Playing games

We played Spoons tonight. G got frustrated after getting her fourth letter (Spoo) and tossed her cards across the table and they slid on the floor. Then she got a very sheepish look on her face and said "I'm gonna go pick those up now......" I may have laughed hysterically. And then sucked it up and told her that was not the best display of sportsmanship.

All political all the time....

A few weeks ago, A wanted to buy soemthing and she needed a few more dollars. I offered to pay her $5 if she would plant all my tulip bulbs. She agreed.

Today, she decided she no longer needed the money and even tho it's the warmest day we've had in three weeks, she doesn't want to plant my tulip bulbs. When her dad asked why she no longer needed the money, I reminded him of something he's been saying for weeks....

"because Obama got re-elected."

The girls and I were playing Apples to Apples. The word was "soft" and M was deciding which card best represented it. She read the choices aloud, "mittens, bugs, jello" and then said, "speaking of nose, last night when I threw up, it came out my nose."

Interesting segway, don't you think?

My kid isn't psychic

Saturdays are often lazy days around here.  Today I cooked a big breakfast for my family but someone left the tv on while we ate. A commercial for a famous psychic came on which led to the following conversation.
M asked what a psychic does and I told her they talk to the dead.
The DaddyMan asked why she had funny hair.
A asked if I could talk to the dead.
I was confused and asked why.
She responded, "then what's with your hair?"

Harumph. Some people just don't appreciate bed head.
