Conversations with Julia

22 April 2013

"I just want to be a baby wike Fee-oh ...."


As you wish.

Trying to take a picture (like never) ...
Grace: can you smile?
Julia: let me see ...
Grace: okay?
Julia: let me just tickle myself for a wittle bit

In the middle of the night she was having the mother of all coughing fits ...
Grace: what's going on, Julia?
Julia: I just have the chokes.

Watching the neighbor girl in her driveway from our post on the deck
Julia: HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
Neighbor:
Julia: What's going on down dare?!
Neighbor:
Julia: You wook so cute!!
Neighbor:

Hugging my bare and unshaven legs ...
Julia: ouch!!
Grace: what?
Julia: your legs are sharp!
Grace:
Julia: Dare sharp wike knives!!

Taylor Swift's I Knew You Were Trouble comes on Pandora ..
Julia: oh!! Dis is my SONG.

A wordless slow violiny jam comes on Pandora ...
Julia: oh, I not wike this one. Dis is Bash's song.

Cut (hardly!) her gums from falling in the basement ...
Julia: (between sobs) I just need a kiss
Grace: okay (kisses cheek)
Julia: no! A kiss on my tongue!!
Grace: maybe later

Heard a crash come from the basement ...
Grace: Julia, are you being bad?
Julia: Yes, I are!!

In the car when a song comes on ...
Julia: Who sings this?
Grace: umm I think maybe Gwen Stefani
Julia: No, I think it's Pink

Watching me change Sebastian's bomb ...
Julia: um, I think he ate some chocwate cake

Watching me change into run/walking gear
Julia: Is that your belly button?
Grace: Yep
Julia: And those are your other belly buttons??
Grace: go find something else to do please

Taking another (rare) picture ...
Grace: Can you smile, please?



Julia: I are smiling.
Grace: Okay.

  9. The best. Oh my goodness, you have a good one. "Let me just tickle myself for a bit," is probably going to become a saying around here.

  10. My kids also request kisses when they bite their tongue, and I try ~ mostly.

    ReplyDelete
  11. The Tay-Swift one is my favorite! Followed VERY closely by the legs and the belly button. I don't care how bad my day has been - conversations with Julia make it awwwww better!

    ReplyDelete

  13. haaaaaaaaaaa! i'm pretty sure you should start a comic strip with these. you'd make MILLIONS! :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Just to add on - we are a giant radio-in-the-car listening family. You haven't heard funny until you see a 3 and 5 year old singing Lady Gaga and Fat Bottom Girls by Queen!

  15. Love! Cecilia bumped her mouth and begged me to kiss her teeth. But I turned her down when, naked, she fell down and asked me to kiss her "cwotch." NO MA'AM!

  17. So I lost a little of my adoration for Little J after the Taylor Swift comment buuuttttt she redeemed herself by the end just by being so stinking adorable. But seriously...could you work on the Taylor Swift thing, please? Aren't there enough little girls succumbing to her very shallow and talentless charms?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh, how I love it... This one was my favorite CWJ yet! So many jewels...

    ReplyDelete
  19. oh what a character! I love reading your blogs about the funny things that your kids do. thanks for sharing! (:

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh how I needed Julia today...to laugh and smile for a bit. Thank you so much. I wish someone would call out to me telling me how cute I was...I would talk back...I promise! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I am laughing — Julia always knows how to brighten a day! I love the Taylor Swift one. You've got a blog star on your hands!

    ReplyDelete
  27. "You wook so cute". Ha ha ha! She is just a gem.

    ReplyDelete
  28. She is cracking me up! Dis my song! Love that!

    ReplyDelete
  29. oh man, lady j never fails to make me laugh. but you should teach her proper english - she should say "this is my JAM," not song. silly, j.

    ReplyDelete
  30. A) that picture of three swaddled bebes is adorable and
    B) I am in tears laughing at this post. Julia is my hero.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I had the Monday Cranks..this just made me laugh! And then laugh some more! I think my son and your daughter could have quite the conversation ha! Thanks for sharing :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. BTW, your new blog layout looks SO great!

    ReplyDelete
  33. oh also...while I'm writing you a book...sentence by sentence it seems...for your giveaways, it always starts with facebook. Ummmm I don't have facebook (did you know such a person exists?!) is there anyway to still participate in the giveaways?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No fb for me either! Woot!

      Delete
    2. I'm so sorry! The person/company sponsoring the giveaway decides on the mandatory entry (that unlocks the rest) and a lot of times it's via the Facebook. I know a lot of people have Twitter accounts solely for giveaways .. I'm guessing it'd be dumb to have an account just to enter giveaways? I'm full of bad ideas! But ... I am sorry Abby!

      Delete
    3. Grace, you made me laugh..ok you always do that (good thing, btw) No don't be sorry! (Ummm I am sooo that person who lives under a Technological Rock, I don't have twitter either and (sheepishly admitting) I don't quite understand how to go about it) But I am not necessarily above your "bad idea" ha! Thanks! :)

  34. Greetings! Very useful advice within this article!

    It is the little changes that make the most significant changes.

  35. Each one was funnier than the last. Awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  36. This made me not only crack the sole smile of all the day long, but cackle embarassingly in a room all by myself.

    ReplyDelete
  37. That picture of Julia smiling made me laugh out loud! She's a goose!! Soooo good!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I LOVE her. If I was your next-door neighbor, you'd probably have to get a restraining order. No joke.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh, I died. I died of awesomeness, just now. Thanks, baby J!

    ReplyDelete
  40. hahaha Ellen pitched the fit of all fits the other day after I told her to stop tweaking my nipples. "I need dose nipples!!"

    ReplyDelete
  41. Okay, so I have been on a mission since mid-yesterday to ratchet down my anxiety level from its three-year-constant of an 11 out of 10 to, well, anything lower. So I took a bath and drank some wine and went to yoga and did some sewing. So I was at like a 7.5 and very proud of myself. And then you come along and do a Julia today, and I laughed so much I am now totally a 4. Not quite as chill as my neighbor who reclines on her front lawn in front of the neighborhood as she waits for the kids to get off the bus, but that's probably a good thing...

    I are smiling, too, little J. I are smiling, too.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Too funny. Your neighbor does not know the hilarity she's missing!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I knew you were trouble is my song too! J's my girl

    ReplyDelete
  44. The main question is does she prefer the studio remix or the one with the goats?

    Too funny, girl!

    ReplyDelete
  45. haha! laughing out loud!! too great, she is the cutest!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Haha, too cute! "I ARE...smiling" love love love. She and E would be good buds.

    ReplyDelete
  47. These Julia conversations posts are my favorite. The one about your legs reminds me of something my son said this past week when I showed him my very [VERY!!!] neglected and dry feet: "Mommy, you need a band-aid. You need two band-aids. You need a lot of band-aids!"

    ReplyDelete
  48. So I think "Conversations with Julia officially out-funnies "Simon Says" "(Sorry Simon!)

  50. Thank you for posting these. I am a grandma, and I cannot get enough of the humor of kiddos. I always told my son, now the father of 2 under 2 to remember that there were only two reasons to have children: Slave labor and comedy breaks. You will be so glad you wrote these down.... And you made a semi-old lady laugh out loud today.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Once again Julia and Grace make my day! When I got the notification on my phone that this posted I stopped what I was doing then and there and laughed out loud. I was in the wine aisle at the grocery store. I adore this girl!

    ReplyDelete
  52. How rude that the neighbor didn't respond to such cuteness! And Dis is my SONG is hilarious. These made me laugh so hard!

    1. oh and I die looking at that first pic...Bash and J are totally cramping Theo's style! He is so unimpressed.

  57. I have a page on my blog called Toddler Conversations. When I'm having a bad day (or when my kids are all grown up--SOB), reading them makes my heart happy. When they lose their adorable speech impediments, I'll die a little inside.

  58. OH. EM. GEE. I wove Julia! AND your conversations with her, especially the awkward Grace pause when she says something you'd rather not respond to! Thanks for the biggest laughs of the day! :)

  59. I just read this out loud to Michael and we both died. Julia reminds us of Piper at that age. They can never, ever meet.

    ReplyDelete
  60. i always laugh out loud at these (which is a feat, might i add)--i love the way you describe your interactions with her. can't wait for the next edition!

    ReplyDelete
  61. These posts are always my favourites -- they make me laugh big time!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Well, I love all of this but I must say... if Julia told me that I wook so cute, I think I would respond with more than " ". JUST SAYIN'!

    P.S. Julia - YOU wook so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Your conversations with Julia and Simon Says posts are my favorite.

    UMMMM OKAY I LOVE YOUR WRITING TOO I HOPE YOU'RE NOT OFFENDED.
