Starting the Day Right

During breakfast yesterday morning, after a rather lengthy discussion about behavior and attitude adjustments...

TONGGU MOMMA: Tongginator, I just saw you roll your eyes at me. That is not acceptable.

TONGGINATOR: I wasn't doing that, Momma. Really. (long pause) I was making rainbows with my eyeballs.

Y'all,
I ran from the room to hide my laughter. She was In Serious Trouble... I just had to stop laughing first.

Only seven years, 49 weeks and three days until she becomes a teenager. Officially anyways.

She is only preparing to be the VERY BEST of U of H mascots. She can put on a rainbow costume AND make rainbows with her eyes. How talented is that?

Leaving for the airport --- love all of you!

Sherri said...

Hahahahahaha! You are in for the ride of your life when she becomes a teenager! I speak from experience!

Why are you up so early?

Rhonda said...

Bwahahahaha!

I think Tonggu Daddy needs to buy you a paddle for your next birthday, because once the Tongginator turns 13, you're clearly going to be up a certain creek without one. ;)

Stefanie said...

How could you NOT laugh at that? That is positively hysterical. Seriously. You ARE in trouble with that girl!! :)

Jennifer said...

Well, you already know that is hilarious, so need need to repeat that... but like the others said, you are indeed in serious trouble if she is already that clever by 5!

Kati said...

Haha.. only "seven years, 49 weeks and three days"!! Kids!

Aunt LoLo said...

Well, the next time she's in trouble, you can "shoot unicorns" from your eyes! LOL Oh dear...she's so very CREATIVE! hahahaha

Mom to 5...Daughter of the King said...

Oh, no she didn't!! Too funny!

bbmomof2boys said...

Everyone has told you that YOU are in serious trouble - oh my, I do feel for you. All I can say is that when they hit the teen years, look out. It can get pretty rough. Case in point? This morning I found myself in the car waiting for my 16 yr old to come out. He gets in the car, no books. Did he brush his teeth - nope - so off he goes! Yep - he was late to school and I was beyond furious...


Hugs,
Carla

Gail said...

Oh TM...we are so gonna get it when our kids are teenagers. Mwaaaa!!!! I see glimpses of it in my house too at times. Seriously, being a parent to a teenager isn't too bad. Though I know I've blocked some of those more challenging moments from my brain.

The Tongginator is a funny one. :)

Saint Louis Family Robinson said...

Ohmigosh... that sounds SO like Josie!!!! Unbelievable!

It is doubtful I will make it to the teenage years. I'm giving myself a metal if I make it to 8!

Pug Mama said...

I hate when they do something - when you are SUPPOSED to remain very serious - that makes you crack up.

and buckle up mama - NOTHING prepares you for the teenage years. That's all I'm sayin'.....

Dawn said...

Oh, my... I have one of those, too.

Blessings!

Suzie said...

That is too cute! At least you have seven years to prepare for when she become a teenager!

Jboo said...

Funny!! Yeah, you'd better start preparing now for the teen years!

Mandi said...

Too funny! We have lots of moments like this with our youngest and he is a boy! Many times I find myself trying not to laugh at something he has said or done that is inappropriate.

At our house it was dubbed "lookin up" by the culprit. Rainbows are oh so much more creative! Love it!

LaLa said...

Yeah, gotta give her props for trying : ) I am soooo afraid of our girls as teens...so much drama already. It will make the Terrible Threes seem like nothing !!

Carol @SheLives said...

It's going to be the shortest seven years, 49 weeks and thee days of your life! And the longest. Until you get there. Then it flies by so quickly that you think it's never going to end.

Kids are a total juxtaposition. How can people who are that cute require so much patience and self-control.

Rainbows with my eyes...heh! That's a good one!

jen@odbt said...

ROFL! I'm going to use that line when my kids say something ridiculous. She's a smart one.

Briana's Mom said...

LOL! She has an answer for everything doesn't she? :)

Jillene said...

hehe!! I have 2 girls that do that but the kicker is that they add "DUH" into the mix. I can't wait until they are teenagers (OH YES I CAN)!!

Valarie Lea said...

That is awesome! She is gonna be a handful that one. Very smart cookie!

Patricia/NYC said...

OH MY GOSH!!! Our girls are WAAAAAY TOO MUCH ALIKE!!!! This is something right out of K's mouth!! We ARE IN TROUBLE!!!!!! lol!!

Georgia Peach said...

hahahahaha....hilarious. :0)

Kiy said...

Oh my gosh! I too would have been running out to laugh! We have to hide our smiles and laughs too, I am totally scared about when Emi gets to be T's age! Oh my. OH MY!

Thanks for sharing, cute story! Good luck gal, Kiy

Janet said...

Hmmm....sometimes I make rainbows with my eyes too. It can't be helped. :-)

day by day said...

Too funny! Even funnier that you are counting down till the lovely teenage years. lol!

prechrswife said...

I would have had to leave the room on that one, too.

Quirky Mom said...

*****SNORT*****

Suzy said...

And have you ever noticed how physically PAINFUL it is not to laugh? I try biting my lip and squinting to try to look stern, but running off to laugh and compose yourself afterward really IS the best course of action.

Misty said...

i wonder if she thought she was in more trouble b/cs you left the room??? i alwasy suspect bear knows when he's being funny, so i can only imagine T does too!! :) that was a classic-for-the-books, er blog story!!! and aunt lolo's unicorns, omg hysterical!

Adventures In Babywearing said...

Oh, HOW funny! I can't wait until Ivy has conversations with me and I only wonder what she'll say!

Steph

mumma to many said...

Oh My coughing does help hide laughter too! ;)
The statements children make are at times just too much for us to bear! LOL!
Hugs Ruth in NZ

Shawnstribe said...

Special K said...

Oh she's good. Reeeeeally good.
You're in trouble.

Nicki said...

LOL... She sounds A LOT like Little Bear! If the two of them ever got together, it would be Hell On Wheels! ;)

happygeek said...

rainbows eh?
Gotta love it when they think on their feet like that.

Kayce said...

Classic!!!! LOL!!

Tammy said...

Bwah ha ha ha ha..... I feel your pain, sister. I really do. I got enough sass at my house to share with 3 families.

Sharon said...

So so cute!! We are having the same issues here! I am glad we are in this together! (The teens know better!)

Sharie said...

Oh my word she is 1 smart cookie!!!

Monica said...

Oh, yes...the countdown until the TEENS...believe me, there will be LOTS more "rainbows" then!!!

What a quick, creative mind she has!!! Sounds like she is REALLY good at digging herself out of a hole!

Sarah said...

Oh. My. God. She is totally my hero (in a matter of speaking). I had to read this to my mom, who also finds this hillarious!

Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...

What a comeback....I think you are in trouble in a few years!! I would have run out too....that is hilarious!

RamblingMother said...

OO boy she has a quick wit! My nephew (who is now 16) when he was a bit younger than tonginator stuck his tongue out at his mom with the hands on side of his head and everything, she turned around an caught him but before she could scold him he said, "Wookit, I'm a waindeer." Heh.

mommy24treasures said...

oh what a little genius! Truly!

a little leprechaun said...

Priceless!! Well, she does want to go somewhere with a rainbow mascot...

Hope everyone is feeling better and having a good week!!

Rainbows with my eyes. That is flat out funny!!

Michelle said...

Seriously, T is a riot. She takes after you... and you take after your mama. "I was making rainbows with my eyeballs." HILARIOUS!! You totally need to send this into Good Housekeeping or Guideposts.

Colleen said...

ROTFL she is good!!!!!! I like it. I think I'm going to try that with dh...

Debbie said...

She is ahead of her time!

PIPO said...

I LOVE that answer...what a quick mind.

Heh, I thought I was good when I was 7 years old...I peed my bed which had flowered sheets and told my mom I just wanted to water the flowers.

'Rainbows' beat that one hands down.

Myrnie said...

oh dear...kids are SO creative when it comes to getting out of trouble, aren't they? :)

All Rileyed Up said...

LOL!!! Our daughters should never meet while teenagers. I cannot even begin to imagine what partners-in-crime they would be :)

Gina (Caleeo) said...

LOL very, very funny! Maybe instead of counting down to teenager you should count down to departing the teen age years. :)

Jamie said...

Rainbows with her eyeballs -- ha ha ha! Oh, she's good.

And so are you, if you actually managed to keep the laughter in until after you fled the room. :D

CC said...

No way. Rainbows???? What will she think of next?? :) :)

3 Peanuts said...

Oh she is a sly one:)

Dita said...

Sounds like T is a chip off the ole' TM! She is gonna give you one heck of a run for your money, girl!!

Love, love, love this!

alece said...

she is brilliant!
