Sisters

These are my two little girls.  They are beautiful, but only to look at.  They are both going through pre-pms and if this is just the beginning, I'm really, REALLY scared!  If it wasn't against the law I'd get them married off and out of my house before PMS begins.

  The kids were outside this evening when I returned home from work, they were digging there on the side of the shed.  I hollered out and asked what they were doing.  My oldest girl Becca replied 'We're burying a hole'.  Now I was sure I had heard incorrectly so I asked again and she repeated again that she was burying a hole.  I repeated it back and she gave me one of those exasperated looks that kids give their parents when they think the grown up is just too stupid to understand.  "As in putting the dirt back in!" she said with a roll of her eyes.  Well, now you know why I call her my dark blonde!  She is also the one who super-glued her lips together.  I actually liked her better that way and left her like that while I went to work.  She has followed in the family tradition of hunting and pulled in the largest turkey last year.

My youngest is the source of many of my laughs and frustrations.  She eats beetles just to gross out the others, she once tried to sell herself for $5 so she could buy a mobile of the planets, and has a temper that makes the bedroom scene in the Exosist look like Romper Room. Rocky has a big heart for animals, but while she is not yet a hunter like her sister, she will get in there and help cleaning any game that the rest of the family brings home.  Her favorite defense when ever she gets into trouble is "I can't help it, I have short term memory!"

Yep, these are my girls, and my mother's revenge.  I guess it could be worse, I could have really prissy daughters but no, I have tomboys just like myself.  I'm sorry mom, really I am.  Please say I wasn't this bad!!!

Don't know how my parents survived with 5 girls... but they did so I know it can be done.  I'm just not looking forward to it.  What I AM looking forward to is becoming a grandmother.  I'll be taking those grandbabies in for weeks at a time teaching them all kinds of rotten things to pull on their parents, like how to flick peas on the ceiling and make them stick, or how to make those annoying green spots on the TV set with a magnet!
