Motherhood means No. 17

Yesterday was sunny, with temperatures again in the mid-20s. Today, we are overcast and still. "Rain coming", as my little weather girl, B, would say.


Motherhood means...laughing at malapropisms and mispronunciations.

B (reaching the last bench at the top of the hill, flopping herself down and refusing to move) : "No, Mama, I'm not going! I need to be-lax!"

AJ (at the first of this year's many children's parties) : No, Mama, I don't want apple juice! I want that black stuff - that Crackly-ola!

And lastly, Mama spots a rash on B's tummy. She says, "Let me look at your tummy. I think you have a rash". B takes off in the other direction, clutching the waistline of her PJs very tightly. When Mama catches up with her, B protests : "No, Mama, don't look. There's no trash down there!"




PS Thanks, D, for a lovely afternoon with a view.

Short and sweet. Nice post. I even learned something new! "malapropism" is now in my vocabulary... ;-)

I have a good one by my Granddaughter - Grandpa do you like "snake and kidney pie?" Sounds delicious!!!!

You will be so glad you have these written down when they are older. It's so fun to go back and read them. I would write my girls cute sayings in their baby book. I knew I'd never remember them if I didn't.
These are precious.
I love the crackly-ola.

I love those cute little things kids say and miss them now that my kids are big!

Hi all, thanks for your comments! I'm glad too that I have a way of remembering these sayings, otherwise I'd forget them instantly. The Crackly-ola made me laugh a lot at the birthday party -- and after one cup he really was Crackly!
