You Can't Catch Me, I'm the Gingerbread Man!

Ever have one of those days when your kid is on role with wild and crazy sayings? I am having one of those days today. My spirited little Karlie has been cracking me up and left me wondering how good of a job I am doing parenting her.

It all started early this morning when she spontaneously strips off her clothes down to nothing (it is snowing and 20 degrees here) and starts running wild through the house screaming at the top of her lungs, "You can't catch me! I am the Gingerbread Man!" I join in the game (no, I kept my clothes on), and start chasing her around. Kaitlin decides to follow suit and before long I have two kids running naked through the house laughing and singing the gingerbread man song. I finally catch them and throw them in the bath. As I am laughing at her, I ask, "What planet are you from?" She replies, "Mom. Don't you know everyone who lives on earth if from earth?" I wasn't really expecting that out of my 3 year old. Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer.

Lunchtime brought a few more Krazy Karlie sayings. Kaitlin was hungry and started getting impatient as I was getting the Mac-n-Cheese ready. Karlie calmly turns to her and says, "Relax buddy." Gee, I can't imagine where she could have heard that? Later Kaitlin thought it would be a great idea to shake her cranberry juice (I know, what kind of idiot mom gives a toddler dark red, staining, cranberry juice!) in her sippy up and down causing a spraying effect like a fountain. Lovely red drops of juice landed all over her shirt and pants. This was already outfit number three today, not to mention it stains! I started grumbling about not shaking juice and I can't believe you will have gone through 4 outfits before noon. Karlie busts out with, "sorry mom, life is hard sometimes." WHAT? My kid is telling me to buck-up! I can only imagine what the rest of the day will bring from my little gingerbread girl.

HAHAHA Oh my goodness, I feel your pain my friend, I really do! hehe, but I can't help but giggle a little when it's not me!

*side note* wanted to respond to you comment on my blog. NEVER ever think 'I should have done something different or known sooner'. Nope. Thats not the way life works. Thats not the way GOD works. And he is with you guys at every appointment, every cry session, every minute of every day. I'm praying for you sister, I really really am, ok? :)
I understand.
