Some good kid quotes

My 8-year old daughter, D, is about to start a 2-week day camp for "Creative Drama." Sounds like a good program. So I said to her yesterday, "Drama camp starts on Monday. You'd better start practicing being a drama queen."

D: "Um, I don't think I really need to practice."

Me: "Think they'll let you wear your crown?"

The other day, my 5-year old daughter, A, and I were in the car and we were doing some math problems. I gave her one and she figured it out and I said "Wow, great work! You did that without a pencil and paper!"

A: "The pencil and paper are made out of...brain stuff."

And this one might be a repeat from last summer, but it's been requested by WriterChick.

Last summer, A, then 4 years old, was playing with the magnetic poetry kit on my parents' refrigerator. She couldn't read, so she just strung a bunch of words together and made me read it to her. The last three words were "I. P. Yonder."

This amused her greatly and she made me read it to her repeatedly, always cracking up at the last words: I. P. Yonder. Later, we were in the car and out of nowhere she said "Yonder is just a Spanish word for: over dere."

I realize my fragrance of the day has been horribly neglected, (as has my blog in general) so I am hereby reinstating it.

Fragrance of the day: Robert Piguet Bandit. Bandit was introduced on the runway in 1944 during World War II with models brandishing pistols. Bandit is a floral chypre. Top notes: Neroli, Orange Essence, Ylang-Ylang, Artemisia, Galbanum, Bergamot Heart notes: Jasmine, Tuberose, Orris, Rose, Carnation, Leather Base notes: Mousse de Chene, Castoreum, Patchouli, Vetiver, Myrrh, Musk (thanks to Luscious Cargo for the notes). This is truly a take no prisoners scent. It's strong, ballsy, very distinctive with a leathery mossy feel and it's the one I wear when I'm feeling especially fab and on top of the world. OR when I'm feeling especially bitchy. I'll let you figure out which one is me today.

Brilliant -- and not surprising, considering their mother. :-)

Oh, also -- just a quick note to let you know I've changed my address from yellingfireinacrowdedtheater to triticumturgidum.

The latest from mine while watching ET (the movie).
"Mommy, why is his skin all wet?"
"I don't know honey, he's from outer space."
"Ohhhh." (matter of factly) "He's alien moist."
