Nasty Girl....

Harrison is all about the Incredibles right now because he wants to be Dash (little boy from the movie who runs fast) for Halloween.

All morning he keeps calling Dash's mom, Helen who is a superhero who stretches in all kinds of directions "nasty girl". I keep telling him to stop but he keeps insisting that they call her that on the movie.

Confused, I'm wondering, do they really call her "nasty girl"? Why haven't I caught that, I don't like that, I don't want him saying that! I explain to him why it's not nice to call someone "nasty" etc, etc...

He then starts to give me a replay of when Incredi-boy says to Mr. Incredible, "YOU MARRIED NASTY GIRL!!!" OH, HARRISON! He didn't say "nasty girl", he said "Elasti-girl"! I could hardly contain my laughter.

Whooooo! So, no more "nasty girl". He's got it now, it's "Elasti-girl"! :)

I can't believe Vonda beat me either!!!! Now you KNOW what kind of week it's been! :) Good thing you got Harrison straightened out before he taught my boys her name was Nasty girl. We are still working on the "Sih-Chick" instead of "Chick Hicks". Remember how long it took me to figure that one out?

Beth,

I'm breathing a sigh of relief with you too and a chuckle. :)

Wow! I sure am glad you figured that one out. It has always amazed me the way a child can hear something so differently than the way it was intended to be! Keep your eyes and ears open...there is no telling what you will hear thru these next few years. Ha!
Love, Mom

Ok, I'm laughing so hard - that is a GOOD one! Gillian still calls Sesame Street and Sesame Chicken "Stephanie" Street and "Stephanie" Chicken. I never corrected her because it's so cute!

Hilarious! Anderson has an Incredibles book that he loves to read- he says that he is Dash, and I'm Elastigirl. Better than Nastygirl!!!!

That's so funny! Kids say the darndest things don't they? The scary thing is, what do they say to their friends and teachers when we're not around? Could you imagine being at a parent teacher conference and having to talk about Nasty Girl!

Isn't it funny that kids hear things so differently than they are said.....We better be careful what we say around Harrison.....

I have not seen this Incredibles in it's entirety yet....Would Mimi think she is Nasty Girl! Ha.

Just kidding...just remembering about my comment once about a movie you and Anthony had seen....

Love,
Mimi and Papa
