my dinner table

As I’ve said, my family eats dinner together every night.  Its one of the things that Doug and I are proud of and it seems to keep us on track as a family.  Last night was particularly special.

Ruby:  (to Riley)  You’re crazy here.  (Points to head.)

Riley:  I think my hair looks good today, thanks.  You’re just jealous cause I’m the smart one….

Ruby:  But I’m the pretty one that everyone likes better and you’re just jealous because I’m so beautiful and talented….

Riley:  (dramatic pause)  You’re retarded!

Me:  laughing my ass off. 

Nope.  This is not the dialogue of 2 year olds.  They are 14 and 17.

Yep.  This is my real life.  I’m not making this shit up.  These are the moments that make you drag your fat ass out of bed every day and do it all again…….We’re so proud….

    Count yourself fortunate (!) that they talk to eat other and haven’t resorted to mere Neandarthal grunting :0)

    I love this story. My two are already good with the backchat at dinner but it is so good to all be sat around a table together, one of the best parts of the day.

    Can’t wait to see what you have been working on photography wise, your photos are always so beautiful.

    Oh, how I LOVE that she misinterpreted “here” to mean “hairdo.” Serious family gold there.
