Sweetie Saturday #91 - Back With A Vengeance Edition

And,.... we're back!

In preparation for this past Tuesday's First In The Nation Primary, Hubby and I wanted to watch last Saturday's televised debated among both political parties. I explained to Sweetie ahead of time that we were going to watch this, and she probably wouldn't like it. But it's important for Daddy and I to watch - so just deal with it.

Actually, she did pretty well. She sat on the couch with us and snuggled in, didn't talk too much, and let us mostly pay attention.

However, she did become mysteriously very tired much earlier than she usually does and asked to go to bed early. Fine. Whatever.

The next morning we all came downstairs and I turned on the news. At the time, they were doing a recap of the previous night's event. Sweetie took one look at the T.V., saw the same scene she'd seen the night before, and exasperatedly exclaimed -

This show is still on?! I do not believe it!


I think Sweetie - and kids in general - knows a lot of things we adults don't know. Or at least things we as adults don't remember. For instance, Sweetie very clearly stated the other day that:

I was an imaginary friend before I was born. That’s what you are before you’re a baby. Everyone’s an imaginary friend before they were in your tummy, Mama.

Hmmm.... is that so? Sounds good to me!


As Sweetie and I headed out the door the other morning, leaving Daddy at home as he too got ready for work -

Have a fun day, Daddy. And remember - if you fall asleep, if you have a nightmare, don’t forget to call 911. Call 911 if you have an emergency!

Will do, Sweetie. Thanks.


One of Sweetie's many Christmas gifts was the High School Musical 2 DVD. She's watched it only 2 times now, including all the extras. And already she's a pro at singing the chorus of one of the more interesting songs - Humuhumunukunukuapua'a

Here are the actual chorus lyrics:

Makihiki malahini-who
Hawana wakawakawakaniki pu pu pu.

And now, Sweetie's version:

Wow! Pretty cool, huh? Great job!
