Six Word Saturday...Sept 4

My six words for today are:

This chick is getting ready to fly!

My granddaugter Madison is about to embark on a new adventure--she's going to preschool!

She will begin the day after Labor Day, and will be attending two days a week, for three hours. It

may not sound like much to most people, but for a child who has stayed close by her mother's

side for the past 3 years, 10 months, and 11 days, it's her first time "leaving the nest"! I hope she

has a smooth "flight"!

Blogger In Training...

The other day I was sitting on the couch, blogging on my laptop. I looked across the living room, and there was granddaughter, Madison, sitting at her princess table--working on her toy computer.

She also has a toy camera, and lately I've noticed her "snapping" a lot of pretend photographs.

I think she looks a lot like a "future blogger", what do you think? Notice those little fingers upon the keyboard...I love it!

Children And Noisy Toys...

Have you ever noticed that the toys that kids love the best are the ones that make the most noise? Why is that? It's been that way since the beginning of time...

Have you ever noticed that kids always want to play with those noisy toys when there is something on television that you really would like to hear?

The other night Cade was visiting us during an episode of "Big Brother". He was playing with the Handy Manny toolbox--the noisiest toy in the house--and also his favorite toy in the house.

I took the toolbox from Cade and tried to find the off switch. I failed to find it. My husband took the toolbox, found the switch on the bottom, then turned the toolbox off.

Cade wasn't having any of that...He took the toolbox, promptly flipped it over, and turned the switch back on! So much for outsmarting that little man! Oh...and we had no clue what was being said on "Big Brother". Thank goodness for DVR's!

Phineas And Ferb...

These two "partners in crime" were visiting me at the same time the other day, when I took this photograph. When I downloaded the photographs on my computer, I realized what was playing on the television in the background--Phineas and Ferb!
I'm not sure that I agree with this viewing choice, but Phineas and Ferb have become Madison's new favorite show. Gone are Dora, Diego, and Handy Manny--Hello Phineas and Ferb! What an annoying show(to me anyway)!
I sat down and watched a few minutes of this show the other day, and discovered that it could very well have been about my three children when they were growing up! Brandy, my oldest, was forever tattling on her two younger brothers--who were always doing something that they shouldn't!
One day, when Brandy had tattled for what seemed like the 100th time, I just told her "You don't have to see everything!" She thought I was terrible for saying that then, but now that she's a mother herself, she better understands. If she was a mother of three, she'd understand even better!
So here's to looking the other way every now and just makes life easier sometimes!

Kids Say The Darndest Things...

The photograph above is of my husband's younger brother. He is our granddaughter, Madison's great uncle. I didn't realize it before, but I guess Madison had never seen her great uncle --until yesterday. If she had seen him, she sure didn't remember him.

When Madison and her mama came over to our house yesterday afternoon, my husband, and his brother were sitting on the couch having a serious conversation about their mother. Madison took one look at the two of them, got a strange look on her face then quickly turned to her mama, and quietly asked "Mama, is that Jesus that "E" is talking to?" ("E" is what Madison calls my husband)

Oh my goodness! We didn't see that one coming! My daughter quickly shuffled Madison off to the kitchen, and tried to keep her composure while she explained to Madison "No, that's not Jesus in the living room talking with "E."

I have included a photograph of Madison's great uncle so you can understand why she would ask such question...He does resemble our modern day pictures of Jesus, doesn't he? And Madison has been learning all about Jesus... Once again, "Kids say the darndest things!"
