Well, smack my bum and call me Sally!

Thursday, November 04, 2010
Remember what happened in this post. Well, the following phone call happened the other day:

Me:    Hello
Daughter:  Really...
Me: {racing thoughts of all that this may encompass}  What?
Daughter:  REALLY ?!
Me:  I don't think I know what we're talking about.
Daughter: Your BLOG {the last word said like it's a 4-letter word, well it IS a 4-letter word, but you get me}
Me: {smack my a*% and call me Sally!!  excitement builds} You.. Read.. My.. Blog???!!  {chest begins to fill with pride}
Daughter:  Uh, NO, I happened to see your link on Facebook.
{excitement leaves...of course...facebook..drats}
Me:   Oh... {not at all prepared for this}....did you like it ?
Daughter:  What do you think?
Daughter:  {busts out laughing} Oh my gosh, mom! 
Me:   I love you, Maris!!!

Prom '10

What I didn't include in the previous post, is that Maris truly has the best sense of humor on earth. Although sarcastic, {she comes by it naturally} she is the funniest kid around. She adores laughing and making others laugh and she has the best smile. ever. And the best part--she loves to laugh at herself. How many teenagers can do this?

{she struck a pose that she found to be hilarious}

She is gracious and kind. A stellar athlete (Varsity Track, Volleyball and Basketball) An honor roll student. Student Council Secretary. Actress.

OK, enough already.....
So, although we have the normal 'teenager issues', I absolutely adore this creative, motivated, happy girlie-girl.  

We were at a game the other day and someone asked her "Maris, what do you want to be when you grow up? Without so much as a breathe she answered 'A trophy wife'. Wish you could have seen everyones expressions......

She has one great sense of humor--as do you! How do you pronounce her name?
