A Tiny Apron, 3 Year Old Conversations, and The Crud

A Tiny Apron:

First let me introduce to you this little baby apron I made for LaLa to wear on Thanksgiving. Because she needs to get in on the baking too, doncha know?

I will have to get a picture of it ON her next. It came out pretty cute, wouldn’t you say? Next I hope to get one made for my son to wear. Without ruffles. Or pink.

On to the 3 Year Old Conversations:

The other day my dear son was playing with his cars. (An hourly occurrence here) He was having a little conversation with them that went something like this:

“Hi what’s your name.”

“My name is race car.” (of course, because it IS a race car. so what else would it’s name be??)

“Hi race car. I’m going to pass you by.”

Ok, pass me by!”

That one cracked me up. Another one was between he and I. I had him in the car, and LaLa was at home with daddy. I told my Dear Son that we were going on a date together. (We were headed to the library and then Starbucks).

Me: “Hey we are going on a date!”

Him: “A date Mama?”

Me: “Yep!”

Him: “What is date Mama?”

Me: “This, you and me together without LaLa or Daddy”

Him: “I don’t see the date. Where the date Mama?”

Me: “This is the date, me and you together.”

Him: “Where date go? I don’t see the date!”

This continued back and forth..this is the date…I don’t see the date…till I finally said:

Ok, there is no date. Do you want to go to the library and Starbucks with me?”


Him: “Where the date go Mama???

Obviously I didn’t explain that one to him very well!

The Crud.

We have what my dad calls “The Crud.” I’d say that defines it pretty well, but let me explain just in case- we are sick. If I were to define it I would say the flu with out the throwing up part. It started with LaLa. I hate it when my kids get sick, and it’s doubly sad when it is the baby. Then it hit me, then Dear Son, and lastly Dear Husband. Now Dear Husband seems to be fending it off pretty well, but boy has it got me. Fever, chills, stuffed head, sore throat, blah. I am glad we got it before Thanksgiving, hopefully it will be gone by then! Begone Thou Crud!

  1. Ohhhhhh I love that little baby apron! Does it also work as a bib?You’ll be glad you wrote down the cute things your kids say, because even when you think you’ll never forget, you do! All of you please get well, I am praying for you!

  2. That apron is ADORABLE!!! I saw those last weekend on our anniversary trip selling for $30. You are amazingly talented. Your conversation with your 3 year old cracked me up. I had a funny one with my 3 year old yesterday. Emma : What’s a baby?Me : A little person that hasn’t grown up yet.Emma : oh.Me : I have four babies…M, J, E, and A.Emma : Don’t forget Daddy.Me : No, he’s not my baby, he’s my husband.Emma : No, he’s your baby Daddy.Me (laughing) : Yep, you’re right. He sure is.Not a day goes by that she doesn’t have me rolling on the floor. I love it! How boring our lives would be without them!

  3. Love the apron. She’s a lucky little girl to have a mommy who made that for her. And love the conversation with a 3 year old. Brilliant. The part about the date was like a younger version of “Who’s on First?” :)And thanks for mentioning my shop! I really appreciate that.
