We were coming out of the middle school after Daniel's band concert, and were walking across the parking lot toward our van. Elizabeth darted over and pulled open the sliding door of a van that was NOT OURS. I was like, "Uh, Elizabeth? That's not our van."
She said really loudly, "THAT WAS SO EMBARRASSING!!! I HOPE NO ONE SAW THAT!! DID ANYONE SEE THAT??? I AM SO EMBARRASSED!! I CAN'T BELIEVE I ALMOST GOT INTO THE WRONG VAN!!"
Probably no one would have noticed if she had just calmly walked away. Heh. She definitely keeps life interesting!
The kids set the table for dinner, and as we sat down, Daniel said, "Oh, I forgot napkins!" Rebecca said, "We don't need napkins!" I said, "Yes, a proper table should always be set with napkins." Rebecca asked why. I explained, "Because we're civilized." She said with contempt, "We are NOT CIVILIZED!!"
Daniel's 5th grade music program was tonight. One of the songs they sang was "Livin' on a Prayer" by Bon Jovi. They introduced the song, and then a few kids came out in '80s clothes with guitars and one even had a big hair band wig on. I looked over at Rebecca, and she looked absolutely horrified. I asked, "What's wrong?" She said, "THAT is NOT what it looks like when you're living on a prairie."
My mom should be happy to know that her legacy
lives on our family. When Elizabeth hangs out in the bathroom for
FOREVER the moment she has a chore to do, we all say she's "pulling a Peggy!!" Love you, Mom! (And you too, Elizabeth!)
