Ainsley's been on a tear the last few days. I can't keep up with her goofy statements anymore.
Yesterday, after sitting in some powdered sugar that spilled on her chair - "Wook! I have a white bum!" Yes, you do. You look like a snowman. "No. When a kid gets powder on her bum, she looks like a snow tiger." Of course.
After me asking her if she wanted to pour the powdered sugar into the mixer (always good for a poofy mess) "I ahways DEAMED of doing that! You making my deams come twoo!" *looking at me askance* "Are you a faiwy godmother?"
She ran up and slapped me on the butt, which resulted in me chasing her around the room and her screaming in fake terror, "Don't get me, I am your kid!!!!!"
After getting powdered sugar above her lip, "Wook! It is MUSTACHE powder!! I a daddy now." *looking down at herself* "No, I still a girl."
Walks by smacking a wooden spoon against her hand. Whatcha doing, Ains? "Wooking fo my sisser." Oh, dear. Luckily, it was a game of hide-and-seek.
"You know how I go (grow) bigger?" How? "I exshacise." *does a surprisingly good Arnold Schwarzenneger impersonation*
Now for some from Hannah -
Hannah and Ainsley came tearing down the stairs, very involved in one of their X-Men missions. Ainsley thought she was talking to Rogue, who corrected her loudly - very loudly - and forcefully. She was, in fact, Storm. A few minutes later, they went tearing past again and Ainsley warned Rogue about Juggernaut. "I AM STOOORRRRMM!!" Twice more this happened. Then they came into the kitchen looking for a snack. "What would you like, Storm?" I asked. She looked at me in disbelief. "How did you know I was Storm?" I'm a mom. We know these things.
The other day, Hannah came dancing into the room where I was working and shouted "MOTHER, CHIHUAHUAS ARE SO CUTE!!! I LOVE CHIHUAHUAS! THEY HAVE THE CUTEST EARS AND CURLY TAILS AND THEY NEVER GROW BIG!" I asked her to please take out her ipod earbuds before she 'talked' to me. I was nearly deaf from her joyous exclamation. She just grinned and went dancing off singing 'Mamma Mia'.
