"But they is Rueberries"

This morning I was up early selling some stuff at a friends yard sale and so when I got home this afternoon I was exhausted! I decided that James and I would take a nap (provided by Jimmy) which was awesome, well I came out of my room feeling rested and Grace is standing in front of me with a bowl that had some lovely red beads in it. I focus my eyes and realize that the beads had once (as in earlier today) been a bracelet, my bracelet. I sent her to the "Naughty Spot" (thanks Nanny Jo) , she waited the 4 required minutes and then I came for "the talk", I explained to her that we do not cut mommy's jewelry, and she says "I know, I sorry, but they is Rueberries."

Now for those of you that are not familiar with the species of "Rue" in the berry world, it is a cross between Raspberries and Blueberries. It is the specified word for just about anything that mildly resembles a berry in the Grace dialect.

As much as I had enjoyed wearing the bracelet, it seems to function better as a Rueberry and in the scheme of important things it IS just a thing. Se La Vi

Oh Grace what are we gonna do with you?!

Sad you lost your bracelet out of it . . . but that is hilarious! And did she place them in the pan so neatly. She is a crack-up!

Marylin and Jimmy said...

Yes that would be her handy work placing each bead in it's own little spot! :)

Ok, that's funny...shouldn't be but it is!

Tom & Rachel said...

She cracks me up! She definitely sounds like she's giving you a run for your money. I'm glad you have a good perspective on it and realized that it was just a thing. I probably would have not remained as cool. Good job.

What a firecracker your Gracie is! She seems to always have the excuses that you cant help but laugh at!

How is it that us moms need to sleep with one eye open?

Sara Cecil Photography said... is what it is. I have lost more jewelry this way! I like that my kid isn't the only naked one!

Steph said...

I have heard her talk about Rueberries before too :) So funny!

Jess & Liz said...

Oh, she is a mischevious little one!! She sounds like only my Maddox could tame her! I was not kidding when I said you described my boys to a T in one of your previous posts about your daughters. My dear Maddox finds a way to pull apart anything he can get his hands on! :0) Gotta love them!
