I'm counting down the top 3 Monique crack-up's of the last couple of weeks.
Kirk was trying to help her with her nightgown, and was really struggling to get it right. (Monique likes only "pretty" nightgowns)
After they were all done, Kirk said
"I'm sorry, I just don't know about girl stuff."
"That's ok Daddy, you can make noodles," Monique replied.
Monique was supposed to be working on her room. We had asked her over and over. Finally, Kirk told her she had to go into her room, and clean for
"But, I can't Daddy," she said.
"And why not?" Kirk asked.
"BECAUSE I'M A PRINCESS!"
Kirk looked at me and said, "We're in big trouble."
I told her to go ask her Cinderella doll if Princesses had to do chores. She disapeared for a couple of minutes, and came back to reply,
"OK, I'll go work on my room."
Thank you Cinderella!
AND THE NUMBER 1 MONIQUE-ISM...
The other day I saw Monique out of the corner of my eye kissing her Barbie head. It's one of those do my hair Barbie thingies...with just a big head and some shoulders. I watched her for a few minutes, and she kissed her over and over. These were not little pecks ~ OH NO ~ these were "movie star" kisses. I finally asked her what she was doing, and we had the following conversation:
Mommy - "What are you doing Monique?"
Mo - "I'm kissing her."
(with a look like, duh Mommy...can't you see that?!)
Mommy - "Why are you doing that?"
Mo - "BECAUSE I'M THE PRINCE!"
Why didn't I know that? She must think I'm the dumbest Mommy ever.
OF COURSE! She's the Prince. Why didn't I think of that?
We love you Monique...you always keep us entertained!
