Lauryn, my energetic five-year-old, is set for the summer in her new swimsuit, complete with a ruffled skirt. Today, she informed me that we should leave Mommy and Josh at the store, Joe and Amy at school, and head off to a hotel, just the two of us. “What would we do,” I asked? “Swim, play with toys, and eat hamburgers with ketchup only, french fries, hot dogs, and juice,” was her reply.
This is a girl with a plan.
