Moments with Maggie


So this just happened:

We're sitting on the couch.
Maggie is playing with my phone.
I'm checking facebook.
I'm singing "Look Down" from Les Miz
You know...just serenading my kid with some musical theatre classics.
Who DOESN'T do that?
Maggie very irritated says:
"Would you please just shush!?"
I chuckled and said.
"Wow Maggie, how do you REALLY feel."
She replied.
"GRUMPY."
And then looked up at me with a face to match.

I laughed for a good long time.

I TOLD you people.
SASS!

I shall heretofore refer to her as Oscar the Grouches apprentice.

Grumps and grouses,

Allyson

so funny. Scarlett went throught his phase where as soon as I started signing she would holller, "There's NO singing anymore!!!" luckily it passed. Now she likes it when I sing. She'll say, "great job mom" or "that was a nice song, mom", and my ego is grateful for her change of heart as she is my only audience!

LOVE that face! i don't sing (mainly because i care about my kids' ears and their wellbeing!) but occassionally i'll throw down in the kitchen and actually cook something.....and alot of times i'll get "ewwwww mommmy....this is gross!" out of hannah. i'm wondering at what age they'll develop a filter on what they say???? i called her "sassypants" the other day and she got all offended by it.....i told her "well, if the shoe fits" and she looked at me all sassypantsish and said, "mahhhhhma, i'm not WEARING any shoes". sheesh. point definitely not taken!

Wouldn't it be hysterically ironic if your kids couldn't stand musical theatre music and only wanted rap or hip hop? :)

I think my 2 yr old is beginning to rival that sass!

That's girls for ya!
Hey--I got your message, and I commented on Rita's blog. I hope she believes me when I say that I would love to talk to her. But she doesn't know me at all, so that may be a little weird.
I told her that you could add a little insight on Tucker as well, so . . .
Whatever.
He does sound exactly like Tucker--minus the singing at the top of his lungs every second.

I love that with children you know exactly where you stand! Just stopped by from Everyday Kings...saw "Mesa" and had to check out your blog! I think we're a little bit east of you. Totally had our pictures taken at MAC too!
