Due to the incredible demands on Christi's time right now, we've hired a recent high-school graduate to come help Christi for a few hours on weekday mornings. She is coming to help tomorrow, and since the kids are out of school, they will meet her for the first time. Tonight, Christi told Taylor, Parker and Graci that she would be coming. After they heard about it, the following conversation ensued:
Parker: How old is she?
Christi: She's about 18.
Taylor: She's WAY to old for you, Parker!
Graci: It's great to have a maid.
Me: Let's not call her a maid.
Taylor: What should we call her?
Parker: (Without missing a beat and with a big, goofy grin on his face) Can I call her my date?
That kid is funny, and was mostly joking, but you can bet I'll be keeping my eye on him over the next several years!!!
