The Robber

On a recent date night at Angie's house, Dawson and Kaelin were pretending that there was a robber in the house. They were in their room (aka Kaelin's room) with their baby (one of Kaelin's baby dolls) when they heard the robber. Dawson grabbed the closest thing to a weapon he could find in the room - the cash register scanner which made a beeping sound when you pressed the button. He opened the door and went out to go get the robber. He was sneakily looking around the house for the robber when Kaelin came up behind him. He turned to her, shocked, and said, "What are you doing out here, woman! Get back inside and take care of the child!" She replied with a very sweet, "Oh, okay" and went back to the room with the little baby doll.
The funniest part of this story to me is that Dawson referred to Kaelin as "woman." Also, the beeping cash register scanner is pretty hilarious. And I'm fascinated that they took so easily to stereotypical gender roles - Dawson the manly protector and Kaelin the nurturing mother looking after the baby. They are so awesome. I love them and the cute ways they play together.
If the future they plan together comes true, they will be married with kids (not sure how many yet - it varies from 3 to 4). Dawson will have his dream job as a cashier at Target (good to see all my hard work in homeschooling is playing off) and Kaelin will stay at home and take care of the kids. Oh, and they won't live too far away and will visit us (Angie and me) often. :-)
