Ruminations on life, uncut and unfiltered, straight from the mind of my six year old daughter.
“Uh, mom? Your butt is big.”
“Oh, I mean lovely. Yeah! Your butt is lovely!”
“Well, I think peeing is dumb.
It’s just dumb and stupid and I don’t like it!
Why do we always have to stop playing to go pee all the time?
I won’t do it anymore. I won’t!”
“Watcha doin’ Mom and Dad? Getting all snuggly?
You guys gettin’ all snuggly-wuggly and cuddly? All kissy? Kissy-poo?
Well, that’s just SO GROSS! I don’t wanna see that!EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!”
“I have a new boyfriend now, Mommy.
His name is Gabriel and he sits next to me at the triangle table.
He’s nice but he breaks all the crayons so from now on I’m going to have to call him Gary.”
“I am so excited to go back to school tomorrow, because I have P.E. class!
Yeah! And I LOOOOOOOVE P.E.!
Well, actually, I hate it….we run, we jump, we do stuff. I do get SO tired.
(sighs and looks wearily off into the distance)
But I really, REALLY love the part when we get to drink water from the fountain!”
(Over the past two weeks of vacation, I also learned Little Miss J’s new favorite catchphrase.
This is her response to almost everything I do or say:)
“Seriously? Be serious!
Are you serious?
And so kids, tomorrow? It’s back to school! Seriously!
