about a dream: it's not the end of the world!

it's not the end of the world!

sometimes maggie's responses to life's dissappointments are--shall we say?--a bit overly dramatic. so i've been trying to teach her to take a deep breath, calm down, and get some perspective. "it's not the end of the world," i'll tell her.

well. today there was a misunderstanding, based on how similar "burrito" and "dorito" sound. when she realized that we had the former in the house, but not the latter, it was too much to bear.

"noooo!!!!" she wailed. "it's the end of the week! it's the end of the week!"

haha! she's so cute, even when she's distraught over doritos.

i told her i was sorry, but that i was offering her burritos, leftovers from dinner last night.

"nooooo!" she wailed again. "i want doritos. the orange ones that papa likes. in the blue bag!"

those are the "cool ranch" (or perhaps "cooler ranch") flavored doritos. nick was impressed that maggie knew exactly which ones she wanted.

well, nick can't take that dorito sorrow, so he picked up a bag for our little dear when he took nina out to Y arts. so don't worry, the week isn't ending after all!
