Plans for World Domination

Doesn’t every 11 year old have a plan for world domination? Here’s Jessica’s:

  1. Become the head of a major corporation
  2. Become president of the US
  3. Get a large army
  4. Work on charisma skills
  5. Amass several hundred quintillion dollars
  6. Conquer, persuade, or buy every country on earth

Sounds like a sound plan to me. Maybe if I’d had the forethought to make a plan when I was 11, I would have taken over the world by now. And it would be a sparklier and prettier place.

In the interests of keeping my new year’s resolution to spend more time with family and friends, Megan and I are heading out to visit the Dynamic Duo in their native habitat this afternoon. While we’re doing that, I’ll leave you with some conversations Erica has posted recently on Facebook. Enjoy!

Erica: I shouldn’t be doing this.
Jessica: So when has that ever stopped you?

Jessica: Mom, you’re too cool to be from here.
Erica: Well, I have travelled a lot.
Jessica: No, I mean from Earth.

Jessica: So what exactly are aristocratic features?
Erica: Inbred white people.

Jessica: Why is it the sacred duty of all parents to be so annoying?
Erica: Why are all children so annoying?
Jessica: We can’t help it!
Erica: (bursting into laughter)

I think my favorite was when Erica posted that she “totally busted Jessica using her iPad as a flashlight to read a book.” A girl after my own heart – and I’m a girl who used to read under the covers, too.

A YEAR AGO: Recovering from the flu with kitten aid.

    The body of a child, the mind of an adult this one, she is cool, and Jessica, never stop dreaming, that’s what keeps us all alert and wanting to improve ourselves. Without dreams nothing goes forward.

  2. Work on charisma skills? Gotta love it!

    I definitely need to work on mine. 🙂

    You’ve got to love this 11 year old – hard to believe she is only that age! Just amazing. She must really keep Erica on her toes.
    I also used to read under the bedcovers – but used an old-fashioned ‘torch’. This brought back all sorts of memories…
    Love your Blog Suzy…thanks
