Our family took one last hurrah and went camping over Labor Day weekend. I had a good time visiting with my siblings and watching our kids play together.

However, it was bound to happen. My kids are notorious for saying things they shouldn’t, or saying things completely off the wall.

It was cold one morning and while the adults were playing a card game, my sister’s little girl was running around in a t-shirt, so my sister promptly began to pull a sweater over her head. The 4 year old began squirming and wriggling around, refusing to have the sweater pulled over her head.

My sister laughed in frustration and said, “Hold still, you little monkey!”

My 7 year old who was sitting next to me, suddenly piped up, “Huh. My mom always calls us freaks!”

I love that girl.

Even worse, I couldn’t deny it. :)

I call mine monkeys and threaten to run away to the circus, They usually inform me "This IS the circus!" What's a girl to do when faced with logic like that??
