Curly, reading me a Beauty and the Beast book

Once upon a time, there was me and I lost my father in jail. And then, when I was going at the castle, I turned into a boy. My father get in jail. There's my horse. When I was singing a dance I danced and yellow dancing. But I was afraid of those candles and dishes. Then there was a song, and I am a princess. The end.

Love it. Molly is going to be "yellow dancing" for Halloween!!

I love the part about "but I was afraid of those candles and dishes". She got all the important parts.

Cute!

I think she's displaying a preternatural ability for storytelling. Contact a literary agent post haste.

La Yen said...

Yup, all the subtlety of a Disney movie. Start her screenwriting, now!

She says funny things everyday, I just decided that this one needed to be shared. Speaking of screenplays, I was told on Friday night that I should write a screenplay.

Give us the treatment! What's it about?

~j. said...

I don't know. I asked what it should be about and was told, "It doesn't matter - anything." I am taking requests, if anyone has any ideas.

This is so great! I need to be better at writing down the cute things my kids say. I think to myself, "That was so cute! So cute I'll be able to remember it for sure. I mean, how could I forget it?" Then by that evening, I can't even remember it to tell Guy.

I remember when my oldest, then probably 3, asked me what the moon was full of.

~j. said...

Aw, Lorien, I think that "I going to poop on Cammie" counts, and you DID write that down! ;) By the way, what did you answer, about what the moon was full of?

La Yen said...

You should write about getting kicked out of the Young Busti Ambassadors for raucous behavior. Or write about the time you sold your imclone stock illegally and had to go to prison for 5 months and got caught smuggling nutmeg in your bra.

AzĂșcar said...

OOOhh there could be some sort of dramatic showdown during "Till We Meet Again"--I love it!

Maybe you could write about the time that were assaulted by a merry poppuns? Or the time you lost the prison Christmas decorating contest to a shoebox manger.

~j. said...

Oh yeah - getting kicked out. That would be a great story. I don't know if I can face those demons just yet.

Carina, did you get my email?

I got that reference from "Martha Behind Bars". Wicked. I was watching it at the same time as several other shows....I was especially touched by the scene where Martha, with her infinate patience and knowledge, teaches the inmates to make paper cranes. This, of course, heals all of them and they dance with chimney sweeps in the rooftops of London and sail off to a magical Neverland in a giant flying pirate ship. What an ending.

I can't wait to find out what my munchkin will say one day... you should do a screenplay about you and your daughter... there's something extraordinary about ordinary life. ;-)

La Yen said...

You just know that Martha burned that prison pancho that Squeeky Frohme gave her...

Jenny--do a desperate MORMON housewives. Base it on 1740 West. Make me the hot one who does it with a gardner. (Waldo IS Latin...)

What is the moon full of? Cheese, of course, dear. Now go to sleep.

That's what I would have said, except that I'm this freakish, science-minded, have to explain everything person, so I probably went into some lengthy explanation of why it's called a "full" moon, and on and on explaining the phases of the moon. My poor kids.
