My Life’s Quirks – Again More Conversations With My Family
While eating at a restaurant one day, my daughter starts coming up with a story with us as the main characters. Note to remember, my daughter is 7 years old.
Daughter: “You are the princess…no, the angry princess. No, angry princess #4.
Daughter: “And daddy is the tickle dragon.”
Me: “Ooo the tickle dragon?!”
Daughter: “Yes! Daddy is the tickle dragon that tickles you all night long…”
Me: *spits out my drink laughing*
Jason (to daughter): “Who is the boss here?”
Daughter: “Well…mommy is the boss of the daycare. Daddy is the boss of the children.”
Jason: “What are you?”
Daughter: “I’m the boss of my little brother.”
My daughter comes up to me one day, a confused look on her face.
Daughter: “My friend told me something today and I wonder if it’s true.”
Me: “Okay. Well tell me what she said and we’ll figure it out.”
Daughter: “She said that before a boy asks a girl to marry him, first he touches her private parts then they dance naked and then they kiss.”
Me: *crickets in background* *blinks* “Um…no sweetie. That is not how it goes. Oh my goodness…LOL! Um…let mommy and daddy set it straight.” (and we did)
Again more conversations with my family. Just another one of my life’s quirks.
