Let them eat cake…and “professional” coloring…

Ok...so I said I wouldn't reveal my dh age...but the photo I took of his cake last night is so purdy!!!!

And frankly...being as sick as I am...I'm surprised we even did a cake at all last night!

And of course...even tho I'm sick...I have to post another funny exchange with Laney...

She was coloring today after I picked her up from school.  And we've often talked about making things "perfect" and coloring and creating things and making them our "own" creations so they don't "have" to look like the "real" thing or what the books look like or whatever.  So she's coloring away talking about how she doesn't have to make it look real and this is what she says...

"Well I don't have to make it look professional ya know!"

And I thought that is what she said and I wasn't quite sure cause 'professional' is such a big word.  And I asked her to repeat it and I was laughing my head off.  Of course this made her get all embarrassed and so she didn't want to.  I pleaded and pleaded with her.  And so she said it again.

"I don't have to color it all professional."

I bursted out in hysterics...and then couldn't stop coughing cause I'm so darn sick...

And Laney says to me, "Mom, are you making fun of me?"  Natural reaction of course...

"Of course not Laney.  You are just so hilarious.  The things that you say!!!"

"Are you calling me a liar?"

"What??????"

"Are you calling me a liar?" she says in a funny voice.

"No.  Where on earth did you hear that???"

"On tv.  I'm always hearing that on tv...on all the shows I watch."

Heaven help us!!!! ;D
