Oh, dear! What am I going to do with Anna and Merida? Yesterday they did something pretty sneaky….
“Are you sure it’s okay to be out here?” Anna asked. “Yeah! The door was open, so we came out! If you don’t wanna be out here, then go inside.” Merida replied.
Merida walked off and Anna stood there watching her.
“Well, the door was open…” Anna said to herself, then hurried to join her sister.
“You wanna climb this slide?” Merida asked excitedly.
“I don’t know… Prob’ly not.” Anna said, unsure if I would be okay with that.
Anna and Merida walked around the yard for awhile, then finally they stopped and just stood.
“Merida? Are you mad?” Anna asked, breaking the silence.
“Everything fun I wanna do, you’re saying no to.” Merida replied with a tone of annoyance.
“I like fun, but I don’t know if mama would want us to do those things.” Anna explained.
Merida hung her head down and didn’t say a word. “Merida?” Anna asked.
Merida swooshed her head away from her sister. “I’m sorry, Merida.” Anna said sweetly, but Merida didn’t move.
“Do you wanna play hide and seek?” Anna asked. Merida turned her head slightly with a little smirk.
“1….2….3….4….” Merida stood by a pole and counted to ten.
Anna found a place to hide and giggled. “She won’t find me here!” She thought.
“HERE I COME!” Merida yelled.
Merida walked around, then she tilted her head…
“FOUND YOU!!” Merida yelled from across the pool. Anna laughed and laughed.
Anna ran over to her sister, still laughing. “How’d you find me?” Anna asked. “I saw your hair!” Merida replied.
I realized that Anna and Merida were nowhere in the house, so I decided to look outside. “Anna, Merida, what are you doing out here?” I asked firmly.
Anna hung her head down and Merida stared to the side with a smirk.
“Anna, do you want to tell me what you’re doing out here?” I asked gently, but Anna shook her head “no”.
I sighed and looked over at Merida. “How about you tell me?” I asked. Merida’s smirk grew bigger, and I knew, by the look in her eyes, that I was in for a very dramatic (and not true) story…
Do you have any sneaky “kids”?
