The past few weeks have been full of the preparing for and then after care of a surgery for Q. Amid all that, we were trying to squeeze in end-of-the-year picnics at school and for Cub Scouts, while also trying to get some planning done for the first full week of summer break. I know it may be a little early for this, but so far, so good. (Hopefully I don’t kick myself for that later.)
Over the past little while, Q seems to have really kicked up her silliness. I mean, she is like the most amazingly weird person I have ever met. I have decided to share a few of her more recent Q-isms so everyone can delight in this crazy little girl.
Q: When I grow up, I want to work in a hospital.
Me: Awesome! You want to be a doctor? A nurse?
Q: No. I just want to give kids shots.
*Upon making Worms in Dirt*
Me: *taking a picture* Alright, babies. Give me your best wormy smile. Q, what’s with that face?
Q: *Dead pan* Worms don’t smile.
Well, she wasn’t wrong.
*Singing along to Disney tunes*
Q: Mommy, sing! Why did you stop?
Me: I don’t know the words.
Q: Yes, you do.
Me: Sweetheart, no one really knows the words to Circle of Life.
Q: Can I make up words?
Me: That can be dangerous territory, my love.
Q: Let’s just skip it.
Forever my backseat DJ.
*Upon listening to Dolly Parton in the van*
Q: Mom! Turn it off. I hate it.
Me: Seriously? But, but…
Q: I no longer like music.
Such harsh criticism from a five year old.
Q: Mommy, what’s wrong? Why are you sick?
Me: I’m not sick. I just have the hiccups.
Q: Should we talk about rainbows? Will that make them go away?
Me: Absolutely, girlfriend. Let’s talk about rainbows.
Because rainbows always make everything better.
For those of you who know her, isn’t this just so totally her? And for those of you who don’t know her, you’re definitely missing out. 🙂
