What Made Me Laugh?

What made me laugh this week?  In a word ...


Three snapshots of the sweet silliness of this girl who is growing up too fast and yet still has a way to go!  I love you Weeda Mae!


In the cuckoo-head moments before Brett got home on Monday evening, Ashley was practicing her reading by perusing the many magnets and spelling tests adorning the refrigerator door.  She prided herself on using a variety of accents to read the Princess Bride quotes posted there.

"Hallo!  My name is Inigo Montoya!" 
"As you wish..."

As Brett slipped in (leaving the arctic gusts outside), Lydia greeted her father with, "Anybody wanna peanut?!?" in a rather authentic Fezzik accent.


Riding home from the grocery, Lydia was carrying on a rather intense conversation with her baby doll. At my inquiry about a particularly curious phrase, Lydia proudly informed me, "We are speaking Spanish."  

"Aahhh ... Can you say something in Spanish for me?"

... silence for a few moments and then ...

"Cinco.  Twento."

Bien dicho, hija.


Finally, while waiting in the van at the crosswalk for the kids, Lydia pointed to an activity book filled with mazes.  "Can I do these?" she asked.

"Uh, let me see." I flipped through the first several pages of the easiest mazes and found them all completed.  "These look pretty tough.  I don't know."

"I can do it.  I can," she declared, kicking her feet impatiently.

"Okey-dokey, here ya go."  I handed the book back to her and found her a pencil.

A few minutes passed in blissful silence as she worked on her maze.  At last she declared, "I did it!"

You nailed it, Sis.  Well done.

Prompt #5 - What made you laugh this week?

Mama’s Losin’ It


  1. I have to admire her technique in completing that maze! The road less traveled!

  2. My maze would have looked like that, too. Very outside the box, or lines in this case!

  3. my kids keep my laughing. Great post.

  4. I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to do stuff like this. She's pretty funny already - I can just imagine what she'll get up to.
