I am mighty!

Or also, “Fun with Pea.”
There’s some road construction on the way to Pea’s school, and the two-lane road narrows to one lane, with flaggers on either side of the construction zone indicating to motorists when to go. Until yesterday, we’d only seen male flaggers.
Pea saw the flagger as we went by. “Mom! A woman! And she’s beautiful!” She was awestruck.
And a few days previously…
M and I have been joking about this Tick clip
since it aired, because yes, we watched these on Saturday mornings when they first came out and even recorded them on VHS for a long time.
I was talking to Pea in the car, and we were talking about planets. I asked her what her favorite planet is.
She said, in a very no-nonsense way, “The Earth. That’s where my stuff is.”
I just about died, especially since I don’t think we’ve joked about it in front of her. Some days, I love this kid so much it hurts.
