Shaking the head

This is my favourite picture of the summer:

It just totally sums up girls and boys. Paige was pushing these two cousins of hers on these swings (classic girl...taking care of the boys in her life), and the boys just weren't saying the kind of things that she wanted them to say (like "thank you" or "I really appreciate all the hard work you've done" or "your hair looks exceptionally beautiful today"). So she just covered her eyes and shook her head and said "Oh booooys". It's good to know that there are things she can change in her life, and there are things you just have to shake your head at.

I do this same shaking of the head when I have conversations like the following with Hailey

Hailey: Mom, is 'what the freak' a bad word?

Me: Yes

H: Is 'What the' bad?

M: Not really

H: Is 'What the heck' bad?

M: Yes

H: Is 'Underpants' bad?

M: ummm...yes it's kind of rude

H: Is 'Banana' bad?


H: What about 'banana pants'?

M: uhhh...??? (shakes head)

Oh, dear! Can you hear me laughing all the way over there? What about banana-head?

And dear Paige -- so cute and look at the faces on those boy cousins. I can hear them thinking, "Huh, what the?"
Love, G-Ma
