The little patriot

Maia’s new thing is singing the national anthem.

“Oh-h-h say can you seeeee, by the dawn’s early lighhht!
What so prouuuudly we … mumble, mumble, mumble.
Mumble, mumble, mumble, mumble.

And the ROCKETS’ RED GLARE!!!
THE BOMBS MUMBLE IN AIR …

Mumble, mumble …

Oh-h-h say does that Star-Spangled Banner mumble waa-ave.
O’er the laand of the FREEEEEEEE!
And the home of the brave!”

And then the kicker:

“What’s up, America?”

Worst Christmas ever

A sleepy Maia accidentally pulled the head off her favorite doll and is now saying between sobs,

“You … were … the … best … doll … ever. This … is … the … worst … Christmas … ever.”

This is when being a parent is most challenging – trying not to smile while consoling her until she falls asleep.

My Precious

I made beef stroganoff this evening, which apparently is one of Maia’s favorites. I put her plate down in front her and she lowered her face to about two inches of her food and told it,

“You are my precious.”
