Tonight we rented Brave. Jesi and Xander each invited a friend and all of us except Graci and Elli watched it together. Cute movie. Could have done without a few of the bare bums.... The kids love having late nights with friends, so this was a treat for Jess and X-man. Christi and I had gone on an early date (Thai food, compliments of a Christmas gift from Matthew and Megan. Thanks!!!). On the way home we stopped at WalGreens to pick up the movie and some treats for the kids. Christi and I are both trying to lose a few of the holiday pounds we put on. Well, let's be real. Christi doesn't need to lose an ounce and I have several years worth of holiday pounds to get rid of. Regardless, at one point I looked down at our shopping cart and had to laugh at the irony:
So, now for the question of the day: Which of the following most solidifies our standing as complete idiots:
1) The oxymoronic contents of our shopping cart
2) Our while-we-were-shopping belief that the treats were "just for the kids."
Cali is a cutie! Quite the little imp. She has a fun sense of humor and it translates into English relatively well, which is uncommon. A short conversation tonight:
Cali: "Me like."
Me: "I like."
Cali: "Wei shenme?" (Why)
Me: "Wo shi 'I' Wo shi 'me'" (The Chinese word 'wo' means either I or me)
Me: "Wo ay nii...I love you"
Cali (who often protests when you try to teach her an English phrase she has already mastered): "I KNOW!!!" Then, with her impish grin: "Me know:)"
