Hershey Muffin

While at Hershey Park Charlotte had the chance to pose with a number of Hershey candy characters.

"I don't want to pose with the muffin (referring to the Reese's Cup which sorta looks like a muffin) or any other one of them. It scares me that I want to eat them."


Benjamin was sitting on the floor near the kitchen whining a bit and Charlotte was stroking his chin.

"Are you frustrated? Did you bonk your head on the table?"

Ah, to capture these moments.

Wasn't Me

Last Thursday, David picked the kids up from preschool and stopped at Chik-fil-a for a milkshake. Charlotte and I usually get one on Fridays on the way home.

"You can't blame me for getting the shake. Daddy decided to get it. When two people are in the car and one stops to get a shake it is that persons fault."

I was completely silent lest I laugh too hard!

When I'm 64

"When you are the Savta to my children... will you still look like you do?"
What a profound question and then I could only think of this answer.

"My hair may be more white than it is now."

"Charlotte, please come to the table for snack."
"Unfortunately, I'm in the middle of something. I'll be right there."

Wonder where she heard that word?
Any ideas? Please let me know.

Trying to Use a New Vocabulary Word

Do I use this word often? I remember when "actually" was an important word to be maneuvered into a sentence at every turn. Last night during bath time Charlotte tried to pick the perfect spot to insert the word "evidently". I'm not even sure what the sentence was amidst the shrieks of bath time play but I heard it and so did David from the kitchen.

Body Parts

A while ago Charlotte decided that the underarm should be called "underpit".
So, if your underarm is your underpit, what is the part behind your knee?
"UNDERLEG" of course!

Do you want to be?

I'm sitting on the couch watching Charlotte play with her friend G while her mom A and I talk.
Charlotte approaches with a small ball and I think she is going to toss it to me.

"Do you want to be the net?"
I guess she meant basket but the answer remains "no".

Every have a week when the complaints are just never ending.

- Did not like what was in my lunch - even though I picked it.
- Do not want to nap - even though I say I'm tired.
- Want some snack now - even though I just had snack at school.

The list seems never ending and it is just a bunch of complaints for the sake of complaining.

Actually and Unfortunately

Actually there was a pause in my writing, unfortunately.
Well, I'm back and for good this time. Too much to miss out on if I don't write it all down.

Remember when Charlotte love to add new vocabulary words to her normal conversation patterns? Well, now those words are just popping up and I have not even used them. She's getting this new vocab from her teachers I guess. The word of the day had once been "actually".

Today, her Darling father and I packed leftover pierogies for lunch with a bit of ketchup in a baggie slipped into the princess Tupperware item.

Charlotte alerted me that "unfortunately, my teacher could not find the ketchup so I only ate part of my lunch."

Again, I wanted to jump up and down repeating the word "unfortunately" but I held back. Goodness, I love to hear her speak.
