Daughter Stories

My daughter just told me that she had hiccups today and when you have hiccups you need to drink water. So I asked her if she drank some water. She said "no," because her teacher was angry. Why was she angry? Because she lost something and it took a long time to find it.
When my daughter tells me stories like these it really makes me panic. What stories from home does she tell her teacher? "Mommy said she'd pull her hair out if my brother didn't do his homework," or something equally newsworthy that I don't even remember saying. Scary, I tell you.
Yesterday my daughter asked me, "Mommy, how do you say "computer" in English?" !!! I'm still amazed, though, my children are basically able to keep two languages straight in their heads. They get confused much less often than I do.

One time we were at friends house having dinner. They have 3 boys. They offered us wine and the littlest son had to announce,"My Parents LOVE alcohol. I mean they REALLY, REALLY, REALLY love it." They both went ashen and my husband and I just busted out laughing.
It does make you wonder what they say when your not around.

BM, Great story. When we lived in DC our neighbor was a kindergarten teacher and she always warned us to be careful what we say because the little kids repeat EVERYTHING!
