I told myself that I would be better at writing down funny things that Ivy does/says. I have been keeping little notes in my phone as they happen, so here are some recents.

Over the summer Ivy and I were out to cheesecake factory for a friends b-day. So me and the girls are chattin away when I get this tap on my shoulder from behind. So I turn around and this women says:

" Um excuse me... your daughter wont stop putting her fork in my hair."
Me: (trying really hard not to laugh) "Oh my gosh, I am SO sorry" I then turn to ivy and say "Ivy! We do NOT put our forks in people's hair.
Ivy's response " Its like ariel."

hahahaha good one ivy. The worse part was that I totally forgot to tell the lady that the fork was clean! woops:) Lets just say we laughed really really hard.

So Ivy and I are walking around target in the birthday isle looking for a card for a friend when she shouts..

Ivy: "um mom you didn't even tell me happy birthday"
Me: looking over my shoulder to see a women standing by us waiting to hear why i haven't told my daughter happy birthday.. "Well Ivy, that's because its not your birthday silly."
Ivy: Ug! Okay... that's fine.
(way to make me look like a bad mom ivy!)

Same day at target:

Me: "Ivy, thank you soooo much for being such a good girl at the store."
Ivy: "Oh mom it was nofin."

Now everytime I praise her for being so good, she comes back with the same phrase "oh mom, it was nofin."

Ivy: "Hey mom, can you please text my friends to see if they can play with me???"
Me: What the!? Kids these days...

We went to NYC during the summer, and Ivy had a lot of funny things to say about the city...

You know how your walking down the street and there are hotdog stands blowin their smoke in your face everywhere you go..well Ivy had this to say about them.

Ivy: "Those guys need to seriously (pronounced as uriously by ivy) stop making hot dogs, it is WAY too hot outside!" i totally agreed with her.

The whole time we were in NYC Ivy was determined to find Giselle from the movie enchanted. So we are walking and she see's a billboard that had a girl with red hair in pink silk somethin and this is what Ivy had to say about it..

Ivy:" Oh my goodness mom! Look at Giselle! She looks beautiful in her pink g's!" (if you know what she really said here than great:)Yes, the obsession still continues. It was hilarious.

The other day Ivy and I were fighting over my cup of Ice. I really really really do not like when she takes my cup away or puts her little toddler hands in for a handful. I of course offer her a little cup that could be her very own, but no.. she insists on taking mine. So anyway, she totally knocked my cup over ( it was my last batch of sonic ice so you can imagine how unhappy I was) and I told her in a stern voice "see ivy, that is why I didn't want you to hold it, now you will need to pick up all of the ice and put it back into the cup.

And this is the response I get...

Ivy" Oh mom, you are a way to serious mom!"

I have no idea where she got that one, but she had me laughing pretty hard. Seriously Ivy,one day you will find that your mom does not know how to be serious. I don't have one serious bone in my body. Its a problem... You just wait.
