Yesterday was our biweekly shopping trip to the local grocery store, UGO (United Grocery Outlet…kinda similar to Save A Lot). I spend a good hour or so in there every Thursday or Friday looking for the deals (and boy did I find some deals!). My husband and 10 year old daughter joined me on this trip.
I always wonder why I keep bringing them with me. They gang up on me in an effort to embarrass me. And 9 times out of 10, it works (yes, I am very easily embarrassed). This trip, my husband decided to follow behind me, playing music on his phone (loudly) and dancing. The man can’t dance! And even if he could, I don’t think the grocery store is the place to do it! Of course, his antics gets my daughter stirred up (she is JUST like him). There they are; father and daughter doing some kind of jiggle butt dancing to music, following a woman who is trying her best to pretend they don’t exist for the moment. And failing at it!! I was so embarrassed, I forgot to whip out my phone to record them.
Thank God they are ADD, because they both got bored after about 5 minutes. Ignoring them was a bit easier. Until. Yes, until. My husband, following behind me as usual (and this time watching an old rerun on his phone), happened to look up and notice our daughter wasn’t where she was supposed to be. We were in the middle of the soap aisle and directly across from us were the cash registers. He noticed a couple checking out and then…a peek of red hair next to them. We stood there and watched for a second and then realized she was helping the cashier bag groceries, chatting up a storm! This even embarrassed Rick. He turned bright red and ducked behind a display and started laughing. Of course, I’m just standing there, beet red too, and all I said was, “Go get your daughter. Hurry!”.
“I have a job now! Before Allie, Evan and Christian!! I’m never gonna be as lazy as they are!” -Faith’s exact words when her dad brought her back. Evidently, she had been bagging groceries for a while. I keep saying this, but this time I think I mean it: I’m going shopping alone from now on!
My daughter is almost 11 years old and constantly has us laughing at the things she says and does. She literally has no filter…which can be VERY embarrassing at times also. The following are some new additions to the popular “Funny Things My Daughter Says”.
- “you’re a big bowl of weirdness”
- “Have you ever had a friend that made you laugh your botox off?”
- “Dad, you are so amish!”
- “Dad, you drive me up the wall.”
- “They don’t like me because they’re a bunch of butt crackers and hater-aides”
- “Allie, you’re like a zit on my face that won’t go away.”
- “When are we gonna go stare at grandma?”
- “What kind of mountains are those? Smoky?”
- A nurse asked her if she wanted to be a nurse when she grew up. She said, “No, that’s too much work. I’m going to be a lazy singer when I grow up”
- Nurse: “So, are you going to be on the X Factor or American Idol to be discovered?”. Faith: “No, I am gonna have Rihanna find me. Or maybe Jack Black.”
She came up with the last five yesterday when we took her to see her grandmother in the hospital (nothing too serious…she broke her hip, bless her heart). The nurse wanted to show her how to put an IV in and Faith ran behind me telling her to “keep that needle away from me!”. As the nurse was explaining how to do it, Faith just looked at her like she was crazy. She had all of us laughing at her.
