Recent Moments with Ramona

The other day, from Ramona:

"Mommy, as I'm looking at that powdery snow on our front porch, it makes me think of Alton Brown's powdered sugar. And when I think of Alton Brown's powdered sugar, it makes me want to watch 'Let Them Eat Foam.'"

Me: "Okay, that's fine. You can watch that."

Ramona: "No -- here's my crisis! I also want to read Because of Winn-Dixie!"

It's torture to be an eight-year-old.


If you read my blog on a feed reader, and don't follow me on Twitter or Facebook, here are some of the latest Ramona Moments (which seem to always end up as Tweets these days):

She's the Clean Queen: Ramona played restaurant. Taped to the bathroom mirror I found this note: "All Employees MUST WASH THEIR HANDS."

Ramona, reading "The Enormous Egg": "I hate to not suspend my disbelief, Mommy, but this book is wrong. A hen can NOT lay a dinosaur egg."
2 Feb

Cabin fever, anyone? Ramona was moping. "What's the matter?" I asked. "The usual," she said. "Winter Upset-ment."

Was going to catch up on Tweets but Ramona just summoned me: "Accio Mommy!"

Sooo, Springsteen's alive, then? He's somewhere singing perky commercial jingles?

Think how wealthy you would be if you just bottled and sold this child!!

Either perky commercial jingles or whipping his hair back and forth with Neil Young. Depends on his mood, I suppose. :)

And, bottling her -- yes! But she might pop the top off.
