I Have No Idea What She's Talking About

Alexis and I had a bit of a girl's night out this evening, and while I thought we had a pretty good time, I'm not all that sure Alexis felt the same. As we were nearing our neighborhood, we had this conversation in the car:

Alexis: We watch Bug's Life.
Me: No, we're not watching Bug's Life. No TV tonight.
Alexis: Yes, TV is on and we watch Bug's Life.
Me: No, ma'am. There will be no TV tonight.
Alexis: Watch Bug's Life, silly!
Me.: Oh, no we're not, silly.
Alexis: No, you silly!
Me: You're sillier.
Alexis: No, you sillier!
Me: You're the silliest.
Alexis: No, you're the silliest.
Me: Nope, you're the silliest.
Alexis: Momma, you're a mess.

Just a reminder, we're donating all September ad revenue to the Flight 93 Memorial Fund. Perhaps this would be a good time to check out an old post or two? How about this one?

She's gonna be just like you . . . wait, she already is.

I myself am having issues with a toddler who thinks the tv should be on all day.At least I figured out what time they changed Caillou too.If she doesn't get her Caillou fix everyday it gets ugly.

Alexis is so cute.I am glad you all had a girls night.Funny how she said your a mess.Haha.

If you're a mess, I shudder to think what she would say about me!
P.S. What did she wear today? It's getting cooler. You might have to hide all the sundresses!

Hilarious! One time driving to the park, my daughter (2 at the time) jusmped out of the van and said, "Mommy, your driving is bad news!"

Oh she is too funny! I love it when my girls call me CRAZY!

September 12, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAmy

Oh, dear Lord! That is too funny. And I respectfully decline to comment on its validity . . . or lack thereof.

September 12, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterFishsticks and Fireflies

Yeah, where did she hear that one? I'm guessing it was not the first time someone called you a mess... I know I've called myself that a few times.

These kids. They are funny!

September 12, 2008 | Unregistered Commentercaramama

Yes, but are you a hot mess? Because all too often, that's exactly what I am...

Oh, I love that kid of yours!!!

September 12, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKathryn

She is so ready for a blog.

September 12, 2008 | Unregistered Commentertexasholly

LOL.... I agree, I think she is sooooo ready for her own blog. She does have a good argument.

A bugs life is awesome.

September 12, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterOHmommy

Oh my.

The fun you have ahead. No, really. It will be fun. Trust me.

September 13, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterCheri @ Blog This Mom!

I'm scared what my kid is going to say about me when he can string together full sentences!


September 13, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterJenn

I have taken to dismantling the tv and computer, ie, taking out important cables and such so as to limit their usage. Good luck!

September 13, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterShellie

My kids are deprived. We have an antenna and analog tv reception on the 2 tv's. Only my new pc has a digital tuner. It gets 6 stations right now, as the rotator motor on my antenna is broken and needs to be replaced.

The best thing about my new pc running Vista is the parental controls. You can set up each child's account to determine what time periods they are allowed to log in-say between 3 pm and 8 pm and how long they are allowed to use it. Once they reach their time limit, the pc logs them out and displays a message that they can not log in now due to limitations on the computer and to see the administrator-AKA mom.

September 13, 2008 | Unregistered Commentermommeeof9

Haha! Alexis is my favorite toddler ever, I think.

September 13, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAllison Says

Oh, just wait! She's gonna learn the phrase "I'll freak out!" soon, and then I'd like to see you keep a straight face!

September 15, 2008 | Unregistered Commentermumple

Well, at least she knows what she's talking about! ;)
