I laughed all the way home from cheer practice tonight.....all because of the conversation between the two 10 years olds (Grace and her BFF A) in the backseat of a minivan.
At the start of the drive,
Me: So girls, what is the best part of 5th grade so far?
A: I get to have lunch with Grace.
Me: Well, okay. How about....what is something that you don't really like about 5th grade so far?
G: Writing. I like typing better and really don't want to have to write.
A: Learning. Sometimes I just dont like to learn things.
Me: (laughing so hard I could barely drive).
Then, just a few minutes later................
A: Hey Grace. I have a great idea for when we go to college.
G: Okay. What?
A: Well, you can pick the college we go to.
G: Okay. I will pick somewhere far away and fun.
A: Okay, Definitely someplace fun, like clown college.
Me: (more laughing....now the tears are rolling down my face too!)
As we pull into A's neihborhood,
A: Hey Miss Jaime. Guess what?
Me: I cant even guess!
A: I am already studying for my drivers test.
G: You are? I can drive a golf cart...kind of.
A: Grace, no you cant. You fell out of one 2 weeks ago and got a concussion so you cant drive one! (very good point!)
G: Well yea.
A: I only know one thing so far.....you have to turn on your blinker when you want to turn.
Me: Always a good idea (tears are flowing now cause I am laughing so hard).
Just a few minutes later, as A's mom and I are chatting on the sidewalk, the girls start asking where the trashcan................we are literally standing next to 3 trashcans on the curb. Glad they are so aware of their surroundings.
Oh these girls.......always making sure we are laughing.
