The best of both worlds

It seems my daughter, my baby daughter...has turned 4 years old on me. Something just feels so wrong about it.

In the last year she has accomplished many things..

*she can talk...holy shit, I can understand 90% of what she says now. if you can get thru her studdering...God bless her cotton socks

*she can wipe her own ass...this was a big one..

*she does not need her toilet seat for on top of the shitter anymore, her ass is big enough and her arm muslces are strong enough to hold her up...yippee for her.

*she can unbuckle her own seat belt, although she sometimes does it at the wrong time, such as when we are in the drivethru anywhere.

She is growing up, and although its painful for me, I know its good for her.

This time last year she was a Wiggle addict. I did not mind because, holy shit, have you seen the blue Wiggle?...I mean he is dreamy, and has an accent to boot.

Now she is all about Hannah Montana. But the scary thing with this is, I sit and watch the show, and think...when the hell did Billy Ray Cyrus get good looking?

Its hard for me..

We own every Hanna cd...ok...her only cd...but we listen to it nightly.

Here are some shots of my baby girl.




She is kinda cute....

She has a lot of common sense, but lacking in the book sense dept..

for instance....she can not spell or write her own name..

she can not count much past...well...17..

she thinks M,N,O,P are all ONE letter in the alphabet..

She will be riding the short bus this year to nursery school, I just hope she gets smarter so they let her in Kindergarten next year.

She also has quite a gift for song and dance. But you will just have to take my word for it. She has Mad Skills

My baby is four, she starts school, she wipes her own ass, she has hair down to her genitals, and she is cute.

She loves cheese sticks, spaghetti and chicken nuggets from The Golden Arches. Her arteries will thank me later.

Blondie bought her a 15 dollar toy for a buck...from the girl she was selling one dollar Graham cracker squares with..seems my girl is the brains of that operation.

I tell Shaky I need another I get a warm fuzzy feeling looking at the old baby pictures.

He told me he is going to get one of the baby dolls that cry like a real baby..the ones they make teen girls take home for a school projects to detour them from pre-marital sex.

I told him it might be a good idea...but to get me an ugly one.

Happy Birthday Boo....

being 4 kicks ass...

or so I am assuming..

girl, did I sleep thru Tuesday? LOL I check in every day but haven't been commenting. Seems like the animals think all my time is theirs. Tell Bo she can have a goat for her birthday if she comes and gets it! :)

Neurotic1 said...

Happy Birthday Boo! Keep up the sass! Great job on your accomplishments this year! If you ever wanna hunka hunka burnin' love a little younger than yourself, come meet Dorcas! He's lacking in the book dept. too ;)

Flip Flop Goddess said...

she is on her way...she likes animals;)

she said brains dont matter...just as long as he has his own hotwheels.

Happy Birthday Boo!

Let's rub baby girls together (get yer mind outta the gutter) and hope that Boom rubs some book sense off on her and she rubs some common sense off on Boom. She has the attention of a fruit fly and gets lost in a hallway. But damned if she isn't smarter then she ought to be.

Scarlet said...

Boo is a cutie! I like the one of her flopping around in her bed. I hope she has the best birthday EVER!! And I hope she never loses "her sense of wonder, always get her fill but always keep that hunger..." :)

Gette said...

Happy Birthday Boo!

Humincat said...

Happy, Happy Birthday Boo baby! I think you should ask for more crayons for your birthday, since Momma probably threw yours away when she saw your bedroom walls!!! And you may want to trim your locks, so mom will stop saying down to your genitals, it kind of freaks me out....

Katie said...

Happy Birthday Boo!

Flip Flop Goddess said...

all three of mine have the attention span of a fruit fly as well..they would all get along well.

that is a cute one, she fell asleep whilst pulling her blankie off the are happy little retards.

well her walls have chalk boards on thats chalk u prolly see..I put chalk booards on the walls just for that purpose.

she has ahir to her gentials..there..did I freak u out again?

Flip Flop Goddess said...

she thanks u;)

Angie said...

it goes too too fast!!!

Happy Birthday Boo may it be full of happiness and I hope your love for Hannah will soon pass as I don't think your mom or dad can handle your mother's secret love for Billy Ray....god help you all ;)

just_tammy said...

Ummm, is Boo missing a vital piece of swimsuit in the one photo and doing her version of the Coppertone ad?

Hope she has a wonderful fourth birthday with lots of cake and presents!

Flip Flop Goddess said...

ok, he really did get good looking..

yes, she is missing a vital piece o* swimsuit...but she is cute anyway right?

just_tammy said...

Sorry I mentioned the Coppertone pic. Didn't mean for you to remove it. I'm so wiped out I just wasn't quite sure and probably shouldn't have even noticed. It's just she so darn brown. Guess since I'm so darn white and jealous...

Slick said...

Awwww, now she's a little cutie!!

Happy BDay to'er and everything. Looks like you got your hands full :)

Flip Flop Goddess said...

no, it was not u....the hubs also made mention that I should take it down, and really, I had no idea she was missing bottoms until I had it posted already..

thanks....she is a handful alright..her and her siblings keep this fat momma on her toes.

Tom said...

Please give my best to Boo!!!
Only 12 years and she can get her learner license for the car (don't know what MN age is, just guessing). If I were there, I'd shake her hand and buy her a chocolate milk and some chicken nuggets.

Wendy said...

She sounds like a completely normal 4 year old to me! We had our first day of preschool today. Now I want another one so bad I found myself shopping in the baby department at Target today. Scary!

Wendy said...

Flip Flop Goddess said...

aww, *oster babies? nice...your so lucky..

and Boo thanks u or the b-day wishes;)

Jessica Foster said...

Love the photos. She looks like a real character! You had me laughing with "She can wipe her own ass!" That was the best line in Big Daddy!

Yippeeskip said...

Happy Birthday Boo. I love the pic of the girls at the lake.
My 4 year old likes blondes maybe they can date, share nuggets. She can teach him to wipe his ass and eat something besides nuggets. He can teach her to spell her name. They can share that the Wiggles are SO yesterday.
His mom would LOVE to see a pic of his mom topless.

Flip Flop Goddess said...

Oh, your right, I forgot about that line in Big Daddy..I Love that damn movie...

thnaks for dropping by.

well, maybe we can set up an arranged marriage or something.

aatank said...

Happy Birthday Boo!! May this next year bring you many new talents.

As for another baby, just trick him into it or brib him or something. Maybe you should get your daycare going first, cause maybe you'll change your mind.

Tee said...

Awhhh. Why do they grow up so quick? I love the pic of her in a nest of blankets. LOL.

Happy birthday to Boo :)

Vani said...

Michele_3 said...

Happy Birthday Boo!
We have to get monkey D and her to meet- They are too cute!!!

I know when my little guy turned 4 a few weeks ago, I brought out the baby pictures,(& the tissues) it is UNREAL how fast times flies anymore..

Flip Flop Goddess said...

I know..isnt that one too cute?...

Vani, far..its a smashing day;)

Moi said...
