Tea Party Time!

Mim is obsessed with her new "house" toys. We have had innumerable (and interminable) tea parties. This evening, Daddy introduced a new, heretofore unmentioned addition to "tea party time" by putting actual tea in the cups. Bless his pointed little ears. It was just about the cutest thing I've seen, though when Mim and Daddy were both drinking their tea.

My husband is a great father. Like everyone, he has his moments. Here are some of the things heard tonight at bathtime. (Which Daddy handles single-handedly every night, as a sign of constant love and devotion to his grateful wife.)

(Daddy said something about Zay and Mim's soap being a surfactant.)

Zaya - What does surfactant mean, Daddy?

Daddy - A surfactant changes the surface tension of a fluid and makes it easier for the particles of that fluid to be wetted out.

Zaya - Oh.

and then, on a slightly less academic note,

Daddy - No! Do not pick your nose with your toothbrush!

My mother always bought our girls a new tea set every two years or so. She loved them as a kid and assumed (rightly) that after a couple of years the old set was scattered and lots of pieces lost.

Lovely Wife and I have had many tea parties with them. They were always thrilled when we used real tea and made itty bitty sandwiches and used their dishes.

It's kinda sad that those days are gone. At 18 and 21 they're disappointed with anything below a sit down meal at Chili's, with desert of course.
