Hope  you all  enjoyed that! Later  I  plan to interview  her  some on camera and have  her  sing for us too---just  have to find my video camera LOL. Today we are leaving soon to go to story hour, then the mall  for lunch, then the Playstation (climbing/jumping/tunnel place) with Grandma and Harper and Sawyer, then to Grandma's to go swimming. Needless to say we  have a fun pre-birthday planned!

And how does  Miss  Raya  repay me for such a fun day in store? Well check  out this conversation we *just * had:

Raya asked for some Cheerios just now, after having eaten breakfast not long ago. I told her "ok, just a few....because see your tummy right there? Well, if you eat too many your tummy will get too big" then she looks at me and says "Like yours? My tummy is going to get really big like yours?"   

Seriously kid, thanks.   .....anyone know where my oreos are? I need  to eat my feelings :-P


  1. Cute interview I should do another one with kaylee & see what she says. Raya your never suppose to tell mommy shes big. Kids say the darnedest things

  2. Super cute! I love how their brains make the strangest connections, but it makes perfect sense to them!

  3. What a brilliant idea, I'll have to do that too - love the Cheerios comments, lol!

    Raya, you're supposed to say mommy is beautiful!
    Oh wait, that's just my kids???
    I teach them that I'm a princess, super mommy, and beautiful.
    Hey! Someone has to make a girl feel good right?!?
    I kid. I kid.

    But seriously, love this interview.
    I'm stealing your idea to do with the girls closer to their birthday!

    And yes, do a video interview!!!

  5. That was so so cute! I literally laughed out loud at work :D Kids are the cutest and just say the darndest things. Your such a cute mom, I will for sure need to do this when Hudson gets bigger!

  6. Love Rayas answers!!! Except I was disappointed that she didn't want me for a mama!!!!!I can't wait for her to see her doll house at her party!!!
