Tidbits and Conversations

Tidbit # 1: 

Most people do a load of whites when doing laundry. 

Not me. 

I do a LARGE load of pinks.

pink laundry


Conversation #1:

Grandma:  “Lallie, why don’t we play something different, you’ve been playing with puzzles all day.”

Lallie:  “Yeah, I’ve been a little infatuated with them.”

Hello….she’s 3 1/2 years old.  Where did she learn that word and more importantly, to put it into context?  (I must boast here).  She’s so smart! 


Conversation #2:

Lallie (to Daddy):   “Open them!”  (very agitated)

Daddy:  “Open what?”

Lallie:  “Open them!”  (now yelling)

Daddy:  “Open what honey?”

Lallie:  “Yours eyes Daddy.  Open them! …….. Now keep them open!!”

Daddy:  “I can’t honey, I have to blink.”

Commence – temper tantrum

Note:  I tried to find a picture of cute pink eyes, but when typed in “pink eye pictures” and not really thinking what I would get…well, I decided not put up a picture of pink eyes.  You can thank me later.


Tidbit #2: (a funny from an email forwarded to me): 

The first “manly area” guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874
      and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100   
      years for men to realize that their brain is also important.


Conversation #3:


Lallie:  “Where’s Mr. Bunny?”

Daddy:  “Daddy had to have a talk with Mr. Bunny.  He’s been eating all our vegetables and so I told Mr. Bunny that he had to go away, so he’s no longer here, he’s gone.”

Lallie thinking.

Lallie:  “Daddy, did you make Mr. Bunny dead?”

End conversation.


Tidbit #3: 

I just now realized, after wearing it for 4 hours, that my Lilly Pulitzer hotty pink Lana shirt is on backwards.  (Yes, just now, as in while I’ve been typing this post.) 



Conversation #4:

Lallie:  “Guess what, the calepitters turned into butterflies today.”

Daddy:  “Really, how?”

Lallie:  “They go from ladybugs, to calepitters, to cocoon to butterfly and when that happens.”

NOTE:  Yes, she says cal-e-pit-ter….say it, it’s awfully cute.


Conversation #5:

Setting:  Christmas Eve.  Daddy tells the story of Santa Claus to Lallie, how he comes down the chimney, eats cookies…yada yada yada.  After he’s done telling the story.

Lallie:  “Daddy, hurry, we have to go upstairs and go to bed.  It’s dark out, Santa will be mad!”

Daddy:  “Okay, how many books do you want to read?”

Lallie:  “Three books.  No one book.  No one page.

Daddy:  “Just one page?”

Lallie:  “Okay, one book.”  Daddy then reads the book.  “Read faster.”

Lallie:  “Okay daddy.  Get out, get out now!  I have to go to sleep.  Santa’s coming, he’s gonna be mad, get out daddy, now, get out,  You’ve gotta go.  Daddy, why are you still here?  Get out!!”

Lallie:  Last thing before Daddy leaves, very concerned.  “Daddy, where is he going to put the presents, the tree is already full?” 

Ah kids……


Happy Thursday Y’all!


  1. Loved the "Lallie" conversations.

    I can't tell you how much I miss those days. I can still see my son running down the hall in his skin tight jammies Christmas Eve night yelling, "Santa's coming, Santa's coming." He jumped in bed, grabbed his blanket, put his thumb in his mouth, and closed his eyes. Miss those days like crazy!

    The hockey tidbit is too, too funny. Sad to say, very true! LOL!

    Happy Thursday.

    Have you turned your shirt around??? Hehehe..

  2. Kids are so adorable especially your daughter! The whole world is looked at with a wide eyed sense of wonder and they have this knack for putting things is such a way that we adults are just in awe of them...

  3. This is hilarious. I love conversations from little kids. And I'm loving the pink laundry room.

  4. That pink laundry room is crazy-awesome!
    And those conversations sound quite familiar ... :-)

  5. the Christmas eve conversation is to cute!!!
    Have a good weekend sweetie

  6. Adorable! I am impressed with her use of the word infatuated.

  7. Gotta just love that Lallie girl. I can totally see her saying these things too.
    A "load of pinks"...sounds like my kind of laundry. I'd be happy to do a load of pinks.

  8. Oh wait...I remember doing a "load of whites" that came out a "load of pinks" after I missed the brand new "lone red scarf". That did not make me happy.
