The Things They Say

I am getting Little One dressed for church- talking quickly, moving fast…
“Where’re your crocs? You have to go get your blue crocs…”

Little One answers back. “They’re in the shoe cubby” voice rising a bit…
“Actu’lly, my crocs are in the shoe cubby! My blue crocs are in the shoe cubby!”

I am startled out of my quick, focused movements by my two year olds quick,
Confident use of the word “actually.”

“Did you just say actually?” I stand him up. He grins. I hug his little self close. Press sweet cheek next to me. This one often surprises me. Put him down and send him off to get his shoes.

His crocs really weren’t in the shoe cubby… 😉
