Merry Christmas!

Sorry for the belated well-wishes!  I finally uploaded my camera photos now that March is almost over, and I'm going to retroactively post some of them. (back-dating them, since this blog is mostly a family history of sorts)

We had cousins over and made gingerbread houses.  Hopefully this will be a yearly tradition!

Hazel: (holding a pretend cell phone up to her ear) mom, ask me a question
Me: who are you talking to?
Hazel: excuse me! I'm on the phone! Don't interrupt me!

Kid Conversation

When it's time for home preschool, Hazel likes to call me "teacher" instead of "mom".  Unrelatedly, she also likes to direct our conversations sometimes when we are pretending together (because in her mind, preschool is pretend since I'm not really a teacher and we're not really at preschool...) and tell me what to say, much like Peach tells her what to say when they are playing pretend together.

I can't now remember what I was talking about with Hazel, but we were in the bathroom and I was brushing her hair before we could start our home preschool, so in her eyes, I had already morphed into "teacher" and we had just finished talking about something I (as her mom) had asked her to do earlier...

wow that was a lot of backstory for not much ahead...

Hazel: (talking to me, the teacher) Say, "Your mom is a pretty smart lady!"
me: (inwardly relishing) Your mom is a pretty smart lady!
Hazel: Yeah.  Except she always tells me my clothes have to match.  I don't like it when she says that.

To understand this one, you have to know I'm pregnant...

Hazel: Mom, I think the baby's sleeping.
Me: How do you know?
Hazel: Because... I can't hear it.

Peach: Mom, is it fast Sunday today?
Me: yes, it is
Peach: OK!  Then I'm going fast!

Kid Conversation?

I was checking on The Frog before going to bed and he said this in his sleep:

The Frog: Mom. You don't even know I'm in Zelda right now.

well.  I guess now I do :)

Kid Conversation

When my kids say something funny, I usually send myself an email to remind me to post it here.  I haven't posted awhile and when I finally went through them today (7/18/16) I can't now remember if this was Hazel or Peach...

Me: [sounding like a monster and creeping towards Peach/Hazel]  he he he.  I smell a little girl who hasn't brushed her teeth!  Those are the tastiest kind for crunching and munching!
Peach/Hazel:  Well, I have blood in my body.  I don't think you're going to like the blood.  It's not crunchy.  It's just red.  But you can still chase me!

Tucking Hazel into bed, she has 2 baby dolls in there with her:

Hazel:  [to self] Oh bother... I guess I'll have to sleep with two babies tonight.  [to me] My baby wakes me up at night.  She's a meaniac.
Me: Don't you mean a "maniac"?
Hazel: Mean- yeah.  AND she's from Maine.  And she wakes me up, and that's naughty.

Kid Conversation

A seemingly normal day...
Peach: Woah, Mom!
Me: What?
Peach: Did you know you have really long arms?
Me: I do?
Peach: Yeah! You totally remind me of cookie monster!
Peach: Except with less hair.

Peach busts into the room while I'm helping Hazel with the potty.

Peach: (punching fist into the air and with loud excitement) I'm Promedia!!.... (fading out and talking to herself)
no. wait...  (with renewed vigor and more emphasis.  Stronger punching fist in the air)
I'm Sally!! the frost ninja!!
(now casually) You can't see me.
