Is it only us or do you guys also have this I-wanna-be-the-first situation goin' on in your household? Especially if you have more than 1 kid? I don't know but this has plagued us since sushi. The girls are constantly fighting to be first in everything : first to brush teeth, first to get their bowl of soup or rice, first to poo. The only time I remember them not ever fighting for the spotlight is if either are busy watching their favourite show/movie on tv. They'd gladly give up their spot for whoever in case they miss the part where JR gets shot. When that happens, my grandmother can be the first for all is cared for in the world.
Last night was just like any other night. But, for some reason, I was actually listening to their conversation - usually, I'd be cleaning up in the kitchen - and last night's amusing "fight" took place (this is only just an extract) :
Ash and Em : Yadda...yadda...yadda
Ash : No!!! Me first!!
Em : No..I (go) first!!
Ash : Daddy said I go first!!!
Em : NO!! Your friends (are) ugly; my friends (are) PINK!! **shows
p.s : for the life of me, I have absolutely no idea why or what prompted Em to hit back with the friends thing. Maybe she spoke too fast? Or, just wanted to confuse Ash? Whatever is it (or was), I burst out laughing...silently in the kitchen. I don't know how hubby can stand there with a poker..waiting for them to finish their duel. He must've been really really tired.
