Random Miss-Speaks #55

#55

Miss: I can’t eat my strawberries, Mummy. There are no aliens here.

——————————————————————————————————–

Miss: My butt is real and my butt poops.

Miss: (Friend)’s Mummy and Daddy were telling him not to break his (toy) gun. So I hit him. 

Me: What? No, no hitting.

Miss: Oh. <brightens> With swords? <enthusiastically making poking motion with both hands>

Oh, and the Miss has a "reading" place now, which Rockstar is quite jealous of. Because she needs one ("reading" place) because she barely sits still for one book, and he doesn't really (need a particular place to read)

ps: You can tell I’m blogging lite, can’t you? Been sick about a week. Didn’t start of as anything that bad but boy is this tummy bug something else – the fatigue… Someone actually saw me sitting down catching my breath somewhere and messaged me… I went to a clinic and asked if they had anything for the tiredness and the doc said “Uh…. I can fix the bone pain or the nausea, but……. have you tried coffee?” NOT kidding…

Proving the Building Bug is alive and well with these two..

About the only similarity these two share is their affinity for stacking and building things with blocks. The Miss recently started doing this with the foam pits meant to cushion your fall at Ryze trampoline park (they watch us constantly to make sure we’re taking the blocks from less-populated areas, and immediately put everything back the moment we vacate).

This often attracts other kids for a time, and… of course… Rockstar.

(What else do we do but build towers around kid sisters?)

Why, put ourselves in one too!

The Times Are Changing, This Weekend…

1) How To Talk To Little Girls.

“…I wanted to squeal, “Maya, you’re so cute! Look at you! Turn around and model that pretty ruffled gown, you gorgeous thing!” But I didn’t….”

“…Teaching girls that their appearance is the first thing you notice tells them that looks are more important than anything. It sets them up for dieting at age 5…”

2) Tweets that tell you how much technology has changed, via – who else? Kids.

Like so...

Like so…

Like so...

Like so… (Also, too true)

3) Lego Crime Rings, what’ll they think of next… For Master Thieves, Legos Are The New Uncut Diamonds.

Lego Crime

It says Legos are virtually untraceable, and while they’re bulkier than diamonds they’re fairly easy to unload on sites like eBay. The other day a mum friend saw Star Wars Lego being sold in Prince Building for HKD 5-6k… She said it wasn’t a collector’s set yet, but it was being sold in a collector’s store… Not stolen of course, but it occurred to me just how much people pay for their kids’ toys… There’s gotta be some blow-you-off-your-feet statistic somewhere about all the stuff the average parent buys for their kids nowadays… Then again it’s also not only kids that buy toys :)

4) Move over, Godzilla, here’s GIANT DOGS.

And giant rubber chickens

I want one!

Oh wait, I have one. (Could've had the Miss "lying on JD's head" but they were moving so much I had to take the pics quickly)

5) You knew it had to happen… Rockstar skit this week is “Hairpiece”. 

Say what? And are they done?

Say what? And are they done?

Ah so.

ps: We bathe the Guinea Pig everytime he visits…
