Smart mouth

We went to the mall tonight. I got so tired of hearing "Mama!, Mama, Mama". It was constant. It seemed to come from everywhere. The kids wanted me to look at this. and that. and this. and that.

I finally told them they had an allottment of "Mamas". They could only say it six times. After that they needed to be silent.

Yeah. Right.

J-man ran out of his in about 5 minutes.

We walked in silence for a bit. Then I heard it...

"ummmm.... female..."

My kids thought I was doing work - that is how I get them to be quiet while I read you and my other favs - but dangit - when they hear me LAUGH OUT LOUD at my laptop, then they know that I am not doing billing or responding to customer emails.

uh...female? Wow...too funny. It didnt' take long past the birth of our second for me to figure out why my Mother used to walk around the house mumbling "I am going to change my name, I am going to change my name....."

Just too funny! Thanks
