My book club met last night, to discuss Jane Eyre. We had already read Pride and Prejudice, and to follow in the theme of women writers writing about strong women characters in a certain time period, we are reading Little Women next. I am so fortunate to be amongst my own strong women friends.
Before I left, Tate said "Oh, I hate when you go to book club!" and I asked her why, because she is truly my little shadow and I thought there was going to be a nice moment of motherly/daughterly love shared. But she said, "Because daddy never gives us dessert." Oh. Well. And then when she saw my look, she added, "and because I miss you...". Yeah, right.
