1. My mom took Meaghan and Mary for a special weekend recently and the girls regaled her with all kinds of factoids. I present to you a few text exchanges between myself and my mother.
(My mother's texts are grey and mine are in blue.):
Just to summarize, according to my daughters, I'm a two ton heifer and John's a drunk.
2. After a morning of misbehavior from Camille, I told her she was not going to be able to attend a tea party my mom had planned. Camille, devastated by this turn of event, ran to John.
John: Is there anything she can do to earn back the tea?
Me: Yes, obey me right away for the rest of the day.
Camille: Ok, I'll do that except....if what you say is weird. Then, forget it.

3. Another confidence boost from Camille, right before Mass on Sunday morning--
Me: How do I look?
Camille: Ummm...yeah...I like your lipstick.
