1. Christmas Eve:
9-year-old A: "Can (19-year-old sister) B put eye make up on me before we go to Grandma's?"
Me: (knowing that sometimes B has a little too much fun with this) "Can you just not look like a drag queen please?"
2. Christmas Morning:
13-year-old E, distributing gifts: "This one says To the love of my life in Daddy's handwriting . . . I guess it's for you"
|This shirt was a gift made for me by the love of my life.|
3. Christmas Day:
Me: "Did you see this picture A drew? She's been watching this videos on how to draw"
Our neighbor: "Oh that's so cute! Who's that, Zoloft?"
4. Christmas Evening:
11-year-old Z: "I didn't really get any toys this year."
Me: "Well, you are getting older . . . you didn't even ask for any toys!"
Him: "Wait, what did I even ask for anyway?"
(glad I didn't adhere exactly to the ideas he kept shooting at me)
5. Morning after Christmas:
9-year-old A: "I'm bored."
