- Mom, you got some explaining to do about the tooth fairy
- You don’t know my pain
- Jazz hands
- I thought the bucket was a toilet
- I only had 5 bowls
This week was a doozy. All of the fun statements were made by my youngest daughter Skye. I love that she is so funny at times and I wish that she would show other people how funny she is. Other times I just shake my head of “did that really come out of her mouth”. well, here comes some of the back story of where these statements came from.
As my girls have lost their baby teeth I have kept them. My hope was to be able to give their teeth to them when they were older along with all their school keepsakes. I have put their grade cards along with fun things that they have made through the years in files. I have it separated by school year. The plan was to put the teeth in the folder just for them to have along with all this stuff. Well, that was the plan. Skye found where I have been keeping all of the teeth. She had found the group of teeth before but she believed me when I told her it was my baby teeth. This time she found a tooth that she lost that had a cavity in it. It was very different looking. She found the tooth and knew instantly that it was hers. She came out of the bedroom with the tooth in hand and said mom you got some explaining to do. When I went into by story of it was mine she called me on it. There was no talking my way out of this. Damn. I loved that she stilled believed in the tooth fairy. They grow up so fast. I had to tell her that I was the tooth fairy and she informs me that, you are not the tooth fairy mom” she has the evidence in here hand and she tells me I am not the tooth fairy. Okay, as long as she believes.
Wow, she is funny. One morning she walks into the living room and tell me that her foot hurts, she had just stepped of something in the bedroom. When I started to laugh because, hell, we all have been there done that, Skye did not like that. I thought that I was the only human alive that stepped on toys barefoot and then continued on limping into another room wanting to cry. I told Skye that I had done this more times that I would like to remember she said “but you don’t know my pain”. Really? I will step on the only toy in the room in the dark. Anyone else would not have that privilege, only me.
My little Skye is in the third grade and had a music program which is a right of passage as you get older. The programs are short and sweet and to the point which I love. I love my girls but sitting on a hard gym seat, crammed into a hot gym with 10,000 other third grade parent is not my idea of fun, so I digress. As all of the 8 and 9 year old’s are singing about spring the snow is blowing on my car. The end of one of the songs all of the kids do “jazz hands”. I thought that it was funny. It was a small chuckle as all of the kids sing on. That night when we got home she would out of the blue just say “jazz hands”. Now when the idea comes into her head jazz hands comes out of her mouth.
The last two statement happened in the same time. I thought that Skye was on a roll when she was telling me the story. Skye earned a limo ride to a pizza place for selling major saver cards. She thought that she was hot stuff. She told me. I get to ride in a limo and you don’t. That night when she got home from school I ask her about how was the ride? She was so excited to tell me that she got to ride with another little friend and the radio was on and they were singing along with it. Oh, mom, there was a trash can there in the limo and I thought that it was a toilet. OMG. She is not a blonde but sometimes she has her moments. Well, I guess if you got to go you got to go and anything will work according to Skye. Now her story started about the pizza place that she got to eat at. Skye informs me “That I only had 5 bowls of ice cream.” ONLY 5 BOWLS. You have got to be kidding me. I asked her if she actually ate any pizza and her response was one. I spent the rest of the night listening to Skye complain about a belly ache.
