at brownie camp...

Over the summer 'lil AG went away to Brownie camp. When I picked her up she was FILTHY, she had visible dirt smudges all over and her pink and white shoes were solid brown. I had missed her terribly and wanted to know everything she had done. These are the only three things I learned:

1. She learned a new song that she sang over and over again until she fell asleep.
2. She cooked a "hobo dinner" in the fire.
3. She only needed 2 of the 6 pairs of underwear and 1 shower because they went swimming. (In a pond, hence the dirt smudges.)

I was disappointed with the lack of information she offered me but remembered how camp always went by as such a blur, I was just glad to have my baby back.

Needless to say, I was a bit surprised when out of the blue, almost 6 months later, from the back seat of the car I hear...

AG: This one time at Brownie camp (actual words!), this girl was sitting next to me at dinner and she started crying because she ate two hot dogs and she was a vegetarian.

Me: What? Did they look like hot dogs?

AG: Yes they did, she was just real hungry and she forgot she was a vegetarian.

Me: Normally people don't forget they're a vegetarian...

AG: Kids do. I think cooks should ask if you're a vegetarian before they give you meats.

I couldn’t help but laugh at this point...sweet, trusting little girl. She reminds me so much of myself at that age. She's got alot to learn about the lies kids tell before high school...

During the same car trip AG also told me that she saw Mrs. Santa Claus at Arby's with a broken arm.
