Bits and Pieces

Friday, we took Brigid to see the Christmas lights on Lake Lanier Island. Well, first, we took her out shopping all morning, then we took her out to lunch, then we did more shopping, then we went to the Christmas village at the end of the lighted route, where we rode the carousel and a pony.

Then (once it was finally dark enough to make the trip), we took her driving through the Christmas lights. At which point, she immediately fell asleep.

Only to wake up again as we exited the park.

Good timing, kid.


Brigid's vocabulary is growing by leaps and bounds these days, but her pronunciation leaves a little to be desired. Yesterday, she kept asking for something that sounded like dog. Or down. Or frog. But it wasn't any of those things.

I was at a complete loss. And I told her so.

She looked at me for a moment, clearly annoyed, before she smiled and triumphantly yelled 'Bambi'.

She was asking to watch Rudolph all along...


There are currently three Snoopy programs on my DVR: The Great Pumpkin, whatever the Thanksgiving special was called, and Snoopy Come Home, which is a two-hour extravaganza.
The problem is, when she wants to watch Snoopy, she doesn't ask for a specific version of him, she just asks for Snoopy. So I scroll through all three programs, while she yells NO! at me until I pick the right one, then she graces me with a very sweet 'that one'.
And you'd better believe that that one is usually the two hour version.
Because, of course it is.

When Brigid asks for something, and you tell her she doesn't need it, she now responds with a quick 'yeah, I do'. And it's maybe one of the funniest things I've ever heard.
Sometimes, I tell her she doesn't need something, just so I can hear her say it again. And then I give in, in the end.
I imagine this is going to come back and bite me in the arse someday, isn't it?


  1. That adorable little girl has you wrapped around her finger! ha!!

  2. My eighteen month old says, "Da!" which means both, down, and dog and that, depending on her inflection. If she means "that," then you're screwed because we usually can not figure out what she wants.

  3. Elizabeth always says I NEED it. I NEED it.
