|A water hose and a phone because of course you have to tell your friends how you're washing the car...why, I'm not entirely certain (but I do know it's a necessity).|
Today she's outside trying to grab his attention, seeing if 'you look different' means, 'you look hot,' or whatever it is kids say these days that means the same thing. So since she was aimlessly hanging out in the front yard and blatantly looking like she was trying to grab his attention, eek, boys... I only like my own boys around my daughter, lol...I called her in and said, "Hey, since you're out there, you wanna wash my car?" She jumped at the chance.
Knowing I was on to a good thing (I'm trying to write to pay bills today), I pressed my good fortune with, "Do you want to take your little brother with you (who would, of course love to help)?"
"I don't care."
Woo hoo! Double score! I'm so loving this teen thing... just so long as "the boy" keeps not noticing her.
The best part, I think she's somewhat forgotten the boy...she's too busy laughing with/squirting her brother (who is delighted to be out there playing with her and the water, by the way). The worst part, if she's really forgotten about the boy, that's when he'll start to take notice. I remember how these things work, and as much as things change, some of them stay exactly the same. ;)
