My Mom and I...AND a giveaway!

We're quite the interesting pair.
Especially when we talk on the phone, and it's late at night, and we're both exhausted.
We start off having a normal conversation, but then we get off on tangents.
Tonight it was all about Spanish.
We were talking about finding a way to get my big stuff into a storage facility around here over the summer. Then, I got a bunch of texts that she had sent almost an hour before that didn't come because my reception sucks. One of them said, "Te quiero!"

Me: Mom, are you aware that 'te quiero' means 'I want you'?
Mom: Really? I thought 'te quiero' was 'I love you'.
Me: No, that would be 'te amo'.
Mom: OOPS.
Me: You're just lucky you sent that to me and not someone else.
Mom: Yeah. Yo no te quiero!
Me: Yo tampoco!

Then, she started saying random stuff in Spanish that I didn't completely catch because I was trying to watch Parenthood at the same time, but I thought I heard the word "infection."

Me: Did you say something about an infection?
Mom: No, I said 'te amo' is a sign of AFFECTION.
Me: Ohhhhhhhh. That makes so much more sense!

Ensue almost delirious giggling.

We are an impeccable team, I tell ya.


Also, quick note: My amazing friend Jess is giving away Meredith Andrews' latest CD. If you love Christian worship music, go enter the giveaway here!

  1. Haha I'm glad you and your mom text too! My mom and I text and my friends think that's so weird! Although my mom can't quite get the hang of the "space" button, so her texts either look like this....hi.laura.how.are.you.doing.call.me.when.you.can.

    or like this...


    Hahaha, I've gotten good at deciphering though.
