So as of late, Lauren has become very enthralled with the Little Mermaid. After watching the movie at her friend's Sophie's house she and Grant have played Little Mermaid very regularly. For Lauren's birthday she tells anyone who will listen (including the servers at restaurants) that she is going to have an Ariel party. So this morning Lauren and Grant were playing the Little Mermaid. Lauren, as she has many times before, was informing us all what part we played. Lauren was Ariel,of course, Grant was Sebastian, her friend Sophie was Flounder, Harvey was Prince Eric, and you guessed it--Mommy was Ursula. Now, I'm not sure if I keep getting assigned that part because Lauren wants me to feel like I have an important role, or if it somehow reflects how Lauren views me as a mom. I guess I may never know.
