#MidnightMadness – 10/30/2017

So there I was, reading aloud the features that come with the new iPhone X

“The super retina display dazzles the eyes and employs techniques to precisely follow the curves of the design all the way to the elegantly rounded corners.  The first OLED screen that rises to the standards.  Familiar gestures make navigation natural and intuitive. Instead of pressing a button, a single swipe takes you home from anywhere.  A larger and faster 12MP sensor. A new color filter with Deeper pixels, etc…”

And then my sweet and very innocent 16 yr. old daughter, who obviously picked up on the bolded words above, says to me…

“Mom, I feel like I’m listening to Fifty Shades of Phones.”  😉

For health class today, we were discussing attitudes between children and their parents.  We had to read a cartoon about a girl and her mother having a fight and then learned how they resolved their conflict.

I said to my girls… “I think it’s really great that I hardly ever have any conflict with you girls.  You always seem to do what you’re told and I never seem to have a problem with either one of you.”

Then I decided to ask them why they always behave so well.

Brianna said, “Because mom… we know better than to get you upset with us.”

I said, “Why, do I rule with an iron fist?”

Brianna said, “Yes mom, you really do, but at least you rule us with a cute, adorable, iron fist.

Such a sweet talker she is!  Lol…  😉

I’m craving a hot drink right now and once and awhile I crave a stiff drink, and when a woman says something like this, you have to kind of wonder what she means by that.  😉

Sorry… it’s midnight.  I get silly this time of night.  Lol…

light-2581929_960_720

At the dinner table, the question of the day was…

If you happened along a creepy tunnel, and you saw a light at the end of it, would you venture in further to investigate where the light was coming from?

Both of my girls said, that they would investigate the light, and I said I’d turn around and go back the way in which I came.  Brianna thought that was unwise, and said the place I came from was probably worse.  I said, “Well, I came from that place and survived, so it must not have been that bad.”  And yet she insisted that going towards the light in the creepy tunnel was still the better option.  Then at the last minute she added this… “Well mom, you’re forgetting… we all initially came from a creepy tunnel.”  I couldn’t help but bust out laughing.  The joke was totally lost on little Auti.  Thank goodness for that!

I have no idea how we got on the subject of hair, but as we were all sitting around the dinner table, my sixteen-year-old daughter Brianna ran her hand through her hair and said, “Look, mom, my hair is as soft as butter.”  I gave her a nod of agreement but then nearly spit out my food as my nine-year-old daughter Autumn replied, “Well, that’s just because your hair is so greasy!”  Brianna and I both nearly peed our pants after hearing that one.  We must have all laughed for at least ten minutes.  Oh, the things that girl says!   😉
