Lillyisms and "Making up" scientific discoveries

Lilly: We gotta get dressed so we can go to the gym!
Mama: We are going to stay home today to get rid of our coughs, we don't want to get anyone at the gym sick, do we?
Lilly: But, but, my Monday friends were expecting me!


8 p.m. Mama tucks Lilly into bed and explains that Daddy is working late, but will come and tuck her in when he gets home.
9:15 p.m. Daddy sneaks into her room to find her sitting up, arms crossed. "It is pitch black outside and you are very very late."


8 p.m. Mama tucks Lilly into bed
8:30 p.m:
Mama: "Honey, you need to close your eyes for sleep now, no more songs."
Lilly: "But it's not dark out. I'm not sleeping until it's dark out."
Mama: "Remember mommy told you in the summer time it stays lighter later, but we still need to go to bed."
Lilly: "Why does it stay lighter later?"
Mama: "It has to do with the moon and sun and earth--the days are longer in the summer time so the sun shines longer."
Lilly: "I think that is stuff moms make up and tell their kids so they go to bed sooner."


A fight between mama & Lilly persists as Lilly refuses to use manners and thank her friend for inviting us over to play. After her punishment for not using manners, she says. "Don't tell me what to do in front of my friends."


My mom may have said it best when she said, "That child has walked this earth before." Not sure I totally believe in that stuff, but seriously, she sounds like she's 12 this week. Where the hell did my baby go?

Now, back to meeting with other moms and making up the planets orbiting in the solar system.

This sounds just like my Hannah! I swear she's a teenager in a preschoolers body.

That is hilarious! Where does she get this stuff? That is a great picture of her too, I love her red hair and it's getting so long.
