pass the bonbons, please

Girl Terror has been focused lately on growing up. She loves to talk about what it will be like when she "gets big", and has a definite plan. Occasionally she adds things to her plan. The newest edition of being a grown up was described in this conversation with her Daddy:

GT: I grow up, I be a big lady.
Dad: Mmm hmmm.
GT: I wear make-up, dry my hair. Like Mummy!
D: Just like Mummy.
GT: I do dishes, clean, vacuum.
D: What else does Mummy do all day?
GT: Hmmm. Get drinks, talk on the phone!
D: Mummy drinks and talks on the phone all day?
GT: Yes! Call Natalie! Have drinks! When I big lady, me too!

There you have it. I do dishes, clean, vacuum, and for the rest of the day I drink and talk on the phone. I had no idea my life was this good.

It's amazing what you can learn about yourself from your children, isn't it?

She's awfully cute.

At least she didn't say light my hair on fire ;0) Too cute...today her name is Girl Not-so-terror-ible.

Hm, she makes motherhood sound so much easier than college. Luckily, I can't yet keep fish alive and therefore don't think I should be responsible for another *person*. :)

I guess it is all about WHAT you are drinking after you do the vacuuming and dishes!

Shelley said...

Well, at least she has a plan...

you are obviously living a very glamorous life. Can I come over for cocktails?

Now you have to hope she doesn't tell other people that. Otherwise you are going to be signed up for AA by family members! LOL

Oh my God, I'm rolling! Great post - great kid! Daughters are the best for ratting out their moms.

At least she didn't say you sit at the computer all day.

I recently asked my 5-year-old niece what she wanted to be when she grows up.

"A Mum!"

:o)
