Raising Ryanne.....

So if you know me at all you know I am always telling stories about raising our daughter Ryanne. The stuff that comes out of her mouth is just hilarious. Don't get me wrong when she isn't a laugh a minute she is very much the handful. But seeing as she has the heart of a giant, is almost in Jr, high and yet is still pocket size or as my husband likes to say, "fun size." I guess it's all just part of the adventure. So yesterday just me and Ryanne were in the car running a quick errand and I'm just singing along to the radio minding my own business when this conversation starts up;

Ryanne: "Mom, I just want you to know I'm not going to stress about you dying."

Me: "Oh you're not? Why is that?"

Ryanne: "Well let's face it, I know where you're going and that's heaven. I know I'm going to heaven too so I will see you there.

Me: "That's true."

Ryanne: "I mean, I'm not gonna lay around being all depressed after you die. I'll probably be sad for a day but then I'll land back on my feet and go on."

Me: "Good for you.....I think?"

I just started rolling with laughter. I mean what 10 year old says this?
I'm not sure if I posted this in the past but she also said,"Mom, please stop telling the silly stories that happen to me on your blog; how will I ever get a husband if he reads these?"

Our oldest said,"Really Ryanne, if some guy is reading moms blog NOW, he isn't your future husband." Ha!

Raising Ryanne is a lot of things but boring is NOT one of them!! Have a good day and I hope this made you smile.
