School troubles.

Emily:  "Mommy, I have to tell you of my troubles today at school."

Mommy:  "Troubles?"

Emily:  "Yes.  I had two troubles today.  The next one is just terrible"  (I think she meant to say 'the second one' instead of 'the next one.')  

Mommy:  "Okay, Emmy.  Why don't you come upstairs with me while I change."

Emily:  "Well, first my glue fell out of my glue stick."

Mommy:  "Oh.  Okay."

Emily:  "And then at snack time, the straw was missing from my juice box so my teacher haded to give me water.  At least I had something to drink."  (She drinks water all the time!)

Mommy:  "Well, those really aren't too terrible, sweetie.  There are other things that are much worse.  Like what if you had thrown up at school.  Or fallen down and knocked a tooth out."

Emily:  "Yeah.  Or if a person wearing a monster costume had eaten me."

I just laughed out loud! She's so funny, and she'll love looking at this in ten or so years :)

I totally laughed too. It's hard to keep a straight face when they say stuff like that.

Melissa said...

Hahah... Wouldn't be nice if these were still our biggest worries of the day, a missing straw and falling glue. :-)

Stef said...

bahahaha...Hey, its right bothersome when that pesky glue bit falls out of it's stick. And, observing as a Sociology Major, if those are her big troubles then I'd say you and Rich are doing a heck of a job with them ;)

You have just made my day!!! You have such sweet little girls.

Such a cute conversation! Totally made my morning and gives perspective when we think we have terrible days :)

Cindy said...

Hysterical. She's a thinker, that one :)

Courtney said...

hahaha! I had a terrible start to the morning and reading this made it so much better. It's so nice to read how much you appreciate your blessings!

Teej said...

bwahahaha.

She's right. Being eaten by a PERSON wearing a costume is so much more disturbing than being eaten by just a monster. Funny girl.

Haha! It's all about perspective.

Next time I'm having a bad day I'm going to remember to be thankful that at least a person wearing a monster costume didn't eat me! :)

Chantel said...

You have to admit, that monster thing would be pretty terrible! :)

Dad to Triplets said...

You think us putting on the scary skeleton mask in the house and running after Emily and her sisters has anything to do with Emily saying that!? Ha!

Wendy said...

bwhaha!! Yes, Love. That would have been terrible.
