I remember doing things like that- it seemed so important, noble and world changing- for the first 1/2 hour anyways...
She and her friend may have a fun time with trying not to speak. Just watch and see how it plays out.
That is gonna be an interesting playdate. :)
Revel in the quiet... I give her maybe until noon... After all she is your daughter...LOL
That's too funny! She'll probably really regret that vow when her friend comes over :-)
This should be interesting, you would never have been able to do it. The most frequent comment from your teachers was she is a great student but she talks to much!!! MOM
Uh, yeah. Thanks for that Mom. See what kind of trouble you get into when you give your Mom your blog address? ;)
Wow. I applaud her for her reason for not speaking.You ought to supply her and her friend with paper and pencils to write each other instead of speaking to each other....But I don't think she'll make it very long, just because she might forget.I would keel over if my girls did something like that!
WOW great thoughtful reason & girl, I'd definitely take advantage of that!!!!
I love your blog.This post hit right at home... I am curious to see if she can really do it.I want to homeschool my children.Keep blogging great things. I love to read it!
Loved your mom's comments. What a great experiment! can't wait to hear how it turned out!
ROFLOL!!!I used to give people the silent treatment when I got mad at them, in my mind I was punishing them, but somehow I always felt like the one who was being punished. But I was stubborn, and no matter how ridiculous I realized I was being, I could never give in. Sigh. Not nearly as noble as your dear daughter. I envision a written modification tomorrow, "due to circumstances beyond my control which were not enumerated by the party of the second part (my mom) prior to the transcription of this pledge, I hereby declare the party of the first part (myself) to be free from all previously enumerated consequences and suspend any previously stated vows until such a date when the party of the third part (my friend) would no longer be adversely affected."I'm such a nerd.
i wish my son would try that.
You will have to let us know how long she lasts!
Hilarious!! And lasting 11 hours - nine while sleeping - is even better! Nevertheless, applause for her creativity and willingness to learn!
