I need parenting advice

I was cleaning up the house yesterday (basically throwing all Kira's shit in her room) and I started to nag her about leaving crap everywhere she goes, and she said, "SHHHHHHHHHHH!"  Naturally, I'm annoyed about being shushed by anyone, much less my messy messy daughter when I find myself cleaning up after her again, and when I was about to say, "Did you really just shush me???"  she pointed to this:

and whispered, "The chicken is on the phone."

What am I going to do with this kid?  When she can make me turn into a quivering mass of laughter, how am I supposed to parent her?  I really want to know.  I really really do.


  1. That was the funniest thing I've ever read.

    Good luck with that one.

  2. Well, really the chicken IS on the phone.
    Your kid is great!

  3. I like your kid. She seems to come up with more smart answers than I ever could. I need her to come and work for me - she can work from home and pretend she's suspended with pay if she likes.

    She needs to have her own twitter account (I did not just say that, did I? I would never let my 13 yr old daughter have one....) for our amusement.

  4. Laugh when you can because sometimes you just won't be able to.

  5. I love her!!!
    So when does arrive for our summer visit??


I would love your comments.
