This morning it was raining when I dropped Monster off at soccer camp. So, the plan was Sunshine would stay in the van and play while I got Monster checked in. After about 3 minutes, I ran back to the car to check on her. She was covered in sunscreen. She was completely white. I caught her trying to put even more on. When I took the sunscreen away, all she kept saying over and over was, "No! [Sunshine] need sunscreen!".
Today I was thinking about how sweet my son is. When I was pregnant with Sunshine, I was horribly sick. I couldn't get out of bed for a month, other than to go throw up. Monster was precious. I hated to throw up in front of him, but sometimes it just couldn't be helped. When I did, he would rub my back and say, "It's OK, Mommy. It's OK."
Shopping with Sunshine yesterday afternoon, I go to buy some beer for my husband. I stick my hand in the cooler to get some Beck's and Sunshine starts flipping out. She starts yelling, "No!!! Bur with Mommy! Daddy like bur with Mommy." It take me a moment until I realize that she's pointing at the case of St. Pauli Girl. Yes, honey, that totally looks like Mommy....
Sunshine is going to hate this one when she gets older...Sunshine sings songs for everything. She makes up cute little ditties all the time. Well, this time in the car she was singing, "I pick my boogies. I pick my boogies." She's so ladylike. Later in the same car ride, she said, out of the blue, "[Sunshine] no eat boogies. That gross." I guess at least if she picks 'em she knows not to eat 'em!
Husband is looking at Monster's stuffed puppy. Tells Monster it looks like it needs some stitching. "And I know just the girl to do it," says Husband. Monster replies, "Who? Nana?" Yup. My kid knows Mommy can't sew.
I probably should have named this tab My Kids Say and Do since the other blog section is more about daily life and philosophies....Anyway...there are no secrets with Sunshine around. No one can get away with anything. She will tell on you in a second. So the other day was a bad day. Both kids were poorly behaved. Husband got home and the first thing out of Sunshine's mouth was "[Monster] no behave". Then my husband asked if about her, if she behaved. She shakes her head yes and replies, "[Sunshine] behave. [Sunshine] nice". Uh, not so much sweetie.
And on to the do...my daughter is a multi-tasker. Apparently that has been my greatest influence on her thus far. Yesterday morning, we were getting ready to head out to VBS, and she's vacuuming, moving chairs, carrying her baby doll, and talking on her phone, all at the same time. I was very impressed since I can't even talk on the phone
For some reason, Sunshine never says PeeEw! something smells, but she says, "P O!" and holds her nose!
In my opinion, my kids are pretty damned funny. However, their funny sayings don't rule my day. That's why I decided to do a whole separate tab for things me kids say. To get this started, here are some of the more recent quotes from my kids. Actually, they are mostly from Monster since Sunshine is still learning to talk.
