Rene' is fiercely smart. And I'm not just a proud mother. She really does scare me with her smartness. When she's doing something wrong she hides, she speaks very long sentences, and she knows just how to get her brother and sister's goat.
Last night, Andy and I were in the living room around 9:30. Andy hears something and goes to check on the kids. I see him go into our room and say "Rene'....." I laugh to myself because this is not the first time we've found her way past bedtime in a room other than hers, playing like its not big deal. Then I hear Andy groan. Curiosity gets me off the couch and I head to our bedroom where I see silver permanent marker all over our office chair. She is standing there in her adorable nightgown with her hair all in her face, talking about the markers she found.
Just 15 minutes before this happened. Andy was trying to talk me into having another baby.
I won that one.
