Telephone Etiquette

As I was driving home yesterday, I called the house. The conversation goes like this:
Diva: Hello
Well hey baby, what’s Momma’s girl doing?
Diva:I am not taking off my shoes, that’s what.
Me: Ok... well that’s good, where is Daddy?
Diva: Umm he is around
Me: Ok can I talk to him?
Diva: Umm yeah, stay right here (ok where am I going to go?)
Me: Ok lovie. Now I hear her run through the house, she comes back and picks up the phone
Diva: It will be a few minutes… lets have some on hold music--- The itsy bisty spider climbed up the waterspout, down cam the rain… (she sings me the entire song)

Finally Kevin gets the phone before she can launch good into I’m a little teapot… which I must add is really cute when she sings it… but I digress.

Back to my Diva’s phone etiquette or lack there of, she is only 6 so I thought it was not too terribly bad. So we will have to work on this along with about a million other things.


  1. It could be worse. She could have sung "Badonk-a-Donk" which we KNOW she knows the words to.

  2. That or the Breakfast song. Great, now it is my head to stay for the night. Dammit! lol

  3. Oh, I was never allowed to say my parents weren't home. (This was when I was like 10 and allowed home by myself for like 5 seconds while my mom ran across the street.) So, my dad called and I figured I wasn't allowed to tell ANYONE I was home alone so I say my mom is going to the bathroom. So, when he called back like 10 minutes later, let's just say Mom had the worst stomach bug known to man. Later, I was told to just say she couldn't come to the phone versus telling the doctor this made up story involving the toilet.

    I love the hold music though. Genius!
