Mind of the Pixie

I don't know where some of the stuff comes from that rolls around in that little brain of hers, but here are some recent examples.

"I'm going to build a swimming pool."
"Oh really, honey?"
"Yes.  We are going to build it when we get home.  I need some wood and some water."
"Hmm. I don't think we have enough wood or water at home to build a swimming pool. Maybe we will have to build it another time."
"Well, we can just stop at the water and wood store.  It's not very far from here."



This is the point where I have to break it to her that we are not going to be able to build a pool today. We can't get to the Wood and Water store in time.  She assures me, again, "But it's not far from here!"  "Far" and "here" being completely fluid things, you understand.

This morning, on our way to school, she came out with this one,

"I love flowers."
"I love flowers too, sweetie!"
"But I also like bugs."
"Well, that's cool.  You can like both things."
"I love ladybugs.  We need to go get some at the ladybug zoo."
"The ladybug zoo?"
"Yes. It's not far from here!"

I'm starting to see a trend.

The ladybug zoo has possibly relocated to my living room, because every morning when I open the blinds, I find three or four of them have taken up residence in the house.

Interesting...In our house everything is VERY FAR AWAY! Even if it's her room, or the bathroom, or the coloring book that's just out of reach. Too Far...Can't Move.

It's times like these that I miss Art Linkletter. These are gems. I'm so glad you wrote them down here for posterity. Some day you can put them all in a little book for your kids.

Oh I just LOVE this post - for me, this is as you know the fun part, where we get to see their little imaginations at work because now they can express themselves so well. Your daughter has a wonderful imagination and so much enthusiasm it must be such fun. Treasure every moment and word - because all too soon she will be grown.

Ya, Octo...I think the Pixie was envisioning an indoor pool.

When she has finished your pool can I have one too please? ;0)

Posting again to invite you to stop by to pick up a little something-something I have for you.

There was a little girl who had a little curl...

My pool is made out of water and wood and Pixie is free to use it anytime she wants to.
