My Daughter Says the Darndest Things!

As I posted yesterday, my daughter had her birthday party at a bowling alley. All the kids had bumper guards so that they wouldn't bowl gutter balls! Nevertheless, bowling wasn't my daughter's strong suit! She had a blast and that's what counts.

Today, different family members called her to wish her a happy birthday. As she was talking to one of her aunts, I overheard my daughter say this: "I didn't get any strikes, but I had spares with leftover pins!" Hahahahaha! I love it! I wish I had thought of that line when I was on a bowling league in college.

I forgot to post this yesterday, but I asked my daughter what she wished for when she blew out the candle on her cupcake. She told me she wished for peace on Earth, no hunger, and no one should be homeless. I'm proud of her, but I'm angry at myself for asking her what she wished for! This will make it nearly impossible for her wishes to come true! If only I hadn't asked! D'oh!

The last little snippet I have to share is that my daughter went with me to the market on Saturday. We ran into the boy she has a crush on there. The two were having fun talking for about 15 minutes or so, which was great! The problem was that my daughter blurted out "I love you!" two times during the conversation, which made the encounter a tad awkward. After we went our separate ways from her "boyfrien," I tried to explain to my daughter that she can't go around blurting the "I Love Yous" like that. It can scare boys away. She told me she understood that a boy could say, "Ewwww" to that! She then thanked me for my "lovely advice."

She cracks me up!

  3. It was a blast talking to her last night. She is so funny! The last part of your blog, not saying "I love you" reminded me of a Seinfeld episode where George says "I love you" and gets nothing back. Jerry describes that as one big matzah ball hanging in the air! Awkward! It's good to take chances every now and again though!

  6. I know you are VERY proud of your smart, thoughtful,compassionate girl. And if she's so full of love that she feels the need to blurt it out, good for her :-) (I know it's easy for me to say that, and as a mom, I do *so* understand that the fear that someone will react in some way that will hurt our babies.) You are clearly doing a GREAT job.

  7. As long as she's over that "I love you" Tourette's by puberty I think she'll be OK.
