Dinner Discussions

I haven't posted a dinner discussion in a while, just hasn't been anything good I guess, or maybe I just can't remember it long enough to get it in a blog post. But this one is worth posting!

Noah asked me, "Mom, what does _________ mean?" [I use the line because I have NO recollection of what word he asked, I'm telling you my memory is shot!]

I told him what it meant and used it in a sentence.

Noah looked at me and said, "It's like you're my own 'Word Girl'."

I smiled and said, "Maybe I am Word Girl." Noah laughed, Eli snickered.

Then Eli said, "You aren't Word Girl, we'd know!"

I smiled and said, "You would? Word Girl's family doesn't know she's Word Girl." Dramatic pause. "Do they?"

Then I popped another bite in my mouth and just looked at him and smiled while I chewed. It threw him off a little bit. He just looked at me, you could see the wheels turning, and then asked, "Well, you aren't, are you?"

I laughed and said, "No, I really don't have time for all that!"

Simon piped in with, "And you don't have a cape!"

Indeed. I don't have a cape.

If you need one, I can fashion you a Word Girl cape so you can get about the business of making sure the world is literate!
