I just walked out onto the front porch to find Schatz jumping rope to Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger". Did her daddy teach her that? Did she hear it on my workout playlist? Did she pick that song herself? I didn't ask because it was too cute and she's entering a self conscience phase.
Schatz is a sassy six year old. She is a handful. "Schatz" (Shot-zee) is a German endearment like honey or sweetie.
Early on I decided that I had two options with this child. I could get frustrated with her when she is sassy or bossy; or I could recognize the humor in the situation, grab a pen, and write it down. I chose the latter. Yes, this is real. No, this is not an exaggeration.
In the spirit of fair parenting, I've started peppering this blog with the funny things that my older daughter says and does. You can't make this stuff up!
