Tiny Moment * Day 16

"What the Hell"
You are probably thinking "What the H***" is this picture about? Or "What the H***" is she going to write? In reality you are probably not thinking that but it was awfully fun to write. Anyone that knows me is just sure that the "What the H***" title is simply about the play doh. It's true I am not the biggest fan of play doh. As crazy as it sounds I am warming up. The kids love it and it keeps them busy for nearly 2 hours every time they play. I do enjoy listening in on their creative play and looking at all the fun things they drum up. "What the H***" really could be the fact that my son used his bum to create play doh hair? What? I know too much information. He cracks me up. I wonder where he comes up with this stuff. The title actually comes from words. . .and actions. . and understanding that there are little people running around my house listening. Listening to everything. Listening all the time. I have known this but it has been reconfirmed to me that there are four little mini-me's running around everywhere. They do what I do. Saying what I say. They have picked up similar mannerisms. As we were picking up play doh Max looked down at his pants and blurted out, "What the H***!" He said it so innocently and almost matter of factly. There was a huge smug of play doh on his pants. I just cracked up. After I pulled myself together I asked him where he learned that little phrase. My sweet boy was really embarrassed and didn't have a clue what the word meant. I don't even think he remembered where he heard it. But he heard it somewhere and he remembered. So mommy's out there. . .do remember that you too have little mini me's watching your every move.

Oh my gosh.. I'm sitting here laughing because I can just see Max!!! And he's your word patrol!! I agree with you about them picking up every little phrase. Like "What the heck!" We're all famous for that one and they have popped it out more than once. It's a good thing it's not too bad. Thanks for sharing and giving me an early morning laugh and watch those words! LOL

Play do is wonderful, I love that the kids will stay occupied for hours and hours with that stuff. Don't like the mess but love the activity.

I appreciated that post and wasn't think what the H*** at all! Play doh is a staple at our house, we love it and play it everyday! Yes, they are parrots and do repeat everything you say. My Kayla 18months old is running around saying s*h*i*t... Max you are too cute, I love how inncoent they are even as they get older!
