Frozen fruit is good but...

Sigh.I have nothing against frozen fruit as long as it's from the freezer. I have a problem when I go into the refrigerator section and my fresh fruit (and everything else) is frozen. Iced blueberries, strawberries, ice milk. The gadget queen is always on the move. Anything that can be turned in our house has been turned, everything that can be pressed has been pressed...including me. I have a very curious child. A couple years ago she stuffed so many CDs into our compact disc player that we had to pry it open with a screwdriver. She did this in my car, too. Once, she placed a little plastic doll on top of the lightbulb in her bedroom lamp. I smelled a burning odor. When I checked her bedroom the doll's underpants had already burned off. Another time she took a pan and put a plastic lid in it and stuck it in the oven. When I preheated the oven for our supper that night....EWWW! The whole place stunk! The plus side of all this is that at least she doesn't blame the dog anymore.

Once you tell her not to do certain things anymore she stops. The problem is....she comes up with ideas that never occur to me. Electronics have a short shelf-life here. She's smart though, "I'm more important than STUFF anyways, Mommy....right?"

Yes, sweetheart, you are.

  1. Of course, she is more important than stuff. And at least she did not burn down your bathroom. My son did that once -- in a moment of curiosity. (Longish story.)

  2. I think this is how my guardian angel feels about the way I sin. :-(

    (Word verification is CRIES, which is perfect, just perfect.)

  3. Yup. She is smart. Kids have a great way of asking just the right question at the right time eh?
    :)
    God bless!

  6. Jane,
    AHHH...I often feel bad for my guardian angel. He's been through a lot, poor guy. Probably didn't even have a choice who he got stuck with;)
    I'm sure "cries" is a good word for me, too.

  7. Elizabeth,
    Seriously? I hope you had more than 1 bathroom in your house ;) I have had a few close calls here but no actual fires. I'm glad she knows her worth...my entire stained carpets and crayola colored walls speak of it.

  8. Colleen,
    Yes, they are smart! She has even nudged me to pray when I'm grumpy :) She "pleasantly suggested" that I pray the Mercy Chaplet.

  11. Hmmmmm, my MIL has many funny tales of her oldest son . . . whom I married. We all just laugh and laugh at all the "horrible" things little Danny-boy did as a tot! One I will share: stuffing his baby sister in a moving box and rolling her down the stairs (in the box). Okay another: greasing the same sister up with vaseline, then, after she was cleaned up, dumping a whole container of baby powder on her. Yes, there are many many more! Thankfully, our three kids take after me: boring - stay out of trouble kind of kids. ;)

  13. Sarah,
    My husband and I got a good laugh at your comment! We went to lunch together and he read your comment on his Blackberry and showed it to me :) Funny!
    Good thing the kids take after you. But you certainly aren't boring - you have a great sense of humor! Your blunt humor cracks me up.
