|Clara's Graduation from Kindergarten.|
Freya continues to perfect her Banana, Orange Knock Knock Jokes. She keeps me on my toes - changing up the punch lines.
Knock knock...Who's there? Strawberry. Strawberry who?...Aren't you glad I didn't say banana?
(I know...needs a little polishing.)
|Freya finds a worm.|
Clara has tried the old....Mom, Spell I Cup. Me: I See You Pee. (Clara bursts out laughing - "You said pee!!!!!")
She followed up with: Spell Apple.
Shrieks of laughter.
Clara: You said PEE PEE!!!!!
|So does Clara.|
But here's where her comedy starts to get more sophisticated...
The girls were taking a bath the other night, playing happily.
Clara calls out: Mom! Mom! I really need you to come in here RIGHT NOW!
I walk in expecting a mess or something.
Me: What is it?
Clara: (deadpan serious) Mom - I really need you to tell me how to spell Apple.
Freya and Clara burst out laughing.
|Clara's first recital. |
Or the other night, while trying to get them in pajamas, both girls spontaneously create a new song to the tune of Frere Jacques -
"We're not sleeping! We're not sleeping! We're awake! We're awake!"
|Freya in the playground.|
Freya has also invented a dance she calls the "Ouchee Chihuahua Dance" which involves her dancing around her room, preferably unclothed, while sort of galloping and slapping her own butt while shouting: "Ouchee Chihuahua! Ouchee Chihuahua!"

We have a lovely babysitter named Alisha that the kids adore - she's very bohemian and is currently sporting blue hair. She shared this conversation with Freya that she had the other day:
Freya: Alisha, you have poop on your arm.
Alisha: No I don't.
Freya: Yes you do Alisha, you have poop on your arm.
Alisha: Show me this supposed poop.
Freya points to Alisha's armpit - rocking the unshaved look.
Alisha: That's not poop. That's hair. I have hair there just like I have hair on my head.
Freya: Nooo...Alisha, poop isn't blue. You're silly.
|Fun in the sun.|
Thanks girls for keeping our conversations lively and fun.
