I’ve been a pathetic blogger as of late. Sigh. I miss it. But at least I’ve jotted down a few funnies from the girls over the past few weeks. Behold!
The girls were working on their thank-you cards from Christmas. Some family friends gave them little packages of erasers. Baby A was part-way through her sentence when I peered over her shoulder. She was poised to write, “…we can’t wait to erase something.” Hahaha! I encouraged her to alter her message to, “…we can’t wait to see you again.” I thought that seemed a little more feasible.
Hubby was home with the girls one day over the holiday break. He has cackled about this so many times now. Baby B had been in the bathroom for quite some time. He went to check on her, and she said she was fine, just taking care of some “business”. When she finally came out, he said she started belting out the national anthem, like it was her job. Hee hee! Let the games begin!
Hubby stuck around the house one morning to help me wake up the girls. They were THRILLED to see him early in the morning. He went to give kisses to Baby A, and she squealed. “You tickled me! With your spikes!” referring to his stubble. That’s what he gets for not being clean-shaven!
Hubby has also encouraged the girls – Baby B, in particular – to “talk boonie”. And B is really far too good at it. It is hysterical how naturally she goes into an exaggerated Southern lilt…but it makes this mama with her practiced neutral accent cringe just a bit.
B has been growing her bangs out, and I've been experimenting with different braids. "You're better at this than I thought," she told me one morning. Nothing like a back-handed compliment from a first grader!
B asked me one Saturday morning, “Did you take a shower, Mommy?" Yes, I told her. "I smell you." I think it was intended as a compliment???
And Hubby took the girls out to lunch one day. He said that Baby A kept looking at a man sitting behind him. He asked her, and she said, “It’s the Beatles.” Upon further investigation, she mistook a man in a restaurant who had long hair as one of the Beatles. HA!
The girls have been reading like machines here lately, and they’re often quizzing us on different facts. They are quite incredulous when we don’t know something. “…but you went to college!” HA!
These girlies keep us guessing, for sure!!!
