Conversations With Olivia (2)

Setting: While driving near Potomac Mills Mall about a year ago, I MAY have been a trifle late stopping at a traffic signal.

Olivia: "Daddy?"

Me: Yes, babe?

Olivia: "Daddy, that light was red"

Me: (innocently) "Was it, babe?"

Olivia: (not buyin' it) "Yes, it was"

Me: (sheepish) "um…"

Olivia: "Daddy?"

Me: Yes, babe?

Olivia: "God saw that."

Me: "I'm sure he did, babe"


Busted.

Wow! She got you on that one! You taught her well. Maybe too well... : )

Grimm said...

Ooooo, she pulled out the God card? At 7?

I say you put that one away and pull it out when she is a teenager.

"Honey, it's midnight and your curfew is 11."

"It is?"

"Yes it is."

"..."

"God saw that."

Good idea, Grimm... that'll learn her!

Very cute! And bright too.

Very astute young lady, I bet she keeps you on your toes!

Zanne said...

She certainly IS your daughter!
(and you are sooo busted!)

I really HATE when my kids pull the "God" card! How can you argue with that! Sounds like she has a good head on her shoulders.

My daughter has now taken to censoring the radio. The other day she told me a song was inapropriate because it said the word "sexy". She simply could not understand why I found that so amusing!

You go Olivia! Lovely, lovely girl.

Actually, reminds me of a story. My friend's neighbor poisoned his cat and killed it. My friend's wife was so enraged, but could do nothing about it legally. So, she wrote up a sign and hung it in the dining room window facing the cat murderer's house.

The sign said, "God sees you."
