Learning About Relationships With Lulu

Before I re-visit the cute conversation I had with little Lulu today, I feel she deserves an introduction. She is my little 1st grade translator because she speaks fluent English...not only does she speak FLUENT English, she speaks American/Canadian English!!! I don't have to change my vocabulary. She uses normal words, rather than terms like "the bin", "the garden", and "I haven't got..." (don't get me wrong, I have a love of the British that borderlines on obsession...but sometimes I just want to speak American English!). Moreso, I love her because she is generally awesome. She is sassy and in your face, and I love her one-liners I hear all the time. I have some REALLY good stories about her involving head scarves, Christmas Presents, and flashing people...ask me about these at your leisure. Here is the play-by-play of our conversation today:
  • Lulu: Hanna, come here please...I need to talk to you about something important.
  • Me: What's up, Lulu?
  • Lulu: So Marci said he's in love with me, but he is suddenly pretending like I am invisible. Isn't that stupid? (P.S. this whole conversation took place with Marci sitting right behind Lulu...who cares? He can't understand anyways...)
  • Me: That is quite silly of him...boys can be that way sometimes.
  • Lulu: Are boys this stupid all the time? Even when they're your age?
  • Me: Sigh. Well, yes...they tend to be. But there are a few very nice boys out just have to look a little harder for them! (wink!)
  • Lulu: Gosh, why does all of this have to be so confusing??!
  • Me: I know, Lulu...go back to coloring right have years and years to worry about this. Just know there's a nice boy somewhere out there who won't always be stupid.
  • Lulu: Marci, you're stupid!
