From the Mouths of Babes...

So ... we are sitting down as a family Saturday night past, watching a movie: Ice Age 3, Dawn of the Dinosaurs - or "Donna, the dinosaur as my children call it). For any of you familiar with this franchise, Scrat finds love (of sorts) in this installment. My youngest child, 'Shorty' (who isn't very short these days ... she's taken quite a spurt since starting school) pipes up at one point and says (and I quote): "NOOOO, SCRAT!!! DON'T DO IT!!! WIVES CAN BE VERY FRUSTRATING!!!

I thought sure there would be a wet spot under my husband (or me, for that matter) when he stood up, he laughed so hard.

Then, last night she was playing a game on line and my mother was watching her. Mom pipes up and says: "Geezzzz ... I have a hard time following this game of yours." To which, Shorty replies: "Well ... of course you do, Gamma - this web site is for K-I-D-Z (yes, she spelled it out) not adults!"

This kid makes me laugh.

The other one ... on the other hand is trying to see if it is possible to actually make my head explode - no doubt just for the enjoyment of the experiment. I've never seen anyone who could push me the way she does ... unreal.

Happy Tuesday!

Bwahahahahahaha Shorty is my kind of gal! And Stretch...life isn't complete until you can have someone who can push all your buttons at will (trust me...been there, still doing that, eventually it kinda grows on you).
