Today’s Macy-ism

After my staging partner (Nikki) and I spent the last two days looking for things to stage a house on a shoe string budget, Macy (4) was finished with us.  Stick a fork in her, she was done.

Tonight at bedtime Macy gave her Daddy hugs and kisses and went through the nightly routine of “Goodnight Daddy, love you, see you in the morning.”

He said, “What are you and Mommy doing tomorrow?”

“I don’t know.  But I’m NOT GOING JUNKIN’!”

Lillie and Macy-isms (Oldies, but goodies)

Here are some I posted a while back on FB.

Lillie-isms

I have always called Macy Chicken Little, and she calls me Chicken Big.  Today we were getting out at the Library and I unbuckled her car seat and said, “Let’s go Chicken Little.”  So Lillie says pointing at Macy, “She’s Chicken Little, I’m Chicken Middle, and Mommy’s Chicken Big.”
.

Grama and the girls are playing store.

Lillie:  “Macy!, Macy!, you have to pay for that before you leave the store.  If you don’t, it’s stealing.”

Macy ignores her.

“Hello, Police Department?  A girl named MACY just STOLE an apron!”

Macy:  “That’s a pretend phone.”

.
Lillie came home excited about being able to check out chapter books at school.  “I’m going to use my new Junie B. Jones book to do my homework tonight, because the harder the book is, the more I have to think.”
.
The kids are in the backyard playing…and quiet, so I stand at the screen door and listen.  Lillie is pretending she’s the teacher and tells her friend and Macy, “You two have to decide on one thing.  I’m only one person and I can’t be in two places at once.”

.

Lillie came home and asked for a drink.  She wrote her name on a left over party cup, complete with hearts and peace signs.  What does a 7 year old know about peace?  She can’t even get along with her sister.

.
(Re:  State Fair October 2010) Me:  let’s go ride some rides, see the animals, and the cars…  Lillie:  “I don’t want to see the cars.  They’re just there to look fashionable.”
.
Lillie is listening to her MP3 player.  Mike put a bunch of music on it, one being Rascal Flatts.  She just told Macy, “Do you know what happens when you play a country song backwards?…You get your house back, you get your car back…”  She has no idea what that means, but she thought it was hilarious.
.
We  went to the Heard Museum and Sanctuary in McKinney today.  They have a
small, tight parking lot.  Mike made a loop all the way around it, and  then commented about how they could make the parking spots big enough to park in.  Lillie who had just been asleep, snaps back with “It doesn’t  look like anyone else had trouble parking.”  We both burst out laughing,  and Mike says, “We’ll see that on Facebook.”
.
(9/1/10) Tacky, but I have to share.  I was cutting out words for Lillie’s class & gluing them to make flashcards.  Lillie had too much glue on the 1st one, the word “white”.  I cleaned it up & set it aside to dry.  She sat beside me & helped. When she stood up ‘white’ was stuck to her bum.  I stopped laughing long enough to tell Mike “I guess that’s what Mom meant by ‘kiss my Lillie white ass.'”
.
(8/23/10 1st Day of 1st Grade)
Me:  “So what did you learn in school today?”  Lillie:  “I learned that when you push the button on the paper towels, you only get to pull the handle down two times.  Cause two times is enough to dry your hands.”
.
Probably my favorite Lillie-ism of all times…
(8/7/10) Lillie: “Daddy, why do you need that guy telling you how to get home?  As little as I am, I know how to get home.  It’s not like they move everything around when it’s dark.”
.
(7/16/10) Me:  “Why is that kitten screaming?”  Lillie:  “Because Macy closed his tail in the microwave door!!!”
.
(5/15/10) Today’s Lillie-ism:  “It’s so hot out there, it could make a pig sweat!”
.
(5/6/10) I told the girls to clean the playroom before I get a trash bag.  Lillie just sneaked in behind me and set a note taped on a stick on my desk.  It says, “amoste cleen Mommy.”  Even when I’m frustrated, they always manage to make me smile.
.
(5/4/10)  Mike stopped on the way home to get the girls a candy bar.  Macy said, “I want JUST CHOCK-LIT.  NOTHING ELSE!”  Mike said, “No nuts?”  Macy said, “Nuts are for sqwerls!”
.
(2/14/10)  We took the girls to McDonald’s for Valentine’s Day (Macy’s repeated
request).  They had both been grumpy until we sat down at the table, and then giddiness kicked in.  Mike said, “You girls sure got happy when we got to McDonald’s.”  Lillie says, “Well, now you know why they call it a ‘Happy Meal!'”
.
(1/22/10)  My sweet darling children are screaming at the top of their lungs over who drank the last of the PRETEND tea!!!  UGH!
.
(12/27/09)
Lillie: I know what one “!” means, but what does “!!!” mean?
Me: It means the same thing.
Lillie:  Then why do you need three of them?
.
(11/20/09) Lillie’s homework-rhyming words & a story. What’s the beginning, end, did she liked it?, change the ending. She chose Little Red Riding Hood & a scary ending. “The wolf ate her!” Nighmares @ 11:00 screaming, “No, no, don’t eat her! Run!” I wake her up, calm her down & soon she’s out. 10 min. later, she wakes up yelling……, “shoe, BLUE!”  “cook, BOOK!”  At least she was able to change the channel.
.
(11/17/09)  I just asked Lillie what she was doing.  It was quiet and she is supposed to be brushing her teeth.  She responded with, “That’s not me!  Cali is drinking out of the toilet!”
.
.
Macy-isms:
.
.
.
Daddy, why do we have doors that we can shut and lock, on our bedrooms, if you don’t ever let us shut and lock them?
.
I picked up my friend’s girls for a play date a little while ago.  Macy squeals, “Come see my new bedding!  Oh, but my bed’s not made and there’s a bunch of stuffed animals on there.”
.
Macy:  “Mommy, where’s the flashlight?”
Me:  “I don’t know, why do you NEED a flashlight?
Macy:  “I’m gonna make bunny rabbit faces with my fingers (on the tent walls).”
.
Macy got into the chocolates today, so I told her “No more, now go brush your teeth!”  She came back a couple of minutes later, so I asked if she brushed them.  She smiled a giant toothy-grin and said, “Ding!”  “That’s means my teeth are clean.”
.
“Lillie, when I say abercadabra, you run away like you’re dissing appear.”
.
Mike to Macy:  “Where’s your Mama?”  Macy (4): “She’s in her caaaaaave.”
.
Quote for the day:  “Look what you did Lillie! I’m never gonna be your sister again.”
.
“I want to watch a movie.  What’s that girl’s name who flies?”  Me: “Mariposa?, Tinkerbell?”  Macy:  “”Nooooooooo, Mary Poppins!”
.
Macy is playing on the Wii. “Mommy, can you help me get rid of this mustache?” She was editing her Mii all by herself.
.
Macy:  “daddy?  Daddy?  DAddy?  DADdy?  DADDYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY​Y?” Me: “What’s wrong baby?”
Macy: “I WANT DADDY!”
.
Macy:  “Uh, I can’t do it!”
Me: “Do what?”
Macy:  “Put these shoes on my Barbie.”
Me: “She doesn’t have any clothes on.”
Macy:  “She doesn’t want clothes on, only these (high heeled strappy) shoes.”
.
I’m cleaning house and find an empty Zhu Zhu Pet box and a paper plate in a laundry basket.  I pick them up and toss them in the trash.
Macy says, “Hey!  Don’t take that!”
Me, “Why not, it’s trash?”
Macy, “No it’s not, it’s my car!”
How could I be so blind?
.
I gave Macy a banana this morning.  She was in the car telling me all the things you can do with it.  It’s a telephone, it’s a unicorn, it’s a happy face, it’s a sad face, it’s a mustache….   I was cracking up.  I love that child!
.
(October 2010) I’m getting ready to head to the school for Grandparents Day–Macy and camera in tow.  Macy asked if she could go home with Grama and Grandad so she didn’t have to stand around all day being good while I take pictures.
.
Macy is watching the Scooby Doo 2 Movie.  She said, “That place is like ‘Cool-Topia!!.'”
.
I walked into the kitchen to find Macy unwrapping an ice cream sandwich.  When I stared at her with that disapproving Mom look, she said, “Well, I ate a good lunch!”
.
(8/8/10) Macy just ran in, opened my desk drawer and swiped an envelope.  I said, “Hey, you can just take those without asking!”  She held up 5 fingers and said, “I have 3 more in there.  Can I have them too?”
.
(8/7/10) We saw a guy in a convertible tonight with long white hair in a ponytail and a long white beard.  Mike said, “Look girls, it’s Santa Claus.”  Lillie (6):  “Daddy is that really Santa Claus?”  Macy (3):”Of course not, he isn’t wearing a red suit.”
.
(7/20/10) Me:  “Macy, you can have a snack if you’ll finish your lunch.”
Macy:  “Um, no thank you.  I just bought the Scooby Snack Factory, I’m good.”
.
(7/15/10) Macy: “Mommy can you bring me some toilet paper?  I wasted it all.”
.
(7/7/10) I took the girls to Chick-Fil-A this afternoon.  Macy was too tired to climb and play, so she came and sat in my lap instead.  Big tears started rolling down her face and she said, “I wish I was as big as Lillie.”  I gave her big hugs and wiped away her tears and told her I’m so glad she isn’t.
.
(6/17/10)  Macy is playing with a magnifying glass and said, “Whoa…Lillie looks HUUUUUUGE!”
.
(6/12/10) Macy walks in with dark green bible school t-shirt down to her knees, hot pink socks and a Little Mermaid umbrella.  Mom can you babysit Neyat (her invisible cat)?  Me: Your invisible cat, sure.  She walks out.  Me: How long do I have to watch her?  Macy: “Ummm. 4 days.”
.
(6/9/10)  Macy: “No that isn’t right!”  Lillie:”Yes it is, that’s how the rock stars wear it.”  Macy: “Well I don’t want to be a rock star.”
.
(6/9/10)  Macy just said “Coodie Coo.”  She saw it on an Orbit commercial.
.
(5/31/10)  Macy’s new favorite cartoon is Scooby Doo.  I think she may have seen one too many episodes in the last 2 weeks.  The girls were playing in their pool and she told me I needed to get in there because “the water feels groovy.”
.
(5/28/10)  While eating breakfast this morning, Lillie says “I slept like a rock last night.”  Then Macy (who woke up twice screaming, but didn’t know why) says “I slept like a rocket!”
.
(5/18/10)  This morning I made Mike a “to-do” list before I left the house..things like replace the thing on the girls toilet that allows it to flush (broke last night).  Only 2 or 3 little things, nothing major.  So Macy asks me, “Can I tell Daddy to fix my Vissy-arr?  “I can’t watch my divvy-deez.”  God I love that child!
.
(5/1/10) Lillie is strumming her guitar and singing loudly.  Then I hear Macy yell, “Lillie, I can’t hear myself think!”
.
(4/16/10)  Macy: “Mommy, say ‘What are you laughing at?'”  Me: “Macy, what are you laughing at?”  Macy:  “I can’t tell you, it’s a secret!”
.
(4/2/10)  Macy:  “Mommy, ballet is my thing.”  (learned from an episode of Little Bill)  Lillie:  “I guess my thing is going to school.”  Macy:  “Mommy’s thing must be washing dishes, cause she does it every day!”
.
(3/10/10)  Macy is singing Supercanafralagistics-esspiana​ (giggle giggle giggle) do shus.
.
(3/4/10)  Macy and I were talking about tattling today.  “Lillie always tells on me!  She’s RUINING my life!”  I couldn’t contain the laughter.  My 3 year old has watched Barbie’s The Princess and the Pauper movie one too many times.
.
(2/13/10)  Macy and Lillie are “ice skating” in the house.  Lillie fell down’ and asked Macy to help her up.  Macy says, “Ok Lillie but I think you might need some ice skating lessons.”
.
(2/13/10) Macy:  “Mommy, can I have another piece of candy?”  Me:  “Is your playroom clean yet?”  Macy runs away yelling, “Lillie!  Mommy said I can’t have another piece of candy!”
.
(2/4/10)  I asked Macy if she wanted macaroni and cheese for lunch.  She slapped her hand over her eyes, threw her head back and yelled, “Ew yuck!”….  Is that a no in Drama Queen?
.
(1/28/10)  The girls are in the tub and Macy starts frantically yelling.  I wasn’t sure what she was saying (they are in the next room).  I run in and and she’s all but crying, and loudly whining, “I look terrible, just terrible.”  I finally figure out that she put bubbles on her face and in her hair, and it made her look “just terrible!”  Oh the drama these girls dream up.
.
(1/27/10) Macy to Lillie….”GET OUT OF MY SPACE-SHIP!”
.
(1/21/10)  Macy is sitting in my lap “writing her ABCs.”  I keep looking around her & she said, “what are you doing?”  I said I can’t see THROUGH your big head.  She said, “well, I’m tryin to see, too!”
.
(12/18/09)  Macy is taking a bubble bath while I’m getting ready.  I turned off the hair dryer and looked over and the wall has foam sliding down…all over the place.  I said, “What are you doing silly girl?”  “Having a snowball fight…and I’m winning!”  LOL, ya think?
.
(11/3/09)  Macy is in the tub giggling and laughing.  Then I realize she’s trying to wet Cali (cat).  So I say, “Don’t wet my bathroom floor!”  She pops back with, “I’m not, I’m wetting MY bathroom floor.”

Ice Cream Makes Me Sleepy

Last night’s (or early this morning’s) Macy-ism.  I put her in bed with me because she was turned sideways and pushing Lillie out of bed.  She woke up wanting to chatter.  I said, “Sssssh.  It’s time to go to sleep.”  Whispering in my ear, “Mommy, sometimes ice cream makes me sleepy.”  Did I mention it was 4:45 in the morning?

You can come in, but…

Normally, my girls play well together.  Yes, they bicker and fight like all siblings.  But, if they can’t work it out, I usually separate them.  After a few minutes, the little one is asking to apologize to her sister, whether she’s at fault, or not.

One day I heard them arguing.  Lillie didn’t want Macy in her room.  I told them to stop it, or separate.  Then nothing.  No yelling, no screaming, no drama.  I must investigate.  Someone’s either being suffocated with a pillow, or they’ve managed to actually work things out.  Hmmm.  Yes, I must investigate.

I sneak a peak into Lillie’s room.  They had come to a compromise and everyone was happy.  Hold on, don’t move, must get camera!

You can come in,

but you can't cross the line.

Macy didn’t care, she made it past the door, and she was smiling like a Cheshire cat.  She wasn’t allowed to cross the line drawn in the sand (pencils end to end in a beach theme room–I’m so clever), but she was happy.  No drama, I’m happy, too.

Now, clean your room!

This can’t be MY baby book

A couple of weeks ago, while straightening Lillie’s room she found her baby (scrap) book and asked to look at it. Macy found hers and said, “This can’t be MY baby book, there’s only 1 page in it.”  Lillie’s has almost every second of the first three years of her life in it.
I guess it’s the 2nd child syndrome.  No, I don’t love your sister more than you, I just don’t have time for you…. or something like that.

I’ve fallen

…a little behind on blogging, so I’ll try and remember what I’ve missed.

Macy-isms.

Macy and her friend Olivia are playing.  “We’re doing a puzzle Mommy, so don’t annoy us.”  Um, ok.

Macy:  “Mommy, can I just sleep in your bed tonight, since I’m gonna end up there anyway?

Random Macy trivia  “Mommy, you know if you put the toaster on 5 it will burn it black?!?!”

After hearing the refrigerator open for the 387th time this afternoon, I yell to who ever is feeling guilty, “What are you into?!?!?!” Macy pops back with “Thuuuu reeefriiiigeraaaaator!”

It's not a mess, it's my drum set!

Tonight’s Macy-ism

Macy (4 yrs old):  Daddy, why do we have doors that we can shut and lock on our bedrooms if you don’t ever let us shut and lock them?
