Conversation

Me: (opening Bennett's backpack after school) Look, Bennett. There's an invitation in your backpack today. You got invited to a birthday party.

Bennett: Yay! Whose birthday party is it?

Me: Ummm.... it's Jordan's.

Bennett: I don't know a Jordan.

Me: Well, the invitation says that it is for Jordan's birthday party.

Bennett: But I really don't know a Jordan.

Me: Isn't there a Jordan in your class?

Bennett: No.

Me: Are you sure, honey?

Bennett: MOM! There's not a Jordan in my class.

Me: Well, it says right here that it is Jordan's party. Is she in another class and you met her on the playground?

Bennett: (getting increasingly frustrated) MOM! I don't know a Jordan. There isn't one at my school.

Me: Well, I guess you're going to Jordan's party. Is Jordan a boy or a girl?

Bennett: MOM! I DON'T KNOW A JORDAN!

Me: (calling Rob over) Rob, read this invitation. Does it or does it not say Jordan?

Rob: (taking all of 2 seconds to read it) No, it says Jayden.

Bennett: Yeah, Jayden is my friend from school.

Me: Oh, sorry.

Bennett: Mom, I think the baby in your tummy is making you say wrong things.

so that you aren't completely confused why you had a "visitor from Korea, Republic of" It's me, Chelsea! Your long lost friend from Frazier. I'm living in Korea. I do a blog too, I am trying to find out how to subscribe to your blog. Am I missing something? I don't see a "follow" or "subscribe" button? But, other than that, congrats on getting a house and pre-congratulations on your forthcoming new addition :)

Hey Chelsea! I had no idea you were in Korea. So good to "see" you again. :-) You can subscribe to this blog through google reader. There should be a little button that says "join this site" and it is right under my followers list. Hope this helps.
