The kids and I were in the livingroom and I had HGTV on the television. I keep that on for a couple of reasons 1) the kids won't watch too much TV 2) most of the programming on this channel is kid-safe. Now, I know that a better idea would be to just turn off the TV, but sometimes I like the background noise. Besides, it drowns the noises outside and helps keep the dog from barking.
Anyway....Maddie looked over at the TV and said, "Mommy, THAT is the floor I want!"
me: "Wood floors?"
Hailey: "But, where would we put the toys?"
me: "Uh, in the gameroom where they are now...?"
First, I'll have to investigate why wood floors means bye-bye toys. Second, I knew Maddie was a lot like me. She even has my excellent taste in flooring choices. Third, maybe she is watching more TV than I thought. Which brings me to the next Maddie story.
Maddie: "Mommy, I saw on TV that there is a blanket that you can stick your arms through and keep warm!"
me: "You mean the Snuggie?!"
Maddie: "YES! Can I get one of those?"
And I wonder...why is my child asking for such bizarre things?
