1. Natalie is “reading” an article about wooly mammoths in the doctor’s office: (my spelling is an attempt to accommodate her pronunciation)
“The ruly mammoth is 14 inches like bunny rabbits or kids. It is extince. To find out more call 372457. ”
2. Seth has some activities with kids that live an HOUR from our house, so there is some driving involved in all this. Friday night, Natalie and I drove him out to meet his friends and decided to hang out in that area. She was hungry and we drove around looking for a pizza place. She spotted Giordano’s Pizzeria and said, “Let’s go there! I LOVE that place! I threw up there!”
So yes. We had dinner there. She didn’t throw up this time.
3. Natalie woke up late this morning because I decided to let her sleep in – half day at school, which really means only 2.5 hours of school. Well, she wakes up and says, “I want to go to school!”
Me: Okay – hurry up and get dressed and I’ll whip you over there.
Natalie: Is it okay if I ride a skateboard over there?
(Aside – the kid can’t ride a skateboard. She can maybe sit on one and keep from tipping over. That’s it.)
Me (under my breath, forgetting she has superhero hearing): Sure, if you don’t mind the falling, getting hurt, and dieing part.
Natalie (enthusiastically, clearly having heard me): OKAY!! I’ll get my shoes on.
