Don't MESS with the DRESS!
And I’m like, “WHAT? He kissed you? WHO kissed you?”
She shrugs again, her anger waning and says, “I said ‘Don’t MESS with the DRESS!’”
I burst out laughing and say, “You actually said that?”
She nods very seriously and says, “Yep. I did. It’s from that movie, Mom, the Barbie movie, but I was wearing a dress today, so I figured it worked.”
And I’m nodding because, seriously, it did work. “What happened then?” I ask.
“Well, then he got in trouble. The teacher yelled at him and he had to go to the principal’s office!”
And I’m thinking, Oh, that poor, little boy! Come on people, it was just a kiss!
Then Abbie says, “But, guess what? I didn’t get in trouble at all. I told the teacher that YOU said I was supposed to slap boys if they tried to kiss me and she agreed, and Mom, I think she was laughing.”
And I smile and say, “Abbie, I’m sure she was.”
