Throwback Thursday

In the spirit of "Throwback Thursday," I wanted to share with you some of my favorite things that Lucy has ever said. Before I had this blog, I had Facebook, and that's where I originally posted these gems. I hope you'll join me on this stroll down memory lane...

July 25, 2012
I just picked up one of my sweaters, which was hanging on the back of a kitchen chair. It had a sticker on it. I asked Lucy, "Did you hide a sticker on Mommy's clothes?" She replied (and I kid you not), "Gotcha." She is two years old.

Lucy is singing. "Rock-a-bye, baby. A tree top. Blows tree rock. Yee-haw!" Um, I'm not sure that's *exactly* how it goes.

Lucy had a gymnastics class today, where she learned how to straddle her legs. I know this because she showed me how she can straddle all the way home in the car, by throwing her legs wide open and screaming, "I doing straddles! High five!" Then we had a little talk about there being a time and a place for this particular exercise...

Today, as Lucy was coloring with a pen, I told her to be careful and to try not to poke her eye out. She replied, "Of course! You don't poke crocodiles!" Exactly.

November 25, 2012
Lucy just ran into the living room, naked as the day she was born, and announced, "It's show time!" OMG...

December 6, 2012
A typical morning conversation...ME: Lucy, eat your breakfast. LUCY: How 'bout watch Dora? ME: No, eat your breakfast. LUCY: how 'bout Diego? ME: No, eat. LUCY: How 'bout Calliou? ME: No! LUCY: How 'bout yes?

January 5, 2013
LUCY: Mommy, you got your bed pants on? ME: Yes, they are my jammies, just like you wear. LUCY: You got a pink shirt too? ME: I sure do. LUCY: You got a bra on? ME: Um, not at the moment. LUCY: You got your nipples on? ME: I always do. LUCY: I got my nipples on too! Yay Lucy and Mommy!

February 1, 2013
Lucy on leading a parade: "I will shake my maracas and march. I not wearing pants. Take off your clothes and march with me!" What kind of parade has this kid been watching?!

February 24, 2013
Oscar the dog is lying next to me on the couch, fast asleep and snoring. Lucy walks over to him and says, "No, Oscar. That's not YOUR noise...that's Daddy's noise!"

March 24, 2013
At the cash register at Target with Lucy this afternoon…she turns to the cashier and says, “I just tooted, but that’s okay. Can I have a sticker?”

April 29, 2013
ME: Lucy, what do you want to be when you grow up? LUCY: Monkey bars! ME: You want to be monkey bars?? LUCY: Yes, you have to have a lot of patience to be monkey bars. ME: Of course you do. LUCY: Or, I could be a ghost, a tree, or a ladder. ME: Maybe we need to review what a profession is again…

June 10, 2013
Lucy on her day at pre-school: "I didn't cry, I didn't bleed, I didn't shove anyone, and I didn't sit in the Sassy Seat." Am I sending her to pre-school or fight club?!

June 24, 2013
ME (to Will): Now, baby, stop spitting out that paci! LUCY (concerned): Is Baby Will not listening to you? ME: It's okay. Babies don’t really listen and follow directions. LUCY: Like daddies? ME: Exactly. But, babies don’t get in trouble for it!

July 5, 2013
Lucy is sitting on my lap with her ahead against my chest. She turned her head and, for some unknown reason, smelled my boob. She says, “Mommy, your nipples smell like hot dogs!” What the…?!?!

And a blog was born. I still can't wait to hear what Lucy says next!



  1. What a great way to stat the morning! LOL

  2. Lucy is full of life and character and in a weird way, wisdom. I'm so glad you're taking it all down.
