Things I'm not sure I wanted/expected to hear....
1. Corina, your car battery is dead. (put in context- first time for everything, the news you had to have, I am a big girl now, I can handle this but do I want to?)
2. Canonball !!!!!! (heard via baby monitor, asked 10 year old to put twins in bath)
3. Kiss my butt! (during same bath- yes, the giggling 3 year olds)
4. I forgot to hand my homework in (the homework we had 2 snow days to complete and stayed up late to finish)
5. Oh, what time will I be home, well actually I am going out to dinner with the people that are visiting from blah blah (breadwinner at 6.30pm)
6. Some guy at the office died (33 years old, kids, skiing NO F'ING HELMET)
Funny things to hear
A complicated discussion place taking under the dining table about Prince Charming ....... "true loves kiss?, Yes KISS her!, She's NOT waking UP??? Get some one else! Someone else has to help. The Penguin?" Yes, get the Penguin! "etc
