I Understand It, It’s Just I’m Confused.

Are you confused too?  DD gave me this quotable quote on the way home from work.  I’m loving it.  It’s regarding her pre-algebra homework.  (I remember feeling that way about math sometimes.)  You have to feel for the poor soul because earlier this week she was without anklet socks, which she considered a fashion neccesity, and she was without mascara.  Those things alone are enough to throw my poor teenage, blonde, hormonally challenged daughter into a funk for the whole week.  Then came the left jab – out of nowhere I tell you.   It was beautiful executed though.  I think it would have done Lenox Lewis, Sugar Ray Leonard  and Muhamed Ali proud. It was clean hit and took her down for the count.   DS #1 was in the seat behind her and said, ” If you’re confused, that’s the opposite of understand.  You can’t be both Sissy.”  Oh No He Didn’t!  The 7 yo just totally dissed the 13 yo.  Thank goodness they don’t sit next to each other.  Even though I was dying inside, I had to tell DS #1 to not push the subject.  She becomes very touchy where DS #1 is concerned.  She truly believes he did nothing short of ruin her life.  She was almost 6 when he was born and considered herself an only child.  Then HE came and upset the apple cart.  To be fair, I probably wouldn’t have been very happy with him either.   I’m glad he came.  He provides me with much entertainment.   Have a great one!

Blessings & Hugs, Elizabeth
