This morning, Landon tried her new foam hat… the one her very talented mom made. She was thrilled with her appearance and belted out Oy Dere Lady. Beg pardon? She kept saying it Oy Dere Lady….Oy Dere Lady… Very confused I was – wondering if she was channeling Zero Mostel?? Enlightenment finally… “Oh Dere Lady…. I a pirate Mom, I a pirate”. Translatation…. Ahoy There Matey….
Okay… “sweetie this is a COWBOY hat, you know like giddyup horsey”. “Oh OTAY Mommy….. get up dere lady”. Giving up and requesting teacher parent conference immediately.
