Shopping trip

After gymnastics and other Saturday morning activities, I had a girls' afternoon in town with 12 yo foster daughter and nieces 11 and 7 馃槉 We bumped into my line manager who was pleased to finally meet the small people I spend so much time talking about.

7 yo was not impressed by this unscheduled delay and eventually chirped up:

"It was nice to meet you, but we need to go shopping. We're going to buy pasta, broccoli and a mop. Then we will have tuna sandwiches and ice cream for lunch. If there is no broccoli, we will get sugar snaps instead".

Time to move on 馃ぃ

@Justme264 We could learn a lot from them about clear and unambiguous communication! 馃槉
Justme26461-69, M
@SunshineGirl Indeed we could... none of this mixed message nonsense - !
MommyLucy36-40, F
@SunshineGirl I completely agree with you on that! 馃馃馃
A lot of people Need this 7 yo in their lives!

Kind of a well put "I don't need this shit" that is
Polite, No Nonsense, Factual and Right to the Point.

How are the girls getting along? Any weirdness because of the circumstances?
SunshineGirl36-40, F
@ineedadrink They get along very well. My 11 yo niece already knows my foster daughter through gymnastics club and two of my other nieces go to the same school as her.

Nieces have been telling me for years that I need children of my own. I'm well on the way now 馃檪
