Conversations With Alexis: Friends

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Scene: We're in the checkout line at the grocery store. Alexis is talking to our very friendly cashier.

A: "I don't have many friends."

Me: "Alexis! That's not true. What about Veronica and Max and Caroline and Kaitlyn and Catherine and Luke and Tyler and Lexie and..."

A interrupting: "Oh yeah! I forgot about them! I have lots of friends!"

Cashier: "She's adorable."

Me with a laugh: "She's a handful!"

Cashier: "The creative ones always are."

Me: "That they are. I think I'll keep her."

"I was looking for you on Facebook and I couldn't find you."

"That's weird."

"Then I realized you spelled your name wrong."

"My name isn't spelled incorrectly on Facebook."

"Yes it is, it's spelled 'D*i*a*n*n*e' instead of 'D*i*a*n*e'."

"That's because my name IS spelled 'D*i*a*n*n*e'!"

"It is? Are you sure?"

"Perfectly sure. I have been spelling it now for 30 plus years."

People really are idiots!

Fairy Dust

"Alexis, why is there gold glitter all over the floor?"

*In her best teenager trapped in an almost 9 year old body voice* "It's not glitter, it's fairy dust. Duh!"

Well I guess that settles that!

Conversations With Alexis

Scene: Alexis and I are at a restaurant today for lunch after visiting the library. A very tall, very handsome man in his late 40's/early 50's comes in and the waitress greets him as if she knows him.

A: Mom is that man famous?

D: *glancing over at the man in question* No. Why do you ask?

A: She's making a big deal out of him. *wrinkling her nose*

D: I think he's a regular costumer like us and she just knows him that way, but he's not famous.

A: Well he's very tall. He should be!

D: *I grin at her* I'm not sure it works that way.

A: *dismissively* Well it should.


Oh my naive little child, how I love you so. Most men from Hollywood are short. Being tall is not the norm, but I didn't have the heart to tell her.

"Mom I can't take a shower. It is thundering and I might get metricuted."

Alexis, Age 6 ;oP

Lex: *Huge Sneeze*

Me: Bless you!

Lex: (exasperated) Well that does it. No school for me today!

Me: (amused) Really? What makes you think that?

Lex: (rolling her eyes) I don't want to sneeze on my papers!

Me: (grinning) Nice try kid!

Lex: (grinning too) I know!

The Deer Are Eating My Apples!

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Scene: I'm cleaning up the kitchen and look out the window to see a deer munching on apples from the lower branches of our apple tree.

Me: Alexis there is a deer eating my apples. Do you want to see him before I scare him off?

Lex: (Excited) Sure!

(Lex looks at the deer and he looks back at her still muching apples.)

Me: OK, get ready because I'm going to scare him.

(I start to open the patio door and the deer takes off up into the woods up the side of the mountain. As long as we were just standing on the other side of the door looking at him he was perfectly content to just stand there and stare at us. Opening the door was another thing all together!)

Me: There! Now he won't eat anymore of my apples, for a few minutes anyway.

Lex: (In a very school marmish voice) Moooommmmm! Those are not your apples! Those are nature's apples and they are there so deer and other creatures will have something to eat!

Me: (Amused) Is that so?

Lex: (Exasperated) Yes!

Me: Well I don't see it that way.

Lex: (Helpfully) Maybe you should look at it differently.

My child the philosopher! ;oP

My Six Year Old Flirt

| 6 Comments | No TrackBacks

Scene: Coming out of the grocery store there is a handsome man standing on the sidewalk talking to a friend.

Alexis: (Looking at the man, blinking and then and giving him the best sweet grin you've ever seen.)

Dude: (Gives Alexis one of those melt the earth type of grins that only those drop dead gorgeous guys, who know they're handsome as sin, can do.)

Alexis: (In a loud voice): Mom he's hot!

Me: Alexis!

Dude: (Cracks up laughing and winks at her.)

Alexis: Well he is!

Me: Don't say people are hot when they can hear you!

Alexis: But Moooooooooooommmmmmmmmmm, he's cute!

Me: (Shaking my head as she and the dude keep grinning at each other.)

Can you imagine her teenage years? I don't think I want to! ;oP
