This is my first week to participate in Friday Fragments. It is a wonderful opportunity to share those tidbits that aren't enough for a full post.
This week, my children provided me with lots of fodder. As they say, "kids say the darnedest things!"
My daughter is obsessed with what she calls my son's "peanut". We were working on learning body parts and when I tried to correct her, she insisted that it was a peanut. Not only that but she has begun standing in front of the toilet and states emphatically that she has a peanut and therefore can take care of her business standing like her brother. Boy, is that ammunition for later days!
Also, while we are in the bathroom, she nearly made me wet my pants. She has a very bad habit of stepping onto the ledge of the tub rather than over and I am always stressing that she can fall and get hurt doing that. It is so funny to hear your own words come back through the perspective of a three year old. As she steps out of the bath, she says "Careful! Careful! I can't step there or else I fall and my brain fall out!" (In case it needs to be said, I have never told her that her brain will fall out. )
Driving home from school, my son shared a little of his wisdom. Sitting in his booster chair, he says, "Mommy!" What baby? "Do you know teenagers are learning to be adults?" Whaaaaaat? (Pretty profound, huh? He doesn't even know any teenagers!) "Yeah, and when they learn how to be adults, they grow up. Then they get married." (I chose not to inform him how few people actually grow up before getting married, I figured he had enough years to learn that!)
Finally, a question for myself. "Casual dressy". Is that casual clothes made dressy or dressy clothes made casual? One of my best buddies had a party the other night and that was the directive. I am lost by this. I went with a fun skirt and a sweater but most of the women had on jeans with heels and great tops. What do you wear when it's casual dressy?
