Funny Flanna Quotes
Remembering how we used to sing "You are My Sunshine" and "ABCs" every night when she was tiny,
"Can we do that again? Mom, can you put a bookmark in your head so you can remember that?"
Looking at an icon of the Dormition of the Theotokos, pointing to halos around Jesus & Mary's heads,
"Why do they have helmets on their heads?"
Holding a lock of her hair that we just trimmed,
"Mom, can you put this in my baby book so one day when my hair changes color, we can look at it?"
Talking about the shirts I bought for her and her cousin to wear to her birthday party this weekend,
Flanna: "Is it a dress?"
Me: "No, they're just sparkly shirts. But we can let you wear a skirt with it."
Flanna: "But, mom, that's not a dress. I have to look willy willy pretty."
Saying goodnight at bedtime,
Flanna: "Night night, sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite--Bedbugs are real! They look like beetles, and they have hard shells."
Me: "But we don't have bedbugs at our house, so don't worry about that."
Flanna: "Cause we have a brick house, and it's strong!"
Me: "Yeah, so no bedbugs can get in here."
Flanna: (looking skeptical) "But bedbugs are tiny, and what if we have tiny holes in the wall?"
Me: "Nope, we don't have tiny holes."
Flanna: (still skeptical) "Okay. Night night, sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite! --Bedbugs are real!"
(Methinks we're going to have to change the bedbug part of the sleep routine! Thanks for the google science lesson, Daddy-o!)
Oh, and this last quote was actually by one of my speech students, but it was so cute I just had to include it! We were chatting about the fabulous cartoon Phineas and Ferb, and my student was laughing about how I was pretending to be Candace saying, "Oh, Jeremy!" Then he made a face and said,
"Some loves are gross?"
What made you laugh today?
