Shannon has always (like since birth) born a strong resemblance to a particular moody/bossy Peanuts character. (she is also strikingly similar to a certain aunt who happens to be very much like Lucy too)
My eldest daughter's dark hair and angry face coupled with frequent referrals to her brother as a "stupid blockhead" make her a dead ringer for the cartoon.
Yesterday, because she was feeling especially superior, she kept referring to herself as "The Great One" and called Daniel "The Pain".
When I asked her what made her so great she said "Because I know what I'm talking about. I know what I'm doing. I know my manners. I do my chores when I want to."
(From the hand drawn bubble over Lucy's head to Shannon's mouth.)
When asked why Dan was a pain she said "Because he picks his nose, then his ears, then his butt. (sorry) And also he doesn't know what he's doing. And also he never ever knows what he is gonna say. He just makes something up."
What can I say, she's got men all figured out. She's wiser than her years.
I'm so proud.
