My 11 has lost.her.mind

Recommended Posts

Heard in the last 5 minutes:


Dd11: I like hiding under the boys' beds.

Dad: while you're under there, wipe things down.

Dd11: no! (with disgust) I'm not cleaning under there. I like to hide there when they go downstairs for a drink, so I can play "monster under the bed" when they turn the lights out.


(Mother commentary: note that the BOYS are not playing this game)


Dd11: I like to hide on the shelf in their closet, too.

Me: do we need to have a disussion about shelves not being designed for human body weight, and the physics of a body falling to the floor inside a closet?

Dd11: No, I'm doing chemistry this year. THIS year, I get to blow stuff up and write my name on my door in blood.

(so she can spray it with luminal)


We have the strangest conversations with this child.

My brother used to hide between my bed and the wall and just as I was falling asleep, this arm would come up and grab me! Of course that was only until I started searching all hiding places before bed.


This same brother and I would threaten to unplug each other's electric blankets in the winter. Since we had no heat in the house at night, this was a real threat.


I have a great relationship with my brother. :D
