Abby stories of the day 11/20/10

Abby story of the day: Abby was crying because she had hurt herself by tripping over her own feet, and it was naptime, so a small hurt became something huge. When I asked her what I could do to make her feel better, hoping to settle her down, she looked me in the eye and said "Ice cream would make me feel better. With red sprinkles. Or chocolate"

Abby story of the day 2: Abby was in the car and Russ said "hey" to which Abby replied " A is for Abby! Silly rabbit! Trix are for kids!"

Permission Abby-ism

Tonight we took my daughter and son to a Santa Train where they could wear their pajamas and ride a train and see Santa. We were making a big deal about it, and in the car my daughter said to me while holding her doll "Mommy, Baby would really like to come to the pajama surprise where we can meet Santa, and I already told her it was OK, but it is ENTIRELY up to you......."

magic Abby-ism

Walking home from the playground tonight, Abby was asked what did she want for dinner? She replied she would like dinosaur chicken nuggets. Russ looked at her and said "Sweetie, you are going to BECOME a dinosaur chicken nugget!" She looked at him and said "No, Daddy, I won't, because I'm not magic!"

Aaron the monkey

I was eating a king size Hershey bar and only had half.  I folded the paper over and left it on the top shelf of the DVD rack, and walked away since the kids were sleeping. Fast forward to after nap, I was on the computer and Aaron walked off. The next thing I knew, Aaron was crying and Abby was coming into the computer room, carring the wrapper. Abby said "Mommy, was he supposed to have this?" I looked and there was only 3 little squares left...... and Aaron had chocolate all over his mouth....

patience abby-ism

My Facebook status, but I put it here too. Abby story of the day: Abby and Aaron were on my lap while I was on Facebook and we were playing a train game. Aaron was so excited to see the trains he was jumping and pointing and screaming. Abby looked over and said "patience, young Padawan, patience."

 (for those who might not know, a padawan is an apprentice Jedi. From the Wookieepedia: PadawanPadawan learner, or Jedi Apprentice in Basic, referred to a Force-sensitive adolescent who had begun one-on-one instruction with a Jedi Knight or Master outside of the Jedi academy. Having passed the Initiate Trials and ascended in rank from an Initiate, Padawans were given more responsibilities within the Jedi Order but were subject to the demands of their master.)

pumpkin abby-ism

Abby and I were going for a walk and saw some Jack-o-lanterns that were left out from Halloween. Abby looked at them, then up at me and said "Mommy, those pumpkins melted because they decayed...."

So, everyone has been telling me for a long time I should write a book with all of the sayings that my daughter says to me.... For a three year old, she has some pretty big ideas :-) So this is going to be my way of writing down what she says so I remember it all and can share it with everyone! Today's Abby-isms: Aaron and Abby were in the hallway supposedly putting on their shoes so we could go for a walk, and all of a sudden Aaron lost his balance (accidently or on purpose, I am not sure) and landed on Abby. She looks up at me and said "Mommy! Aaron destroyed me!"  The second one was: Abby did not want to put on her sweater, and I told her she had to... She looked up at me with all seriousness while holding her doll and said "No Mommy... Ariel told me I didn't have to."
