Now, a weekend recap of our conversations...
Brookelynn: Do you want a milkshake?
Me: Yes. Oreo, please.
[Brookelynn leaves to make me a milkshake from sand]
Me: I really don't like playing pretend.
My mom: I know. You always had a hard time with it when you were younger.
Me: I think I finally figured it out--you do it really quickly so it's over soon.
Danae: Brookelynn, you need to finish your dinner.
Brookelynn: But I'm fulllll.
Danae: You need to finish it.
Me: Look, Brookie, it's going to be a lot quicker to finish those two bites than argue with your mom. Trust me.
Brookelynn: Aunt Kristie, you need to wax the hair above your lip.
Me: Oh, really?
Brookelynn: Yeah. You have too much.
Me: Okay, I will. You know, I'm your aunt and I don't care, but for future reference, if you notice hair right there on someone else you probably shouldn't say anything. It might make them cry.
Me: I want to make a July 4th cake and I don't want any help so I can take all the credit for it.
Kierra & Brookelynn: Aunt Kristie, can we please help?
Me: Fine. You can crack the eggs.
Kierra: Can we lick the bowl too?
Me: Sure. I'm not your mother, so a suger high is fine by me.
Kierra: Can we do it now?
Me: No. We're waiting until later.
Kierra: But I want to do it now.
Me: Look, if we're tring to see who is going to be more stubborn, I'm going to win every time.
My mom: Kierra, she's right. You've got nothing on her.
I know what you're thinking....I'm going to win aunt of the year.
