Happy birthday, Daddy!

11 Sep

L: Will Daddy’s cake have frosting dots or flowers on it?
M: No, silly, Mommy is making it.
L: I know! We could put animal crackers on it.
M: Yeah, we could put them in the shape of beer. We know he likes that!


At least she knows

M: Do you think the smart girl needs a spanking for sharing all her stupid facts?

Me: M!

M: (whispered as an aside) No, it is just a play I am making, Mommy. I really think facts are awesome, but I have to pretend to be stupid and only care about my beauty so my character can be in a movie and probably get a boyfriend.

Me: But you knowM: (interrupting)Yes mom. I know.


We all have a white whale.

M: Mom, why did God make the Devil? And Moby Dick?


Grammar matters

10 Jul

Me: L, what do you want for your birthday cake?

L: Abe Lincoln riding a bear with an assault rifle. Or a bear riding a shark.

Me: Do you want the bear to have the assault rifle or do you mean you want Lincoln to have it?

L: I don’t know. Whatever works


So, I am pretty sure L got the suggestion for the Lincoln/rifle/bear combo from his dad. I know the bear riding a shark is from L because those are his two favorite things. I don’t yet know what his cake will be, but I promise there will be pictures. 

I did find this awesome picture from SharpWriter on deviantART:

Next he might tackle dibision

9 Jul

Me: L, your birthday is three weeks from today!

L: 21 days?

Me: (Excited because Obviously my 5 year old is a math genius) How did you know that? When did you learn multiplication?

L: Yesterday it was 22 days. What is multiplitation?

L: M! I found a LIVE BUG in our bathroom. It is not a spider.

M: What is it? A roach? A roly poly? A water bug?

L: I don’t know what it is. Come get it. /shudders

M: /sigh. Let me get a cup and plate. 

L: Why don’t you kill it?

M: /glares at L, gets bug, and takes it out side.

L: I would have killed it.

M: Yeah right. You can’t get close to a bug without a freakout. Asides, killing bugs is childish; Just put them back in their habitat.

L: /shudders. Bugs are so gross.







A ghost story

27 May

In an attempt not to go a month between posts, I decided to show you an old video of M telling a ghost story. She is about 3 1/2 in this video. Please ignore the messy messy bedroom. We were in the process of moving and things were a wreck!
