Have I mentioned before that Gigi is a funny girl? She made me laugh out loud this afternoon. We were on our way to Wallace's to pick out some more flowers... we have spring fever... and Gigi said that she had to ask me a question:

G: Mom I saw a word in the bathroom today at school and I don't know what it means.

M: You can ask me. (thinking uh oh, this can't be good)

G: What does SH*T mean? (she said this as clearly and simply as if she was asking for pancakes for breakfast)

M: It is (laughing) a bad word that means "poop". Did you say this word to anyone else at school?

G: No way, I wanted to ask you first.

M: Well, G, God gave us a lot of prettier words to use so don't use that one. Okay?!?

I LOVE the fact that until today my second grader didn't know the meaning of the word. I also LOVE the fact that she wanted to ask me what it meant before she started blabbing it at school. I would bet my left pinky toe that most of the grown ups at school wouldn't believe her if she did say that word and then tried to claim innocence. I LOVE that kid.

The ride ended like this...

M: Get out of the car P**phead.
