At bed time, Maddie has decided that she wants me to sing new songs to her that she doesn't know.

I can remember when I was younger, I had my own record player and records (does that make me old?) with tons of songs on both sides that I would play over and over in my room. That was always so much fun for me.

I have tried to recall these songs, but I just can't remember all of them. Plus, most of them are the songs that kids are still taught in school today. (i.e. "The Hole in the Bottom of the Sea" & "There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly", etc...)

So, I've resorted to the fabulous Mary Poppins. Maddie's two favorites are:
"A Spoon Full of Sugar" and
(as sung by Maddie herself) "Superfralicagilisticgetmeoutofdocious"
In Maddie's own words, "I am NOT kidding"

While bathing the girls this evening, the conversation went down like this:

Me: Maddie, repeat after me. Brother is sleeping.
Maddie: Brother is sleeping.
Me: What does that mean?
Maddie: What does that mean?
Me: what does it mean?
Maddie (smiling and with a giggle): Be quiet...?

She gets it AND she's funny. Oh, how I love her...I must not be doing too bad at this Mommy thing.


  1. i just love that she tackled such a big word!! you are certainly doing something right!!!

  2. Too cute! It sounds to me like you are doing a great job at the momma thing :)
    Happy POW!

  3. Sounds like you're doing it right AND you're having fun doing it.

    Happy POW!

  4. Love her version of that super long word. Sounds like you're doing great job.

    I had records too and I do think that means we're old but I am not admitting to it.

  5. Oh yes, I remember those records!

    And yes, I think you are doing a pretty good job!
    Happy POW

  6. Love it! I love hearing what kids say. I never seem to remember the funny phrases mine come up with.

  7. Looks like her witty humor is shaping up nicely!!

  8. Very cute! I love the things kids say. Happy POW!
