A Little Bit of This & That

The Random Things We Love to Make and Do

Skylarism – Multilingualism April 19, 2012

Filed under: Skylarisms — Lizz @ 10:59 am

While hanging out with the neighbors last night, this funny little exchange happened:

.

Skylar: Adios!!

.

Neighbor #1: No hablo español.

.

Skylar: Huh?

.

Neighbor #2: He’s saying he doesn’t speak Spanish.  It’s a joke.

.

Skylar: Oh!  Was that French?

Thank you Skylar, for making me laugh on a daily basis.

Gluten Free Friday / Skylarism October 7, 2011

Filed under: Friday in Photos,Skylarisms — Lizz @ 4:30 pm

I thought it would be fun to mash-up two of my favorite regular posts for today. So today I have for you a GFFriday with a Skylarism (something funny/awesome that comes out of my daughter’s mouth).  Here you go:

 

(7:15 am)

.

Me: “Skylar…it’s time to get up.”

.

Skylar: (mumbling) “5 more minutes…”

.

(5 minutes later…okay maybe 10 minutes)

.

Me: “Skylar…it’s time to get up.”

.

Skylar: “I can’t wake up because I have Celiac Disease.”

.

I’m pretty sure the laughter that burst out of me got her right out of bed. 

.

Then we had a chat about how Celiac Disease will not disrupt anything in her life outside of food.  So no, you cannot use it as an excuse to sleep in, get out of cleaning your room, or extend your curfew (in the future).

.

Wish me luck everyone!

Skylarism – What Pockets Are For June 30, 2011

Filed under: Skylarisms — Lizz @ 2:28 pm

Skylar: “It’s too bad these pants don’t have pockets.”

Me: “Why do you need pockets?”

Skylar: “So I can put things in there that I find.”

Me: “Like what?”

Skylar: “You know….like jewels.”

Me: “You find jewels? What are you?  A pirate?”

Skylar:  “Arrr!” (Complete with one eye closed and a swinging fist)

.

I am now the proud mama of a jewel finding, fist swinging, one eye’d pirate! Yarr!

Skylarism – Cops VS. Police June 20, 2011

Filed under: Skylarisms — Lizz @ 3:25 pm

Skylar was playing with her dad the other day, and I asked them what they were up to.  He informed me that he was the “bad guy” and was infact “in jail”. (This game is played pretty often in our family)  So I thought I’d get the rest of the story…

.

Me: “You locked up Daddy, huh?  Does that mean you’re the cops?”

.

Skylar (completely insulted): “I am not the cops!!”

.

(questioning looks exchanged between adults)

.

Skylar: (In an explanatory tone) I am the police.

.

Me: (cannot respond through laughing)

.

I didn’t realize there was any difference between the cops and police, but according to my 6 year old, there definately is!  Maybe she was talking about The Police:

.

.

Have a wonderful (cop-free) week!

Skylarism – Smoking Stinks! March 31, 2011

Filed under: Skylarisms — Lizz @ 1:29 pm

Skylar and I exited a store last night, and one of the employees was standing right by the door smoking a cigarette.  This is a pet peeve of mine, because not only is smoking hazardous to your health (and gross), it looks bad to represent your company with a cancer stick dangling from your mouth.  (okay, I’ll get off my soapbox now…) Skylar had this to say about it:

.

Skylar:  “What’s that smell?”  (Pinches her nose) “It smells like skunk!” (pause) “And bologna!”

.

That’s my girl!

.

Have a lovely, smoke/skunk/bologna free day!

Skylarism – Shake like a… January 28, 2011

Filed under: Skylarisms — Lizz @ 11:47 am

The other day while getting towel-dried after her shower, Skylar was shaking with cold (a little too dramatically). Then she hit me with this cute little phrase:

.

 Skylar: “I’m shaking like a weed!”

 .

 My response: “Hmm. Interesting. You know most people shake like a leaf. You must be extra cold to shake like a weed.”

.

 Skylar: “Yeah, definately.”

.

 I was laughing internally, and making a mental note to correct her phrase combination of “shaking like a leaf”, and “growing like a weed”. But for now I will just enjoy the moment, and anxiously wait for her to tell me to “make like a tree, and get out of here!” (and here we have a perfect reason to include a Biff montage…)

(Warning! There are a few bad words in here, so it’s probably not the best video for little ones)

Have a great weekend!
