E: Mom, I got 2 new library books today!
Me: Oh good Emaline!
E: Yep, and just who is Paris Hilton and Richie?
Me: What???? How do you know who Paris Hilton is?
E: Well, that is what book I got! I got Paris Hilton and Selena Gomez.
E: I mean, why are they famous anyway?
Me: Well, Selena Gomez is on Disney channel and dated a famous singer (the car of 5 children all yell Just Bieber!), and was in Ramona and Beezus. Paris Hilton, well she is just famous for having money and making really bad decisions.
E: What bad decisions?
Really, why are these the books she picked out? AND why pick a biography of someone you have NO idea who they are? We will sit down together and read both these picks. I think she picked Paris Hilton because she is holding a dog, but WHY does she even have a biography in an elementary library?
Well, after thinking about it, I told her she could keep Selena Gomez, but Paris had to go back! She didn't resist. After school the next day I asked her if her teacher allowed her to go to the library and pick up a new one, her response:
MOM, I told Mrs. E that you didn't like the book I picked out and that you wanted me to get a new one. AND once she saw what book I had she said that IF SHE would have seen what book I had gotten she wouldn't have let me get it either! SO, I got Mia Hamm.
I LOVE that her teacher felt the same as me. Shew.
