really?

Been sitting at this screen staring out the blinking cursor for well over twenty minutes. The thing is, nothing I can say can add to that shot. Or that child. The child who is so very into helping herself to shredded carrots (or spinach!) and spending a little quiet time learning about the presidents. I mean, I just can’t add to that.

My kid is weird.

 And for those of you who went on and on about her cute daddy in yesterday morning’s post, I’m here to tell you – she may have gotten her cuteness from him but the weirdness was part of that package as well.

THAT is awesome. 🙂 If you want, I could come over and circle the good ones and mark out the bad ones. 😉

Oh my gosh Jackie, that totally made me laugh!

She’s a card! I love a kid that marches to the beat of their own drum (sounds better than “weird.”) My friend Amy always tells me “Your kids aren’t normal.” Normal is so boring! ;- ) P.S. Yes, good looks abound in your family o’ 4!

Oh how I love your blog – it makes me realize that my child is not alone in her quirky-ness!

I love the backwards “S”. And the look in her eye, like she is up to something.

I love the nerdy things little ones do! Megan is totally into anatomy & physiology, and the solar system! “Tell me about Earth, Mommy!” She drew her 4-year-old version of a digestive system on a picture of a Thanksgiving turkey a few months ago.

I think it is AWESOME that she is interested in the presidents! I had my 9 year old watching a OLD school House Rocks DVD of the multiplication facts songs. Then my 4 year old was skipping through the house singing them. They are sponges! Let them soak up all of this knowledge before they realize it is boring stuff! 🙂

I embrace the weird. It helps to be the weird one every now and then. I have the “weird” shirt from “The Pretty Shirt” dot com.

Also, this is way out in left field, and I missed your question session. I was just wondering if you’ve ever trespassed for photography, and if so have you gotten caught ever?

girl, at least sarah’s not geeky. my 3-year-old already knows all about her planets & dinosaurs. (those are the only books she’ll seek out when we go to the bookstore.) oh, and why she’ll never be popular? she’ll bust out the baby & child care book, which has pictures of different ailments & conditions in the back, and she’ll start naming them off. yes, my child can identify a sty, baby acne, conjunctivitis, mongolian spots, etc.

HAHA!

truth be told, i love that she’s a little geek like her daddy. that’s why i married him! 😉

Aunt LuFebruary 26, 2010 - 8:15 pm

Well she is the cutest nerd I ever did see!

Janelle AndersonFebruary 26, 2010 - 8:48 pm

We love that handsome man of yours and that adorable little girl…okay, we love your whole beautiful family despite the weirdness. Secretly, we love ‘weirdness’ too and experience it daily. Does weirdness attract weirdness? If so, I think Lucas is still in good with Sarah. Half the day he was a tornado. The other half, a black hole. Bedtime stories now come from a science book called, “500 Things You Should Know About Science.” Nebulas…digestion…space…eye balls…oh, I could go on and on. I’m learning so much! 🙂

Yes, weirdness is the best! Janelle, Lucas and Sarah seem destined for each other for sure.
