Jennifer’s Birthday is next week. So, on the drive home from swim practice the girls and I discussed what kinds of things Jennifer likes, so that we might figure out a good present.
Me: “So, what do we think.”
Lucy: “Mommy likes me. And she likes Kathleen. She likes Clyde too, but she already has one of him.”
Me: “Good, we are narrowing things down.”
Kathleen: “She likes Elsa and Frozen.”
Me: “No, Kathleen, you like Elsa and Frozen.”
Lucy: “Mom likes hibernation.”
Me: “Where did that come from?”
Lucy: “We just learned about it at school. It’s when people sleep for a long time.”
Me: “Ok, but I think that is more daddy than mommy.”
Kathleen: “She likes Monster High.”
Me: “Again, Kathleen, that is you, not her.”
Somehow, we made very little progress by the time we reached home.
