My own people?

Just before Meg started school we were having a conversation about her going to school all day long... it went something like this:
Me- Meggie are you so excited to be in 1st grade and go to school all day?
Meg: Yeah, Mom I even get to eat lunch there.
Me: I know! I am kindof sad that you are going to be gone all day... I liked it when we ate lunch together... sometimes we ate at home and sometimes we went to lunch. Wasn't that fun? What am I going to do without you?
Meg: Mom... ( looking totally disgusted) You are going to have to get your own people.
I must be pathetic if my daughter is telling me to get my own people and leave her alone. That just cracked me up... but the best part was the sequel to the conversation- It went something like this:
Meg: Mom, I am so tired! I just hate to get up in the morning!
Me: I know it is so hard. I am proud of you for getting up so early and getting ready so well.
Meg: Mom, remember when I was a kid and we hung out all morning long before kindergarten?
Me: Yeah that was fun, wasn't it. But, remember you told me I needed to get my own people?
Meg: Yeah, I sure wish I was one of your morning people... just hangin' out, watching cartoons, and drinkin' Diet Pepsi. Mom, you've got the life!
Kids say the craziest things... Now if you'll excuse me- I have got to take my diet Pepsi and go... Sponge Bob Square Pants is on and I can't miss it!

Hi Amy,

You do not know me, but I was in tne same ward as your husband's family in St. George.

I came upon your blog through someone in St. George. You have the cutest decor, and are so talented! And quite the sense of humor.

I have 5 daughters, and one your age that went to Pine View.

I hope you do not mind I have looked at all your cute ideas and your cute sense of humor. It made my day!

Sincerely, Shawna
