Her Tell-All Memoir

The Tongginator brought home another book yesterday. I thought y'all might appreciate it.


My family is sweet. My family is funny. My family is nice. My family is great and kind. My family does their best. My family is fun. They love me.

My family is old.

They are kind, too.

My family will soon have a little baby sister. My family has three people, but will soon have my little sister who counts. Soon my family will be in love with my little sister.

My family is pretty. My family is sweet. My family is great. My family does their best!

I learned a few new things yesterday after reading the Tongginator's tell-all memoir. First off, her little sister counts. And second? I am OLD.

Who knew?!?!

Would she be counting in English or Mandarin? One, two, three.

My son once wrote my Mother's Day card, "My mom is nice. She likes to eat and sleep." Even if it is true, did he have to tell his teacher?

I think your family is kind, sweet, and funny. I don't know about pretty, but I'll take her word for it.

Have a happy Tuesday.

Hahahaha Those were the two things that stood out to me, too! Her little sister counts and her family is OLD.

Rest easy, TM. I know I'm older than you. People ask if I'm Olivia's grandmother all the time, especially if I have Sarah with me. She's my oldest, at 23.

Have a good day today!

Debbie said...

That "old" part really jumped out at me too. Maybe because lately I have been feeling so old!

thewonderfulhappens said...

Well, she said her FAMILY was old. Maybe she means "established"....:)

sara said...

My family is old...HA! Apparently you do your best as well. Enough that it was mentioned twice. Holy cow that cracked me up!!

Sarah said...

At least she said old and kind. It could have been my family is old, and cranky....

prechrswife said...

That's too cute! Love it!

Aus said...

I love that child - but if you are old then I am ancient! ;)

hugs - aus and co.

Laurie said...

That's a saver!!! Our family is older than your family, so her calling YOU old kind of hurt! :)

autumnesf said...

Well, I'm just so impressed on how all of ya'll do your best.

Briana's Mom said...

That is cute stuff! I'm so glad she said her little sister was going to count. I was worried for a minute there. ;)

Wendy said...

I think she means your family is old in the sense that you are comfortable together and, in her mind, she can't imagine life without you. And her sister? Well, she's going to matter in The Tongginator's heart a whole lot.

LaLa said...

Just keep doing your best and I think you all are already in love with Mei Mei : )

LaLa said...

Oh, and YAY on finally seeing what she looks like!

I found out in our community group Sunday that we were in our mid 40's. Somehow, I vaulted right past early 40's by being married to someone who was 46. LOL. And, for what it's worth, old is such a relative term. Miss T probably thinks 20 is old. My husband thinks 46 is old. I WORK with old people, and I'm pretty sure 46 isn't even the beginning of old...

Keating Mom said...

Precious!! I love how you all do your best :)

The Source said...

At least you're funny and you're doing your best!

Football and Fried Rice said...

Dont forget you're sweet :-)

Does she mean mei mei counts as in she's important or counts as in she knows her numbers? lol

:)

The Byrd's Nest said...

lol...I love it! I love how she said, "My family does their best" awwwwww:)

Asianmommy said...

Haha! I remember a time when I used to think that 16 was "old." I think that's where the Tongginator is right now.

Sharie said...

Well, you're the same age as me, a little younger actually and this morning Amelia informed me that I'm not really that old.

Amelia did her family book at the end of last year. Her family photo was a picture of her family in China...Mom, Dad, Grandma, brother, and sisters. There was a great picture of her and I playing Wii though;)

Wanda said...

Bwha ha ha. It's all relative. Dahlia still thinks I'm 21. No, really! Anything over 8 is old.

Love live the myth!

Jean said...

Well, I'm sure I could beat you in the old category!

BTW- old = fun!! It's like a math problem!
Okay, too old = not fun

Excited for the younger sister! Love the simple insights of a child into their family!

You are also sweet and pretty- what more do you want!!

Annie said...

Yeah, but you are also pretty and great and nice and fun and you do your best!!!!! I'ld take it!!! Hehe!

Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...

Haha!! She is too cute!! I can't wait to see how she will describe her new family of four. It is going to be an exciting year for the Tonggu Family~

Happy Chinese New Year~

xoxo,

Lisa

PS..... Love Anna

So stinkin' cute! My daughter wrote last year that I was a great cooker, only she didn't spell it that way...take out the second O and replace it with a C.
