Quote of the Day

I asked YaYa to check on the progress of a frozen pizza we had in the oven. After much hemming and hawing and one idle threat she got up and went into the kitchen.

"It's done," she called.

Lisa and I were in the living room. "Go check it," I said, a little irritated at YaYa's delay. "She probably never even opened the stove."

A moment later Lisa reported that the pizza was, in fact, perfect and good to go.

"You know what you should do?" Lisa told YaYa tongue-in-cheek, and well within my earshot. "You should march in there and tell your Daddy off for not believing in you."

YaYa hesitated. "Go," Lisa said, laughing. "Tell him off."

YaYa walked into the living room and opened her mouth to speak.

"Daddy," she said. She paused, looking very confused. "Off."

I love it !!

I agree with Sybil, very very funny, did Yaya know how funny it was or did she get mad

Out of the mouths of babes.......

I may have to try that the next time someone doubts my verdicts. A simple "Off" really should do the trick.

Can I borrow her for a business meeting I need to go to? They could use her practical logic.

They are precious! So, was the pizza done to your liking?

Hugs, Rose
