Part of our kids’ “Non-School Morning Routine” includes the directive to “GO CREATE!”
AT RISE: The two kids come up to mommy working at the computer at the dining room table.
Gavin: Um Mamma? For “Go Create” today is it okay if CJ and I work on something together?
Mom: Sure honey, that sounds great.
[Gavin and ClaraJane are head down the hallway together, giggling.
Mom: Hey! What are you two giggling about?
Them: [Continuing down the hall.] (Giggle giggle.)
Mom: Hey! What’s so funny!
Them: [Disappearing around the corner.] (Giggle giggle!)
Mom: [Hollering down the hallway] I’m more scared than happy about you working on this together you know!
Them: (Giggle giggle!)
[Later: Gavin and ClaraJane reappear.]
Gavin: OK for our “Go Create” today we made up names for you and Daddy. [Turns to his sister.] You say it.
CJ: No you say it!
Gavin: OK, Mamma; you are GROUCHO MARXIMUS. Because you’re grouchy, but you’re funny!
Them: Ha ha ha!
CJ: And Dadda you are SIR TALL STINKS-A-LOT!
Them: Hee hee hee.
Mom: Gee thanks kids. That’s just. Great.
