Yesterday my eldest daughter gave me a good chuckle with something she said. Usually these days, it's Malia who says things that crack me up -- but this time it was Joelle's turn.
The girls were in the living room and suddenly Malia was complaining to me: "Mom...Joelle stuck her tongue out at me!"
Joelle was immediately ready to defend her actions, as she replied: "No! My tongue just had energy."
Ah, yes...the "my-tongue-just-had-energy-so-I-had-no-choice-but-to-stick-it-out-at-my-sister" excuse. Well played, my child. Well played.
