Brusha, Brusha, Brusha, Do the daily Brusha!
McCall LOVES to brush her teeth while she looks at herself in the mirror. This little ritual takes place each day along with talking/looking at herself in the TV while its off. Perhaps she is a little vein!?!
We live in western Pennsylvania and I am still the "Hero Support" to my husband and kids. John and I have been married for 13 1/2 years, HOLY COW! and we have two amazing, fun and fabulous kids that keep me busy and always laughing! In Dec we are going to double our fun when our twin boys are born! I love being a stay at home mom and wouldn't have it any other way! I'm obsessed with high school and college basketball and March Madness is my favorite time of the year!
10/23/07: McCall came to me in a panic and said "Mom I've got nose on my binki!" She had just sneezed and gotten boogers on her binki.
10/07: We were sitting at the dinner table eating and Broc asked John "Dad do you get to color at your school?" John explained that there just wasn't enough time at his school to color. Then Broc asked "Dad are there girls in you class?" It was funny to see Broc trying to process the difference between his and John's schools.
11/07: McCall is obsessed with Temples. This is a conversation that we frequently have with her. McCall where are you getting married: In the Temple When are you getting married: When I'm 25 Who are you going to marry: A handsome prince, a returned missionary! What are you going to wear: A white princess dress
2/08: John had given McCall a quarter and a nickel to put in her purse. One morning she came to me in a panic and said "I have my quarter, but I can't find my pickel!" I couldn't understand what she meant, a pickel? Then she showed me the quarter and said, "I can't find my pickel!" I said, "your nickel?" and she replied, "Yes, my pickel."
3/10: We were sitting in church during Sacrament Meeting and McCall was sitting with Barb and Shannon Huey(Her best friends at church) Barb pulled out some pictures of Temples and was showing them to her when McCall shouts "It's the Golden Dome" pointing to the dome on the Nauvoo Temple.
3/10/08: Broc had just gotten home from school and was looking for a snack. McCall started to whine that she to needed a snack so I asked John to help her. John asked her what she needed and she looked at him and said: "I want a snack you idiot!" John immediatly sent her to her room and tried not to laugh. We still can't figure out where she got the word idiot.
3/19/08 : We had just gotten to Nauvoo and from the back seat Broc says: "Oh, this is where they filmed Star Wars, you know Nabo" and then he starts humming the Star Wars theme song. We all burst into laughter and explained that this was Nauvoo not Nabo
3/08: A very nice women told McCall that she was a beautiful girl and McCall reponded "Yes I am." No trouble with self esteem there!
3/25/08: McCall and I were shopping and we were at the check out to return some things. I didn't buy anything so as we went to leave McCall said "Mom you need to color your name on this" and she pointed to the credit card machine.
3/27/08: I asked the kids if they wanted Chicken Enchiladas or Chicken Puffs for dinner tonight. McCall said, "I want Chickeladas, meaning Chicken Enchiladas." For the rest of the night she refered to them as "Chickeladas." Pretty clever I thought!
4/9/08: McCall was playing super hero and trying to catch the bad guys. She grabbed my hand and said "Mommy, you are under "durrest." Meaning that I was under arrest.
4/14/08: For much of this past year Broc has referred to our apartment as our "Compartment." We have corrected him on several occasions but to no avail. Again today he used that term and I just had to laugh.
4/14/08: Recently McCall has been infatuated with small fluffys or rather tiny lint balls. Maybe it is because we saw "Dr Seuss's, Horton hears a who" last week. Anyway she collects them and then tells us that they are her "Fluffy Firends." Tonight she crawled up to snuggle with me before she went to bed and she had a teny tiny ball of toilet paper. I asked her what she had and she said "It's my toilet fluffy friend."
