Funny Little Four Year Old

Kids really do say the darndest things! CK has been really funny lately too. I just had to write down a couple of things yesterday that had me laughing or else I knew I would forget. Of course, for those of you who have never heard her talking, it is hard to get the full picture. She has the raspiest little voice, which when added to her little pre-school speech impediments, is just hilarious! Anyway...

First, she had been helping me make some orange rolls yesterday. I got the recipe from my mother-in-law (and they are just amazing by the way), so I always tell the kids they are Grandma Shirley's rolls. Anyway, I told her she had to wash her hands before she helped me, which she dutifully did. She was just talking up a cute little storm as we were making them. I had given her a little piece of dough to roll out which took her about 10 minutes to get rolled out enough for me to knot. As she was rolling, she started telling me about different the different parts of her face, and was touching each part, including her hair and nose. So, I told her she had to wash her hands again. She really didn't understand why because she had already washed her hands. I finally told her, "because I don't want germs in my rolls." She quickly replied, "But dey not yor wolls, dey Gwama Siwley's."

Just after we finshed the rolls (and she did go and wash them again, for those of you who ate them and were worried), I was cleaning up. She kept asking me for something, I don't remember what, but I was telling her no. She finally looked up at me and said, "Don't make me tell your mom on you!"

A little while later, she was playing outside my bedroom door while Dave was watching the Cardinals/Eagles game (go Cards!) and it was the point where the Eagles came back and took the lead after being down 18 points in the last 5 minutes of the 4th quarter. Dave started angrily yelling, "Doggoneit!!" and stomping around. CK anxiously ran in the room with her eyes as big as saucers, asking, "Mom! What happened?!?!?! Did 'Doggoneit' win?!?!? Did 'Doggoneit' win?!?!?"

Oh she is hiliarous. And I LOVE raspy little voices and speech impediments! So cute. Don't you just love how easy blogging makes it to record all these things. Congrats to Dave on the Supreme Court case, keep us posted.

Also, I got Abby's fake glasses at Claire's, just that accessory store in the malls.
