Ms. Lilly is a hoot; a genuine kick in the pants! The hilarious verbiage that comes out of her mouth never ceases to knock my socks off and crack me up! Here are a few faves from the last week.
*I was attempting to vacuum the living room. Cam was chasing the vacuum cleaner (he's got a thing for anything with wheels), and Lilly was perched safely on the couch with her feet protectively tucked beneath her. (As if I would try to suck up her toes...sheesh!):
"Oh no, Mom! Mom!? You have to stop vacuuming! I don't want Cam to get sucked up. Don't you dare suck up MY little brother!"
"I think I'm ready to get in the tub now. I really want to be all shiny and clean."
*After paying a visit to the toilet:
"Hey Mom! I just went one big poop in the potty! Isn't that neat?! Isn't that great?!" (Yes, this one IS positively disgusting, but I include it in this post to illustrate how undeniably kooky my life as a mother can be!)
*We have a sliding glass door/window in our kitchen. I was wiping sticky (and kind of adorable) little fingerprints off of it with a paper towel and some Windex. (I heart Windex!) Lilly asked me if she could help. I gave her a paper towel and sprayed some Windex for her:
"Aaah! You just sprayed my hand!"
"Sorry, Lil! I didn't mean to," I said.
"Oh, that's okay. Sometimes in life, things just happen." (Said like a wise sage; like Buddha. Meditate on that!)
*While grocery shopping:
"Hey! I just realized something. Boys are gross. Boys are really gross."
*While playing the hilarious (and oh-so-addicting) game, Angry Birds, on our iPad:
"GREEN birds! Oh my gosh, there are green birds in this level! It's a Christmas miracle!"
Ready for "the recap"? Boys are gross, green birds are miraculous, and everybody poops. Things just happen, beware the vacuum, and if you really want to shine...take a bath.
Aaah, life with YOUNG CHILDREN!! Ain't it GRAND?!
(And if you ask me, that Lilly Girl doesn't need a bath to shine. She does that naturally.)
