Blueberry started karate today. Rhubarb, Eggplant, and HotNerd have been taking it all fall and Blueberry chose it over dance or gymnastics. On the way out the door she let me know she was putting her "shy" in the flour bin until we got home. She did great.
Anyway, on the way home, she told us she wished we were in an ambulance and that "this was an emergency".
Eggplant, responded, "Blueberry, if we were in an ambulance, someone would be hurt."
Blueberry noted, "I know. I wish this was an emergency."
Eggplant asked, "Like you're forehead when you had your boo boo?"
Blueberry, Word Girl, retorted, "Eggplant, it's not a boo boo. It's damage."
Rhubarb chimed in, "Blueberry, I think damage is like what can happen to your car if it gets hit."
Blueberry responded, slightly annoyed, "Well, you can also damage yourself. I damaged my forehead. "E" (Blueberry's best friend and the subject of many pretend conversations Blueberry invents to practice big words) damaged herself with her little toy crib."
I LOVE backseat conversations!
