Building The Skills

In the last week or so, C has been trying to learn to spell on the computer. Today she is trying to write.

Look out, world.

A Little Reminder

C calls her goodnights from her bedroom. Then she adds, "Hey, J! Do you know that I am awesome?"

After A While

On Her Way!

C is throwing a fit because I won't let her fill out a Common Application. You know...the one for colleges.

I don't think they're ready for her yet.

Nothing Much To Do

We are at the kids' swimming lesson. As the instructor guides another student across the pool, C interrupts. "Teacher! TEACHER! I had a boring day at home today."

This explains why I've not had much to post!

Think She'll Change Her Mind One Day

C: I don't like boys. I only like girls. Boys are evil!!

Me: Why are boys evil?

C: Because boys do things I DON'T LIKE!

Run That By Me Again?

Ah, spring is in the air. The ground is chilly, but the sun warms the legs of the little girl running through the yard with no pants on...

A Whole New World!

C is SO excited.

J needs a book that is only available at a library about half an hour away. This morning I told C that we need to go to a library we haven't been to before.

Now, every few minutes, she comes to me and asks, "When are we leaving? I want to discover the new library! Can we go now?"

Dental Imbalance

You wish I was videorecording her right now. Unfortunately there is no way to do it given the circumstances.

She has one of those toy microphones that echoes the voice inside of the toy. She's singing this amazing rock song; got great dance moves, too.

"He's got a CAAAAAAAAA-vity! He's got a CAAAAAAAA-vity!
Ooooooh, cavity! Ooooooh, cavity!
He's got one here, he's got one there,
he's got 'em everywhere!
He's got CAAAAAAAA-vities! He's got CAAAAAAA-vities!"

There are an infinite number of verses about all the things he ate and all the times he didn't brush.

It's Beneath Her

Me: What's all this "Don't tell Momma" stuff?
C: Well...I was not good.
Me: It's always better to tell me yourself instead of waiting for someone else to tell me.
C: Okay. I colored on the wall again. But I AM SORRY!
Me: Well, I forgive you, but you'll have to clean it off.
C: Awwwwwwwwwwh!! DIGNITY!!

On The Menu

C: I love eggs! They're so soft and squishy when you step on them!
