Addie sings

Have I ever mentioned that Addie sings? No I mean she does it ALL the time. It seems as though she got Michael's genes and is doomed to always have a song stuck in her head. She may grow to hate this curse but I gave grown to adore it.

I'm sure you've seen the scene from When Harry Met Sally, with Meg Ryan's orgasm clip. Yes? Of course you have.

Now imagine driving the girls to school and the radio show plays that clip.

... and of course the girls copied it.

Umm... Yeah.... Can you say AWKWARD???

Bun Bun Theft

Somehow the topic of strangers breaking into our house to steal some of our things came up and it had Ellie quite concerned.

Ellie: But Mommy, I don't want them to come into our house because then they will take all of our treasures.
Mommy: That's why we lock our doors so they can't come in.
Ellie: But what if they still get in?
Mommy: That would be sad, but luckily everything they take we can get replaced.
Ellie: Not our most special treasures! Not Bun Bun!
Mommy: And not our photos, but usually when people steal stuff from a house they steal things like the TV or jewelry because theyr're worth more money.
Ellie: But Bun Bun is worth the most and we can't buy new ones! I don't want Bun Bun to get stolen! Mommy, what if a robber comes in and finds Bun Bun and smells her and he sees that she smells so good and he decides he wants to keep her? Mommy, if a robber finds Bun Bun I KNOW he will take her because she smells so yummy.

Yes, apparently the same Bun Bun that she used to suck on as a pacifier, which caused it to smell mildew-like, which led to us buying 7 of them so that she could have a new freshly cleaned Bun Bun every day... Yes, apparently they have been scarred by a specific smell (though not exactly a bad one... just... distinct). And apparently that's part of what makes Bun Bun so very special. She's the only stuffed animal that "smells so good." Huh. Who would have thought?

Career in IT, perhaps?

Spoken like a true computer-wiz, when Mommy was having problems getting the audio to work in the car, Addie had a brilliant suggestion. "Maybe you should turn the car off and den turn it back on again. Maybe that would work?"
