Well if you read the below post Abby (5) spent most of her day trying to a catch some birds. The night ended with her finally catching a cricket, it is not bird but for her it will do. By the time she needed to get into bed she was baby talking it and building it a fortress to sleep with her (of course inside the Tupperware container) As I said goodnight to her she was in deep thought she asked me
"Mom can spiders, you know, like open things?" I told her no. Then she said "Mom what about octopus can they open jars?" I said yes. She then asked me if octopus can come out of the water. My poor child, this is her big concern of the day if an octopus is going to climb out of the water and creep into her room and open the lid to her cricket jar and nab her baby. I would love to climb into her head and just see what is going on in there.


Well my sweet little funny bunny. Here is what she has been up to lately.

On the way to Sprouts she proclaimed that girls in Turkmenistan don't wear clothes, they go to all girl parties naked, even girls that are not from Turkmenistan. I asked her calmly, it is very cold there what if they freeze their boom booms off, she said, "Well sometimes that just happens."
As always Dead Pan Abby

Today she wore her bee wings, no shirt messy hair and blueberry shake mustache, to catch a bird. Her plan was to disguise herself as a bird, stay low to the ground and set a trap. She had Nettie following her around with matching yellow bumble bee wings. They gathered pumpkin seeds, lunch meat, and flowers. The logic in this was to catch all kind of birds, specifically a vulture, a crow and a hummingbird, to keep as pets of course. She was kind enough to ask Mason if he would like to have a bird as well. Towards the end of this 2 hour game she also added a boiled egg so that a vulture flying through the air would see it and think it was hers and fly down to get it, at that point she would catch it by it's feet and stick it in a cage. Genious really. The dogs loved the food laid on the ground, it frustrated Abby to no end because everytime she turned around a chihuhahua and a yorkie mix were there to spoil her plan.

She has been obsessed with where the center of the earth is. She asked me if if there was a snot pit at the center of the earth. I am learning that Abby is wayyyyyyy grosser than the boys. I guess I knew that about girls, I mean really we can be crude. We as girls also posess the ability to really describe things, we have been gifted with words and expression to really drive home the point.

Currently we are watching "Journey to the Center of the Earth" in sticking with the theme.
