On the Ropes

Talking about her participation in the school's "Jump for the Heart" jumprope-athon for the American Heart Association...

Mommy: "With the number of sponsors you have, you'll get a free jumprope as a gift. Since you already have one, maybe you can give this one to me. I could exercise with one, too."

Sarah: "No, Mom. It's a kids' one. You would need a longer one."

Mommy: "Because I am so tall and lovely?"

Sarah: "When you put some makeup on you are."

Kids! But oh how funny they are.

I do not think I ever posted this story but I went shopping and took the girls. I was trying on a dress & they were watching me.
Emma, "Does it fit?"
Me, "No
Abby, "Is you BOO-TAY too big?"
Me, "Um, no the dress is too big.
Emma, Is your BOO_TAY too big
(I begin to hear snickering in the next 3 dressing rooms - GREAT!!)

Leave it to Sarah to give me my first good laugh of the day! Too funny...I'm pretty sure Rowan and Evan think the same thing about me. :)

Tracy said...

By the way, thanks for your recent comment. Do me a favor and go back a couple posts. There is a picture of Rowan that I want you to be sure and see. Actually, there are two. One with Gus, and the other looking lov-er-ly. :)

I note you didn't ask the follow-up question "what about when I'm not wearing makeup?" Hee hee. Very funny the way she thinks.

Oh is Sarah and The Little Miss in communication? I am regularly talked to about not putting on make up or not enough. Girls!

Oh my word, Cheryl, that is HILARIOUS!!!

And this Mommy thinks you are tall and lovely, even without your make-up on. :)

Hugs!
