This day in history...

"Don't you roll your eyes at me!"

~Please note the date. First use of a phrase that Anna willl hear for the rest of her life.

Recently, a favorite neighbor, somone who knows Anna very well, said,
"She doesn't have a quiet voice. Just one volume. Loud."
I, of course, took that as a high compliment. I love a girl who can make herself heard!
But she also has a less charming habit.
eye rolling 
I hypothesize that eye rolling is genetic. Katie doesn't do it. Anna does.
Anna is more like me in her reactions.
"Uh, Yeah?"
Trust me. Call me the Gregor Mendel of disrespect.
God help you sweet child.

Sheep May Safely Graze

We were discussing the grazing efficiency of various ungulates
relative to their desirability as pets.
(Don't ask.)
Anna cast her vote for big fluffy sheep. 

"What about goats?" asked RB.

"Nope. Horned animals scare me."

You have to respect a girl who knows what she likes.
