Quote of the Day:

We got to have lunch with my former college roommate and her family at Chic-Fil-A today and it was awesome! It was so great to get to see my friend and her husband and catch up with her and meet her kids, who are wonderful.

After we got home, my 7yo told me about some "playground drama" that was going on while we were there that I didn't know about.

While the adults were talking, the kids were playing on the CFA playground.

At one point my 7yo was waiting her turn to go down the slide - she was waiting for her little 1yo sister to finish her turn and get out of the way.

Another little girl climbed up behind my 7yo and kicked her in the back and said "GO!".

My daughter said "No, my baby sister is down there and I am waiting for her to get off the slide so I don't hurt her!"

The other little girl said "I don't care! Go!" and kicked my 7yo in the FACE.

My 7yo held her ground and physically prevented the other girl from going down the slide on top of her 1yo sister.

I was very proud of my 7yo - LOVE that courage! I gave her the high five and big hug for being brave and protecting her little sister.

But I just about busted a gut laughing a couple of minutes later when I heard her in the next room talking to her brother.

My 7yo said, with disgust, "Yeah, she is one of those kids who has parents who always say yes to her about everything!"
