SPF apparently takes after her mother in that she has my sarcastic sense of humour. OK, first, let me start this first post of 2011 properly by wishing you all a happy new year. May all of your hard work in years past pay off for you, may your love lives be peaceful, and may you and your family be healthy and well this wonderful 2011!!
Now back to the sarcasm I love so much....We were watching the new year's festivities from Times Square tonight when they interviewed New Kids on The Block. (Yes the same ones from early 90's.) My sweet little 9yo SPF says "New Kids on the Block? More like Old Men on the Street!" I thought I was gonna die! That girl is getting funnier and funnier every day! But she is completely right. Who told them and the Backstreet Boys to do a comeback anyway?
Later I asked her what her resolutions are. We had a brief discussion that included a description of what a resolution is. She then went on to tell me her new years resolutions are to not smoke, not drink beer, and not kill her brother. Yeah, that would be coming right from the mouth of my 9yo non smoking, non drinking, sweet daughter. She is a character!!
Kids are funny by nature, they have such a candid look on life, but SPF is cracking jokes! Yes I know all kids crack jokes, but she is saying stuff that is actually funny! Then of course she notices how funny I am finding her and then drives her jokes right into the ground, completely over does it. That's the 9yo sense of humour coming out I guess!
