Hair Pain and other stuff
Maddy is really looking forward to her next "hair pain" experience. It's been on her mind almost constantly so it's all she talks about. We're visiting Nana and Granddad for Christmas this year and we're flying on an airplane (aka hair-pain) and she's giddy with excitement! I can't help but feel giddy with affection for my little baby girl when I hear her pronounce 'airplane' that way.
Our Garmin (nav system) has an amusing speech problem. She says "Highway hatey-five" instead of "85" and "ex pwee" instead of "expressway" and I swear she sighs in exasperation when I miss my turn and she is forced to recalculate. Anyone else notice this?
Gwen had a bad dream the other night. She described it as a 'bad dream in my brain' and she went on to detail it in choppy terms that we could only half understand so we were constantly repeating things back to her just to make sure we heard the story correctly. It was something about Maddy and running really fast and i be afraid then it was something that sounded like "i eet mi lil freend" so we checked in with her to be sure: "You ate your little friend?" And she replied "Yes.... But I'm all better now" Then we laughed hysterically for at least a full minute and she kept asking us what was so funny. Let's just hope we're not relaying this story to a Grand Jury some day.
When I tucked her into her bed at nap time today, Gwen said "I so sorry about your laundry basket, Mommy" (Huh? Is there a problem with my laundry basket?)
Gwen: It only leetle hole
Mom: Just a little hole?
Gwen: Yes, just this big (holding thumb and forefinger about one inch apart) ---
Not this big (holding hands as far apart as her arms would reach).
Then she repeated "just this big" (with her thumb and forefinger
an inch apart) and then she jabbed her other hand forcefully
through that small opening!
Oooooo Kaaaaaay...... I'm off to see if my laundry baskets are still functional!
