Lately we’ve been reading a version of Sleeping Beauty FRE-QUENT-LY.
Laylee (wearing big pink wings): Magoo can be the wicked fairy. (to Magoo) You can be the wicked fairy.
Laylee (slamming Magoo’s head between two pillows): You’re the wicked fairy and I’m the good fairy. (slam slam)
Me: Laylee. Please stop hitting your brother.
Laylee: He’s the wicked fairy!
Me: Not anymore. He doesn’t like being the wicked fairy.
Laylee: Then YOU’re the wicked fairy.
Me: No I’m not.
Laylee: Yes you are the wicked fairy.
Me: No I’m not.
Laylee: Okay, I’m the wicked fairy.
Later today –
Laylee: We’re having juice for dinner.
Laylee: Did Jesus make this juice?
Me: Well, Jesus and Heavenly Father made the earth and they made the plants that grow on it. So they made..
Laylee: And goats?
Me: Yeah, goats too. So someone squeezed the apples to make juice.
Laylee: So Jesus made this juice?
Laylee: It’s easier to walk if you have feet. We have feet and so we can walk. Did Heavenly Father make us our green couch?
Me: Not really. He made the trees and then we used the wood to make the couch.
Laylee: Penguins are supposed to have wings.
Me: Yes, they do.
Laylee: So they want to fly.
Me: Yeah, but they can’t fly with their wings.
Laylee: Do penguins have fish on their movie (been watching ‘March of the Penguins’ lately)
Me: Yes, they eat the fish.
Laylee: What do the baby penguins eat?
Me: You know how Mommy eats food and then it turns into milk in my body like magic and Magoo eats it out of my breasts?
Me: Well, the momma penguins eat the fish and then it turns into special baby food inside of them and then they feed it to the baby penguins out of their mouth
Laylee (attentively): So it’s like magic. And the fairy godmother uses her wand to make a magic dress for Cinderella to wear. She can’t wear her pink dress if it gets ripped.
Laylee: But now Cinderella’s not lost.
Me: Oh? Where is she?
Laylee: She’s in the cupboard. See. (Runs to cupboard and pulls out the dvd case)
Laylee: Up please.
I lift her up.
Laylee: You are the strongest girl in the WORLD!
