being in orbit sounds pretty good today

Someone took a very short nap today. On a day when I am 9 months pregnant and exhausted and pukey. So this is a bad combination.

She wanted me to go upstairs and get her something. I told her she could go get it.

"I'm sorry, Mama. But I'm not brave enough."

Righto. I psyched her up, encouraged her to take a stuffed companion with her for support, and up she went.

Came down 5 minutes later, totally empty handed.

I asked where her loot was. "Oh, I forgot. Can you get it for me?"

No no dear child, I told her. You can go get it.

She sighed. "I will in a minute. I gotta prepare for liftoff."
