    aquinas, good for your DS to be cleaning up his own mess. My DD tells me it's MY job to clean after HER. I told her that she was mistaken then she told me that she wasn't and I was the one who was confused.

    This is a new one. I work evenings so my DD9 will fill me in on her evening when I get home before she goes to bed. Her dad is with her when I am not so I usually don't worry about her on the computer because he watches what she does. But this story had me worried at the beginning when she started telling it but by the end I just realized it was her long way around to asking for something.

    DD9: Mommy I was on google this afternoon looking things up and I wanted to look up "warrior"

    me: okay and what happened?

    DD9: well it auto filled "Warrior Cats" and being my curious self I wondered what that was and clicked on it. And it brought up a link for a website for it.

    me: and?

    DD9: AND being my curious self I clicked the link and it was a website for a bookseries for kids and it has two places to buy them. Amazon and Walmart.

    me: and?

    DD9: AND they look really interesting.

    me: So what you are saying is you want me to buy some more books?

    DD9: UMM, yeah?

    me: I will look into it.

    It's not like she doesn't have hundreds of books in her room that I bought from a friend last year that she still hasn't read.

    Ehhh, sometimes. I try to teach him to clean up with me, but it's a work in progress.

    She's a firecracker, that daughter of yours. I see a promising future career in law there. wink

    That is an eerily familiar conversation.

    I just had to go through the books to make sure she didn't have them and then I had to make a deal with her that she would actually finish one book before I would buy her another one. She has about five started but I never know if she actually finishes one because she always has about five going at a time. I have a hard enough time keeping up with the five books I am reading at once.

    [s][/s]I am sitting next to DD right now, who is reading one of those books. Then I realized the time and told her to go to sleep!

    DD is a big fan of those books at the moment!

    Books like that I reserve at the library. If it is a series I reserve the first three and then the next three. We would be broke if I bought every book he wanted.

    Hmm...I believe I've seen those books at the library -- I'll have to check one out and see if DD is interested!

    And here is another one.

    Come home tonight from work and this is what I got.

    DD9: Mommy I was looking up stuff on "Straight no Chaser" (the a cappella group) and they are doing a fall tour. And they are coming to (a city near us) soon. Can we go? PLEASE!!!!

    Me: I don't know let me put my purse and coat away and I will look it up.

    My kid could care less about Katy Perry or Taylor Swift. She wants to see an A Cappella group. Not that I am complaining because I'd like to see them again too but WOW.
