Senior Moments and Drama Queens

Gracie, our resident drama queen, is quick to roll her eyes and look as horrified as humanly possible whenever Will and I do just about anything. She began channeling her inner teenager at about 10 months old and has had the OMG, Mom and Dad you are ruining my LIFE look perfected for years.

Mostly this is annoying, as I'm not particularly a fan of 6-year-olds with attitudes. But sometimes... Well, sometimes I can't blame the poor girl.


Setting: Kitchen. After overhearing advertisement for the movie Rio.

ME: That movie wasn't too bad.

WILL: What movie?

ME: Rio. The one with the blue parrots.

GRACIE: Yeah, that was funny. And the baby parrot was so cute!

WILL: I don't remember a movie with blue parrots.

ME: We just saw it. Seriously, like a couple weeks ago.

GRACIE [rolling eyes]: Uh, yeah.

WILL: Do you mean the one with the funny brother and the dad from the movie where he's the art teacher?

ME: No, that's Diary of a Wimpy Kid. We saw Rio sometime after. But not that long ago, seriously. Like, we just saw it.

WILL: ... No, I don't know.

GRACIE [disbelieving]: You really don't remember?

ME: Come on, you have to remember. We saw it in 3D. I'm not sure why. [stopping to think] We were there for something...

GRACIE [horrified]: Um. Yeaaaaaah, we were.

ME [still thinking]: Hmmmm... why did we go to the movies that day?

GRACIE: WHAT? You don't remember? [with OMG, Mom and Dad you are ruining my LIFE look on face]: That was my birthday.

ME: Uh...

WILL: ... Uh.... And what a special day it was!

GRACIE [raises brows, shakes head]: Yeah.


Whoops. Poor girl.

And poor us - shouldn't ages 27 and 30 be too young for senior moments?

Oh heck, I have senior moments all the time! I don't think being a senior has anything to do with it. ;)
