Most of the day we have been discussing heading out of town a little way in order to have some delicious pizza for supper. When we go, we will also bring back some of their to go, uncooked pizzas to freeze for another time. (What can I say, we live in an area where the pizza choice's suck, and sometimes I just want to not have to cook!) Hubby and I have asked all three kids who wants to go along. The girls were all for it, Mr 18 was unsure that he wanted to take that trip with us, and so has waited until the last minute to decide. In an effort to wake him up from his afternoon nap (because it annoys me that he thinks he can stay out late, then nap half the afternoon away) I asked Miss 10 to go tell him that we were leaving in 50 minutes. Here is a recap of the conversation:
"Miss 10, will you please go knock on his door and tell your brother that we are leaving at 4:50?"
"OK!" And she skips to his door and disappears briefly. When she comes back I quizzed her.
"Well, what did he say?"
"I told him, Mr 18, we are leaving at 4:50, and he said "for where?" and I said, "I don't know!" and shut the door."
Hubby and I laughed until we had tears in our eyes. Meanwhile she blushes, and didn't understand what was so funny. We've been discussing this brief trip with them most of the day, and how excited we are to go have some good pizza for once. It's so innocent that because I didn't exactly spell it out for her she was oblivious to what she was telling her brother, yet she still went and did just what I told her.
She makes me laugh! Not only is she funny outright, but also she's still funny in those subtle. little kid ways that only parents see the humor in.
Happy Love Thursday everyone!
