Too Big For Her Boots

My daughter is now officially too big for her boots. I was getting ready to go out the other day, and as usual I was running late. Thaïs couldn’t decide whether she wanted to go along with me, and as usual she waited till the last minute to make up her mind.
So I said to her, “You’d better hurry up and get dressed. Don’t delay me any further or else I’ll get really mad.”
To which she replied, “Mummy, you won’t get mad, you’re already mad!”
I’ve always preferred short hair. To put it differently, I don’t like long hair. As soon as it reaches a certain length, I run to my hairdresser, said length being not more than 2 1/2 inches.
Thaïs has never seen me with long hair (yes, I did grow my hair ONCE.. a long time ago) so when I (jokingly) said that I was going to grow my hair, her initial reaction was to laugh it off. Then, when she saw I was serious she said, “You can’t grow your hair long.. it’s so short and it never looks combed. What's going to happen when it's long?”

What Did You Say? – 8

It’s been a while since I last wrote a ‘What Did You Say?’ post. Here are some recent howlers, courtesy of my darling daughter:

  • Thaïs’ most recent favorite program is ‘Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grater’
  • During this season, since she can’t go out to play everyday because of the rain, she likes to sit in front of the TV with a bowl of ‘potcorn’ or ‘marshbellows’
  • Her current favorite storybook is ‘Jack And The Beanstop’
  • Her current TV hero is ‘Hairy Potner’ (Harry Potter)
  • When I’m driving, if it happens to rain she insists on switching on the wipers to ‘clean the drizzlings on the windscream’
  • And finally, like all kids, she loves to splash about in the rain – with her raincoat and ‘protector of the head’ (a.k.a. hood)

Driving Miss Bean

This is proof that my daughter watches too much TV. :) Mr. Bean, in particular…

My daughter doesn’t normally play with dolls. At the toy store, she generally heads straight for the cars and bikes and such. The only doll she owns is the Barbie doll featured in this post, which was a gift on her 4th birthday. After seeing what she did to it, I’m glad she doesn’t have any others…

As if that wasn’t painful enough…

Or maybe, this is her idea of body art??
