More Madeleine Because You Asked...

I'm watching a friend's little 'un today, so here's all I've got...

Madeleine wrote me this note last night and delivered it wrapped in her soccer-ball sleeping bag:

MAC MY POOT MY JAMYZ ON TUMORO AD NOT NAW, or for everyone else, Make me put my jammies on tomorrow and not now.

Hence, she wore jeans and a t-shirt to bed. The other photo is her trying to get Ali to hold still so she can put a bug on his back for a ride. The ant was eventually lost in the slobber and could not be saved. Tears ensued.

ADORABLE! As a member of the Madeleine Fan Club I say "Thank you!"

BTW: You can tell you're her Momma when you understand that note. ;)

No kidding Tink! I love Madeline's purple earmuff hat.

And Mac my Poot sounds vaguely dirty to me.

And the houses in your neigborhood are huge and I love your dog.

Save the note (and its translation). One day you'll be watching her back out of the driveway as she leaves for school and you'll need a reminder that she was once young and innocent and that she spelled phonetically. You'll take one look at the note, recall how her voice sounded when little and then burst out crying. And you'll never throw it away. Not even when you're old.

Poor Madeline! My daughter dropped a container full of sea-monkeys once. She was probably about Madeline's age at the time. Talk about tears!

I think she could ride Ali like a pony!

I like that you spell her name like the delightful orangey cookie/cake item. :) Just noticed that.

Did you ever buy her the Wellies?

wordgirl, you made me tear up just thinking about that day...

Madeleine is named after another Madeleine that I love, so I went with her spelling. i think it's the French way, and the cookie way.

No boots yet, Mrs. H. We're still knee-deep in snow around here...

(Side note: Madeleine just walked up to me, butt naked, and said, "Mommy, I think I just got some donut in my 'gina." And yes, there was a sprinkle. Hm.)

Thank you Mignon, keep 'em coming. What a beautiful photo.

Holy crap, the donut comment is one of the funniest things I've read all day. Good that she learned the dangers of eating pastry products in the buff early. I think we all learned that lesson the hard way...

Sometimes the little ones they are so cute.

A sprinkle in her 'gina? Nope, nope, don't wanna know.

Tonight my 4 year old said, "I'm playing with my wiener, because I want a hot dog!"

Just wanna say, I've been surfing for 40 minutes looking for a new good blog to read, my butt is so numb, and I have found you. Thank you.

Wrapped in a sleeping bag! I love it!

About the sprinkle? We stopped at Krispy Kreme to stem the tide of tears over something I now forget. Then we got home, all took a shower (2 kids playing with the drain and empty shampoo bottles, me washing my greasy locks), and Madeleine watched Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer while I put Quinn to bed.
When I came out, the couch and apparently Madeleine's 'gina were festooned with sprinkles and frosting. (Jaye - haha!)

Esereth, thanks for staying and chatting... numb butt for me means 15 minutes with which to read a good book on the toilet. Heaven is the numb butt!

Sprinkles are probably the one item that I haven't had in my 'gina in the past two weeks.

For those of you unfamiliar with me, I am undergoing fertility testing and the corresponding pelvic exams; I am not some kind of fetishist.
