Oh, Really?

Samantha (singing): “Mary had a little man, little man, little man...”

Elizabeth (correcting): “No! It’s not ‘man’, it’s ‘lamb’.”

Samantha (defending): “Mary had to poo-poo!”

“I was a grown up all day today. I want you to be a grown up, too.”
Elizabeth said she had a secret for me and this is what she whispered in my ear. I don’t know why.

“Why is she screaming?”
Elizabeth asked this while listening to Bjork.

Me: “No, you can’t watch cartoons and eat Fruit Loops on the couch. It’s a school day.”

Elizabeth: “Shhh! ...Samantha is sleeping.”


Elizabeth: “Samantha, you’re silly.”

Samantha: “I’m not Silly. I’m Samantha!”

“On some people’s gates, there are words that say, ‘Don’t Come In’ ...unless you’re wearing the same shirt. Then it’s OK.”
Ms. Elizabeth

Elizabeth hands the Costco Exit-Checker our receipt so that she can hastily confirm that we haven’t stolen anything. For cute little kids, Exit-Checkers usually draw smiley faces or flowers. Elizabeth bucks the trend.

Elizabeth: “Could you draw a lamp?”

Exit-Checker: “Uh...a lamp?”

Elizabeth: “Yes, could you draw me a lamp?”

Exit-Checker: “Well, I don’t know how to draw a lamp. How about a nice flower instead?”

Elizabeth: “I want a lamp.”

Exit-Checker: “Well, I can’t draw that. Here’s a nice flower.”
