Oh, Christ. I so didn't want this to turn into one of those lame ass Mommy Blogs. But sometimes I have to share. Because the shit Lily says is funny.
Since she started kindergarten, Lily's and my evening dinner exchanges have gotten more and more interesting. Also, more random.
Sample dinner conversation 1:
Lil: I had a great day.
Mom: That's great, baby. How come?
Lil: I can't tell you. I'm......concentrating.
Lil: I get to be the lollipop fairy at school all week.
Mom: Really? What's the lollipop fairy do?
Lil: Well, we get to help Monique (the teacher) and pick one boy to be the boy lollypop fairy. I picked Alexander V. He is sooooo nice to me. Sometimes he is mean to other people and he gets time outs. But not to me. I am in looooove with him.
Mom: Love? Really. Wow. What's it like to be in love?
Lil: Well, we're going to be best friends forever. Until 5th grade. Also, Tiffany wants to be in love with Alexander V., but I am in love with him. He pulls his socks up to his knees. That's how I wear my socks now.
(5 minutes later)
Lil: Who did I say I was in love with, again?
Conversation 3 (bedtime):
Lil: Guess what I want to be for Halloween?
Mom: (sighs wearily): Let me guess. Cinderella again?
Lil: No, a pumpkin!!!
Mom: Awesome! Grandma and I will totally make you a costume!!! We can get orange tights, and paint your face...
Lil: Actually, No...I think instead I want to be a potato.
Stay tuned, y'all.
