today was a special mommy/pooka day. i took a half day from work and we had a special lunch of pinwheels and kiwis. then we went to the movies to see 'arthur & the invis*bles'. we then stopped at t*ys r *s to shop for a present for one of pooka's friends who has a birthday party coming up. i told pooka that she could have one small toy and she chose a tool kit. once we got home, we were fixing everything in the house. while we were working the living room, she wanted me to do the fixing, but i told her she was the fixer and i was the assistant to hand her the tools. she protested this, saying she was just the kid, and i was the 'mother-fixer'. doesn't that sound rude?
