There's no doubt that Ryan is a smart one. That said, there are still some things that I know more about than her, like how many calories are in the bottle of Shiraz I'm about to consume, how many weeks are safe to go without getting your period, and the Internet (though this last one will surely change by the time she gets to 1st grade).
The following conversation occured just minutes ago as I was looking at this blog:
Ry: "Mom, is that a picture of me?" (pointing to pic of darling little girl)
Me: "No, baby. That's another little girl."
Ry: " Mom! WHY! ARE! YOU! PUTTING! PICTURES!OF! OTHER! LITTLE! GIRLS! ON! YOUR! COMPUTER!?!"
Yes, I may be smarter than her now, but clearly she is light years ahead of me in the drastically jealous/possessive department. I didn't hit that stage until I was at least 17.
P.S. Jilly, Lisa and Suz -- congrats! You 3 are my new best friends! The rest of you??? BITE ME. Happy De-lurking Week!!
