Gavriel Zev, looking at the poster I put up for the play Naomi went to with my mother today: “Mermaids?”
Me: “It’s Cinderella; she’s not a mermaid. Mermaids live in the water.”
He follows me into the kitchen.
“I like… I like… I li… I like… I like… MERMAIDS! I like mermaids? I like mermaids!”
“Yes, you do. You can talk to Naomi about Mermaids!”
Runs into the bedroom and announces: “I like mermaids!”
Naomi: “I like them, too!”
Gavriel Zev: “I like PRINCESSES!”
They are so happy right now to be reunited after their (brief) morning apart… I will be happy next week when their programs start up again and they have some time away from each other. Naomi has been (often literally) at his throat the last two weeks.
