My daughter suffers from shiny thing syndrome.


Serious questions from one of the twins in the matter of minutes….

E- “So, does dad make like $2 (yes, two) an hour at work?”
Me-“What?”
E-“Or since minimum wage is like $5 an hour, he makes that right?”
Me-“Yeah, let’s go with that.”
….quickly followed by…..
E- “Why can’t dogs talk?”
Me-“You mean like words?”
E-“Yeah, why can’t they?”
Me-“Seriously?”
E-“Is it cause their mouths are not shaped right? Or their tongue is to long….?”
Me-…speechless….blank stare…..
E-“I think I’m really tired….”
Me-“That’s the first thing you said recently that makes sense.”
……as she walks away…..
E- “Oh, by the way…..Hey mom, I think you need to buy some more dog food. It’s getting kinda low.”
Me- “Oh, how much is left?”
E-“Uhhhhhh, none.”
Me- “Gee, thanks…..” “Is that why you started talking to me?”
E- “Yeah, I got side-tracked.”
Me- “Ya don’t say? Sorta took the long way to get there, didncha?!”

The hamster wheel never stops spinning in that girl’s head.
