This is a conversation that Lexi and I had today after school:
Lexi: Mom, you have to promise not to tell anyone.
Me: Okay, I won't tell a single soul (crossing my fingers behind my back as I sense an excellent bloggable moment coming on - besides, I really do think she just meant don't tell Vicki, 'cause it's fun to keep secrets from your sister, especially when she's sitting in the same room)
Lexi: (whispering) I have a boyfriend (giggle)
Me: Really? (also whispering, of course) What's his name?
Lexi: Forrest. (more giggles - he must really be something)
Me: Hmmmm...what do you do with your boyfriend?
Lexi: (backing away slowly and no longer whispering) Weeeeeeellllll...I don't reeeallllly remember...ummmm...I have to go now...
I will get to the bottom of this.
Also, on a significantly less terrifying note, here's a funny thing Ellie said yesterday right after she coughed and/or sneezed with a mouthful of milk: "Uh, oh, Mommy. I bless-you'd and made a milk mess."
