miss jackson if you're

(Girl on tummy in bath, doing complicated maneuver where she brings her legs up under herself, then jumps and does a frog kick back while dropping her face into the bubbles. Legs piston. Jump. Frog kick. Piston. Kick. Giggle.)

Mom: Whoa there, jumping bean. Are you an acrobat?

Rosey (grinning) No, Mama, I'm NASTY!

Mom: (the eighties song beginning to beat in her head) Really?

Rosey: Yup! I'm a Nastiest!

Mom: (opens and shuts mouth a few times as visions of far-off proms spent in jail cells run through her head)

Rosey: On the balance beam!

Mom: (relieved) Of course! You're a GYMNAST!



Rosey: Mama? Why are you LAUGHING AT ME?

I cannot even envision what the child was doing? Is she some sort of Cirque du Soleil apprentice?

Erin said...

That is too funny.

Years from now she is going to be SO EMBARASSED when you tell that story to boyfriends... which makes it all the more funny.

Yeah, phew! (I had to re-read that with more American/Canadian accents in my head, ovah heah we say Nah-sty. But not Gym-nahst, that would be weird)

Who needs TV or the movies when the best entertainment comes from the mouths of gymnasts in bathtubs!
