Outta the Mouths of Babes.10

Mid-November already?

How 'bout a little round up of the things my kids say that crack me up?

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

WILL: Mommy made you a sandwich and she made it with extra sprinkles of love

ANNELIE: No, actually, that's just lettuce.

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

Gracie, on handling bullies.

If someone called me stupid, I'd say, "Come over to my house." But before they came, I'd glue their picture in my dictionary next to the word stupid, and then when they came over, I'd say, "Come look at my dictionary." And when they looked, I'd say, "TA-DA!"

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

At dinner

ME: Let's talk about what we're thankful for, and pick something that can't be bought at a store.

ANNELIE: I'm thankful for the people who work at the stores and make sure that the stuff I want is at the stores.

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

ANNELIE: I'm going to invite Jason, a boy in my class, to my birthday party. Wanna know why? Because he always smiles at me when I walk past him. And when  he comes, I'm going to explain all the rules to him.

ME: Rules like No dating until you're sixteen?

ANNELIE: Yeah, that one. And also no snatching things away from people, and always share.

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

ME [unscrews Gracie's light switch plate, removes, puts on new light switch plate]: ...

GRACIE: Oh WOW, Mom! You should be a builder or something!

ME: ... are you kidding?

GRACIE: No, I'm not. I think you're AMAZING!

(Yes, it is THAT easy to be amazing, folks.)

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

GRACIE: Mom, my school picture turned out GREAT!

ME: Did you get to see it?

GRACIE: No.

ME: Then how do you know?

GRACIE [looks at me like I'm crazy]: Because I smiled my biggest smile and I looked adorable. 

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

ANNELIE [sniffs surrounding air, delighted]: Oooooh, I made it smell like sausages in here!!

ME [breathes surrounding air]: *dies*

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

Earlier -
Will put on a vanityfair.com interview with Christopher Hitchens, in which CH argues that women aren't funny.

Later -
at dinner

GRACIE [puts tiny dab of hot sauce in the center of her taco]: There.

WILL: That's really all you want?

GRACIE [shoots him a serious look]: That's all I can handle in this situation.

WILL laughs.

GRACIE [arches brow and smiles]: There. You laughed. Proof that women can be funny.


THAT'S MY GIRL.   


----------------------------------------------
That's all I've got for today!

Possibly even for the week.

Maybe even for the month - I've been taking a bit of an unplanned blog hiatus. Lately, I've been up to my ears with my NaNoWriMo project (which is already a good dozen or so thousand words behind my goal), my new job (which involves playing trucks and cars with a 3-year-old, and spoon-feeding fruit smoothies to his baby sister - and I'm so happy to be playing with the littlest-aged kiddos, again), and rearranging all the rooms and/or furniture in my house.

CHANGE IS GOOD. Exhausting, but good.

Hope you're all having a great November so far, folks!   

xoxo,

OMG! So funny I had to read my faves out loud to my SIL; but I was laughing too hard to get it out. Sausages! Lettuce! Women ARE funny. Love your girls so much!

On a side note, I don't think I can ever eat a sausage again.
