Did you vote? I didn’t. Hey! Don’t judge. I will. I mean how else are we going to get those cool stickers? I have kids… of course we want stickers! I don;t mean to get all political, but it is voting day, so I’m going to need you to vote. Don’t worry it’s a fun poll. Which 80s toy is the best? My Little Pony or Carebear? But wait. I’m going to make it
harder impossible for you to choose.
See? You can’t possible choose a favorite! Those are my little 80s toys on Halloween and I dressed as an 80s girl to go with them. And as cute as my Carebear and My Little Pony are to look at, they are just as cute to listen to. And funny! They are so funny!
“I shouldn’t kiss your butt. It’s too sweaty.” - Aliana
Probably true since I’d been running. Maybe don’t kiss it even if it’s not sweaty.
“Mommy God must really love you because he gave you a girl with curly hair. He even gave you TWO girls with curly hair, that’s how much he loves you.” - Isla
“Mommy I love you! I love you so much because you gived me chocolate!” - Aliana
Who says you can’t buy love?
“I’m five years old now so I don’t have cute hands and feet anymore. - Isla
Nope… still cute.
Aliana: Why is her belly so big?
Me: She is pregnant. She has a baby in there.
Aliana: Oh. Is there a baby in your big belly too?
You’re lucky you’re so cute, Little Girl!
Me: It looks like someone has been jumping on the couch.
Isla: Not me! I’m 5. Five year olds don’t do things they’re not supposed to.
Me: I can tell when you’ve been jumping on the couch because it’s moves it and it’s not in the right spot right now.
Isla: Oh. Well maybe I did… Yesterday when I was 4.
“Awww Mommy, you’re just like a cute little mousy… Just like a mousy on Cinderella!” - Aliana
Obviously. Because only mousies sew.
“No, Aliana, that’s not litter, it’s glitter. Can you say gLLLitter? Litter is when bad people throw trash on the ground. It makes the whole entire world messy. Glitter is sparkle, so it’s good. But picking up trash is even better than glitter.” - Isla
Bad people litter. Good people clean up. Got it.
“Why you get a box of leafs?” - Aliana
Fabulous description of my to-go salad.
“Aliana, carry this for me because we all have jobs to do around in this house, and that’s your job. You know what Isla’s job is? Isla’s job is to make the world good. I make the world good by picking up trash on the ground.” - Isla
Is it possible I have over-emphasized the problem of litter and pollution in my effort to teach the girls to care about the environment?
Aliana: Can I have candy?
Aliana: Why? It doesn’t taste like poison!
She has a point. Still no.
“Is tightroping safe?” - Isla
Yes. Now go play in traffic.
What did your little ones dress up as for halloween?
Costumes: Store bought or Homemade?
- Homemade for as long as I can convince my girls it’s cool!
Do you dress up too?
And you know I’m going to ask… Please, pretty please share a cute or funny quote from your child?
