Here is how a conversation between the kids and I went the other day.
Lexi: "Mommy, what is this called?"
Me: "A Blow Pop."
Lexi: "Did you have one of these when you were a kid?"
Me: "Yes Lexi, I have had a lot of Blow Pops. Some even when I wasn't a kid."
Lexi: "You mean when you were a teenager?" Starting to get sassy.
Me: "Yes, some when I was a teenager. Teenagers are still kids, though."
Lexi: "No, they aren't." Her sassy voice is in full force now. And we go back a forth a few times. Chris decides to join in.
Chris: "There was a boy one at Chipotles the other day and it was a boy teenager." He swings his hips back and forth and does his smirk.
I have to laugh, calling the teenager "it"! They can be "its" sometimes, I am sure!
