Having a teenage daughter has been one of the most fun eras of my life - and I am being serious. I am so blessed to have a daughter that is smart, fun, and has a great attitude... about 99% of the time. I dont know if the "Terrible Teens" just never kicked in with her or if we just arent quite there yet (she turned 14 this Summer) but either way I am loving this time in our lives.
As I have shared before, The Teen has "moments" that are similar to "blonde moments" but well... we are all brunettes. So we dubbed them "Sami Says" moments and I have shared them with you before here and here - just in case you need a few more laughs.
This Summer has been full of Sami Says Moments and I wish now that I had written every single one of them down. This week we had two that I remember... enjoy.
Sami: Can we go eat at that "Casa Oil" place?
Mike: Casa Oil?
Sami: You know - that place we always passed on the way home from school last year? The Mexican place?
Me: Casa OLE?
Sami: Its pronounced "Oh-lay?"
Mike: You took Spanish for an entire year and didn't know it was "Oh-lay?"
Sami: They didnt teach us bull fighting in there....
For The Love Of Candy
Sami: Mom, if you had to learn another language other than Spanish, what would it be.
Me: American Sign Language - I have always wanted to learn.
Sami: I think I want to learn Italian.
Me: Its a sexy language. But when would you use it?
Sami: Like... when I go to Greece.
Me: *blank stare*
Sami: Oh wait - they speak Greek don't they?
Me: *bust out laughing* Yes baby, they speak Greek - another beautiful language.
*a few moments of silence*
Sami: Maybe I should learn to speak Swedish... that way I could go over there and order chocolate and Swedish Fish in their "native tongue..."
I nearly had to pull the car over I was laughing so hard.
