From the Mommy Files…

Archive for October 2011

Yep, you gotta love ‘em.

Sometimes in between the tantrums, we actually get a welcome respite.


Who knew they were already nurturing their sense of humor.

Our resident 2-1/2 year old, Bebs, is exhibiting signs of a rather sarcastic sense of humor.

The other day we were driving in the car, when I mentioned something about Halloween costumes.

Bebs has insisted that she will reprise last year’s ensemble.

She wants to be Snow White once again.

This little one has refused any discussion of changing things up, even though Boo and I have opted to dress as difference princesses this year.

So we were in the car and I asked her something about what kind of shoes she wanted for her Snow White costume.

Now mind you, we have already acquired a larger Snow White costume (courtesy of a friend), a new and FANCY Snow White headband and wand that she recently picked out and we ordered.

I was so not prepared for her response.

Bebs:  What? No way, Mommy. I am not going to be Snow White this year!

Mommy: What? We already bought everything for you to be Snow White.

Bebs: Well, I’ve changed my mind. I can do that you know.

Mommy: What?

Bebs: Yeah, Mom. I thought it would be really fun if I dressed up as Jasmine instead. So let’s go get some Jasmine stuff.

Mommy: You have got to be kidding me!

Bebs: Gotcha! You know Snow White is my favorite. No way I am changing. Ha ha ha!

Well, I sure didn’t expect that.

This morning, we took Boo to school and were walking back to our car. Here’s how it went.

Bebs: Mom, I showed YiaYia (grandma) Bessie my Hello Kitty lipstick.

Mommy: Do you mean Kyria (Mrs.) Bessie at school? YiaYia Bessie went to Heaven, Sweetie. We won’t get to see her anymore.

My great aunt, who the girls know fairly well, passed away recently.

Bebs: I know Mommy. I called Heaven and I took care of it.

Mommy: You called Heaven, really? Did you get to talk to anyone?

Bebs: I said, I called and took care of it. I can’t tell you about that.

Mommy: Why not?

Bebs: These are secret things between princesses and angels.

Mommy: Was it a good talk?

Bebs: Yes.

Mommy: What did you talk about?

Bebs: Mommy!

Mommy: Come on, I want to know what they said. Did you call YiaYia Bessie or YiaYia Mary (her grandmother) or Christouli (Jesus)?

She giggled, and I knew something was coming.

Bebs: Well, Heaven says I am the best Snow White and nothing else. You will be Sleeping Beauty and Boo will be Belle.

Mommy: I don’t think Heaven told you that!

Bebs: Gotcha Mommy! You wanted me to tell you something, and when I talk to Heaven, I can’t tell, so don’t ask me anymore.

She’s 2-1/2!

Well, I guess there are worse places she could be calling.

I’m glad she’s conferring with the Man Upstairs and the Heavenly Hosts.

Hope that will continue.

Good thing those calls are free!

Can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!
