Like any mother of a five year old, I hear some pretty hilarious things come out of my kiddo’s mouth. Take last week, for instance. It was picture with Santa day at preschool so Ava had on her pretty red holiday dress complete with black patent high-heeled shoes.
When I bought her these shoes, she squeeled like I had just presented her with some Jimmy Choo’s. On this particular day, I got her all prettied up and we headed off for preschool. As we walked to her class, we passed an infant room. In the window, two very sad little girls where watching us walk by, crying very loudly.
“Mama, I know why those babies are crying,” Ava says.
“Oh yeah, why?” I innocently ask her.
“Because they don’t have high heels like I do.” Badump bump ching…
Yeah, she’s quite clearly my kid. Sassy and a smart ass all rolled up into a pint-sized package. Man, do I love her.
So, after this exchange, I went to my car and thought about how I should be chronicling these hilarities. They seem to happen on a daily basis and some make me laugh so hard I almost pee. Others, like her existential discussion with me about God the other day, make me really want to file these away so she can read them later. I guess I can continue to put them on the blog, but some are so little that they may not warrant an entire post. I do occasionally tweet them. However, there isn’t a good way to archive tweets yet (hello nerdpreneurs!)
This all leads me to ask you, how do you chronicle the incredible things that your kids say? Do you write them somewhere, blog them or drop them on Facebook? I would love to hear about it and I would also love some tips on how I can keep track of our silly exchanges.
