I know all Moms have stories about their kids. Funny stories. Sweet stories. Awwww stories.
I thought I'd bore you with a few McKayla stories ☺:
1). One of McKayla's favorite places to eat is Fazoli's. If you don't have one near you, it's a nice Italian fast food chain with a twist. They bring your food to you on REAL dishes, with real silverware and have the most amazing garlic bread.
Anyway, we were eating there one afternoon and McKayla was chowing down on her spaghetti with meat sauce, when she came across a small piece of tomato. She asked what it was and when we told her, she promptly spit out "Yuck! I HATE tomatoes."
We started laughing and then informed her that her spaghetti sauce was made with tomatoes.
She slowly set her fork down. Slowly leaned back in her chair. Then said "You're blowing my mind, man!" with the calmest look on her face. She then shook her head and resumed eating.
2). She went through this faze were she was adamant that she never actually went to sleep at night but instead was awake all night, every night.
When I questioned her about it, this is what she informed me;
"I haven't slept since I was 3 but even tho I don't sleep, I still grow taller and taller. So even tho I LOOK 5, I'm still really only 3."
If that was the case, I'd look a lot younger too! ROFL
3). We went out to a new restaurant one night. It's one of those that has all kinds of things hanging on the walls, similar to Cracker Barrel.
This particular restaurant had a Caribou head mounted on the wall. When McKayla saw it she said "Aww. Bless his heart!".
Can you tell we live in the South and she hears that a lot? LOL
4). While playing in her room one day, she yelled "Daddy" but I thought she'd called me, so I answered her. There was a bit of a pause, then she yelled "Well, ok. I actually called for Daddy but that works."
5). According to McKayla;
God built the world first. Then He made the trees and plants. Then He made construction workers so they could build our houses and stores and stuff.
Makes sense. How else would we have all these things? LOL
6). In a case of misunderstanding, Daddy and McKayla were discussing places up North that get a lot of snow. John was pointing out the different states and when he got to New Hampshire, McKayla pipes up and said "Oh! That's where all the houses are made with new hamsters!"
Wait. What?! Well ok then dear. LOL
7). John called me a shorty one day (it's true, I do good to reach 5'2" LOL). McKayla heard him, smacked him and then informed him "No. Mommy is NOT short, she's medium! I'm short, Mommy is medium and you're big."
Haha. I can handle being called medium. LOL
She's a pistol, that's for sure. She's constantly saying off the wall things that just have us rolling. Maybe she'll be an entertainer? ☺
