She Is Merida

And she’ll be shootin’ fer her OWN hand.

(She really says “I’ll be shootin’ fer my own plans”, but whatever. She’s 3. SHE’S GOING TO BE FAMOUS. WATCH OUT HOLLYWOOD. Here comes Nellie.)

The First Rule of Fight Club

So I have this cold thing that’s been hanging around in my face for almost a week now. It started with a little bit of a sore throat that made me say, “Boy, this sinus drainage is making me have a little bit of a sore throat.” And then it continued with a tickle on the left side of my throat. Then it just sort of hung around, making me tired and feel just bad enough to not want to do anything, but not bad enough to not actually do anything.

It finally manifested into something yesterday – which is good, because now I’m hoping it will go the hell away by the weekend. I got plans, yo. No time for colds in my faceparts.

I don’t have anything funny, witty, poignant, or ranty to say so instead I will leave you with a video of my 2 1/2 year old informing us about the first rule of Fight Club.

I am Jack’s smirking revenge.

Avengers Assemble

Josh is planning on taking Nellie to see The Avengers on Memorial Day. On Saturday, they got to talking about it. And I got it on camera. Enjoy.

Nellie Rose In: Tangled

One of Nellie’s favorite movies is Tangled. She is in love with it. She got a Tangled Barbie doll for her birthday (which is cute and sweet and all, but have you ever had to deal with a foot of gnarly, matted Barbie doll hair? No? Well you haven’t lived, my friend.), has a few little action figures and asks to watch it about every other day.

We recently noticed that she was singing a song from Tangled, and I have tried multiple times to get it on camera to no avail. The other night, however, Nellie was in performance mode and decided to let me film her singing her little princess heart out.

To translate somewhat, Rapunzel sings “I could go running, and racing, and dancing, and chasing. And leaping, and bounding, hair flying, heart pounding. And splashing and reeling, and finally feeling that’s when my life be-giiiiiiiiiins!” and when she sings “begins”, she spins in a circle with her arms outstretched.

Nellie will run up and down our halls singing, “ah-runnin, ah-racin, a-chasin!” and it’s the cutest thing ever.

Watch out Broadway, here comes Nellie!

 

Old MacDonald Had a Geek

According to Nellie, Old MacDonald didn’t have cows, or horses, or goats on his farm. No, he had….

 

Weirdest farm ever.

Laughter is the Spark of the Soul.

Potty Humor

The other night, Nellie found something so hilarious, I had to get it on camera. Enjoy her cackles.

What was so funny? Daddy was making Nellie’s stuffed wolf – who I have named Lon Chaney –  sniff my butt and yell “shoooooo!”.

My daughter enjoys potty humor. I’m very proud.

Nellie? Meet Christmas.

Clearly, she is thrilled.

The Noise

Nellie has this noise that she makes when she wants something. It’s kind of hard to explain but it comes out most when we’re out to eat at a restaurant and the food arrives. I’ve created a video that showcases Nellie Rose and “her noise”.

Also, that bleepy spaceship noise you hear is my BBM BFF Katie messaging me. We’re probably gossiping about you.

Enjoy.
