I got Jake & Mal out of bed this morning & changed their diapers, & then they ran off to play. Wanting to play before they come down for breakfast has become the norm most mornings since we acquired all their cool new toys. I walked into their big kid room to see what they were doing & found them sitting at their table "eating."
I quickly found out that theirs was a private party as Jake quietly said, "Mommy out." Excuse me? I pretended not to hear him & asked him to repeat it, but he wouldn't. However, when I said, "Have fun!" a few moments later, Mallory exclaimed, "Bye!" so I guess she agreed.
I'm not complaining too much because I know I have a pretty sweet deal in terms of how well they self-entertain, but seriously? When did they get so big that they don't even want Mommy around?
