Le Artiste

This post is for my momma, who hasn't seen the Tongginator for awhile.

Tonggu Grammy, this is your daughter again. Please come visit soon. And don't be offended if I escape run a few errands while you're here to see the Tongginator. I'll try not to let the door hit me as I go.

Ya gotta love the "hose 'em down" days. Summer!!!

Hope your mom can come for a visit soon... sounds like you might NEED it more than T!

Blessings!

Rebecca Ramsey said...

I LOVE those paintings! And wearing bare feet!

Andrea said...

Love that! I could hear a little voice saying that while I read it -she's too funny!

Jboo said...

So funny!! It IS hard to get a word in some days, isn't it!

Too funny - that's how MG talks when she gets home from school. They just have so much to say. Tongginator makes good art :)

Sharie said...

Have you seen the Crayola sidewalk paint? Amelia got some from a friend and I think I had more fun with it than she did!
LOVE the pictures! It's so fun to get art from our girls.
Amelia informed me last week she is going to be an artist when she grows up:)

Peanut said...

Ok my eyes hurt, but it was worth it! LMAO!

I love seeing the progression of her art skills. It's nice to see that soon, I will have a body, instead of just being a head with arms and legs!!

DawnS said...

Ah the splits, I remember the days when I was able to do that. Oh wait - maybe that was just a dream!

Does she talk like that all the way through dinner? Rylee also talks this way ALL the time, but even more so through dinner. I've checked more than once for the off switch...

Jillene said...

hehe!! I loved this post beause that is EXACTLY how my girls talk!! Oh and I love the picture of her doing the splits!!

Aunt LoLo said...

BWAHAHAHAHAHA Oh dear, that is HILARIOUS. And the painting outside is BRILLIANT. And...Tonggu Grammy better come soon, because I think the Tongginator might pull a muscle in her tongue if she keeps monologuing like that!!

Patricia/NYC said...

OK...that was me who deleted my comment...that's what I get for trying to be cute with my comment...so cute that it ran right off the page!! Here goes again:

Buckeroomama said...

I love her drawings! Just look at all the colors that she used. :)

Marla said...

Hahaha. Lovin' the run-on sentences. :) That looks like the perfect spot for painting, and those are some very cute pics.

bbmomof2boys said...

People tell me all the time that I'll complain when Little T talks like that...but I can't wait! At night she'll take her little hand and put it on my face and say "mama" then she'll start "talking" about her day! I swear she has Italian in her because she talks so much with her hands - so cute. I have NO clue what she is saying but I can always tell if its good or bad by her facial expressions and what she does with her hands.

Love the art!

Hugs,
Carla

Love it! :-)

Tonggu Grammy said...

I really CAN hear you now! Wait, that was a gulp for air. Tongginator, Grammy is coming as soon as she can. School lets out the beginning of June AND I RETIRE!!!!!! So I will belong to you and your cousins by summertime. Oh, and I guess to your parents as well if they get desperate. Your mommy sounds nearly desperate right now.

Briana's Mom said...

Ok - I'm tired just reading that. :) Briana is beginning to talk like that now too. Doesn't take a breath - at all.

Tonggu Grammy better get there soon or the Tongginator might just explode. ;)

alece said...

if i could do the splits, i'd paint a picture of it too!

Myrnie said...

In a few years, you'll be VERY glad you wrote this down I think- adorable!

Johnny said...

I was imagining you have a mental video recorder in your head where you slow down her speech so you can interpret your whirling dervish.

Mei-Ling said...

...

Holy hell that was hard to read.

CC said...

I could totally understand her. She and I must think alike. ;)

Love the pics!!!

And the stance while painting is awesome.

Michelle said...

Lovely splits!! And claws? I think you really need to post some full face pictures of you and T soon because we really are getting quite the visual. lol

Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...

I want to see you do a split like that!! We need a real picture...you can even crop out your face:)

Love those little fast talking girls...i am sure I will have one on my hands in the next year or so:)
