So today, instead of Naomi begging for and getting a story from me, she decided to sit down on the floor and tell me some of her own adventures. This is how it went.
Naomi: Mommy, would you like to hear some of *my* best adventure stories?!?!?
Me: Um, YES, please!!
Naomi: Ok, did you know that one time I went to college?
Me: You did? What did you do there?
Naomi: Yes, I did, and I worked and worked and worked, and I couldn't even come home until Monday!
Then when I did try to come home I went to "Curb Street" [a completely made up street] but our home wasn't on Curb Street and I went farther and farther away from our home and I couldn't find you!
Then I got chased by a huge, big, enormous bee and it stung me on the neck and I was running and running and then I called you and asked you if I could have your car to drive home.
So you came and picked me up and gave me the car and you rode your bike home and I drove home [why am I riding my bike home?].
Then I ran and ran into the house and slammed the door because the big, huge, enormous bee was still behind me. But we got away.
Me: Wow. You win. That beats all of my best adventure stories.
Me: Can I go post this on my blog?
Naomi: Yeah, sure!! Bernadette, mommy is gonna go post my adventures on her blog.
This is pretty much word for word how this just went down.
Now go try and have more exciting day than her, just try.
