Conversations with Lindy

I don't scrapbook. I didn't do a good job writing in Lindy's baby book. (BAD MOMMY!) I rely on memory and find that memories fade. I have found this blog is a great way to capture some of the funny moments that keep me laughing...This is real life, completely unscripted...

Here are some of our recent conversations.

Mommy & Lindy singing: "This little light of mine, I'm going to let it shine."
Lindy: It is silly to hide a light in a bush, Mommy.
Mommy: Well, actually, the word is bushel.
Lindy: Oh.
Mommy: When are you supposed to let your light shine?
Lindy: 5:00.

Recently I treated Lindy to a glass of chocolate milk. After she drank it at mach speed, here is what ensued...

Mommy: You look funny. You have a HUGE mustache.
Lindy: Hee hee...let me see, let me see...
Mommy: Who else do you know who has a mustache? (Expecting her to say Phil or Kevin)
Lindy: You.

Guess I'm overdue for a waxing...

With my ongoing love affair with the library, we've been bringing home a lot of Amelia Bedelia. They are as great as they were SEVERAL years ago.

Mommy to Don & Lindy: Okay, I'm going to go jump in the shower.
Daddy just shook his head because he knew EXACTLY what was about to happen...
Lindy (with hands on hips): Mommy...WE DON'T JUMP IN THE SHOWER!
Daddy: We've been through this. I got in trouble for hopping in the shower a couple days ago.

What do you think, perhaps we better ease up on the Amelia Bedelia?!

In church the other day the father of one of our friends walked in with the TALLEST cane/walking stick I've ever seen. He is probably over six feet tall and his cane was probably taller than me (5'3"). Lindy noticed him right away and asked, "Is he a shepherd?" Thankfully, she was "whispering."

As much as she can exasperate me and send me to tears, I adore this child's ability to make me laugh.

Love that outfit. I think that the ones that try our patience the most (I won't metione any names :-), are also the funniest ones.
Love her little sense of humor.

All right, the cuteness is killing me!!! The princess get-up is over the top cute. Oh, she is a trip, Lisa.

I am so happy you preserved these for all time - they are precious. My favorite is the shepherd.

Wow, Lindy just cracked me up. First of all - the socks on the hands for gloves? what a diva? I about fell out of my seat with the mustache comment, cause I can relate!!! At least she didn't say it to the bank teller or something!

Michelle said...

Lindy is such a funny girl. I loved reading her conversations. What a cutie!

Jill said...

Lindy's comments always make me laugh out loud. I love her sweet innocence in the comment about the man with a cane being a shepherd. Precious. Was the man an elder? If so, I guess he is a shepherd. :)

Great tutu!!!
