For the past week or so I've been gathering "Abby-isms" until I got enough for a blog post. After today, I think I finally met my quota. So enjoy them, I hope they make you laugh - they certainly did us.

While riding in the car to go shopping, I was singing some silly song about going to the store. After Abby stopped howling like Bruiser I heard her laugh and say, "Mom, you're a goofball." Nice.

Mom: How do you make a tissue dance? [pause] You put a little boogie in it!
Abby: Rooster [pause] A duck! [hysterical laughing] (?????)

On another car trip I was sitting in the back with Abby and she suddenly turned to me and said, "Rock the Casbah!" What!?!

BJ's #1 Fan
On yet another car trip we were skipping through a playlist and landed on Billy Joel's "I Go to Extremes". Abby started singing along - and knew all the words. We have no idea how she knows that song, but she wanted to hear "Extremes" over and over again. Hmmmm......

Tonight when we told her that we were going to put on a funny show (America's Funniest Home Videos) she said, "Okay, where people get hurt." Um....yep, I guess she nailed that one.

Snack Time
This afternoon she told me she was hungry.
Mom: You have three choices: banana, yogurt, or applesauce.
Abby: Ummm [tapping her finger to her chin] Let's ' popsicle.

I finally got around to really straightening up our bedroom. This afternoon Abby came in while I was finishing and she exclaimed, "Wow! What happened here? It's all clean! Good job, Mom." Yikes! Apparently I need to clean more often.

These are only a smattering of the funny things this kid says. I love how much she is talking and coming up with such creative and fun things - all on her own. For years now her personality has shown through in her actions and her spirit, but now we are starting to get a bit of that sassiness in her words - and it's lovely. I'm sure I missed a few of her zingers, and will probably remember about five of them once I've sent my post, but I think you get the idea. Once again, Abby is a blast, and you never know what's going to come out of her mouth.

Abby wanted to wear the towel like Mama.
The thing was, it was too heavy, and so she needed
her hands to help bear the weight!

Now really....I ask you...who's the real goofball?

  1. Ciena tries to wrap her towel around her head like she sees me too. It's cute. :) Love the pictures.
