I want toddler logic to be my logic

Nana: “Do you like your new ballerina outfit? You look really pretty in it. Is that what you’d like to be when you grow up, a ballerina?”
Mia: “No. When I grow up I want to be a monster.”

Me: “Wear your blue dress with the white spots on.”
Mia: “NO! I look disgusting in that dress.”
Me: “You look like a lovely little girl in that dress.”
Mia: “Exactly!”

    Ah yes. Never tell MaxiMad that he is looking smart, Oh no. also he goes to the hairdresser and asks for a messey cut!!

    Mia's is a young lady after my own heart. Her comment about the blue spotty dress reminds me ofmy response to Mum's favourite party dress for me (burgundy velvet with a lace pilgrim collar – still shudder at the thought).

    That right there is child abuse Mandi – burgundy velvet with pilgrim collar? Shudder

    It took me 6 years to finally get my son to a hairdresser, now he's all vain and wants to go exactly every 6 weeks. Think it might have something to do with the young pretty girl who cuts his hair mind …

    I had to learn to stop telling my daughter she looked "pretty".
    When she got to about 6 she said "I don't like looking pretty, I like being cool."
    She's now 8 and is prepared to look pretty on certain occasions – but certainly not at Junior Youth Club.

    Too funny! I love the logic of little kids!

  7. Oh if only we could all be so bloody honest! Mia sounds like a character alright!

  8. Hmmm, wonder if there is more to this than meets the eye?

    I'm pretty sure when I was a little girl I wanted to grow up to be a monster. I think I still do, but that's another story. Mia sounds awesome!

    Oh no, I like the surfer dude look that my two sport and am dreading the day they have short hair.

  11. Tara says:

    Yeah, we had the surfer dude look too. Right up until he went into Year 1 at school and someone told him he looked like a girl. He couldn't get to the hairdressers quick enough!
