(Meticulously transcribed in her own words. Seriously. You just can't make this stuff up. It can't be done!)
Momma, I want to tell you a story. A nonfiction story. Okay? So today? At school? Two girls were, like, yelling at Will and beating him up and stuff? So I said "STOP!" And they were all, "Will has to go to the back of the line!" you know, all snotty and stuff? And I was like, "NO! Stop being mean! Just let him stay where he is!" and they said, "No! He has to go to the back! It's a rule!" And so then I totally said, "You're opinion means nothing to me" just like you taught me and they were all-- " (here she grabs my arm and re-enacts their OMG! expressions) "-- and so I was like, "What?! My mom taught me that!" and then they were all, "Fine. Whatever." So Will stayed where he was. And you know what, Momma? It made my heart smile.... (then) Oh, that means I (air quotes) "felt happy."
(I ask you: Is it possible for a momma's heart to burst with pride? In the good, metaphorical way, not the bad, "Someone Call An Ambulance!" way? Because aaaaw... CUTE. That's my baby girl.)

Heh. That little life lesson was one of my first blog posts EVAH (did you click the link?). And My Drama Queen's air quotes always crack me up. Honestly, I have NO IDEA where she gets this stuff.
Irregardless, the girl's a riot, fo' rizzle.

That's a fine young lady you've got there.
Remember Anne Frank? "Remember, Mr. So and So, remember I'm a lady!"? I'll be teaching that one to Bug.

LOVE it. My Drama Queen (she'll be NINE this month. *sniff*) has made me proud by standing up for her friends, so I totally know that heart-bursting feeling.
And I'll second (third?) the "What happened to the irregardless post?"

Well, the nature of the post left me feeling susceptible to a major "Doocing"; you know what I'm saying? Must not mock the boss online! Bad Cat! BAD!
But the whole "irregardless" thing was actually quite hilarious due to the nature of my work... and the nature of HER work. Hee! IRREGARDLESS. Redundant, much?

And thus ends the mystery of the missing post. Or (as I like to call it) IrregardlessGate. Very funny story. You should just start calling her "Mini-Me"
