Quote of the Day: “Well…I’m a Republican!”

Yup.  She really said that.  Mad about me denying her another piece of cake (as in seconds), the little cherub offered up this statement intended to pierce her dear mother’s heart to its core. 

Unfortunately for her it didn’t have the desired effect (meaning, a second piece of cake), nor did it leave me distraught, or in tears, or pleading with her to please, please, please take it back.

I turned my back to her so she couldn’t see the humongous smile on my face (I didn’t want to disrespect her for her artfully intelligent thought of something that would equal the unhappiness I had created in her.)  Then I tried to keep my laughter in as I turned back and said to her, ever so kindly and sweetly, “Well, darling, that is definitely your opinion.  And, as we’ve talked about SEVERAL times, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.  Even if we don’t agree with it, or believe the same thing.  So, even though I don’t agree with what you said, you can think whatever way you want.  And I will love you just as much right now as I did before.  I will ALWAYS love you, no matter what you say or what you believe.”

So you see, I can be reasonable.

About madranchwife

Mother, Mad Ranchwife(as in--at times-- crazy, nutso, loco, off-my-rocker insane), Veterinarian, Physical Therapist, "Liberal, pinko, gay-loving, Subaru-driving Socialist" (as I've been called), proud to be a totally tree-huggin', climate change believin', granola girl environmentalist, ObamaGirl, Pro-Choice (don't even get me started here...), and in my younger days a feminist vegetarian as a result of time spent at CU Boulder (this lasted approximately 14 months, until all the Jimmy Buffett I was listening to caused me to crave a cheeseburger). Now I just get pleasure out of swimming against the stream and ruffling a few feathers here in the wild west state of Wyoming!
