You, Alright? I Learned It By Watching You!

Here's the scoop: We're pretty good about not swearing in front of the kids. Disregard this post. Anyway, for the most part they believe that "stupid" and "hate" and "Oh my God" are bad words.

As in,
"Mommy! So and so naughtiest kid at school said a bad word! He said 'stupid'!"

As in,
"Mommy! Jimmy Johnson (Ella's invisible friend) pushed me! And he says ALL the bad words like 'stupid' and 'hate' and 'Oh my God.'"
"Ella, why do you hang out with Jimmy Johnson if he's so naughty?"
"Mommy, I have NO idea."

And I would like to take this moment to thank Nemo for teaching them the word, "hate." You know what I'm talking about right? You do if your kids have forced you to watch Nemo 54 gazillion times. It's when Nemo's dad tells him not to go past the drop off and so Nemo whispers, "I hate you," right before he does it anyway. For a while Ella was saying it all the time. Lunchtime: "I hate strawberry jelly!" Naptime: "I hate my room!" Bathtime: "I hate shampoo!" Super awesome. Thank you Pixar. And Disney. I can always count on you.

Anyway, I'm taking down the paper wall in the basement because we're moving. Good bye, paper wall, I will miss you!

Peyton is hanging out with me, building with his Lincoln Logs.

"Mommy, how many days until we move back to Caniforna?" (Both of my kids say California exactly like that. It's adorable.)

"About twenty. Are you excited?"


"And you and Ella will probably share a room for a while. That will be cool."

"Yeah! SUCKAS!"

Suckas? As in Mr. T? Long pause. Because I already know the answer to:

"Hey Peyton, where did you learn that word?"

Huge smile. "You!"


I'm so proud.

LOL. This reminds me of my daughter who is 2 1/2.

I had asked my aunt and my mom to come along with us to a local antique festival. Georgia Kate had had enough shopping so I was letting her run up and down the sidewalk while everyone else shopped. This sweet little old couple got in her way and as she ducked and weaved around them, she screamed, "Out of my way, PUNK!"... It wasn't until a couple of weeks later that I overheard someone yell the exact same line on Spongebob... Fabulous :)

What a cool wall. It reminds me of a giant quilt. Fun colors and patterns, so lively.

Laughing and crying at the same time. 20 days? Am I being punk'd?

Cool wall!

We live in CA. We live in Orange County right now but are moving back down to San Diego in a few months.

Moving to California? That means you don't have to deal with those monstrous bugs that you posted about last time....yipeeee!! Make sure you don't pack one by mistake (hee, heee!) Lots of luck with your move...very exciting!

Ooooh, I love your paper wall!

I wish my two little ones liked each other enough to share a room...I want my craft room back! I have a 6YO and a 2½YO and they fight like cats and dogs!
