Looking in the mirror after my hair appointment, I wonder "are the highlights orange?" I ask Lou, "do you see orange in my hair?" Lou, "oh no! I'm scared! I don't want you to die! I'm telling daddy! AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!"

Guess it's a hat day.

Conversations during the Ballet Carpool

Girl 1: Did you know a boy said the F word at school?

me to myself: Holy cow these girls are only 6!!!

Girl 2: My mommy won't tell me what the F word is.

me to myself again: Good parenting skills.

Girl 3: I know what the F word is!

me in panic mode: Girl 3 is my daughter!!!

me out loud: You do?

Girl 3: yes. want me to tell you?

me to myself: yes. I mean NO! Can I imagine that little face saying that word?

me to her: what is it

Girl 3: I'll whisper it (She cups her hand to my ear ) faaarrrrt

me relieved to myself: that reminds me of the forte story

out loud: That's not really the right word.

Girl 1, 2 and 4: What did you say???

Girl 3 proudly: I said faaaarrrt!

Girls 1,2,3,4: High squeaky laughter

me: This could have been so much worse...
