Over-fruiting…bears fruit

Over-fruiting…bears fruit

So…remember the word of the day?

Over-fruiting!

Baby girl said: “Mommy, you should make a t-shirt with my word!”

…and so I did!

Well…Teespring.com will make it; I just designed it. But Baby girl likes it and so I present to you…

The ‘Over-fruiting’ tee!

Teespring.com/Over-fruiting 

5 am

Baby Girl: “Mommy! ”

Me: “Yes.”

Baby Girl: “Can you come here? ”

Me:”Why?” (Did I mention it was 5am?)

Baby Girl:”I’m cold”

Me:”So pull your blanket up over your legs.”

(She likes to kick it off before she falls asleep…and it is Summer after all)

Baby Girl:”But I don’t wanna get up!”

Me:”Neither do I! ”

Yes…this is my life.

Baby Girl Needs a Nap!

Baby Girl Needs a Nap!

One day last week…

We’d just gotten home after I picked her and her sister up from school and daycare. Baby Girl was a bit grumpy because apparently she didn’t have a very good nap at ‘nap time’.

Well, we all went upstairs to wash our hands and change out of the clothes we’d been in all day and Baby Girl was just cranky!

After washing her hands, she started to give me the ‘talk’.

“Mommy, you forgot to roll up my sleeves and I asked you 2 times!”

Okay…but you know how to roll up your sleeves, child…

“…and then you put soap on my boo-boo and now it’s hurting!”

Did you tell me you have a boo-boo?

“Bend down Mommy, bend down…”

She proceeds to tug on the front of my shirt to indicate that I really, really needed to bend down.

So I did and so did Diva Girl…

“Do you see this boo-boo right here?” The child proceeded to show me a red dot on her thumb so small that I’m sure I would have missed it had I not had on my glasses.

Now I just want you to take a moment to picture my soon to be 4 year old speaking to me as if I may be a bit senile (no comments please) as she pointed out the offensive looking (but very miniscule) injury on her cute little thumb.

Sigh with me please….SIGH

Diva Girl decides to chime in at this point… “Oh I see it Mommy!”

Ummm… thanks, your 2 cents has really contributed to diffusing the situation.

Two minutes later, after promising to find a band-aid that would cover that boo-boo; she has turned on her big sister and was giving her attitude equipped with vigorous finger pointing, neck snapping energy. I think the Diva was a little nervous…

Needless to say, the rest of the evening was quite interesting until we all went to bed!

THINGS MY KIDS SAY…

THINGS MY KIDS SAY…

Diva girl – when she knows she’s pushed my ‘last button’: “Mom, you’re so cute!”

Baby girl – when she finds something funny; she laughs and then: “Oh Gosh!”

Diva girl – “Mommy, when I tell you this joke…laugh okay?”

Diva girl – “Awesome!” and “That’s what I’m talking about!”

Baby girl – “Poppicle” means popsicle; “Yummy tummy” means something tastes good

Baby girl – when it’s time to comb her hair, she points to her sister and tells me it’s her turn

Diva girl – on the topic of more siblings (in my mind I’m screaming Hell No!): “You mean there’s only going to be two of us?!”

Did I mention yet again, that Diva girl is five and Baby girl is two? Okay, just checking.

They both know the chorus of (and I’m not proud): “I’m Sexy and I Know it” Sigh…I finally gave in and have the Little People’s Children’s Songs CD on repeat in my car. Don’t judge me.

When Baby girl is about to do something she’s not supposed to, she looks at me and nods her head; to which I shake my head no, and in response, she nods and laughs and proceeds to go ahead and do exactly what she’s not supposed to!

When I take something away from Baby girl that she shouldn’t be playing with, she’ll say: “No Mama, I Need it!” which usually sounds like “….I NEEN it!” I love toddler language.

Diva girl to her Nana – “Nana, you’re old like a dinosaur!” and just for the record, I’ve been fortunate enough to have the distinction of not being that old!

I’m touched….
