Laughter Lives Tuesday! & Serious Life Magazine!

Laughter LivesThis post is part of "Laughter Lives! Tuesday" on the Riggs Family Blog. Check out their blog to read everyone else's "Laughter Lives!" posts.

Conversations with Rylee:

I was running behind on making dinner so I threw some hot dogs in the microwave and french fries in the oven. It's all done just in time to sit down to family dinner.

Rylee: "I can't eat dis Mama - it's too fat!" She puts her hot dog back down on her plate.

Me: "What do you mean it's too fat?"

Rylee: "You know Mama, IT'S TOO FAT!" (she always raises her voice when I ask for clarification, as if I can't hear her!) "It's FAT like a horse leg, dis is like a horse leg, I'm NOT gonna eat it!"


The girls are having breakfast before school and they are both chatting away when I hear Rylee say:

"I can't stand you Hanna"

I say "Rylee, you don't ever tell someone that you can't stand them! That is not nice!!! It's the same as saying to someone I don't like you. Wouldn't you feel so sad if someone said that to you?"

She nods her head and has tears starting to well up in her eyes. She said "But Mama, I don't know what she saying..."

I look closely at her "were you trying to tell Hanna that you can't understand her?"

She says "Yeah Mama, you don't know dis what I say Mama?"

Me: "No Rylee I'm sorry, I sure didn't understand that's what you were trying to say!"


I was in my bathroom one morning getting ready and Rylee comes running in. She stands in the doorway with her hands clasped under her chin and she is swaying back in forth. In a dreamy voice she tells me:

"I wonder who I es gonna marry Mama, I wanna know who is dis boy that I gonna marry AND KISSSSSSSSSSSSS!" Giggles burst forth from her as she tells me ,"When I get marry en I can KISS my busband MAMA and you hafta say YES!!"

She runs off leaving me with my mouth hanging open and speechless...
