Zelly at 3.75

Sunday, September 28th, 2003

Zelly’s closing in on 4 years old and acting every bit the teenager she’s going to be 9-10 years from now. Don’t get me wrong, she’s not asking for the car yet. She has, however, mastered the exasperated sigh. She uses it whenever we can’t understand what she’s saying. She’ll be telling us about her day, for instance, and use some word we don’t understand. She’ll repeat it and if we still don’t get it, she’ll repeat it louder — not that it becomes clearer that way. Finally, she’ll give up with a loud sigh and shake of her head. “Parents”, she seems to be saying,”How do they get so dumb?”
