Pink trees are a catastrophe!

What they're saying lately...

I'm SO glad you're having tea with me today, mommy, because we don't get to have tea together very often. [Said by GIRL as we went across the street to our friends' house for a Spring Equinox tea party. It has become a tradition for us to have tea on the Summer & Winter Solstice and the Fall & Spring Equinox. Just 2 mommies & 2 little girls.]
..............................................................

We won't be pregnant for a loooong time. [Stated emphatically by BOY. That one definitely got MY attention.]

BOY, do you know what pregnant is?

Yes.

What?

It means you're old. [Oh, wise, wise BOY...if you only knew how old it really makes you...]
..................................................................

Mommy, I hope we don't see any cranky ladies. [Yes, hope springs eternal, my GIRL.]

Last time you went to TJ's a cranky lady beeped at you and a cranky lady bonked BOY with the cart. [I do seem to recall this, yes.]

I think cranky ladies wake up really late. Or maybe they're just cranky. [Perhaps GIRL has a point.]
.......................................................................

Oh! Look at that gorgeous pink tree! I LOVE that pink tree. [Me, as we're humming along in the minivan, reveling in the spring colors.]

I HATE pink trees. Pink trees are a catastrophe! [BOY, appearing to take issue with the pink trees in the neighborhood.]

Crap. I'm pregnant (according to Boy's logic).

A catastrophe? Hilarious. See if you can arrange a better color next season.

So funny.

Love it! LOL Thanks for stopping by my place. Weather is not improving mixed bag of precip coming tonight...YUK
I want some pink trees!

Janet said...

Boy would love it here. No pink trees. No pink trees at all. I, however, am in mourning for pink trees. I'm wondering if all the redbuds died in last year's freeze.

Mary Alice said...

I love your tradition. Every day I hope I don't run into any cranky ladies....that can be a REAL catastrophe!

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

Maybe the cranky ladies just found out they're pregnant!

OMG! The catastrophic pink trees go BEA-U-TIFULLY with your new look!

It's so pretty & matchy!

Jen said...

I love the tea tradition. What a great thing to do with GIRL. I'm sure that will always be a special memory for her. Do you wear dresses and big hats?

Madge said...

oh those pink trees! maybe they could use a pink branch for self defense at TJs!

I LOVE the tea idea. How much fun.
The only catastrophe about those trees is that you have them and I have a snowstorm.
Yep, drove through snow on the way down.
Grrr.

MamaGeek said...

Why is it I love everything that BOY says? I just love his logic!

And I lurve the tea idea.

flutter said...

The boy clearly needs to get in touch with his feminine side....

Lisa Milton said...

I'm with the others - no not the Lost others, the blogger others - what great word choice, coming up with catastrophe.

Makes it all worthwhile, hearing that...

HRH said...

My boys agree with BOY about pink.

I am PINK with envy over tea. =)
