Out of the mouth of Lauren

I took the little girls to see Charlotte's Web today. It was a special date for just the three of us. I even splurged and bought them each a kiddie snack tray complete with an Icee. It was a very sweet movie except that Fern sassed her Daddy and bossed him around and got her own way. Other than that I loved the movie. I pictured Fern's parents to be plump and older but I thought the actors did a nice job. The mom was pretty and sweet. Julia Robert's voice is lovely and fits Charlotte well.

Here is the conversation on the way to the movie:

Lauren: Oh! Look at the flag, it's down half way. Why?

Me: Yes, Lauren you're right. It's like that because a special man, a man who used to be president, died and it's a way to show respect and remember him.

Lauren: He died? Who KILLED him?

Me: (Choke, gasp, cough.) Um, no one KILLED him baby, he died of old age. He was 93. He just DIED.

Lauren: Oh, OK.

And here is what she said on the way home, two hours later:

Lauren: Oh, there is another flag down half way.

Me: You're right!

Lauren: I guess two presidents died.


She just cracks me up!
