What to muse about today?

It’s a Leprechaun!

This is Teagan’s Leprechaun.  She made it at day care the other day and couldn’t wait to show it to us – it still had a little wet glue at pick up.  She tried telling Stu what it was, even though she couldn’t remember the word “leprechaun.”  So much fun watching her brain try to make the connection.

She said:  “I made uh… uh… uh…  A person.  It’s a person who gives presents next to a rainbow!”
Oh, honey, do you mean a leprechaun?
Yes! A leper-corn!
Sweetie, it’s lepra-con.  Leper is not quite the same thing.

I think he’s kinda cute.  He’s already hanging on the wall.


She’s been a case of opposites lately.  Super adorable one minute, pint-sized demon the next.  And one that is bursting the seams of her clothes and shoes!  But I don’t want to really think about all the clothes I need to try to mend, all the shoes we’re going to need to get her.  How upset she made me when she said that we could simply buy her a new one.  I have no idea where she got that.

Let’s leave with another cute moment, shall we?

On the way to day care the other day, she told Stu that when she starts Kindergarten, she wants a backpack.  A very specific one.  It’ needs to be a fuchsia backpack, and inside she wants a Jake and the Neverland Pirates lunchbox. In the lunchbox she wants sandwiches, fruit snacks and a drink. Oh, and of course Booty.  She wants Pirate’s Booty.

She may be practicing her pirate signature

    I think her leper-corn person is absolutely adorable. She did a fine job! And even knowing about pirate’s booty is hilarious. What, may I ask, are you going to use for the ‘booty’?? :) By the time she actually starts kindergarten, it may be something else entirely! They are trying at times, but know they are totally worth every trial, every tender moment and then some. Hugs to the family.

    There were times when the kids went through shoes every 6 weeks. And seemed to grow overnight.

    • lisasff says:

      Yeah. We’re just now seeing that growth spurts. Overnight, she’ll almost “hulk” out of shoes and pants. It’s crazy.

      This is a bit different though. In the past two weeks she’s ripped at least 6 pairs of pants or leggings and destroyed one pair of shoes.

      Ashlin is doing her best to grow out of her clothes too, though she’s much less rough on them than her sister.

    Yeah, kids tend to rip/tear and outgrow clothes fairly fast between 2 and 6. I hear your ‘pain’ in trying to keep them in clothes that fit or are not in rags. :)

    • lisasff says:

      It’s totally crazy though. She went through six or seven pairs of pants in two weeks. One was BRAND NEW. We told her that she would need to buy a new pair – from the second hand store, but she doesn’t need to know that – if she rips another pair. With her money. We’ll replace the money without her knowing, but thought it may be good for her to get some idea of expense and responsibility.

      • Kat says:

        That’s taking opportunity for lesson time and initiating responsibility early. Good idea. Hopefully, she won’t have to spend ‘her’ money but once to realize what it means to replace something she LIKES. :)

        • lisasff says:

          Yeah. I’m hoping the lesson will be learned, that she takes a bit more care with her things… We’ll totally let her think it was her money, but well, she sleeps like a stone, and we do get a bit of time in the house when she’s not here… plenty of time to sneak money back in without her knowing.
