Conversation With a 6-Year-Old

I've been wearing a lot of all black lately. Here are two! two! two! days' worth of ensembles in one handy post. And also? FINALLY got my hurr fixed. Sort of, or at least, we're working towards what I want (THANK YOU for the recommendation, Gina - I loved Elisabeth). I know, I know - it's pretty subtle, but I can tell the difference - not so red anymore, and lighter on the sides like I had asked. Can you tell? 

And now, I present to you...Conversation With A 6-Year Old....


Setting: The park, swinging with Gavin, and a little red-haired girl comes over to swing next to us.

Girl: Hi!
Me: Hi - what's your name?



Girl: Markie.
Me: How old are you, Markie?


Markie: I'm six. Tonight I ate spaghetti for dinner and it's on my neck. My sisters ate fettucini, and I LOVE strawberries. When I was a baby I only ate strawberries and nothing else! I have two cousins - that's a LOT. Their names are Devon - he's 1 month old, and Laney, and Mia. I have two sisters. One is 13 and her name is Heaven. Why are you swinging with him? What is his name?
Me: Gavin.


Markie: How old is he? Is your daughter here playing soccer? My sisters are playing soccer. Do you have any other daughters?
Me: I have one daughter and two sons.


Markie: How old are they?
Me: They're all four.


Markie: Is your daughter going to play soccer? My sister is playing soccer. I am in kindergarten and it is THE BEST CLASS EVER. We don't even read! My kindergarten class is the BEST. Is that your husband?
Me: Yes.



Markie: How old is he?
Me: He's 44.
Markie: My dad is 42. I am 6, and I'm going to be 7 next year. I LOVE strawberries.

...and so on and so forth...

Call me crazy, but I couldn't help but think of this Mike Myers character whilst conversing with Markie...
