oh, boy. i think i might need therapy.

EVIDENCE:
Exhibit A: Ashlyn's Christmas List.
Found: On the floor in my Studio.
Reference: Items numbered 23, 24, 25 and 26.
Photobucket
Translation for those that don't read kid scratch:
23. hi-hels (as in shoes, hi-heels)
24. shoes (but NOT hi-heels, just shoes, ya know)
25. panys (underwear, non-specific)
26. fack money (aka. fake money)

anyone feeling the urge to contribute to my therapy fund, i gladly accept paypal. hahahaaaa. just kidding.

but seriously. would that not make your heart skip a beat? my not-even 7 year old is asking for hi-heels??? and immediately after, pannys (misspelled purposely), and FAKE MONEY!?? oh my word. i promise she's way more wholesome than it appears.

reality is, she loves to role-play and wear costumes and dress-up like a pretty princess. so i think i'm good. but for a minute there, i won't lie, i questioned my mothering abilities.

and just for my reference for when i go to scrapbook this list.....
1. a new doll (3 ft raggedy ann)
2. a big toy ball (like she used in OT therapy)
3. close (clothes)
4. it to be summer (gonna have a problem with this one)
5. 64 crans (crayola)
6. a cran sharpinner (to make them pointy again)
7. books
8. a shef hat (so she can be an official cook)
9. art to hight in my room (she wants art to hang on the wall)
10. 1000$ (uuuuuuuh. can this be on my list too!)
11. play-doh toys
12. blones (the latex things that float---balloons)
13. Whers Waldo book (ah, Waldo.)
14. Dora Kitchen Set
15. Kids Cook Book (HELP me out here.....any good titles you know of?)
16. earrigis (yes, her ears are pierced. since 10 months old)
17. whitbord (dry erase board, a HUGE one)
18. paint
19. piano cord
20. little tv
21. tom and jerny game (tom & jerry. don't think they make games?)
22. star for the Christmas tree
23. hi hels
24. shoes
25. panys
26. fack money

  9. I love keeping their letters to Santa, or I should say their lists for Santa. It tells you so much of what they were into at the time. I remember asking for high heels and makeup when I was little and I use neither now so it's all just temporary insanity hopefully.

  41. Ashlyn's Christmas List is priceless. It's nice to see a girl wanting "play things" I don't think she asked for anything that needed batteries or a outlet. A couple of cookbooks you might want to check out...Pillsbury(kids)and Mom and Me. Love your blog.

  46. My daughter is 6 and she talks about her boyfriends...my husband is already stressing about when she's older!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Look at all the items that came first! And really, what little girl doesn't want high heels? It is only after you have to wear a too small pair with panty-hose all day in the middle of summer that you NEVER want to see the torture devices again!

    Once I complete my mandatory AA meetings I will love playing with the Yo-Yo ball.

    ReplyDelete
  49. This list is just classic! It's great you took a pic of it - so you can see years from now what her wish list looked like. At least Ashlyn included numbers on her list...my own DD's list is 2+ pgs long, and she even included prices (yes, she shops the Target and Walmart ads, just like mama. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Ran across your blog through Stephanie Howell's and I am loving it!! I told my hubby tonight that we are going to melt crayons and give as gifts to my twin's classmates. Thanks for such a great idea.

    Your daughter's list is precious! I remember circling pictures of toys in the JC Penney catalog back in the 70's. I wish I still had them so I could see what I was into back then. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete

  57. Kids say the darndest things. My 6 year has a similar type of list with weird items on it... besides a Nintendo DS,

    she wants a bottle of hot sauce for her dad, a pumpkin, a pack of colored construction paper - not the yucky yellow stuff, anything PINK!

    Such fun scrapping memories this list will make. Thanks for the chance to win a prize.
    Happy Holidays, Debbie
