Bathtub Conversations

Conversations in the bathtub . . .

Vivian: Daddy, who has a wee wee?
Justin: Why do you ask?
Vivian: Because I want to know. Who has a wee wee?
Justin: Sooooo . . . What do you think is on Nickelodeon tonight?
Vivian: I'm not sure, maybe Olivia.

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to . . .

Yesterday morning I received an email from the director of Viv's school asking me if I worked out to Richard Simmons. I immediately started laughing. Instead of emailing Tiffany back, I called to explain that I don't workout to Richard Simmon's, but Vivian goes to her Grandma B's every afternoon and they exercise to "Sweatin to the Oldies". Tiffany laughed and said that Viv asked if she could sing "It's my party and I'll cry if I want to" by Richard Simmons. Today Viv asked her teacher if she could sing Peggy Sue . . . Another Richard Simmons Sweatin to the Oldies Song . . . Tomorrow it will probably be "Gimme Some Lovin" . . .

Typical Sunday Morning

Viv wanted to make a General Hospital video this morning, but ended up putting on a Hannah Montana concert.

Friday when I got home from work I found Viv and Justin eating dinner at the table. When I saw Viv I laughed . . . .

I said, "Vivian, what is that in your hair?" She was all, "Mommmm, it's a headband, duh!"

Morning Juice

Viv informed me this week that she would like her morning juice in a mug with NO straw. She went on to explain that she is too old to be using straw - they are for babies and she is four years old.

Oh Pickles!

Viv and I were playing blocks together on the floor tonight. When one of her block towers fell . . . . .

Viv: Oh crap!
Me: Viv we don't say that.
Viv: Oh crapola!
Me: Viv we don't say that either. Those aren't nice words.
Viv: Oh GOD!
Me: Vivian you know that is not a nice word. How about 'Oh pickles'?
Viv: OH CRAP! Crapola!
Me: Viv do you want to lose your privileges? You really need to talk like a nice girl. Oh pickles!
Viv: Oh PRIVILEGES!! Mom is that a nice word?

She is eating carrots???

A couple weeks ago we received this picture of Vivian in our Family Folder at school. I couldn't believe it . . . She's eating carrots??!! It is good to know that she is getting vitamin A and beta-carotene someplace because she certainly isn't getting them at home. We try to get her to eat vegetables all the time, but she nearly gags at the sight of them. I chalk it up to school peer pressure . . .

We have a little fibbing problem . . .

Over the past weekend we noticed that Viv started fibbing a lot. The fibs are harmless, but we definitely want to teach her to tell the truth. Sometimes it's really hard not to laugh because she comes up with some good ones:

  • Fib #1. Tonight she was talking to Grandma Becky on the phone and I heard Viv tell her that she was home by herself. She explained that I was still at work and Justin was grocery shopping. Truth: Viv and I were sitting at the dining room table together and Justin was at a basketball game.
  • Fib #2. On Saturday Viv was helping me with the laundry and I asked her to put the sheets in the washer. She came running to me (crying) and said that daddy took the sheets from her and put them in the washer wrong. Truth: Justin was in the family room watching TV and had no idea what Viv was talking about.
  • Fib #3. I was taking Viv to school and all of a sudden she screams from the backseat that Hazel bit her. Truth: Hazel is her doll and she wasn't even in the car with us.
  • Fib #4 Viv helped me make lasagna for dinner tonight. As I was cleaning up she said, "I didn't take a picture of your money maker." Truth . . . .

Me: (sitting at the dining room table): Justin, what century are we in?
Justin (getting Viv ready for bed): Jenny are you kidding?
Me: No. I can't remember. Like . . . 23rd or 21st.
Justin: Jenny . . .
Me: What?
Justin to Viv: Being pretty has let her get away with this stuff for years!

Wii Fun

Not only did the Freelands join the 21st century by creating a family blog, but we also bought a Wii. We all have been having so much fun with it. I love the Wii Fit. Viv has her own Wii Fit Balance Board too . . . The bathroom scale! She is totally duped.

Dude, Where's my husband?

Justin has away games Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It will be a huge upset if his team wins on Friday against Chippewa Hills. Keep your fingers crossed.
