Conversations Heard Around the Lunch Table

Emily: Mom, M emailed and asked me send some pictures because kids at school want to see what I look like. (Emily already has two girls from her school in Japan emailing her and they seem to have really hit it off)

Chris: The boys want to see what you look like. He he he he he

Sami: Emily is going to get a boyfriend.

Mom: Ugh... I guess you probably will have your first boyfriend while there considering you are in 7th grade now. (Mom trying to be a realist)

Emily: I don't have time for a boyfriend, but when I do I want him to be from Europe.

Mom: (no words as mouth hanging open)

Chris: he he he he he

Mom: Well I guess that would be pretty cool to say my first boyfriend was European. But what about when you or he leaves, that is a far distance. Maybe you should pick a boy from North America at least. (Again trying to be a realist)

Emily: Nope. Because my boyfriend will fall in madly love with me and follow me to the States.

Mom: (again, speechless)

Chris: My girlfriend will be from Australia. He he he he he he (As he makes some seductive eyebrow raising look)

Sami: My boyfriend will be daddy.

Mom: (leaves the table to find something to drink that will take away the sudden headache this conversation has caused)

LOL! These are the kind of conversations I love ... until I have to live them myself, in some way, shape or form.

too funny. I love it that Emily is dreaming big; it's what girls do! Sami just hasn't gotten there yet. Hey, don't forget to email me your address so I can send out your prize from last week...

Oh that is so funny! Did you ever finish reading all the Twilight books? I have now finished ALL 4!! Don't forget the movie comes out Nov 21st!

Omg that was so funny!! What's the best is that I know them and can so vividly picture that conversation going on at your table. I love those kiddos!!

Today my next door neighbor made a bouquet for Maia to play with and when Neil got home she said "daddy, I'm married!". HA!!!!
