How we roll at Casa De Goodwife......

Ok so tonight is cheeseburger and fry night here at Chateau du Goodwife.........I had the oil heating up for the fries (I do this outside on the side burner of my grill) the grill preheating for the burgers, some eggs on to boil for deviled eggs (cause The Man requested them) and was getting ready to fry some zucchini (cause The Youngun requested that!). Asked The Youngun if we could have zucchini tomorrow night cause it just wasn't gonna happen......she said yes....(bless her pea-pickin little heart). So, went out to put the burgers on the grill.....checked the oil temp for the fries, came back in to tend to the eggs......long story longer.......I burnt the burgers.......and I mean charcoal briquette burned.......inedible burned.....hockey puck burned. I came in with said burnt burgers and The Man says......."What'd ya do burn the burgers?" I said nothing.........then The Man says........"Are the fries burnt too?" I (brandishing a butter knife at the time) said "That will get your head cut right off mister!" To which The Youngun replied....."What are ya gonna do, cut it off with a butter knife?" She's such the pithy one. Now you know what really goes on around here........I'm sorry I had to share it........

Nother story about The Youngun and this one is a hoot. This took place about 2 or 3 years ago when said Child was about 8. We had gone to wally world with my folks and The Man had bought one of those ginormous cans of cashews. When we got back here Granny Bob (aka, my mom) was making sure that everything of ours was out of their vehicle. She says to The Youngun...."Where are your dad's nuts?"..........(I'm sure you know where this is going)..........To which The Youngun responded..........."Well I hope they are attached to his body!".........
My mom came flying in the house saying "DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR DAUGHTER JUST SAID!" trying to be horrified and not laugh. I wasn't a bit surprised.....my kid is sweet, savvy, and very very funny. I simply can't wait for the teen years!

This is the same child who at 3 asked Pop Pop (aka my dad) how you "make sex". This as you can imagine sent my father into orbit. He says to me...."I don't know what you've got going on down there but your daughter just asked me how you make sex!!!" To which I replied...."Oh, we're making pornos and she's running the camera." (The Youngun didn't come by her pithy-ness on her own) I mean seriously people, sex is everywhere.........you can't get away from it. I mentioned it to The Youngun and asked her what she wanted to know. She told me that she just wanted to know if Pop Pop and Granny ever "made sex" so I ever so casually explained that sex is how babies get made and since they had me and her dear Auntie that they had indeed "made sex". I then asked her if she wanted to know anything else and she came back with "How come trees have green leaves?" or something equally difficult to answer. I explained to her that she was free to ask me or Daddy anything at all, but perhaps she should refrain from asking others questions such as these as they tend to cause cardiac episodes. Since then we've had lots of really great conversations about LOTS of stuff and I'm so thankful to God that she is comfortable coming to me with this stuff. As awkward as it sometimes is, I wouldn't have it any other way! As I said, she's a savvy kid and I'm hopeful that she will always come to me with her questions even when they are hard ones!
Till next time..............GOD BLESS FROM GOODWIFE FARM!
