|bebe's surprise face|
When she was just starting to talk, I wrote down in her baby journal some of the things she said...and I shared a few too many on Facebook. When she started school, I stopped always writing down the things she said, but last Monday at breakfast she had me just about in tears (there was commentary about a change in the packaging of her Froot Loops. She was not amused), and I decided to follow her around for a week to tell you guys what she said. Here goes:
bebe on Froot Loops: Hey, they added marshmallows! The one thing this cereal was missing was another 10 grams of sugar. (I had no idea she even knew what a gram was)
bebe on the new smart thermostat: This thing makes a great nightlight! Now when I get up to pee in the middle of the night, I don't have to turn on an actual light. *gives me the side eye* You don't think it's smart enough to watch me pee do you? Because if I have to shut the door, I'm going to need to turn on that actual light.
bebe on recycling: *dumps eleventy-billion old ziplocs on my desk* Here, Mom, all you have to do is wash them out and I can reuse them. I'm a recycler! Me, eyeing a bag with questionable stains: I think maybe we can just get new ones. bebe: No! I saved those specially for you. Because I know you like to clean things! (I don't. And I'm not sure where she ever got that idea...but eleventy-billion cleaned bags later....)
bebe on boots: *singing 'These Boots Are Made For Walking', she first heard it via Just Dance* Boots are the best type of shoe for a girl, but that girl is not nice to walk on some guy in her boots. Boots hurt.
bebe on pets: I've decided I need an Barn Owl, Mom. Barn Owls are the best. Me: *side eye* bebe: Seriously, because Screech Owls are too screechy and Horned Owls are too horned-y, and Elf Owls are just weird looking and not elf-y at all. Plus, if we had a Barn Owl, we could call it Barn-y.
bebe on bed time: How about this, we'll stare-down for it. If I blink first, I get 10 more minutes. If you blink first, I get fifteen. *puts on sunglasses* And, go!
bebe on football: *pondering the game RadioMan is watching* You know, I'd like to say I like football...but mostly, I just endure it. Today, the enduring is hard. We should build LEGOs.
Okay, readers, share something silly your kiddo (or grand-kiddo) said this week (or, heck, this month)!
