It is a constant circus around here. I would like to say there is an order to our chaos, but that wouldn’t be true. This family of mine surely keeps me on my toes. Please, be entertained by our September edition of Thats What She Said. Even if there is a ‘he’ thrown in there 🙂
In the car, Kyndall was talking about how much she despises math and, specifically, multiplication. Libby got caught up on the word ‘multiplication’ because it was hard for her to say–she kept calling it mulch for vacation?? Kyndall was frustrated that Libby couldn’t say it. She said “Lib, repeat after me: Mult.” Libby said “Mult.” And Kyndall finished with “Tiplication.” Libby just looked at me. Yea, way to break it down for her Kyndall.
On a recent car ride, I dropped the top to Justin’s Mt. Dew down into the space between the seats. This happens often–I call that place the black abyss–and Justin always gets frustrated. When I announced that the lid was now lost forever, he looks at me, obviously frustrated, and says “Obvidently….” And then I cracked up, because that is sooo not a real word, babe. Also, “obvidently” is our new family word. Obvidently.
At school last week, Kyndall came into the library all flustered and asked “Mama, what am I?” Completely confused, I asked for more details. “Mom. I’m doing that survey in Mrs. Pearson’s room and I have to put what I am. There are like, 8 options. Am I white or what?” In her defense, her dad chooses Asian/Pacific Islander and I choose American Indian on these types of questions. She wasn’t sure what she was supposed to choose!
As we were pulling into Priceville’s North Park the other night, Justin was getting onto Libby for kicking the back of his seat. He said, “Libby, where are your feet?” She doesn’t miss a beat, answering “North Park!”
