An evening with the Spawn

An evening with the Spawn


We were headed home from the grocery store last night when the mailman passed us along the way.

"Is that the mailman? It's like 6 O'clock."

Rolling her eyes in the seat next to me, the Spawn dramatically tossed her head back and exhaled with frustration.

"We can all see, Mom, you don't need to point out every single observation."

"If I were pointing out every single observation, then I would have pointed out that black thing you've got stuck between your teeth when we were at the grocery store."

"What?!?"

Flipping down the sun visor with her teeth bared, she pushed her face next to the mirror and scrutinized.

I lied.

I burst out laughing when she poked my arm and said...

"Mom!!"

By now she was laughing too.

Grabbing the mail out of the mailbox as I pulled into the driveway, I started sifting through it before getting out of the car.

"Oh My God! My voter registration card is here!"

Yah, I'm that nerdy girl who gets excited about that stuff. I immediately grabbed my purse and tucked it away in the important documents zippered lining pocket.

"Really Mom?!? You're like a 1970's ....."

"At least I don't have a black thing stuck between my teeth."

Guess who had the sun visor down inspecting her bared teeth once again......

Happy Saturday!

Ms. secret_lade,

It is always a good thing to keep the young ones on their toes, so to speak.

    I love it how she looked twice to see if she had something in between her teeth. Another good blog to read when I'm having my coffee.
I'm glad you enjoyed!

My current favorite is asking for help in the store. She HATES it when I ask employees for help, so I go out of my way to do it now. Yesterday I asked someone in the produce department at Family Fare if she could tell me where the oranges were. Ha ha ha ha I knew where they were.

I still can't believe she fell for it twice. I laughed even harder the second time around.
