Conversation: Hobbits

Conversation while watching a tv commercial for the new Hobbit movie.

Chris: Well, thats one movie that I won’t be watching.

Me: Really? Why?

Chris: Just no interest…besides who do you think will really “win” in the end?

Me: The bad hobbits always win….

Chris: What do you mean?

Me: Because their enemies will eventually tire out…

Chris: What?

Me: Umm… everyone knows that it takes approximately 12 weeks to break a bad hobbit…… Ba Da Bum! ( my rimshot)

Chris: (with a smile) Very funny

Me: (with a bigger smile) Thank you!

Conversation in my car- Preteen Texting

Conversation in my car- Driving to pick up Allison at a friend’s house and our time was crunched …..

Me:  (handing my phone to Leah) Here, take this and text Allie and tell her to be watching for us and ready to go when we get there.

She did…

So a few minutes later…..

Me:  (as we are turning onto her friend’s street) Okay, text her again and tell her that we are here….

She did and Allison was waiting and got into the car….

When we approached the first stop sign on our way out of the neighborhood…

Allison:  So…. what’s up with the Poopy Pants

Me: What?

Allison:  What’s up with the Poopy Pants

Me:(not believing what I’m hearing) What?!

Allison: Poopy Pants

Me: What are you talking about?

Allison: You texted me “Poopy Pants”

Me:  Leah!…. What did you text on my phone?

Leah was doubled over in laughter….

Conversation in the Car: Halloween Costumes

Another conversation in the car-

Allison:  (In reference to her sister’s report card earnings) What? You pay her for good grades?

Me:  Yes, why?

Allison:  Mom, I made great grades in 9th grade and you never paid me… No encouragement… that might explain a whole lot…. You treat her so differently than you did Catie and me when we were her age….

Me:  No, not really

Allison: Yes, you do… she gets a new costume each Halloween… Catie and I were 50’s girls for years

Me:  No you weren’t.  You had new costumes each year but you just didn’t like them…. remember your Joan of Arc costume?

Allison:  Yeah, where did you get the outfit, Goodwill?

Me:  Uh, maybe….

Allison:  And Catie was Pippi Longstocking

Me: That’s because she asked to be Pippi… and you have to admit, it was a great costume

Allison: Mom, you braided her hair to a coat hanger…and put on non-matching socks… and what about Cinderella before and after?

Me: That was a great costume!

Allison: Mom, you even admitted that was a last minute costume… an old dress you ripped up and covered with makeup

Leah:  (chiming in from the back seat)  It was very creative, Mom

Me:  Thank you,  Leah…. I think all of them were very creative….

Allison:  Creative is the word you use when you don’t want to buy your kids a costume!

Me:  I think you’re right! And ‘you can do better’ are the words we use when we don’t want to pay our kids for their good grades…

We all laugh….

 

 

(Well, I guess we do get Leah new costumes each year… new to her anyway…)
