Yeah, my neighbors laughed at me when they saw me doing this on Saturday, but who was laughing this morning while they chiseled a quarter inch of ice from their cars. You guessed it, me, that's who.
Lily wants to stay up longer: "Mom, I'll massage your feet if I can stay up." And she yanks my entire leg up onto the sofa: "Ahhh! Lily! I'm an old woman, not a wishbone!"
She has been on the floor laughing for 10 minutes and is not massaging my feet... now she has the hiccups.
Lily while discussing using something that some of her international friends find scandalous - tampons:
Friend: "How can you do that? You won't be a virgin any more!"
Lily: "Of course I'm a virgin, using tampons has nothing to do with it! This is America sister!"
On the way home Lily was telling a story about her day and mentioned a boy named, let's call him 'Joey'. Meika comments, "Oh, I like him, he was nice to me."
In that horrible sing song voice that children use, Lily: "Oooooooooooo, you like Joey, I'm gonna tell him."
And without missing a beat, in the driest voice that a seven year old could possibly muster, Meika replies: "Yes. You have discovered my deepest secret, I love Joey. Well done."
I was still laughing ten minutes later.
Me: "Meika, you've been getting a lot of yellow cards lately at school." (yellow card is a warning) "What is going on?"
Meika: "I've just been acting silly too much. I make jokes."
Me: "Oh, so you think you are funny, huh?"
Meika: "Actually, yes."
Me: "Well, you are going to get yourself into trouble if you keep it up."
Meika: "I am what I am."
