Like I said, I'm missing the comfort of my girlfriends with all the craziness of December, and although I'm thrilled about a scheduled on the calendar set-in-stone breakfast date at 9:25 a.m. sharp tomorrow with two fabulous friends rain or shine, I'm also reminded of the stimulating conversations just waiting to happen with the other main female in the house, my very Leo daughter. Ya, not quite like the soul rejuvenating estrogen filled and honest convos with the ladies, but I also appreciate the five year old girl mind in all it's splendor. Oh, and ever since Quinn announced he has a loose tooth, she has one again, too. Of course, sooo typical of my girl...can't be out done...must always be the leader or else! After a horrible commute in the omg! monsoon rain and a crazy busy frustrating day at work with no lunch break, here is what greeted me at home:
Me: "How was school today?"
Talia: "I quit the club."
Me: "You quite the Hey Girls Club?"
Talia: "I was sooo not happy with Zoe being the leader and telling me what to do all the time! I hate that! It's sooooo annoyyyying!"
Me: "What did you say when you quit?"
Talia: "I said 'I quit'".
Me: "Well, maybe next time or even tomorrow you can try to work out a better way, like having a democracy or multiple leaders? Compromise is really good. It's a shame to just quit like that."
Talia: "No, it wasn't working for me. I don't like being told what to do."
Me: "Yes, I know that. And, I'm glad you spoke your mind. That's really good."
Talia: "Oh, remember how our whole school voted for Obama except for me and Zoe 'cause we voted for the other guy and Obama won because of our school?"
Me: "Uh huh."
Talia: "Yep, our school is soooo awesome."
Will I throw in a bunch of curse words and talk of dildos tomorrow over coffee tomorrow? You betcha, with extra whipped cream and a cherry on top. I'm so like totally overdue.
