Tidbit # 1:
Most people do a load of whites when doing laundry.
I do a LARGE load of pinks.
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!
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.
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: “Daddy, did you make Mr. Bunny dead?”
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.)
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.
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?”
Happy Thursday Y’all!
