Conversations with Amanda

So my middle daughter totally cracks me up. She always has. Since a very young age she has had the sarcastic humor of an adult. An old carpool once told me that Amanda was the only one who would get her jokes. Well over the weekend she walked out on our front porch and said “Mom, Look I am Snooki”. (I have to tell my husband to quit watching Jersey Shore on Netflix). To top it all off, as I was getting ready for bed, my youngest daughter said, “You know how she got her hair to do that?” “How?” I asked. “With a toilet paper roll,” was her reply. Holy Cow. Ingenuity at it’s finest!!!

Here is just a sampling of some of my “Conversations with Amanda” –

I pick Amanda up from gymnastics. Her bangs are in a ponytail sticking straight off her head. She kind of looks like a unicorn. We go to Costco. I ask her “Are you going in like that?” She said “Yes.” “Really I ask?” She says, “Yeah, why?”  I say, “What if I am embarrassed?” She says “Mom, you need to work on your image anyway.”

Driving home from our GS Boondocks sleepover Amanda asked me if she looked presentable enough to go babysitting. I jokingly told her “you might stink.”. She said, “I like showers, I just want to set you straight with that. Now Alyssa (her younger sister who was sitting right next to her), on the other hand, has issues with hygiene. Hey Alyssa, hygiene is your friend.” I told her she cracked me up and I can’t wait to see what kind of conversations we have in the future. She looked at me and said “That is a good thing, right?””Mom, is my blood type A positive?” “Yes,” I say. “See even in the womb I was getting an A plus.”

    Not a book to read from start to finish although a real geek could. Great examples that work. If you want to know how to do something, this book will tell you and give you an example. I sat down with it and got answers to problems that hours of searches on MSDN and VB.NET sites didn’t give me. I wish that I had had this book 6 months ago!!!
