2008 at 3:01 pm (Uncategorized)

A  little while ago, the doorbell rang.  I answered  it and found four shirtless young men armed with squirt guns and light sabres asking “Is Isabelle home?”  Yikes.  In all fairness, they  had stopped at our neighbor’s house first.  Maddie is also 5, has an older brother and is more accustomed to squirt gun fights than my “prissy” little  girl.  But, Maddie was  not at home so this band of kindergarten warriors came after  IZ, instead.  To her credit (I  think) she joined right in.  

After a few squirts landed on her favorite “skort” she ran inside to  change into a swimming suit.  She returned, only to be greeted by shouts of  “Oh yeah – Isabelle’s got her swimming suit on” and “Yeah baby!”  Are you kidding me?  From 5 and 6 year olds???? 

Emily, watching the mayhem that ensued for the next 40 minutes remarked, “Guys are chasing Isabelle.”  Emily, I think we’ll have to get used to that.
