Hope has an MP3 player. Instead of downloading a book from the computer, she, in all of her 13 year old brilliance, has decided to push record on the player while she is playing a book on tape on her stereo. This requires all of us to be completely silent for the duration of the recording.
Now I ask you? Is that an opportunity or what?
Today in the middle of her recording I opened her bedroom door and yelled "HOPE IS POOPY!" and ran away.
In return I was able to laugh at her while she yelled things like:
"MOTHER! I AM RECORDING! NOW I HAVE "HOPE IS POOPY" ON MY MP3 PLAYER!"
"WHY CAN'T ANYONE JUST LEAVE ME ALONE IN THIS HOUSE!"
I love being a mom.
