She Who Talks Non-Stop

Here are some words of wisdom from Pensens Ayame.

It was nap time.  Not only were the kids NOT napping, they were horsing around.  So I walked in their room and caught them both goofing off.  I put on my “serious Mommy” face, used a stern voice and said, “Its nap time, not play time.”  Ayame then gave me a sweet smile and said, “You’re so pretty Mommy.  Pretty dress.  You a pensens?”  CLEARLY trying to distract me.  When I continued to scold them she started petting my dress and said, “Dress has flowers.  So nice!”  GAH!!!  I tucked them both in again and left the room and started giggling as soon as I shut the door.

More from yesterday:

“G is for Brapes!”

“Mommy, I want a mow-mowln!!!”  Do you have any idea how much time I spent showing her everything she owned, hoping it was a mow-mowln???  Do you?  Finally overcome with frustration, she grabbed an alphabet book, showed me the page for W, pointed to a WATERMELON and said, “Here.  Mow-Mowln.”  DUH.  Of course.

While on the swing set:  “I’m pensens!  This my castle!”

This morning, while “reading” The Tale of Peter Rabbit:  “And then… the mommy wabbit likes berries… and then mommy wabbit likes the bakset. And then the bunny got stuck in the water. Then its bed time. BE END!”

In Reevie news… he is trying to say Banana!  Except it comes out as “Ah-nana!”

More Signs of Spring

Let’s ignore the fact that we are back to running the heater at night and focus on these little pretties.

I got this house plant as a Christmas present one year.  It was part of a dish garden.  The other plants have since dropped dead, but this one is growing well.  I’ve taken it apart and re-potted a section.

I don’t know what this plant is, but it looks pretty!

The peonies are growing, growing, growing!



The bees LOVE the rhodies.  Ayame said, “Mommy!  So many beeses!”

So Excited!

They make not look like much right now, but these will be AMAZING peonies soon!  I can’t wait!

The rhododendron is still blooming like crazy.  I hope the flowers stay for a long time.  I love seeing them from the kitchen window.

Summer Sneak Peak

It was 88F yesterday.  Summer was giving us a little sneak peak I think.  It got unbearably hot inside the house, so I dressed the kids “light” and we played outside.

I have no idea what this plant is, but I love the flowers!

Who Told Her To Grow Up So Fast?
