Wow Wii & Wow weird

So, what did everyone think of American Idol last night? Don't pretend like you don't watch...especially if you were at my house watching. I gotta say, it was kind of weird. The girl with the bikini???? Comically, I could understand the banter, etc. But after awhile it kinda got uncomfortable to watch. Then again, the girl DID wear a teeny bikini to a singing audition.....and my heart breaks a little for the super freaks that look even worse on DVR when SOMEONE (Jay) might hit pause at an unfortunate moment.....

I do have a segue....I just can't remember it specifically. At some point last night, something was said that made me think of all the funny things that our sweet girl Bella says incorrectly. Let me enlighten you....(I'm also following Crafty P's theory of this being a good way to journal for future scrapbook memories)

Since Bella was first allowed to feed herself french fries and cling to a Happy Meal toy she has referred to McDonald's as....Uncle Donald's! We were able to decipher this one because her older brother, Joe, has always called it Old McDonald's, like the song and she just took it from there.

She has always called a mirror a.....meever.

For Christmas, we got a Wii. (Thanks Santa...or the guy at a friend's work who bought it, never played with it and his wife made him sell it at a loss) Bella calls it our Wow Wii every time, which I think is too cute!

This one was not so day she runs into the living room and asks, "Mommy, Daddy can I have a f*** cicle?" WHAT??? WHAT??? I started having involuntary muscle spasms and trying to think of where I had gone wrong with this precious child that she would use such language....then we realized, she was asking a Ze Fronk cicle. Ze Fronk is a cartoon dog with a little 5 minute show in between other shows on the Disney Channel. He teaches kids to make easy pouring juice into an ice cube tray, sticking a toothpick in it and calling it a Ze Fronk cicle.

Now, most of the time we try to correct her but really, we let it slide. Except for that one...thank goodness Grandma was not here!

beautiful! i love getting to know our little friends so much better. this will be a good way to do that.
cute picture (ps. now, all you have to do is pick out some paper and a few embellishments, stick that picture down and print out this entry and voila, a scrapbook page has been made! easier said than done)

That's hilarious - Ella used to called trucks...the same word your daughter tried to say. I about had a heart attack when she yelled in Target and we were in the toy section "look mom, trucks (but with an f instead of tr)." Also she calls McDonalds, Old MacDonalds, like we're going to his house and it just happens to serve Happy Meals.

First of all, I just love the name pretty!

I missed Idol this week...and I'm not afraid to admit I'm a tad upset about it!

Cute cute stories. I look forward to seeing how Noah will buther a few choice words!
