When my children were smaller I was very good about writing down the funny things they'd say. I've slacked off on that over the years but these two things are things I want to remember and since my blog is the closest thing to scrapbooking that I do these days, this is the perfect place to "write" it.
I took the girls to Colorado Springs to see a local production of Pippi Longstocking last night. It was VERY cute! When Abbey woke up this morning she told me (in a highly exasperated voice) that she TRIED to sleep Pippi-style last night--feet on your pillow, head at the foot of the bed--but that sleeping that way was IMPOSSIBLE. Cracked me up.
About a month ago, when all the William and Kate wedding hype began I asked the girls if they wanted to see the royal wedding. I told them all about watching the wedding of Charles and Diana when I was a young girl and how exciting an event such as this would be. I went on and on and on until they mustered up some enthusiasm and agreed to watch it with me. I told them we might have to get up really early to see it on television. Abbey looked me square in the eye and said, "What? You mean we have to watch it on the stinkin' TV? I thought you meant we were GOING TO THE ROYAL WEDDING." That girl is a keeper!
