during our walk to school this morning.
Daughter: "Mom, we have five people in our family, right?
Mom: "You mean including the fish? Yes, then five."
Daughter: "But we have cousins and other people too."
Mom: "Yes, but in our immediate family, we have five, including the fish."
Daughter: "Yep, five."
Son (finally listening): "No silly. We only have four."
Mom: "She's including the fish."
Son: "Oh, right then, five. I totally forgot."
In all dead panned seriousness....and little do they know that our "fish" is actually the sixth member (the original fifth member bit the dust over the summer but I couldn't tell them) #momsecrets #momwimpiness
