Ash (6 yr old) was telling me about what goes on in the girls bathroom.... she said they're lining up waiting for everyone to go and that's when they all gossip and ask each other about rumors they've heard. What???? so I asked her to re-enact a bathroom scene from first grade and she gladly obliged, adding that they don't have any mirrors so it's not like they're fixing their lipstick or anything. She told me she asked some little girl today if it was true that she had kissed a boy in their class and then the little girl went through all the details!!!!! OMG.
These kids are SIX... what the heck!!!!!! Did you kiss any boys at six??? I sure didn't!!!!
Then Syd chimed in and started to tell me about her school and the fourth grade drama that goes on. She is the kind of kid who's really mellow and doesn't get too involved, she's just friends with everyone. She did tell me that she asks everyone what's going on and will say things like "what's the gossip, girlfriend?" she has to know the juice... just like her Mama. Then she let me in on some of the stuff she listens to when the baby sitter is on her phone... she was highly amused to tell me that the sitter actually uses the word "besties" when referring to her friends... I'm not sure why but that really tickled young Syd. I really tickled me to see her so tickled. I love it!!!!
I just hope that this relationship will continue where they let me in on their little inner sanctums and confide in me so that I can splash it all across the blogosphere for all to enjoy!!! Notice I"m not naming names or being specific... we'll save that for when I really need the amo,,, and need it I will, I'm sure of that. I was a teenager once myself and I"m under no illusion that this fairy tale romance between me and my darling daughters will remain so blissful without the odd hiccup or two along the way.... watch this space!!!!!
Yep.... they're a couple o' goofs that's for sure!!!!!
