Happy SITS Day! Let Me Entertain You With Some Anecdotes

January 16, 2012 BG1, Parenting 78

Welcome! Welcome everyone, to my humble online abode. I hope you enjoy your stay here.

I’ve been waiting for this day for quite some time and when I finally got the email, I panicked. How am I going to best present myself so you all could see how interesting and great I am?! I argued over a self-interview, a mini autobiography, links of some of my favorite posts, etc. After grappling with myself for days to make sure I didn’t mess up this great opportunity, I decided I would share the spotlight with my oldest daughter, BG1, who is 7 and tell you a few funny stories about her.

After a fresh haircut, complete with curls and sparkles her hairdresser always does for her.

FYI: If any of you remember me from my blog critique a couple months ago, you should know I’ll be going through a content revamp this year and you can expect great things, so I’d love to have you stick around and share these crazy, blog-worthy moments with me. Thanks!

I Think My Daughter is Figuring Out That I Don’t Know Everything

For some reason, my daughter doesn’t like to take showers. She’s not dirty or anything, we do make her take showers everyday, but if it were up to her, she wouldn’t.

One day, we had a nice little discussion:

Me: “Why don’t you like taking showers?”

BG1: “I don’t like taking showers because it makes me itchy.”

Me: “The itchiness is because you’re dirty. See, that’s why you have to take a shower everyday so you’re not dirty and itchy.”

BG1: “But, then why do I only itch after I take a shower and not before?”

Me: ………………..

BG1: (stares at me curiously and inquisitively) “Mommy?”

Me: “I don’t know the answer to that, sweetie.”

We both looked each other in the eye for second, then burst out laughing and I quickly changed the subject to that night’s dinner so she forgets this little #MomFail.

My Kid’s a Smartie

I don’t normally give my kids candy, so I thought BG1 didn’t have a favorite, but after this incident I realized she does.

It was a good day so she was allowed some treats and I casually walk into a room to find she is happily licking a few Smarties wrappers after having devoured them and not fully being satisfied. I just had to look at her with a “what the?!” face and laugh. She said she wanted more but Daddy told her he didn’t have anymore, so her solution was to lick the wrappers.

She’s a Smart Shopper

BG1 loves shopping for gifts at her school’s Santa Shop during Christmas time and after finding presents for the family, she had some money left over. Naturally, she couldn’t resist picking out some stuff for herself. She ended up choosing like 5 different things, but, being a clever little vixen, she tried to play it off and wrote on each of the tags that it was for her little sister, who is only 10 months. I love how she has mastered the art of rationally buying gifts for yourself, while making you look good and nice. I’m sure her teachers thought she was just being a great big sister.

Later on, however, The Hubbi asked her to put the presents she bought under their little Christmas tree while at Grandma’s house, and she got upset and said, “I wish I had presents under the tree.” The Hubbi responded with, “What are you talking about? Those are all your gifts.” Her response, “I know, but they don’t have my name on it!”. Ah, kids…

I love this girl!

So, what funny little anecdotes do you have to share about your kids?!

    Happy SITS Days! Your girls are adorable. I have a whole catagory I call “Conversations with Charlie” that I put in my blog with some of the more interesting things he’s said or we’ve talked about. In fact one is posted just today. He just turned 7 last week.

    Congrats on your SITS Day! I love all these stories πŸ™‚ I think my favorites from our household are when the Babby says weird things about us…. like when she told her papa he was a ‘beardo’ and a very stinky guy or she said to me “Your eyes are pretty, your hair is pretty, your teeth are pretty, your boogers are pretty!”

    Hmm… maybe it’s the particular brand of soap she is using? Or maybe she needs moisturizer, like lotion? I bet if she put on lotion the itchies would calm down.

    I have an anecdote. When my son Aidan was five, I was talking with him on the phone. I told him that he was very smart, and he answered with, “that’s because I eat a lot of Smarties.”

    Oh yeah, Happy SITs Day! πŸ˜€

    Love BG1! She is awesome and I think I want to be her which is weird since I am 30 years older than her….but really, she is resourceful, inquisitive, rational and “a giver:)”

    The presents story is hilarious …and I am pretty sure when she is 13 you will have your hands even more full. Happy SITS day…looking forward to reading more…love that you want to be a Pediatrician…such a great example for your minis.

    Off to read more!
