We were having a lovely discussion with the children yesterday. Yes, they were MY children.
I mentioned that Reilly the Red doesn't have school next Monday, for Presidents' Day.
Captain Jake Sparrow wanted to know if 'he' had to go to school that day.
I thought for a minute, and then I said, "No Jake, you can stay home, and maybe we can do a family activity, just the four of us.
From the backseat, I heard a low, loud groan. I wasn't sure if it was human, or an engine malfunction.
And then it got louder.
I realized it was Reilly the Red's Eeyore impression - "EEEN - Unnnnnnh"
Which means, "Mom. I am seriously pissed off."
I asked her what was wrong.
She said, "WHY does Jake have to be off from school just because I'M off?"
I asked what the problem was?
Reilly the Red: "BECAUSE!!! It's my ONE day AWAY from HIM!"
So eloquently put, beautiful linguist daughter of mine.
So eloquently put.
