It was another one of "those" days. During my morning shower, Annie and Maddie ate something near a dozen cookies (together, not each) from up on the kitchen counter. Maddie took her yogurt at lunch down to her bedroom and spilled it over her floor. The little sweetheart made sure she hit her area rug in addition to the hardwood. And the wall. And the floor in the hall (my first clue something was up.) And once I got them in their room for nap (again, and again, and again, and finally locked in), my van inexplicably started honking. Repeatedly.
Maddie had stolen my car keys.
I think it must have happened after I took Emma and Elizabeth to school, had carried Maddie inside and dumped my purse on the floor before going back to grab Annie.
On the bright side, Annie has begun a new way to address me. She will curtsy and call me, "Your Highness."
I like it. I think maybe all the girls should address me as, "Your Highness" when they want something.
