Munchkin Blues

Little Audrey seems to grow more and more bored as summer moves along. I don't blame her, she has run out of things to do and has no one to play with.

She hates sitting in her car seat, but when I need to be on the computer, she needs to sit there so I can watch her. She is giving me the "eye" again.

Me: It won't work, pumkin, it's time to sit in the car seat.

Audrey: NO! I'll be good, I promise!

Me: No, way, Jose. Up you go!

Audrey: I have to go potty. Really!

Me: Audrey, get back in your seat!

Audrey: I can stay up here and see everything better!
Me: No, get back in your seat.

Audrey: See, I can balance up here!
Me: I'm going to start counting....1.....2.....

Audrey: Whatcha doing? Can we go to

Audrey: I don't like this site, it doesn't have any pictures of kitties.

Audrey: Hey! Everything looks upside down!
Me" AUDREY! I can't read the news.....get back in your seat!

Audrey: Let me show you where is.

Me: Audrey, I think it's time for your nap! You need to stay in your seat or take a nap!

Audrey: I'll take a nap. okay? Just let me see something on sprout first.....

Me: AUDREY! You just stepped on the off button!

Audrey: I'll sit up here okay?

Audrey: OH! LOOK! The ice cream man! Can I have a ice cream????
Me: NO!

Audrey: Can I have a cookie then?

A Close Call

Me: Hold still!

Audrey: OUCH! I want barrettes!

Audrey: All pretty!

Audrey: It's a rainy day AGAIN!

Audrey: I bet Weedie loves rainy days!

Audrey: I don't have anyone to play with. Will you play with me?

Audrey watches the rain. It's not easy being the only child on the truck.

Weedie: Oh, what a lovely day! I adore rainy days! So deliciously wet!

Audrey: Hi, Weedie. Wanna play?

Weedie: Flowers don't play. Never. Don't know how.

Audrey: You never had a toy to play with, Weedie?

Audrey: I will give you a toy to play with.

Audrey: You have to hold it, Weedie. Can you hold things?

Weedie: I don't know. Ooooo...what's that GREEN thing?

Audrey: It's a froggy. Wanna hold it?

Weedie: OH NO! It's horrible!

Audrey: Oh well. I guess flowers don't play with toys. I will send a message to Aloe Vera to come back and play with me.

Weedie: Say, what's that building coming up?

Audrey: Uh oh. It's the Inspection Station!

Weedie: What does THAT mean?

Audrey: It means that we can't bring any plants across the border! Weedie! You've got to hide!

Weedie: What will they do to me?

Audrey: I don't know. You're a PLANT! A Stow-away and they will take you and do something to you...I don't know what, but it's sure to be AWFUL!

Audrey: Here, take this flashlight and hide in the glove compartment.

Weedie: Ow! You're crushing my lovely leaves!

Audrey: Moosh in there!

Weedie: ,mnmbvkbkdhahrfh!

Audrey: Shhhhhhh!

Audrey: There's no one in here!


Weedie: That sure was close! Thank you for saving me, Audrey.

Audrey: That's ok, Weedie. Don't go all limp now!

Bath Time

Little Audrey has dirty feet.

Audrey: NO I don't!

Yes she does. And that means B-A-T-H T-I-M-E.

Audrey: I don't want to take a bath!

Audrey: OUCH! You're pulling my hair!

Audrey: There's a whole bunch of water in here! I am going to drown!

Me: There is an inch of water, silly.

Audrey: Is this the slippery mat?

Audrey: I'm bored.

Me: Then recite a poem.



Three men in a tub,
And who do you think they be?

The butcher, the baker,
The candlestick maker,
They all jumped out of a rotten potato!
Turn 'em out knaves all three.

Audrey: Can I get out now? All CLEAN!

Audrey: No more baths!

Me: Behave yourself. We have to keep clean, even in a truck!

Audrey: ok. Can I have some cookies now?

Audrey: I NEED cookies!
Me: Why do you need cookies? You can go get one yourself.

Audrey: I can't 'cause I'll get my feet dirty!
