21st century indigenous

I let my second child entertain herself by decorating me.

This led, of course, to an argument with her sister.

E: You look weird, mom.

L: No, she doesn't!

E: Yes, she does.

L: No, she DOESN'T!!!!!

I decided to mediate. Or instigate-- sometimes, magically, those two can be the same thing. "I think I look pretty."

E: No, just weird.

L seized on the opportunity to make peace, as she so often does. Well, she just looks pretty. But she IS weird.

E: Yeah.

I'm so glad they found a way to agree.
