Just the other day we looked at butterflies on tv and i asked my daughter do you know where they come from, she said 'they come out of the racoon'.

Awesome. That is like backwards of what my son says, because he calls racoons cocoons!

HA! I turned and looked at Peter yesterday for about 2 seconds before he looked at me and said "I didn't say ANYTHING!"


Today he made me laugh because I realized that rather than "oh bother," he thinks Winnie the Pooh is saying "oh bollocks."

Yesterday, my kid corrected his dad for leaving "r" out of a word (my husband has a different accent than me, and different from the local one where we live). Never mind that Roger doesn't say "r" yet, grownups are supposed to say it!

Husband and I were both obnoxious kids who corrected people's speech, so we deserve it - just didn't expect it to start at three years old...

Me: sing a song of sixpence, pocket full of rye--

M (super serious): no! I cannot sing this song.

My 6yo: 'Mum, where do samosa's grow?'

Me: 'What makes you ask this?'

answers: 'because there are seeds in there'

"I've told you many times now (whatever it is he wants us to do)"

And

"I'm not going to discuss this any more!"

Are recent favourites. I think he's heard both at daycare, because his dad and I don't use those particular phrases.

The Emperor (4): I love every kind of food.
E: Like pizza, and candy...
Me: please keep listing.
E: Cake, cookies...

V does that. She'll look up and say "I *LIKE* cake/cookies/candy/gelato! I tried it! I liked it!" as though this were some sort of bold concession on her part. How magnanimous of you, kid!

Interaction from yesterday evening:
Me: OK, we need to go back upstairs now.
V: No I *NOT* go upstairs!
Me: But we have to go cook dinner! Daddy will be home soon!
V: No dinner!
Me: But what will we eat?
V: *thinks for a second* POPCORN!!

Of course, if I'd said that during the course of our living out of hotels "homelessness" we'd never resorted to microwave popcorn-based dinner, I'd be lying. So she kind of had a point, and it was kind of tempting to just make popcorn dinner instead of cooking, but I ended up making the Isa Does It summer seitan sautee (tasty!).


Also, we stopped for gelato after V's haircut yesterday (because it's impossible to walk through the navy exchange without stopping in at the ice cream shop) and a kid whose mom I've talked to on the playground a couple times came running up to me and said:

Kid: Are YOU the VITAMIX LADY?!?!?! (Vitamix was just at the exchange doing demos for a week or so)
Me: No, sorry. Do you need a smoothie sample?
Kid: YES!!

It feels like being mistaken for the most awesome celebrity. I mean, you guys, the VITAMIX LADY.

"do you need a smoothie sample"? (weirdest come-on ever)

a friend skyped me on wednesday to tell me that she had been in a store downtown and saw Baggy. She said
"I first overheard a boy talking about becoming a dragon, then a girl answered him.... then I saw them: a tall, handsome boy and a tall, gorgeous girl, with crazy blonde hair and a charming way of speaking.... then she looked at me, smiled and said: "Hi!" Only then I recognized that she was your daughter. They both were dressed up like top models ready to start on a catwalk, in a store looking at jewelry and talking about breathing fire!!"

I asked Baggy what she and her friend were up to and she said "oh yeah Kakashi [her friend] really was talking about becoming a dragon, we were talking about how much more fun life would be if we could just flash-fry everybody who peas us off. i think when i saw vanessa we might have been listing who we would start with."

that's my normal kid.

My little boy of 2 loves anything that drives, at the moment he's very much into trucks and is excited he can sort of pronounce it, except that he pronounces the word truck as 'f*uck'. So when we go out for a walk (we live in the city center) we pass trucks all the time and he calls out every single truck until it disappears from view and any other vehicle that looks a bit bigger than a car, so basically it's him yelling 'f*uck f*uck f*uck' the entire time. We turn quite a few heads every time we go out!

Apologies for the profanities

I had a sinus infection last week, and a little girl that I teach said to me, 'You have a different voice today!'

Me to M (2.5): you have such pretty golden hair.
M (patting my hair): your hair is full of rats.
Me: did you just say my hair is full of rats?
M: yeah, rats. And spaghetti.

Phineas, age 19 months, is poking around in our pantry.

My mom via Skype: Phineas, what's in the pantry?
Phineas: Snacks! And Daddy's beer.

<Thunder booms outside>
Me: Do you hear that? That is thunder.
Her: No, I don't hear anything.
Me: Really? Listen
<Thunder booms again louder>
Me: Do you hear that?
Her: No. I don't hear anything!
<A long slow rumble of thunder finally stops>
Her: It stopped!
Me: How do you know it stopped if you can't hear it?
