An Email From My RS President


So…I came to your house for the meeting.  It went something like this:

The Pea (answering the door):  She’s taking a nap.

Me:  Oh, I’m sorry, do you know if your mom is having a meeting later?

The Princess (coming from behind The Pea):  Oh yes, she’s having a meeting, come on in.

Me:  The meeting is here, right?

The Princess:  Oh yes, please have a seat.

The Princess then proceeds to turn off the TV and shoo The Pea to the other room.


The Princess:  Let me just clean up this room.

She then appears with a vacuum (bigger than her, mind you) and meticulously vacuums the living room.

Me:  Are you sure your mom is expecting me?

The Princess:  Oh yes, she just needs to get my baby brother to sleep.  Can I get you anything to drink?

Me:  No thank you, I’m fine.

She then sits down and we have a chat about Halloween costumes, Hannah Montana, and her new school vs. old school.

At this time I am getting concerned that no one else has shown up for the meeting, including the hostess.

Me:  The Princess, do you think that I came at the wrong time?  Is it possible that the meeting is some other place or time?

The Princess:  Oh no!  The meeting is here.  Do you know how many other ladies are coming?

Me:  I think just three of us, plus your mom.  Is your mom coming?

The Princess:  Oh yes.

More chatting about Hannah Montana, High School Musical, and inappropriate pictures being sent over the internet (not of The Princess, by the way).

Me:  Princess, I think I better go home and check to see if I have the right time and place. Maybe the meeting has been cancelled.

The Princess:  I’m sure there is a meeting today.

Me:  Well, I’m just going to go and make sure.  Thanks for being such a wonderful hostess. Please tell your mother I stopped by.

The Princess then escorts me to the door and thanks me for coming by.

    Oh my gosh. What a dear, funny, clever, sophisticated girl. Love it.

    But, uh, what about the meeting, sleepyhead . . . ?

    How old is your daughter, that is. Not your RS president. Although, if you know how old your RS President is, you can share that too.

    That is seriously funny. I’d love to see your response to her email.

    (BTW, Your daughter has the hostess gig down.)

    The Princess is 8 (I believe the RS pres is in her early 50s). And she is a crack up on occasion. I was putting the Infantile Delinquent down for a nap and he won’t sleep unless there’s someone lying there with him. I knew I’d fall asleep and I told the princess and the Pea to come wake me up when the ladies got there. It turns out the Princess was going to let me sleep until all the ladies got there. So considerate.

    That is a crack up! Man kids do some crazy “considerate” stuff.

    This is priceless. She sounds so elegant and sophisticated for 8.

    yep, I’m curious why no one else showed up, too.

    You know, “The Princess is an angel!”

    Two of the ladies who were supposed to come had begged off before we left church so there was only one more expected. The Princess and the Pea came and woke me up when she got here at about 2:30 (the meeting was supposed to start at 2:00). We didn’t really bother trying to get anything done. We’re going to try again next Sunday.

    That’s funny. I don’t know if I’m more impressed with your daughter or your RS president.

    Do you think she’d like to vacuum my living room? What a riot! I can’t imagine my boys being so conscientious.

    Or vacuuming.

    I love the e-mail with the full transcripts. Awesome.

    Glad you got a quick nap in at least.

    You are obviously a very good mom to have raised such al lovely hostess.
    I’m very jealous of your nap. I haven’t had one of those in years.

    Just to set the record straight. This RSP is no where near 50. And a crack up on EVERY occasion! (althought I have had to tone it down since a certain calling made me more visible) Seriously! (Humph!)
