Because we all need a good laugh sometimes…

A dear friend, who shall remain anonymous, sent me this email in regard to her intrepid second grader:

 

Subject: Champagne anyone?

OMG.  X, left to her own devices by Dad and before I got home with
the alternate dinner, decided to make a fancy dinner on her own.  Salad with dried lentils sprinkles (um crunchy) to start, followed by left over stuffed shells, and a light dessert of  vanilla ice cream with
crushed Thin Mint GS cookies and a Valentines chocolate.  All in all
quite nice.  And to drink –  champagne, which she’d gotten out of the
fridge and opened all by herself.  GASP!  Boarding school.  The only
hope.  Start collecting all nickels, dimes, quarters now.

I understand your concern, but this one is filed under priceless. Tell
her lentils might be hard on her teeth. Oh, and that she should wait a
few years for her next sip of champagne. It will taste better then. Love
you all, Linnea

We do have to remember that this is the child that at age 3 or 4 declared she wanted to “drink champagne and mambo all night”.

PS:  How’d she get that bottle open?

All by herself.  How’d she know how to get the bottle open????
