The Ms Action Page

I’ll try to update this regularly with things Ms Action does that tickle my funny bone, make me proud, or touch me in any way.

All these below here are ones I brought over from my old blog

10/17/12 – chopped her hair off because she was so over the Rapunzel hair style. And by chopped, I mean butchered. Kinda like a boy’s bowl cut, but weirder. Parts of it were chopped so short there wasn’t even enough to pinch between you fingers, and other parts hadn’t even been touched by the scissors. Thank goodness for hair salons. She was sporting a pixie cut for a while.

9/21/12 – Ms Action fell and hit her nose. As I was comforting her, and she seemed to be doing better, I tried to draw her attention elsewhere, like to her cupcake. I told her to look at the yummy almond butter icing and that if she didn’t eat it soon, it was probably going to melt. I told her “the icing is saying ‘come eat us’.”. She looked at me like I’d lost it, and replied “icing doesn’t talk!”

9/1/12 – Ms Action: daddy, go get me salt and vinegar chips
daddy: are you gonna give me money?
Ms Action: I don’t make money, you do!

8/14/12-Ms Action played some Angry Birds for a while. I put the timer on and told her “when the timer beeps, then time is up and you need to stop playing.” Ms Action replied “I don’t want time to be up, I want it to be down!”

8/10/12-Ms Action declared the ants (who keep coming into the house from who knows where and for who knows what reason) are from “ant-artica”

7/17/12-feeling Ms Piggy’s head “she has hair! Now she’s a baby! I mean, a baby with hair”

7/17/12-sitting at a redlight, Ms Action said “mommy, look! The trees are dancing!” I said “Yes, they are” and she asked why they were, so I said maybe because they were happy to be out in the sunshine, and Ms Action said “NO, it’s because of the wind!” lol

4/28/12– “mommy, you can’t have the baby tomorrow. I have to go to Awana Store!”

4/26/12 – one of the fish died, so we “buried it at sea” (ie, flushed it down the toilet) Ms Action solemnly carried the net with the fish in it, turned it upside down over the toilet and let the fish plop into the toilet. Then, she flushed and said “bye-bye”…except that it didn’t flush. Once again flush, and “bye-bye”. Once again, the fish just swirled around the bowl, coming to rest directly in front of Ms Action. One more time – flush – and “bye-bye” and FINALLY the fish went to where ever it is fishy’s flushed down the toilet go.

4/24/12 – As I was leaving Ms Action’s bedroom from our goodnight routine, she suddenly bounded up saying “we forgot to hug”, came to the end of the bed – this bed has a sort of tallish footboard – and leaned over to hug me. I leaned in, then suddenly, she picked her legs up. Since I’m preggo, my balance is already off, so I started falling OVER the footboard, dropped Ms Action onto the bed and barely managed to catch myself from tumbling headfirst after her.

April 8, 2012 – One night at Cubbies, the leader was having them practice singing out loudly for the parent night, so they’d be heard while singing the Cubby song. I told Ms Action to sing out as loudly as she could. Boy, did she ever sing loud! She didn’t hit a single right note, but when she was singing, she was the ONLY one you could hear. It was more like bellowing. I was already exhausted, so lost all control and couldn’t stop laughing. But, she sang her little heart out 

April 14, 2012 – At the ER, she was allowed to play her video game, but kept saying she was bored. Also kept saying she was “all better now so we can go home NOW”

April 14, 2012 – Ms Action (before ER visit) threw up all over her bed and asked “mama, why does the fever make me pee out of my mouth?”

March 2012 – Me to Ms Action: good night, little one
Her response: good night, big one

March 2012 – this morning I spilled one of Ms Action’s games right before we sat down to eat, so after we ate, of her own accord, she started cleaning it up! Yes, I’m bragging a bit, she’s cleaning it up so “mama doesn’t trip on it and get hurt”…

Spring 2012 – Ms Action: Mom, we can never put DVDs in the washer?
Leilani: yeah, you’re not supposed to do that!

(About 3-4 months previously, I accidentally washed a case that had a few of her DVDs in them; funny thing is, that after going through the washer and dryer, they STILL worked)

Summer 2011– One of Ms Action’s horsey’s was missing a tail, so her very creative “fix” was to take a fake flower, put it in the tail hole and now, waalaa, horsey has a tail!!

Fall 2011 – Ms Action: mommy, I can’t go to sleep, I don’t have enough strength.
