One of Brooklyn's favorite things to do is play with my make-up. Sometimes she gets really brave and gets into Lexi's play make-up. For some reason, she never gets stupid brave enough to touch Savannah's make-up though.

Yesterday evening, she asked me, "Can I put on some make-up, Mama?"

"Sure, Oat," I replied, thinking she was going to put on the lipgloss that I'd designated as hers. It used to be mine, but after I'd seen her smearing it on the walls and sink in the bathroom, I bequeathed it to her.

She disappeared into her room while I made dinner.

A few minutes later, she pounced into the kitchen.

"Ohhh, well, look at... you," I remarked. "You're a cat, huh?"

"No, Mom! I'm a spy! I'm Agent Cat!"

"Well, of course you are. But before you slink off to fight crime, come sit down and have some dinner."

"I don't eat dinner. I'm a CAT, Mom!" She looked at me, incredulous that I'd forgotten so quickly.

"That's okay. It's not people food. It only looks like mostaccoli. It's really Cat Chow", I lied.

She looked dubious, but agreed to drink some milk. Out of a bowl. Yeah.

Oh well, it could've been worse. She could've been Agent Bird and insisted I regurgitate a worm into her mouth.

I think Lexi did a fantastic job.

aaarrghhh... and just when I thought what a cute post, you had to bring up the worm... that is not going down so well with the lunch I just finished.

I always think it's hysterical when little kids look at us with that expression that can only be described as "incredulous." Their little brains simply cannot comprehend our stupidity at forgetting that, in my case, Pandy the PillowPet, is the one I'm supposed to be talking to.

Priceless! Absolutely priceless! I <3 your kids' creativity!

Go with a gummy worm as opposed to a real one. They taste better either way they go...

Too cute, she is creative for sure and keeps you and us laughing. That is what we need sometimes when things get to us and children always know what to do or say to shake us out of our bad moods.

*sobs* who was it who said that the English and Americans are only separated by a common language?!!

I read your blog - I usually enjoy your blog immensely BUT then you go and use another 'foreign' word!

What is it about becoming animals, and particularly a cat? My daughters love to do it, too!

lawnajo said...

Love the lipstick on her teeth. LOL!

You also don't want her to be Agent Bird around statues and newly washed cars. You are good with words but I'd like to see you talk your way out of that one. There are just times when humor is NOT the best approach.

How cute is that!

I love Brooklyn! Growing up, I was a cat too. Really. If you had met me, I would have pulled my "paws" up to my chest and told you a great, big MEOW - and this was 3rd grade! Incidentally, 3rd grade was also the year the principal had to chat with me about why it was wrong to force my friend to eat grass, even though cats do it all the time.
Ahh, memories ;)
