I think these shrunk too much
Our family masters in teasing, we tease so often that it is hard to catch anybody out. Fortunately I have a new victim. Jess' friend Michaela is staying with us.
I pulled Mila's (six year old niece) tights out of the washing machine. I held them up in front of Michaela and said:
"Oh my look how my tights shrunk in the wash."
Michaela's eyes went very big:
"Shoo that is terrible."
"My Mom is teasing those are Mila's"
Last night at the dinner table the teens were telling different stories and the language was not too savoury.
I put my knife and fork down and with what I hoped was a Bree from Desperate Housewives look and voice, I said:
"Please no swearing at my dinner table."
Michaela's eyes went very big again and she started to mumble apologies but not for long because Jess and Danielle and I started laughing.
Michaela to Jess:
"Your Mom keeps catching me out."
"Yip she is abusing you because she can't catch us any more."
Jess messaged me today:
"Ma, Danielle says remember to draw the money you owe her please."
I messaged back:
"Tell Danielle I will but I can't put any colour on my drawings I only have a pencil."
Jess then messaged:
"You are so lame."
To which I quite rightly replied.
"I am not I walk fine."
Then I got this surprising message.
