From the mouths of babes: Part 2

Josephine: “I just feel a little sick.”
Me: “what does it feel like?”
Josephine: “it feels like a monster bought me a present.”

Josephine: “Mama, you ruined my imagination!” when I took her plastic horses out of her bed at nap time so she would go to sleep

Josephine: “I sure wish it would rain.”
Me: “Why do you wish it would rain?”
Josephine: “Because I saved too much money.”
-when she puts money in the bank we tell her it’s to “save it for a rainy day”.

Josephine: “Mama, can I have your phone for a little bit?”
Me: “What are you going to look at?”
Josephine: “Just going to look at the news.”


From the mouths of babes

My kid says some funny stuff. Imagination’s a brewing…

My imaginative child while talking to an avocado pit she extracted and befriended: “Come on friend, let’s go in living room. We could play freeze tag.”

Me: “Come here baby.”
Josephine: “I’m not a baby, I’m captain hook!”

Me: “I’m going to go get in the shower, baby.”
Josephine: “No! Don’t! You are not stinky!”
(I beg to differ)

Josephine (every time Taylor makes dinner): “Thank you for baking a lovely dinner Daddy!” (no joke, those exact words).
Josephine (every time I cook dinner): “This dinner YUCKY!”

Josephine after she was told it was time to come inside for the night: “No, I’m a outside dog.”

The Grammys

Last night we watched the Grammys. Josephine was pretty upset when it started because she thought her Grammy would be on TV. Every time they would say Lady GaGa she would say, “where’s gaga?” (her name for Grammy Jane). Funny.
It pretty much hurts my soul to watch the Grammys, although sometimes I am impressed (I’m talking to you Adelle… and who doesn’t love The Boss, my all time celebrity crush?). My favorite Grammy moment was when Josephine asked me who LL Cool J was and I sang her some if his big hit “Mama Said Knock You Out”. She then asked, “What’s gonna happen now mama? He gonna knock people down?”. Oh, my. I still haven’t stopped laughing.
