On the way to school this morning, we were stopped at a light. The lights in both directions on the cross-street (both of which we could see), were also red. Ryan is very impatient and gets annoyed when we get held up by traffic lights (and in her defense, we go through about 25 between our house and school... it is annoying when we hit the 'red wave').
Ry: Ugh. Why are all the lights red?! They shouldn't all be red!!
Me: They're not all red. The one across from us is green, as indicated by the very large truck coming directly at us. Duh.
Ry (sheepishly): Oh.
Me (putting my hand on her head): Have a little common sense, Grasshopper.
Ry (quietly): Yeah. Have a little butt cheek, Mama.
Me (looking at her rather incredulously): ...
Ry (looking straight ahead, grinning): ...
Me: Ummm... did you just tell me, in a round-about way, to kiss your butt?
Ry (grinning bigger): Huh? What? Me?
I knew the time would come when I would regret being such a smart-ass to my kid all the time. Yeah. That time arrived today.
PS... thanks for all your comments on yesterday's post. They were very sweet and some of them actually made me cry. As you can see from today's post, Ryan is fine. Which may not continue, should she offer up any more butt cheeks.
