Some days, 7th Heaven can't make up her mind.
"Hey Mom, has it been three months?"
"Three months since what, baby?"
"It's the end of July, the seventh month. . ."
"What are you getting at?" Halfway Between (10 & 20) chimed in.
"Stay out of this!" His sister fussed.
"Honey, we're just trying to figure out what you're talking about!" I was hoping to head off an argument. . .and figure out what the heck she was talking about!
"HAS-IT-BEEN-THREE-MONTHS?" She tried to spell it out.
"Do you mean summer?" Halfway was trying to be the interpreter.
"NO! I was a first-grader. Mom said it would be three months until I was a second grader."
"Oh. . ." Sometimes we Moms are a little slow on the uptake. "You have about three and a half weeks until school starts."
"Yeah!" she said. Then thought for a second, "Noooooooooooo!" Then a few seconds later, "Yeah!"
"Well, are you happy, or not?" her brother asked.
"Honestly, I'm just not sure!"
Sweetheart, honestly, neither are we!
