Phone calls

Every time the phone rings, my daughter says, “That’s Mommy! I will get it!”

 The home phone makes a unique ring noise when it’s Mommy, so I know it’s not her. My daughter hasn’t figured that out yet.

 “That’s Mommy!”  “No, it isn’t.”  “It is.”  “It isn’t, trust me.”  “It is.”  “No, it’s not.”  “It is.”  “No, it’s not.”

 That would go on for 20 minutes if the phone would ring that long, but after 6 or 8 rings, the answering machine takes over – if my daughter hasn’t climbed onto a chair and grabbed the phone first.

 Many a telemarketer has had a nice chat with her.

 “Mommy?”  “Is this Mommy?”  “You’re not Mommy!”  “where’s my Mommy!!!???”

 It’s fun for me…
