Outta the Mouths of Babes.9


I've had these little bits saved up for awhile - a handful of things heard around Chez Hopkins.

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

ME [calling to Gracie in the other room]: Can you turn off the light?

ANNELIE [walking in from outside]: WHAT?! NO!

[pauses]

Oh, you meant can Gracie turn off the light. I thought you meant me, but my light is the sun, and I can't turn that off!!!

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

GRACIE [watching Will put on his suit jacket before a meeting]: You look really handsome. You look like you’re going to a mineral.

WILL: A mineral?

GRACIE: Isn’t that was you call the party when you celebrate dead people?

WILL: A funeral?

GRACIE: Yeah, you look handsome, like you’re going to a funeral.

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

ANNELIE [coloring beside me]: Do you like my little girl? She has grey hair.

ME [looking at Annelie's picture of a small child]: Your little girl is very cute. I'm curious about why you gave her grey hair.

ANNELIE: She has grey hair because she was from a long, long time ago.

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

GRACIE: Mom, did you get a hair cut?

ME: No.

GRACIE: Oh. I thought you did. Because of [gestures vaguely at my head] that thing.

ME: ...... what thing?

GRACIE: That..... right there.

ME: My bangs?

GRACIE: Yeah.

ME: I trimmed them ...... [officially paranoid] Is there something wrong with them?

GRACIE [long pause]: No..... They look fine.

ME: .....

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

ME [to Annelie]: Don't forget to turn off the TV!

ANNELIE: I won't. I don't forget anything. I don't even forget that one plus one is two.

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

ME [reading emails]: Boo, I just got another rejection.

ANNELIE [patting my back]: Well, that's not bad. I just got FORTY rejections.
-------------------------------------------

ANNELIE [picking up drawing paper and a pen]: I'm going to draw myself a present, but I have to close my eyes the whole time because presents are a secret. 

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

ANNELIE [teaching Gracie how to sing]: Just repeat after me. [sings] Do... Re... You... La... So... No... Me... How..!

GRACIE: Do... Re... You... La... So... No... Me... How..!


(I think another viewing of The Sound of Music is in our near future!)

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

That's all the fun for tonight, folks! Happy Monday!

xoxo,

You know I LOVE all your posts. But the quotes from the Hopkins girls are always my favorites! They so give me flashbacks, though. Like when I picked my girls up after a weekend visit to their dad's. And I said, "Did you have fun with Daddy this weekend?" And my youngest says, "Yes! We went to Granny's party!" And I said, "Oh, there was a party for Granny? How nice. How come? It's not her birthday yet." And she says, "You know...the party they give for you when you die." Yup. That's how I found out my mother-in-law had passed away. :(
