Mommy:  Uh huh and you are dancing like this in your new school?

Eli:  Oh yeah baby.  Boom.

Me:  Hummmm…Who is the best Mommy in the whole wide world?

Eli:  Jake, Ben and Joe's Mommy.

Me:  Can I at least make it in the top five?

Eli:  Fourth is that woman who owned my old daycare.

Me:  Mrs. Tatum?  Not sure I want to know who number five is now.

Navigating the Waters

Me:  How was school today?

Eli:  I got lots of friends now and the girls really like me.  One of them doesn't like me though.

Me:  What did you do?

Eli:  I was trying to talk to her and I said "But" but she thought I called her a "Butt".  She said she wasn't talking to me anymore and then I said "But" and she thought I called her a "Butt" again.  

Me:  Welcome to the world of girls.
