You can learn so much from a big sister

Rose:  “Mom, I have  a charley horse.”

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry.”

Rose:  “Henry, if you have a charley horse it doesn’t mean you have a horse named Charlie.  It means your leg hurts or something.”

Me:  “Okay, it’s time for naps.”

Rose:  Heads for her bedroom.  Stops.  “Wait, I still have a charley horse.”  Puts her foot in a plastic basket and tries to walk.  “This is for my charley horse.”  Takes two clumping steps.  “I guess I don’t have a charley horse any more!”  Runs to her room.

    LOVE the illustration. Is it an original?!

    • zstitches says:

      It’s original in the sense that nobody’s ever stuck that particular horse head on Charlie Brown’s body before. But I just Image Searched to find the head.

    Rose still takes naps?! Sooooo jealous.

      Sort of. Especially since Daylight Savings we haven’t been getting the kids to bed on time so if I let her lie down on my water bed she’ll often actually fall asleep. Henry, on the other hand, typically spends his whole nap playing with toys and getting out of bed for drinks of water. Mainly I insist they be quiet for about an hour after lunch.
