i swear i am not making this up

Earlier this evening I was measuring Daughter for some new winter socks I'd like to make her. When I was done she took the measuring tape and proceeded to "measure" me and make little "notes" in her notebook. Then the following conversation took place:

Daughter: I have to measure Daddy when he's done mowing the lawn.

Me: Ok, sounds good.

D: I have to measure his belly.

Me: ?

D: Do you know why? Because I'm going to sew him a shirt!

Me: Oooh! Daddy will love that.

D: I'm going to sew him a white t-shirt. And it will have PINK letters on it!

Me: Oh? And what will the letters be?

D: H-O-T-T!

Me: (barely stifling hysterical laughter) Awesome!

D: Yeah, and he will wear it for work!

For the record, Daughter knows how to spell and write many, many words, but I'm 99.9% sure she had no idea what she was saying here, which makes it extra, extra funny.

If she made it for him, I bet he'd wear it!

Pam said...

HA! And that is exactly why we love our kids!

So are you ready? Well, as ready as you're going to be I suppose, right?

Still praying for a healthy baby, healthy mom and quick, safe delivery:)

Hey! I mailed off a wee baby gift for you today, so when you get a package from Pam and wonder who in the world that is - it's me, "just a mom".
