Outta the Mouths of Babes: Another Annelie Edition

My kiddo, cracking me up as usual. Here are some bits and pieces of our life.

---------------------------------------

ANNELIE: Mommy, know what? When I grow up, I want to be a TEENAGER!

---------------------------------------

WILL [to Annelie]: You're so cute. Did you know that?

ANNELIE: Yeah. I know everything. [pauses] Well, I know everything except how to turn on the stove.

---------------------------------------

ANNELIE [at pediatricians office]: Hi! I'm Annelie. And this [gestures at me] is Daddy's wife.

(she went on to introduce me like this several times)

---------------------------------------

ANNELIE [pointing at a picture of me from when I was in 5th grade]: Is this a picture of me when I'm all growned up?

---------------------------------------

ME [listening to Annelie humming]: That's a nice song.

ANNELIE: Thanks. Did you know I was humming in Spanish?

---------------------------------------

ANNELIE [pointing at our phone]: Florence and the Answering Machine has an answering machine just like us.

---------------------------------------

ME: Hey, what's that white stuff on your face.

ANNELIE: Oh, that's just white stuff. It isn't frosting at all.

---------------------------------------

After overhearing Gracie call Annelie a mean name.

Annelie: Don't call me names. [clap clap] Don't call me names. [clap clap]*


*sung to the tune of That's Not My Name by The Ting Tings

---------------------------------------

ANNELIE [picking petals off a flower]: He loves me. He loves me more. He loves me. He loves me more.

---------------------------------------

ANNELIE: Mommy, is it Happy 8th Day, again?

ME: What is that?

ANNELIE: You know. That day where we joke around.
---------------------------------------

ANNELIE: Can I have a banana?

ME: Sure.

ANNELIE: That's good. Because I already opened one.

(not going to lie - glad this conversation didn't begin with "Can I get my tongue pierced?"

---------------------------------------

Okay, that's all!

Hope you all have a great weekend, folks!

xoxo,

I adore your daughters!!!
These had me cracking up! Every single one.
The frosting one reminds me of my oldest son when he was 3. He'd yell, "Mom, don't go by me, okay?" when he was doing something he shouldn't have been!

Kelly Polark said...

I had to reread to giggle more. My two faves are the humming in Spanish and the He loves Me. He loves me more. Everyone should have that positive outlook!

You seriously need to compile a book of these. They are hilarious!

These are too funny! My son (7yrs old) told me today that he knows why God make people fly. So that the bad people couldn't fly up to Heaven and slay Him.

He thought for a moment, and then said, "It's okay that birds can fly because they are too dumb to fly to heaven."

Meeling said...

Omg...I LOVE these!! Just what I needed to get me through the rest of Friday afternoon. :-D
