Last few moments of my phone conversation with my love tonight:

JC: You better tell me you love me Woman!

Me: Love you (sarcastically)!

JC: You better say it like you mean it.

Me: I love you (kind of sarcastically).

JC: I love you Woman!

Me: Love you too Butthead!

*Cracking up as we both hung up!

**So the epitome of our relationship!

I’m Not Bossy!  I’m the BOSS!!! 
Had a conversation with someone yesterday and it reminded me of this photo at T’s going away party.  The conversation yesterday went something like this (and it was with a person who I am actually friends with, so it wasn’t meant maliciously). 
Friend:  C, how are things at work?
Me:  Going well.  Getting into to a groove and learning a lot.  But I have a wonderful team and really like my new staff!!!
Friend:  I bet.  So how do you like using all your “bossy-ness”?
Me:  My “bossy-ness”?  Really, is that what you think of me???
Friend:  Yeah. Girl, c’mon, you know you got that “bossy” thing down!!!  (pauses)…Right?
Me:  (Laughing)  Oh, sweetie!  You are mistaken!  I’m not bossy!  I’m THE BOSS!  And I do life LIKE A BOSS!
*Hysterics and trash talking ensued

Ballareen-ing

Scenario:  We read for about 30 minutes every night.  We have been reading the Ramona series and as we wrap it up, we have gotten to the part where Mrs. Quimby is pregnant and Beazus and Ramona are thinking of names for the baby.  Once Beazus found out what her name means, there is a illustration of her dancing in their living room.

K:  Mama, what is she doing?

Me:  I think she’s dancing.

K:  Actually, I think she’s Ballareen-ing.

Me:  Ballareen-ing? 

K:  Yeah, you know, as in being a beautiful ballerina!

Me:  You just created that word, didn’t you?

K:  Of course I did—that’s how smart I am now that I’m in kindergarten…You can read now.

*My son, the genius.

Snuggle for 2 more minutes Mama?

Scenario:  I’m in the shower and I hear my little man come into the bathroom.  He’s sitting on the tub and I peek my head out of the shower and ask him if he’s ok.

K:  No!  I don’t feel good.  I think I need to snuggle for just 2 more minutes.

Me:  Ok.  Well, I’m about to get out.  Let me put my pajama’s back on and I will snuggle with you.

K: Ok.  Good.  Hurry Mama!

Me:  (quickly getting back into my dirty pajamas and heading back to my bed)  Hi there Mr.  Come here you!

K:  I just need 2 minutes to snuggle with you Mama!  I know that will make me feel better!

Me:  Ok!  Then come on over here and gimme your hugs and kisses!

K: (After five minutes of just laying on my belly)  I love you Mama!

Me:  I love you too Konjo!

K:  Oooooh! I have to poop!
