It’s Fast Sunday, and Mabel and Isaac are fasting until 4 PM, but Mabel always has a really hard time fasting and has been looking for something to distract her.
Me: “You could write in your journal.”
Mabel: “I just wrote in my journal two days ago.”
I try to think of what noteworthy thing might have happened two days ago. “When I was mean to you? Did you write all about how mean I was?”
Mabel grins sheepishly.
