I have laryngitis or pharyngitis or some other -itis. I just have very little voice at all right now. I can squeak out some syllables, and the rest is just a barky whisper.
You have to talk a lot when you have 3 year old. It's in the job description.
I was telling Caroline a cute story that a preschool friend's mother told me. The preschool friend's toddler sister was wearing a barrette in her hair, much like Caroline does 99% of the time. The little girl looked in the mirror and gasped and smiled and said, "Now I look like Caroline!"
After sharing this with Caroline, I asked (as best I could), "Isn't it so sweet that little Corinne was thinking of you?"
Caroline stared at me for a couple seconds and said, "You know, you sound like a goose. And a goat. You sound like a goose-goat, all at the same time."
