What to muse about today?

July 6, 2013


Teagan has been funny lately. She’s started trying to tell knock knock jokes.  They’re awesome:

Knock, Knock!
Who’s there?
Banana who?
It’s a bear!


Knock, knock!
Who’s there?
Eyeball who?
Why are you crying?

Then, she follows up with her endless questions.  Today in the grocery store she asks Stu:

“Why is there an Indian lady on the butter?”  Stu has no idea why Land O Lakes has an Indian lady as part of their graphics. “Daddy, will she shoot us?”

Where has she been learning these things?  I blame day care!

WhaThis morning, Ashlin was too hungry for hugs! It may be one sign of the Apocalypse.  She had already had her first breakfast at the house, but it must not have been enough. Ashlin will usually hug everyone at day care when she comes in. Today?  Nope, she had no time for suck niceties. She even walked past two of her favorite teachers.  When Teacher S asked for her hug, Ashlin simply raised her hand and said “hi!”.   She then went right up to the table where breakfast was waiting, picked through the stack of bowls until she found the right one. She held it up like Excalibur and announced “pink one,” grabbed a handful of cheerios from the big bowl and put them in hers. Then she sat down, like a princess, waiting for someone big to pour her milk.

Such a personality.
