Ah, the Things Bug Says

My mother boarded a plane back to Georgia in the wee hours of the morning, much to the chagrin of the girls...and me!  It was fabulous having her here and we all look forward to our or her next visit, whichever comes first. :)

While she was here, Bug had a few choice things to say to her that I just had to share.

We were driving in the car...most likely going to Target because it seems for some reason or another we were there almost every day while she was here!...and Bug asks her if she has anymore of 'those orange string things.'

We looked at each other, trying to find some understanding of what she was asking about; neither of us had a clue.  I asked Bug what she was talking about and she further clarified something to the effect 'the orange string things you put in your mouth.'

Light Bulb...Tic Tacs!!!  My mother almost always has some in her pockets and Bug must have, at some point, seen them.

My mother told her that she had thought she had more, but couldn't find them in her suitcase.

Bug asked if she has some when she first got here, to which Mamaw answered, 'yes.'

Bug then said, 'Well then why didn't you share them with me when you had some?!"

Another day, my mother was trying to escape the constant tea partying to go to the powder room.  She didn't turn the light on as there is a night light in there that provides enough light to get the job done.

Bug approached the folding door and asked if she was in there.  My mother said, 'yes.'

Bug then carefully opened the door, head down, announcing 'I'm not looking, I'm not looking.'  She made her way into the laundry room and turned on that light.

She then proceeded into the bathroom, head still down, back towards my mother, saying 'Still not looking' and turned that light on.

She then told Mamaw, 'You can't pee with the lights off, Mamaw!' and exited the bathroom, back still towards her, through the laundry room and shut the folding door, confident that she had spared Mamaw from the mistake of peeing in the dark!!

Ah, the mind of my almost three and a half year old!  She never ceases to entertain!!


  1. She's hilarious! : ) We also keep tons of tic-tacs-we buy them at Sam's now by the box! The kids each got two flavors since they are calorie-free/sugar free! (Ches calls them the kids' breakfast on Christmas morning!)

    Hope you guys see your mom again soon! : ) Hugs!
