Outta the Mouths of Babes.8

ANNELIE [points at alphabet above the bug's head] In my picture, my bug is thinking about the alphabet. But sometimes he makes a mistake and thinks of the wrong letter, so he thinks about an X, and then thinks about the right letter.

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

At back door - cat outside, waiting to come inside from the rain.

ANNELIE [face pressed against the glass door, talking to cat]: Say the magic word, first.

[waits]

That wasn't it. It's two meows.

ME: JUST LET THE CAT IN!

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

In the kitchen

ANNELIE [holding recorder]: When I blow my recorder, that means hurry up. [blows recorder]

ME: How about when you blow the recorder, it means thank you for my snack, Mom!

ANNELIE [thinks for a sec.] No, it just means hurry up. [blows recorder]

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

ANNELIE [waves wooden stick over my head]: This is my magic wand. You get to make a wish and my wand will make it come true, so what's your wish?

ME: I want to be a magical fairy princess.

ANNELIE [looks at stick, brows furrowed. Shakes stick]: Hold on. I need to plug in my magic wand and recharge the batteries. I'll be right back.

[runs off with stick]

ME: ....?

ANNELIE: Okay. I'm back. [shakes stick over my head] Now, what is it you want?

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

GRACIE [holding picture of an angel]: Look, I drew an angel. I even put that thing over her head. I don't know what it's called, so I call it the I Don't Know.

ME: It's called a halo.

GRACIE [excitedly] Oh! So now I know! Instead of calling it the I Don't Know, now I can call it the I Do Know!

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

Okay, that's all the fun for today. Have an excellent Friday, folks!

xoxo,

Ahhh so precious! I love these posts. I also love how she draws lips on her bug haha!

Last week I gave Carly an english muffin and she asked what it was called. When I told her they were called english muffins, her eyes got huge, and she asked, "Will they make us talk like Pride and Prejudice when they go into our mouths??!"
Seriously where does she get the connection between english MUFFINS and english ACCENTS?!"

Hahaha, Melissa, that is so cute. And she's a rock star for knowing P&P!!!

The other day we were at the park and a little boy heard my hubs talking (English accent) and he said, "Why are you talking ENGLISH when you're from TEXAS"

hahaha. Kids are too funny.

"Outta the Mouths of Babes" have got to be some of my favorite things to read... I enjoy reading about the super adorable things your little one has to say. She reminds me of my own little monkeys!

THESE POSTS ARE SO FUNNY!

I think you should compile them into a book. LOL.

mshatch said...

I agree with Heather - these are funny enough to be in a book - especially if you drew some of the pictures :)

Marisa Hopkins said...
