Lexi opens our closed door and comes barging into our room about a subtly as a Mack truck. "Lexi," I remind her, "you can't just come into our room. You have to knock first."
Lexi: "So I should try again?"
Me: "Yes. Knock, and I'll say 'No. You can't come in.'"
So sweet Lexi knocks.
Me: "No. You can't come in."
Lex: "But I want to tell you something."
Me: "Not right now. Mommy and I are talking."
Christi then gives me a pouty look with big eyes and an extended lower lip indicating that she thinks Lexi is about as cute as can be and I'm a big ogre.
Me: "OK, Lex. What do you want?"
Lexi: "Can you slip me for 20 bucks? Get a CD?" Christi and I start cracking up. Lexi: "That's what Parker told me."
Love our kids!!!
