|In which Roo attempts to be devious

As I was making the salad for dinner, Roo pulled up her step stool so that she could help me tear up the lettuce. This is a fine activity for her as long as I give her small pieces--she thinks whatever she has should be torn into exactly two parts and thrown in the bowl. When we were done, she and Little Girl both got a little piece to taste-test. It was pronounced 'done' and moved to the counter.
Roo then grabbed my finger (her favorite way of leading parents, siblings, and other dolts around) and pulled me out of the kitchen, through the dining room and into the living room. Normally at this point she would indicate what she wanted, but instead she let go of my finger and said, "Go! GO!" while waving me off. Then she turned around and charged back into the kitchen.
I gave her about ten seconds then followed. She had pulled her step stool up to the counter where I had placed the salad and was standing on it with one hand one reaching for a piece of salad. When she saw me, she got the most "I've been caught" expression I've ever seen on her face. I came so close to laughing and ruining my parental authority-figure image it wasn't even funny. *heh*
Sneaking is bad, but I think it's hilarious that the thing she's sneaking is salad and that she's so un-sneaky about sneaking it. :)
On a less funny note, when I was singing Little Girl's goodnight song tonight (they each have their own), Roo started saying, "Shudup, shudup, shudup," over and over again. Now, we never say shut up and I've never heard LG say it either, so I'm wondering where she learned that...
