OK, I have to post this very quickly as it seriously cracked me up. First I want to put up a disclaimer that we are an alcohol free household. My husband has been sober for more than 10 years now (yeah!) and I only drink in the company of my girlfriends which amounts to maybe once or twice a year (usually on quilt retreat).
I was brushing my daughter's hair this morning and it was particularly snotty.....which she loathes! She HATES having the knots combed out of her hair. I mean HATES it, I think she hates nothing more in this world.
So, anyway, I'm brushing her hair trying to be as gentle as I possibly can (while she stomps her foot and says OW!) and she says............ (drum roll)
"I need a drink!" (This with a completely pouty and SERIOUS face!)
I cracked up laughing and had to stop brushing her hair from laughing.
Hailey looked at me, completely bewildered and said,
"Mom, what's so funny? I'm thirsty, can you hurry?"
I couldn't help myself, and since she has grown up in an alcohol free house she had NO idea what was so funny about what she had said.
Too much I tell you.........I love my kid!
