More Laine-ism's




Okay, I'm cracking up. I just recieved a blessing, a blessing from my 4 year old daughter. We had just finished stories and prayer, the nighttime routine, when Laine announced she wanted to give me a blessing.

I was curious, so I went with it, wondering where this would go. She proceed to stand above me {I was still kneeling} and place her hands upon my head and give me a 'blessing'.

It was so sweet, she said lot's of nice things about us both being nice and not cranky and Gabey being nice... lot's of specific things about him not throwing stuff down the stairs etc. etc. It was too funny, and very sweet. She wanted me to give her one next, but I told her only Daddy could.

The girl is funny. She gets it from me, what can I say.

Earlier tonight, as we were cooking together she said,

'Mom, did you make me'

I wasn't getting it.

I said, 'Did I make you what?' wondering what the little ingrate wanted now. I kid. She continued,

'No, did you make ME?'

Oh. Got it.

'Uh, yup, I did'. I went into it a little bit but she was still confused.

'What did you make me out of? Did you make me out of...{scanning the room for ideas}...salt?'

I probably could have used this as a great time for a life's lesson, especially now that she is in school and may get educated by other Kindies. But we're still in the stage where we call her 'lady region' a 'taco'. Yeah, it is confusing when we go out for Mexican food, but since there really isn't much to be found here we've stuck with it. -Gabe's is a 'winky' in case you're wondering. Perhaps this is TMI, I'm not sure. I think I might be missing the chromosome that would tell you if it was or not. Either way I think it is funny to know what others are telling their kids, so I'll share what I'm telling mine.

Anyway, back to The Girl. She has the gift, the gift of gab which I'm pretty sure she got from me as well. She loves to use big words to sound intelligent -though it doesn't seem as calculated as when I do it. She does crack me up with her silliness though, and her often circular logic. Some new Laine-isms:

{said very enthusiastically} "It's a nice day for a sunny day!"

Laine, looking at a paint can with a picture of a Mom and daughter on it, "I like that little girl. She's my friend. I need to go to her house and play. That little girl is my friend. I like her"

There are so many more that I've missed that I've forgotten to write down, which is such a shame.

Anyway, as I mentioned, she started Kindie. She goes to all-day Kindergarten which is 9-3. She attends Ironbark Ridge Primary {'prime-ree'} School and she has to wear a uniform, as you can plainly see above. She must wear her hat to play outside as well. Her teacher is Mrs. Adams and she is loving it, which is really good. NOT the best pics, but you get the idea.

Your stories and pictures are full of joy; they simply make me smile! It's nice to hear sweet stories of how your raising your family. Her school pictures look like "Madeline" so cute - I love that they call it Kindie and wear hats when they play outside. Thanks for sharing.

I love Laines school uniform! She is such a doll. She makes life fun! Loved hearing all the stories...write them down though because one day you will forget them. I am so glad I wrote down things you kids did and said. I love to go back and read them. Alot of them I don't even remember, and some I do so its good to write it. Precious times!

I love your posts SO much. I don't think hearing about your kids taco and winki is TMI, I loved it. It was the best part. I like it...winki. I might steal that one. I was interested in hearing you try to explain what you made her out of!!!

Kate Gildea said...

K, that outfit is killing me. She looks like Anne of Green Gables or something. And I had no idea that babies came from salt, you learn something new every day!

Mel said...

What a doll! And if she is just like you she is one lucky girl!

Courtney said...

Sorry to hear she isn't at the school closer to you, that you wanted her to go to. Samuel Gilbert is a really good school she will love it I am sure:)

Courtney! I'm retarted! Why did I write that she goes to Samuel Gilbert?? She DOES go to Ironbark Ridge where I wanted her to go. Fixing it...

Laine looks so adorable in that uniform with that hat! When Ross was little I had a conversation on just this topic of "names" with L. Grazzini. She told me abt a friend who with her little boy called it a "Russel". That boy game home from kindergarten on the first day wondering why on earth the parents of one of his new friends would name their son after that body part!

leah said...

Laine sound a lot like you. Before ya know it she'll be sleeping in only a tub top and taking baths with her jeans on.

Courtney said...

Nat, the funny thing is, I thought the uniform did not match what I thought is was for Samuel Gilbert but I thought maybe it had changed!! That's cool, I am happy for you and her:)

I'm laughing out-loud at "taco"!

Ashley said...

My HAT! (quote from the movie) She looks just like Madaline!

okay, taco is hil.ar.ious. we call it a front bum in our house. I once taught a little girl swim lessons, and she jumped off the high dive and came up screaming, MY VULVA! I was like, 'your stomach?' And she pointed to her 'taco' and screamed, 'No! MY VULVA'. I was mortified to later learn that the innards of the 'taco' are called the vulva. Yikes, anatomy lesson please.

Stacey said...

Wow, I have not laughed this hard in a long time, I was crying and couldn't talk and my husband was wondering why.... aah, funny stuff. Your friend Ashley's comment is what got me. "taco?"
"front bum" "my vulva" where do you people come up with these! love it.
