Wanda Knows - When the tough get going

Episode 26 -When the tough get going

The background: Wanda is staying at our house (Good times!) She was sitting in our office talking to me and out of the blue she said

Wanda: "I get it! When the tough get going, the going gets tough!"

Celeste: "Uh wand, I think its, when the going-"

Wanda: Interrupting "No! I get it! It's when the tough get going the going gets tough! You know like when the big tough warrior guys get going, you know like moving, the going (she emphasised this word and looked at me like I should be making a great mental connection at this point) gets tough!"

Celeste: Silently laughing, pulling up my blog as fast as I can, and trying not to let the grin show on my face, and hoping she doesn't notice what I'm doing!

Wanda: Blissfully unaware, left the room

Reaction when she finds out she's wrong.... to be continued

Wanda Knows: Snakes

Episode 25 - Wanda Knows Snakes

I have to apologize for my terrible neglect of the Wanda knows series. Although I have not posted them it does not mean that they are not alive and well. :) On the way home from the farm this happened and re-inspired me to post some of the ones that I've been trying to remember! enjoy.

The Background: Driving home from the farm in Nevada Wanda was explaining how she thought she had not done anything that at least one of her brothers or sisters had done, but then she realized that she was wrong. She had once gone to the house of a boy who had been featured in the news for having more than 100 animals in his back yard. 

Wanda: "This guy had lots of animals but the only ones that he left out for us to pet were the Boa Constructor and the alligator because the others were too dangerous."

K.C.: "Wait a minute, did you say Boa Constructor?"

Wanda: "Yes, Boa Constructor. You know, it's a big snake."
