That's What Solana Said - September
Solana is allowed to watch two 30-minute shows a day. Every day she asks if she can watch a show and I always ask, "Did you do your homework? Did you clean your room?" She should anticipate these questions because she's required to complete these two tasks before watching a show but she almost always asks before doing them. After finishing her homework today (15 minutes of reading) she asked for a show and I asked, "Did you clean your room?" To my surprise, she said, "Yes!" She giggled when I acted shocked and said, "Aren't you surprised?!?! I already cleaned my room and you didn't even have to tell me! I just...magically did it!"
Mommy....um...never mind. I was just about to ask you something that I already knew the answer to! You would have said 'no.' Isn't that funny, Mommy? Hahahaha!
On our way to Nashville, "Are we driving in circles? Why is it taking so long?"
"We're not driving in circles, Solana. They just live really far away so it takes a long time to get there.
An hour and a half later we were almost there. "I'm glad we're almost there! It was getting boring driving in circles over and over again!"
"We were not driving in circles."
"Well, it sure felt like it."
"Mommy...where's the...um...oh! There it is! Aren't you glad I didn't ask you again? Because it's getting annoying. Even for me."
Solana was telling me about all the kids in her class. It was fascinating. When she got to one in particular she said, "but he's not my friend anymore because he sticks his tongue in his nose." I cracked up laughing and she said, "I KNOW!!!"
Reading 'Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs' for the 10th time or so but the first time since school has started. We get to the part where the giant pancake covers up the school and they have to cancel school. Solana groans a miserable sounding groan. Then they mention it again, "That would be terrible if they had to close the school. Terrible I say. Just terrible!" She sounds like she's practically in tears. Gotta love first graders :-)
There's a boy at school who's in love with me. (How do you know that?) Because he told me so. And I'm pretty sure there are a few other boys who are in love with me, too.
