Me: "Who has the best seat in the house, me or daddy?"

Adam: "Well, Daddy's is nice, but yours is best. Your's is squishier."

Presents Day


So Ellie comes in tonight
and asks,
"For Presents Day, will you give me an Ipod?"

"What is Presents Day?"

"You know, it's the day when everybody gives each other presents."

"Everybody who?

"You know, just everybody. All the people."

(How have I missed this one?)

"Um, who told you there was a Presents Day?"

"At school they been talkin' 'bout it all the time!"

(Ah-ha.)

"Do you mean, President's Day?"

(Mommy, laughing so hard I might piddle.)

"Oh."

(Ellie, feeling very disappointed in our founding fathers for their lack of foresight and imagination.)

(And no, I won't get you an Ipod. You're seven. Thanks for asking.)

Why didn't I think of this. I'm pretty sure I could have convinced my husband that Presents day exsisted.

You could get your girl the shuffle. Cheap and doesn't have online capabilities. My BIL got one for my DD and she loves it and I control what goes on it.
