What Would I Tweet If I Didn't Have Offspring?

Overheard:

Betsy: "Ramona, remember that video we made once? You were wearing that frilly white dress and getting married to Pooh Bear? But you kept running away."

Ramona: "I was only three!"

Betsy: "Obviously, though, you didn't want to marry Pooh Bear."

Ramona: "What did Pooh Bear have to offer me?"

Anne-with-an-e and I were reminiscing about her days of orthodontia. The poor girl endured four years of braces and various, accompanying tortures. 

"There should've been a rewards program -- I deserved some kind of Orthodontic Rewards Card," she said. 

~~~~~

"Hey, Mom, aren't you going to tweet something about me?" asked Betsy. 

"Say something witty and I will," I replied. 

"'It is better to be without wits than to apply them as you do!'" she quoted at me. 

(Quoting Jane Austen and delivering a well-placed shot fits the bill. Well done, you!)

Well, it's said, "Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks." Some abundance of merriment in that house!

I'm missing a lot at work. I'm quitting my job and staying home.

Aw, Atticus. We'd love that. Except for the lack of steady income. That could get problematic.

Sarah, Sarah, and Tanita, you are all so sweet! I have to confess that my daughters are three of my favorite people in the world. :)
