When Patience Expires

Pursy had been pestering me for 20 minutes to come draw crayons with her. I was trying to put dishes away and start dinner so kept buying time by encouraging her to draw difficult things, like a school bus or a bumblebee.

It was quiet for a minute or two and I thought my brilliant plan was working.

Then I heard a sigh...

I looked down and Pursy was leaning on the kitchen island looking at me. When our eyes met, she let out a dramatic sigh and said: "Mama, I am so lonely..." (she doesn't have her "Ls" yet so it sounded like "wonewey".

I hope Grant isn't that hungry when he comes home from work in 20 minutes. I am going to draw a bumblebee.
