Reilly: The boys in my class are SOOOOOO gross!! During music we were singing this song, 'What a lovely song' and the boys kept singing 'What a lovely THONG' and 'What a lovely BRA.' DISGUSTING!!!! LOL
I had to almost drag Reilly out of Claire's Boutique at the mall last Saturday afternoon....She loves to look at all of the cheap, tacky jewelry (mostly adorned with monkeys) that she'll never be able to wear. I think I've written about her nickel (and other metal) allergy.
As we were leaving, she started tearing up and going through the It's not fair ritual. (During these meltdowns, I've learned to nod my head sympathetically, agree with her, tell her, "Yes, that stinks", blah, blah, blah....) Debbie and I suggested that maybe she could put 24 carat gold earrings on her Christmas list...to which she responded, "I don't like gold...I like silver!" Anyway, we got her settled down, with promises of platinum or white gold earrings to come (years from now, of course!)
Tonight, as she's lying in bed, completely out of the blue she says, "Mom, I don't want to get my ears pierced...It looks like it hurts." WTH (heck)???? I said, "Reilly, you know what it feels like to have your ears pierced, you've had it done TWICE." Sheepishly she replied, "Oh yeah, I forgot." UGHHHHHHHHH!
