Fibbing Fellows Need Not Apply

Proudly showing me the "goody bag" she collected for a male school chum...

Sarah (excitedly): "See Mommy, I'm giving K this superball--and it's a good one--a Matchbox car, this lollipop-shaped magnet, this fake ruby---he can put it in his mom's cereal box and she'll be so surprised---and this penny."

Mommy: "Is it a lucky penny?"

Sarah: "No, it's just a penny,"

Mommy (with woman-to-wee woman seriousness): "Sarah, is K your boyfriend?"

Sarah (thoughtfully, after a significant pause): "No, he's not. He's very nice, and he's a kind friend, but I think he lies too much to be a boyfriend."

No doubt, her criterion will evolve, but for now, this mother admires her daughter's "dating" decisions.

Rebecca said...

She learned the first rule of dating...trust what your man says! If you can't, then he's not right for you.

Such a wise comment for such a young girl. Off the subject, I just realized you wrote Twinspiration. I had no idea until I saw the book on the left of the screen. That book helped keep me sane when I was expecting my twins. I always recommend it to others expecting twins. Thanks for writing it.
