Kids Say

Overheard in my backyard

Okies so we are all in COVID distancing right now so I can’t share any sayings from my students (or can I? Last week I had live chats with them for the first time so maybe that will bring about some new gems).

I say I’m distancing alone, but really I have a whole house full of people. Kinda. I share a basement apartment with Crazy and the main floor tenants are one family who is really nice. Since we all share the laundry room, I say we all “live together” so it’s totally fine to hang out.

One day was really super nice so when I returned from my morning walk I was lucky enough to run into the dad from upstairs. I asked if it was ok for me to use their patio chairs in the back to read outside that afternoon. He said sure no problem!

I go out and I’m there for about an hour and a half, the 7yr old running in and out of the backyard to talk and show me things. Then I hear the 14yr old mutter something about the backyard.

7: GF is back there.

14: UGH STILL?! (as if my sitting quietly on a chair in the far back corning is disrupting his life haha)

7: Don’t be rude! She’s reading a book! She can sit back there if she wants to!

  1. Sounds like a teen! But, if my maths are correct, they have 14yr old, 7 yr old and baby? One every 7 years? No. Nope, uhuh, never. You just get them to the really good independent stage and you start again? Bonkers, lol.

  2. Haha well the 14 year old was born when the mom was 14 herself. So it makes sense that there was a gap between them haha! But yes your math is correct! Baby is due in October
