The Girl Just Cracks Me Up
Who has the last word in your house? I can tell you, in this house it is not me, it is never me.. I know I raised them to have respect, I know I taught them that as children they needed to be aware of others around them and understand that they too had a point of view. It just didn't seem to sink in.
At least for one, I swear my oldest daughter must have the last word. ALWAYS, it doesn't even matter if she is part of the conversation. I think for the sake of the blog i am going to name her word girl, because she always has to have the last word. (and i am so stealing the name thing from liz at a mom on a spin am gonna have witty and clever names for the others as well)
Anyway today word girl and I were talking and I asked her if she really thought she would always have the last word.. it went something like this..
me: hon, do you really always have to have the last word?
word girl: well yeah.. I mean seriously
me: hon, you know you are not always right
word girl: so, I still have to say it's ok
me: well what about when I say that is it, the conversation is over?
word girl: well, still
me: what about when I am not even talking to you?
word girl: I have pertinent thing to add.. or I wouldn't add them
me: laughing now.. pertinent? sheesh
word girl: yep
me: ok, well try and stop. I know I raised you better
word girl: yeah sure.. and I guess the raising didn't take on me
me: seriously, stop
word girl: yeah yeah ok
word girl: ok
at this point I shut up..
