heard in the car, today; a synopsis

Daughter: “Can I go live with Dad? He has a dog.”

Me: “No.”

Daughter: “Can I go to horse camp? It only costs $500.”

Me. “No.”

Daughter: “Can you quit your job and become a doctor? They make more money than you do and then you could afford horse camp.”

Me. “No.”

Daughter: “Can I have a frog? He can live with my fish.”

Me. “No.”

Sigh.

    Gee, that sounds rather familiar . . . trying to think of where I’ve heard similar conversations. *coughs* My daughter denies everything; she’ll make an excellent president some day.

      I get those denials even now. Plus I “embarrassed” her at dinner last night when she had a friend over, but none of us can remember what I did/said (my theory is, is you can’t remember it, it couldn’t have been that bad). As if going through high school trying to be who everybody else thinks you should be wasn’t bad enough, do I have to do it again in my 40s?

    Wow. I remember those days. Mine is 25 now…I’d give anything to go back. Well…maybe not, now that I recall the green hair and teen years. Let her have the frog. 🙂

      But she already has a cat, a snake, and a fish! I have already broken one of the cardinal rules of parenthood: never have more pets than you have children living at home.
