the magic show

Hey, remember how my daughter likes to test the limits in local language laws and find out what words can be said, and which ones shouldn't be said - ever - even when the parental units crack a quick giggle smirk before handing out a warning or a reprimand?  Yes, well, one must find the humour and love the mouth on three, because three be a wily one.

Picture it, just after dinner, Gigi plans a magic show for her dad, allowing mom to sneak off and do some laundry (oh to have my own washer and dryer... and dishwasher... and maid but if I had to choose one, I'll take the washer and never return to the building's basement laundry ever again).

ANYHOW, if you are still awake after reading my boring lifestyle challenges:  Gigi planned a magic show and even set up chairs for her audience (stage: her bed).  She put on many shows, turning every thing (or so it seemed) in her room into something else, it was apparently an amazing show (I missed it but did hear the dialogue - which was also an amazing show and YES I'm getting there).

At one point during the show, apparently during the audience interaction segment (she's really organized folks), SB decided to ask G about the doll she was holding on stage.  She told him it was her daughter, so he inquired as to her daughter's name.


Gigi gave a sly look and softly said "As*y".  SB asked for clairification, to which she decided to not risk a warning and replied "Bassy".  She then proceeded to laugh and laugh and laugh.  And so did her dad.

I really hope she doesn't pull these stunts at nursery school.  I really, really hope she doesn't (oh you know she does but the denial ain't just a river in Eygpt ya' know).

Snicker. The humour is, I suspect, inherited. But oh my is she ever the clever little puss.

I love this girl!

The other day, I was in the car with my 11 year old, and there was a song on the radio with the word 'damn' in it. My son was all, "Is this song saying one of the words I'm not supposed to say."

"Damn right it is," I said.

But you know the kid was TOTALLY thinking the word "damn" in his head.

why is it that even though we KNOW it's wrong, we can't help but laugh when they do these things?

Hmmm. I wonder where she gets that quick wit.

ok, so I stopped reading at the part about you having laundry in your home. I needed to go and cry and keep myself from drinking the bottle of TIDE. The bottle that is sitting next to my LAUNDRY CARD...

when I stop sobbing, and get over my jealousy, I will finish this post...

(damn, laundry, right in your very own home...you are one lucky as*)

NOOOOOOOOO I don't have laundry in my home - I live in an apartment building and I am currently sitting next to my laundry card too. WEEP WITH ME, WEEP!

You keep on hoping, hon. Because my boys have informed me that they have told countless "dirty" jokes (as dirty as a 1st and 4th grader know. Mostly about b*lls and such) at school. But I didn't feel quite as bad when I heard all of the lovely songs they learned at recess...

Really, quite lovely interpretations of traditional Christmas songs...

My six year old has a problemn with damn it. I've caught her a few times. She'll drop something on the floor and just whisper "damn it". After I snicker under my breath, I remind her it's not a nice word to say.

Assy is a cute name for a kid. Maybe I'll name my next child that.

I have an intensely patriotic daughter...actually she just likes flags. When she was younger she'd scream each time she saw one: "Oh, oh! Mama, look, its a FAG!"
