So I mentioned in my last post (the one about Thanksgiving) that Caroline had questions by each of our plates asking us such things as, "What we would have done if we were starting a new country." or "Who we're thankful for." and other thought provoking questions to get us thinking about the importance of the day we were celebrating. The question Kelsi got was perfect for her, but her answer cracked me up. I thought I'd share. Her question; "If you were to create a family crest, what would it look like and what symbolism would you use on it? Her answer; "I don't know what it would really look like but the symbolism would be 4 monkeys and a tiki head." After we all laughed, she went on to explain that she and Afton, Brady and Brad were the 4 monkeys and that I (the mom) was the tiki head. She tried to explain by saying that the kids and dad are always goofing around like monkeys and that mom was the grumpy tiki head that was always trying to get them to stop.
Hmph, I don't wanna be the Tiki head. Does that mean I'm too serious? Does that mean I'm too grumpy? Does that mean I don't know how to have fun? I've never pictured myself as any of those things. What is it, exactly, that my family perceives me as? I guess I need to lighten up.
I also think I'm going to interpret "tiki head" as meaning "responsible". That fits......right?
I guess I'll sign off for now.
Sincerely, The Tiki Head
