Yard duty can be fun…

Preppie demonstrates her numerous plaits with a twirl…
Me: “Very cool – does your hair go all curly when you take them out?”
Preppie: “No it goes all…wiggly (demonstrates with whole body)

Me: “Where’s your snuggly hat and gloves you usually wear? Did you leave them at home today?”
Preppie: “No I brought them but they wanted to stay inside today!”

Talking about her family, she has 2 little sisters…
Me: “Do you have any big sisters [too]?”
Preppie: (pityingly – she’s sure I’ve misunderstood her) “No! I AM the big sister”
