baby sister please

even though almost everyone i know has heard this story, i couldn't resist putting it up for you select few (mostly out-of-towners). this is, in fact, all time lily.

overheard in the shower.

lily- "daddo, what are those?"
brandon- "those are my balls." (wow. leave it to b to just be out with it.)
lily- "oh. well, what are they for?"
brandon- "well, when mama and daddo want to make a baby, that's where daddo keeps his babies." (no skirting around the ol birds and bees in this house)
lily- pause, contemplative look. "daddo, could you make me a baby sister with your eyeballs?"

now that we've aired it, i'll let you know there will be no babies comin round here anytime soon. so in the meantime, this is what we can give her.

we know- he'll be in therapy later. until then, he sure does make a cute baby girl!

Reminds me of a line from Ace Ventura.

I remember this one time I was babysitting the Reys. Just Mitchell and Daniel, pre-other siblings and minus James and Wendy. We were at the Anselms and I thought it would be funny to dress Mitchell up in Emma's clothes. James came home and saw Mitchell and looked at me with eyes like knives. To this day it is one of my top 5 regrets.

I had what was coming to me when we were at Max and Milo's cousin's house without Milo's pajamas. He had to wear some lavender number and he really looked like a girl. I'm sad now just thinking about it. That's when I taught him how to punch.

Could win the funniest post of the year. Maybe a tie with "the wicked witch!"

I am a firm believer in cross dressing. I love wearing jeans!

Poor Ozzie,
You need to get him down here with the Blackwell Boys, playing with trucks and dirt. Nahh just kidding though it would be great if you could come for a visit. Can't believe how much he looks like Lily especially in the close up with the dinosaur shirt and pink and white bow in his hair.

sending love to you guys...
