No one does family drama like Mrs. Smith – and she’s got the pictures to back it up. She submitted this Wednesday afternoon, but I was backed up a bit and couldn’t post it. Excuse the dated references to the Sunflower Showdown – it’s not her fault. Here’s the latest in “Mama Sayz”:
One week, four days, five hours, 33 minutes and 17, 18, 19 seconds…
Why the countdown, you might ask? Maybe the Sunflower Showdown? No. That’s how long little Miss Tiffany and the rest of the family had to “bond” before her daddy returned from his latest road trip adventure.
Now, don’t get me wrong. Tiffany is as sweet as she appears in person to most people at the games, the mall, daycare and the countless other places that people may meet her. However, she is the only one of my five roommates who challenges EVERYTHING I say or do! The whole time that her daddy was gone on his longest road trip ever we practiced with her what she was going to do during the Little Cat Slam Jam Competition and had it down to perfection. The moment she and her Dad walked into the tunnel just before half-time of the Iowa State game, she tells him, “Daddy, I don’t want to do what Mommy showed me. I wanted to spin around and then dunk — like Michael.” He said to her to do what ever she wanted to. Although I was pleased that she pulled out the win, I just couldn’t figure out what happened to the big performance we had planned until she announced what happened when we got to the car.
