For about ELEVEN years I have driven my GIRLIES to school! Whether it was 5 miles away to eventually 25+ miles away... There is ALWAYS so much time in the car before school and after school! I LOVE IT! I totally look forward to that time together.
Our commute takes about 20 minutes to drop off Madison and about 45 minutes to drop of Kinzi! Phew! I know...Lots of CAR TIME! But..... I look at it as such a FUN opportunity to 'Hold the GIRLS Captive' :) for lots of GREAT conversations!! ♥
As the girls have gotten older the conversations are changing... With Madison it went a little like this today:
Me: "Who are you texting?"
M: "Ooooooooh Ida!" :)
Me: "Madison, that dress is a liiiiiiiiiiittle short."
M: "Oooooooooh... it's FINE Mommy."
Me: "Omiggoooooooodness look at this welcome to school!"
M: "It's the SPIRIT Committee"
Me: "That is soooooooooo cool! You should be a member of the Spirit Committee."
M: "Oh, No Thank you."
Me: HONK HONK HONK Hoooooooonk
M: "Mommy, you are soooooo embarrassing! "
Me: "ha ha ha! :)"
Me: "Have a GREAT day, I LOVE YOU!"
M: "LOVE YOU!"
After we drop Madison off... Kinz climbs to the front seat to sit with me and since we have a little time to kill we head off to STARBUCKS. The line was sooooooooooooooooo long today! I think I was looking at my phone for a sec and hadn't moved 2 feet forward... and the lady behind me started HONKING! ha ha!
Kinz and I's conversation...
Me: "Omigoooodness, that lady obviously NEEDS her morning coffee!"
K: "Yaaaa REALLY!" :)
Kinz and I get our Starbucks coffeeeeee...
K: "Mommy, How do you spell Macchiato?"
Me: "Hmmm. MACCHIATO - M-A-C-H...."
Me: "Um. MACCHIATO - M-A-K..."
Wellllll I finally spelled it RIGHT! Buttttt.... after saying, "MACCHIATO, over and over both of us felt like we were speaking a little Japanese! :) So, I taught her the song...
We were singing it more like this, ♫ ♪ "Domo Arigato Mr. MACCHIATO!" ♪♫
ha ha ha ha!!! :) ...already looking forward to picking them up... hearing about their day, and ENJOYING a 3-day weekend with them!!!
HAVE A HAPPY LABOR DAY WEEKEND!!! :)
