Is it any wonder my family thinks I am a little batty?
Conversation with a 7 year old today...
Kyle: What's your name?
Kyle: Pause... What is your real name?
Kyle: Pause longer this time...What do people call you?
me: Daniela. Umm. My sisters call me "D"

I tell Jon about this conversation and he chuckles.
Jon: Hah, Misty! Get it - Miss D - Misty.
I get it.
I tell Allie about this conversation 2 hours later
Allie: Hah, Misty! Get it - Miss D - Misty
Oh, I get it, all right.
Earlier in the day my husband sees that I am looking online for some power tools.
Jon: What are you looking for?
me: A table saw
Jon: That's what I was afraid of. You build one little drawer and you suddenly need a table saw.
My daughter Ashley brought her boyfriends family lunch today. They are very fussy eaters and eat only limited food.
me: How did the lunch go?
Ashley: Good. The healthiest thing they ate were the pigs in the blanket.
So you see, things are always interesting at our house.
