Someday We’ll Laugh About It

One of these days, the Big One will acknowledge that she in fact does not know it all.

One of these days, the Big One will acknowledge that she in fact does not know it all.

…..

If I say it enough, will it become true?

…..

I know that it will probably not happen for at least another 20 years, but it will happen, right?  I am surprised at how turning 5 has suddenly made her the all knowing person in our household.  I honestly thought she wouldn’t become all knowing until she turned 10. Silly me.

…..

It started this morning while the girls were watching Diego. Diego was talking about some animal camouflaging itself for protection. She asked me what that word was.  I told her what it meant.  No, she said she knew what it meant, she forgot the word and wanted to know how to say it.  Okay, so I told her, “ca-mou-flage.” At which point she got real antsy and said, no, it’s “camel-fly.” I was like no, it’s not.

…..

And so we went back and forth. Of course, Diego is saying it 10 times on the show, but the Big One is too busy arguing with me to hear him say it correctly. I gave in and moved on with my day.

…..

Then this afternoon when we got home from preschool, I kicked the Barbie Jeep in the garage as I was getting out of the mom-mobile (not intentionally). As I struggled to hold my tongue and not let loose with a lot of very inappropriate words, the Big One, matter-of-factly  looks at me and says, “Maybe you shouldn’t be wearing flip flops, Momma.”

…..

Really? Thanks so much for that little miss bundle of wisdom.

…..

Maybe I should let her pick some Super Lotto numbers and see how that goes.
