Lucy has been full of hysterical sayings lately (when she's not being hysterical, that is. Hysterical as in screaming mad, not ha-ha funny). Grandma and Grandad with the Pear Trees were coming to babysit them last Friday (oh-Grandma--when we say bed at 7:30, there's a reason, LOL). Both Huey and Lucy thought we were going out to have another baby!! And last week, I took them to the Bulk Barn. I never take them anymore as the trip before had been so horrible. But I had put it off and ran out of time. We were checking out and Lucy wanted just about every sticker pack on the rack. I said I couldn't get them right then so I'd have to send Daddy back. The cashier thought that was a great 'lie'. Hee Hee. Works a lot!
When we went to Bancroft the weekend before, we listened to "Kids Are Worth It" by Barbara Coloroso on tape. The kids played, slept, ate, etc. We didn't think they were paying much attention, but occasionally Huey would laugh at something on the tape. But then...in Bulk Barn, Lucy asked for something. I was distracted, she already picked her one treat, so I said "No." She says "But on the tape, she said I'm supposed to convince you!" LOL!!! (Referring to the section about how to avoid saying "No" by saying things like "Convince me" or "It's a no now, but if you can wait, it might become a yes once I think about it".)
And last night the MOST hysterical thing. Lucy's JK/SK class is singing in the Christmas concert. She's been practicing the songs, "Nuttin' For Christmas", "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" and Jingle Bells. But last night she started singing something else which I recognized as "Merry Christmas/War is Over" by John Lennon.
"So this is Christmas/And what have you done/Another year over/And a new one just begun..." And Lucy goes on... "And so this is Christmas/For weak and for strong/For the witch and the poor ones...and the witch is the ugly one with the poison apple from Snow White".
I nearly fell off my chair!
