Julia Styles

16 February 2015


shirt - Kidizen
shoes - c/o Minnetonka
haircut - c/o Mom

Slyly opens Netflix Kids on my laptop and then makes a big production of looking surprised at what she sees the screen:
Julia: oh!
Grace:
Julia: hmm!
Grace: what?!
Julia: wow!
Grace:
Julia: wonder what this is?!
Grace:

Theo and Phoebe start crying during their naps while Julia and I are hanging out and I pretend not to hear for a minute or three ...
Julia: sigh
Grace:
Julia: sigh
Grace:
Julia: eye roll
Grace:
Julia: eye roll
Grace:
Julia: SIGH
Julia: now mom's quiet time is more like mom's CRYING TIME.

One night when Julia claimed she couldn't sleep I told her to think about her birthday wish list until she was able to drift off. I went to bed and woke up a full hour later to her standing thisclose to my face ...
Grace:
Julia: a pig
Grace: what?
Julia: I decided I want a pet pig for my birthday


After I got an unfortunate email about someone in a different class at her school having lice ...
Grace: Julia, please come here so I can look at your hair
Julia: oh! don't worry! my teachers already checked my hair and they didn't find ANY mice.

While the kids were enjoying the fruits of my bi-monthly baking labor ...
Julia: can I please have another cookie? I accidentally ate my first one.

Overheard while Julia and Sebastian were "banging out" in the basement ...
Julia: Well, Bash.
Bash: What?
Julia: You just need to know that girls grow babies in their tummies and boys grow poop in theirs.
Bash: oh.

Recently ...
Julia: can we go to the store today to buy some pears?
Grace: no, Bash is still sick, I'm sorry
Julia: well, I have a great idea
Grace:
Julia: he can just frow up in his hands
Grace:
Julia: ... and then put it in his pockets and no one will see

 
While visiting Simon at work one night ...
Julia: So, where's your friend Neil?
Simon: I think he's busy doing a delivery
Julia: oh, Dad! he's not a mailman!!!

After she caught me watching a little nap time Bachelor and surmised that there were some very sad girls because of the fact that they did not get roses ...
Julia: well ...
Grace: what is it?
Julia: do you think we should just tell them you can buy flowers like that at Costco?

  2. "You just need to know that girls grow babies in their tummies and boys grow poop in theirs."
    This is my favorite.

  3. But for real, a baby pig isn't too much to ask for. :)

  4. I get to excited when you post, especially these ones. This girl cracks me up, can we be friends? I mean she sounds cooler than a lot of 25 year olds I know! Go Julia!

  5. She is the best. Boys do grow poop in their bellies.

  7. The last two are so cute!! She's a problem solver. :) And it is bad that I am jealous of a 4 year old's hair? I feel like her hair is thicker than mine ALREADY.

  8. I'm totally stealing her "have another cookie because I accidentally ate my first one" line!
    She is one smart cookie!

  9. I don't even... omg. I thought the one about the pig for her birthday couldn't be topped, but... the puke in his hands and then put it in his pockets wins. wow. that wins everything.

  15. Haha! Julia should start giving out dating advice!

  16. "do you think we should just tell them you can buy flowers like that at Costco?" seriously laughing out loud! She is so funny!!

  17. "You just need to know that girls grow babies in their tummies and boys grow poop in theirs." -- Your kids say the most hilarious things!

  18. You definitely should get a pig. And I applaud Bash on the equanimity with which he accepted that he would be growing poop in his belly forevermore.

    I'm addicted to Bachelor and it's your fault--you linked to Ashley Jonesy once, and her posts were so hysterical I started watching the show again and now I can't stop. My boyfriend got addicted too. So, thanks a lot! Caitlin's abundance of riches grows unchecked--not only did she get a rose on the show, but she also went to Costco earlier in the season and presumably already knows Julia's source for floral. (Also, I'm Team Becca--Caitlin is pretty entertaining, but she doesn't strike me as someone who could handle Arlington, IA. She'd be a good Bachelorette though!)

  19. Please high five Julia for me for the flowers at Costco remark! PS we're having an ice storm and the satellite keeps messing up. During the Bachelor. Which I've never cared about ever before this season. I hold you responsible and think the least you could do is text me with updates. Except I can't remember where I put my phone.

  20. That last one is my favorite thing I've ever read! haha!!!

  21. Oh, I hope my son is this funny a at 4!

  22. This is a SOLID Julia Styles. Lessons I learned: I can always just buy myself flowers at Costco and Mike will only ever brew poo in his belly. Got it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hahahahaha...I love hearing kids talk. Even other people's kids. They are usually pretty hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Snort laughed my nursing baby awake. Oh that Julia!

    ReplyDelete
  25. my goodness. ever the realist. at least she knows where to get her flowers if she ever needs them.
    I love her little spice on life.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Julia is so precious! I always look forward to these posts from you!

  27. She is so hilarious. :) These are my favorites!

  28. Hysterical! As always. :) I just love her little bob.

  29. Ok, so I tried to do the lob on my daughter last night after a frustrating 20 minutes trying to unmat her hair ( she's weird curly underneath and straight on top). It DID NOT turn out as well as your, resulting in my hus bad pulling a couple faces that nearly got him put out the door.

  30. Laughing as I read this, though now I'm a bit sad to realize that the sweet little shirt with adorable birds and a double Peter Pan collar is better than anything in my own closet ;)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Her hair looks so cute!! She's growing up so fast - not a baby anymore!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Always love these posts! And the last one...too cute!

    ReplyDelete
  33. When I read posts like this, it makes me wish there was blogging when my boys were little (back in the Stone Age). It's so wonderful that you'll have all of these memories stored forever. It will be so much fun to read through posts like this, years from now. That little girl is such a hoot--and so adorable, too.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Bahaha I think that Julie should totally tell those sad girls about all the available roses at Costco ... smart girl!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. "A pig." LOL!! These always make me laugh. And the bird shirt is beautiful! I want one in my size :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Pure gold! That Julia is pure gold.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Perhaps she's going to grow up and expect more from her reality TV viewing! Sigh. Eye roll. xx

    ReplyDelete
  38. OMG the last one about Costco I really did Laugh Out Loud! She is so perfect!!

    ReplyDelete
