The (Little) Wicked Witch of the Smith Home
In real life, however, I tend to be quiet and conservative and not very talkative (until I've had a few drinks). I also tend not to worry much about my appearance in regards to wearing makeup or wearing the clothes that are the latest style.
My husband is my polar opposite. He likes to talk to new people and manages to make new friends where ever he goes. He is well suited for sales. He is also usually the one who has to talk me into letting go of my favorite T-shirt from the late 1970's.
My sweet blue eyed, blond haired daughter takes after him in that aspect and then takes it much further than that. Here is a snippet of our conversation from my bathroom vanity this weekend while getting ready to go somewhere.
Leaky: Mom, why do you have so many wrinkles and don't do anything about it. I don't have any wrinkles.
Me: Of course you don't have wrinkles...you are only 7 (mental note...start using wrinkle cream).
Leaky: Why don't you do Weight Watchers?
Me: Um, because I don't want to.
Leaky: But, you're on a diet right??? Weight Watchers can help you.
Me: Ok...I think I will keep working on it my way.
Leaky: Why does your belly hang out over your pants.
Me: Because I'm bloated and have PMS and if you ask me one more question, I might just have to take your pretty no wrinkles head off. (I didn't really say that. What I did say) It's not nice to point out things like that.
Leaky: It's okay! We're not in public!
Me: You're right. Don't ever say those things in public, now go tell your brother to brush his teeth (so I can have myself a nice little cry all by myself.)
I guess that it was appropriate that she was a witch for Halloween last year.
