Flashback Friday! Boobie Crap!!!

This time I am only flashing back a few days because I need to document one of the silly things that Grace has done this week.
Monday evening we were preparing for FHE, I was making the treats and Lexi was working on the lesson when Grace went to work on her masterpiece. She started by drawing it out on a piece of paper, she feverishly drew out her plans and then brought me the paper for approval. I gave my motherly response anytime she hands me her art work "Good job, nice one!" she just kind of looked at me strangely and said "Is it perfect?" I said yes and before I could blink she was off to the next part of her plan. Grace then located a large ball of pink string and began stringing it from a door knob to James toy, to another door knob, to the washer and dryer, to yet another door knob until there was a web of pink string down the hallway. Then she very proudly came to me and said "See look Mom, it's done, I made my "BOOBIE CRAP!" I worked overtime not to laugh and turned around to inspect all her hard work, I asked her why she decided to make the "boobie crap" and this was her response "I made the boobie crap to catch the boogie man, it will stop him, shh be very quiet so he won't hear us."

At this point it all became very clear, she had in fact made a Boobie Trap to catch the boogie man that Daddy had so "sweetly" told her about. The drawing was a scetch of the "boobie crap" so she would know exactly where to place the string. I was quite impressed with her thought process, I wish I would have taken a picture of the "Boobie Crap" but it was destroyed when Daddy opened the door to our bedroom to come out and the string fell causing it to colapse. I am thinking about having her make another just so I can get a picture of her work! I love my Grace, she has such a great imagination and I love that she wanted to protect us from the boogie man by building a "Boobie Crap".

Life would be too boring without her!!



And just for fun here is a little Flashback Photo!

This is Matt Hammons & Me when we lived in Colorado!

I love your flashback photos! That is a great story, too! Evan once heard the word "boobie" on the radio during an ad. (Can't remember what on earth they were advertising!) He asked me what it meant, and not wanting to really explain it all to him, especially in the context of the ad, I did a little quick talking and convinced him that boobies were a kind of trap. True for older boys as well!

I definately want some pictures done before you leave. I don't want any right now, but maybe in a few months when Jy changes some more :). You will have to keep me posted on the possible move. We'll see each other at school (I also found the SECRET pick-up spot. I saw you there yesterday.

I totally change my mind about grace looking just like Jimmy, cause in those pictures you guys look the same! Maybe it's just the teeth but wow. I'm so glad you clarified "boobie crap" because here, who knows what that would mean.
