A Hamster on a Cloud...And Other Random Thoughts

Brenley loves to sing, as many three year olds do. And, also like other three year olds, has absolutely no desire to sing the correct words. So I will explain the above title: Kindyl is singing "Castle on a Cloud" with two other girls in her choir concert. We have been treated to a little Les Miserables around here lately. My favorite. But miss Brenley has been enamoured of a little hamster belonging to Kindyl's BFF Tangee named Bubby. Thus, around our house, "There is a Hamster on a Cloud" Are you singing it to yourself yet? Now make sure you are singing like a three year old who happens to attend speech preschool. That's right, leave off the "r"sound, and make a "W" sound instead of a "L" sound. It ends up more like a "Hamstu on a cwoud". Welcome to my world.




Are you ready for another Brenley quirk? Bren has a horribly sensitive involuntary gag reflex. She is really my only hurler around here. And recently she has an issue with a few baby things.

As I was feeding Abigail some unassuming green bean baby food I was talking to her to keep her attention up and toward the food. I think I was saying something like, "Abigail, look! I have some yummy green beans for you!" I hear Brenley coming up behind me, trying to be helpfull. She says, "Look Abigail! Eat your yummy ...blech...(and more dry heaving to follow) Poor Brenley! The sight of that green gushy stuff was too much for her. Sometimes I have her bring me a tissue for the baby. But if she actually sees the green stuff come out of her nose, she looses it. Silly girl.

Also heard recently from Brenley? "Mom! It's Happy Mother's day!" Yes she was my only child who actually gave a darn about good old Mother's Day.(More ranting on that later). The Happy Mother's Day actually lasted all week. And she was very excited about it. My three year old loves me.



Mother's Day thoughts continued later in the week. I heard Brenley singing in the shower. She does this often . Then I listened to the words. Of course, she made up her own again, as every three year old has the right to do.(or Rebecca;). She was singing:" Rain rain go away come again on Mother's Day."

The kid cracks me up. She just does.

8 people know I love comments!:

She sounds too cute for words. That is so crazy about her gag reflex! And I thought mine was bad...haha!

Camille gave me the "you are seriously disturbed" look as I was singing about the hamster on a cloud!

Funny who knows if Kefir.net really is telling the truth about all of those promises. I was wondering about the ADHD thing myself:-) I think it said you had to drink it regularly to get the results. I don't know about you but I probably won't be drinking in regularly .

All I know is that it tastes good and is one step up from yogurt on the health chain.

Hope all is well with you.

I think they are so cute when they are younger so we don't send them back when they are older. I am tempted still though...

Aww.. poor thing! That's stinks. I did start singing the Hampster on the Cloud by the way. Yeah, I listen to directions!

I think the gag reflex runs in the family...Kaylee does the same exact thing! Cade does the whole tongue spitting thing and she gags every time, he loves it. They can start a support group =)

By they, I mean Kaylee and Brenley
