Andrew’s So Proud

30 Aug

Nate to me while in line at the grocery store – “Look Momma Look!  Fish Boon!”

Me responding to Nate – “No honey, that’s a shark balloon.”

Cashier to me – “Uh, that’s a dolphin.”


Me, trying to spell a word while trying to tell a story at the same time – “W-h-i-t.”

Andrew’s response, filled with sarcasm – “W-h-i-t?”

Me, not getting the sarcasm – “Yeah.”

Andrew’s response minus the sarcasm and filled with concern – “W-H-I-T?”

Me, finally realizing my brain fart – “Oh!  You know I know how to spell white!”


Me, trying to teach Nia that she lives in the United States of America – “It’s like when you say the Pledge.  ‘I pledge allegiance to the United States of America.'”

Andrew, half smiling in mockery – “‘… to the flag.'”

Me – “Yeah, ‘I pledge allegiance to the United States of America.'”

Andrew, more emphatically – “… ‘TO THE FLAG.'”

Me, understanding my terrible teaching – “Oh!  Right!  ‘I pledge allegiance to the FLAG of the United States of America.'”

Meanwhile, Nia is looking at me like “Geez Mom!”
