2006, 03/04 - Quotes

1) We watched & sang & danced to "Singin' in the Rain" almost every night this week and several times this morning. It went back to the video store today, and when we got back home, we didn't quite know what to do with ourselves. We kept singing snippets to each other but weren't able to pop in the dvd for reference.

Mama: [perched on the edge of the couch, eyes sweeping the room] What are we going to do now, without "Singin' in the Rain"?
Munchkin: I don't know!
Mama: [sigh]
Munchkin: I miss it!
Mama: Me, too!
[dramatic sobbing, gnashing of teeth, etc, ok, not really]


2) Very cool Munchkin-quote, to a bossy classmate: "Just go do it yourself."

2b) It has come out that Munchkin, though shy, is no pushover with her classmates. She is occasionally bossy herself, and often assertive. When she's not sure, she just plays by herself.

2c) I am pleased to see that her natural personality ("choleric," ref: http://oneishy.com/personality/choleric_strengths.php) comes through in spite of her over-protected only-child shyness.

2d) My response to Munchkin's "very cool" quote: YOU GO, GIRL!


3) Random Munchkin-quote: "You're gonna be so excited, your foot's gonna blow off!"

Way to go, Munchkin!

"Your foot's gonna blow off"?! I'm going to use that one!
