In Target and the 5 y.o. puts something back when asked. I tell her “good girl.” She acts all affronted and responds “Good girl? I am not a dog.”
"First I will try to be an actor. If that doesn’t work out, I will be a writer. If not that, an archaeologist. If not any of those, I will just be poor."
The 9 yr old’s career goals.
The joke’s on her. None of those make any money.
On drive to school this morning, 9 year old asks “What is the Phantom of the Opera about?” After I give her a brief description she replies “Does it have Oprah Winfrey in it?”
While cleaning up the 9 yr old’s puke, she says “Sorry, Mommy” and “Thank you Mommy.”
I hate that she is sick but I can’t help how feeling proud in that she is, at her core, such a good kid.
