Here are just a few of the things I’ve heard from Miss Sassy Pants in the past 24 hours:
I got my children all excited by attempting to replicate my mother’s legendary mackerel for the first time. She always cooks this for my children and it has magical, highly-addictive properties…kind of like crack cocaine.
My daughter took a bite and said, “Don’t take this the wrong way…I’m not saying it’s bad…it’s just not the same as Grandma’s.”
This morning when she came downstairs in a pair of shorts and a t-shirt I told her, “It’s not going be that warm today.”
She replied, “Mom. I was sweating so much yesterday, I practically drowned.”
As I was driving her to school this morning she said out of the blue, “You should enjoy being taller than me. While it lasts.”
