SHE SAID WHAT???

Since I will be publishing this blog in a book format to use as a little record of events for our family, I'm going to start sharing some of the "Jayda-isims" or funny things she says so I can remind myself later was a crackup this kid is!

The other day I took Jayda to Subway for some lunch. I was holding her in my arms as she was looking at what she wanted on her sandwich. When the lady picked up her bread to make the little turkey sandwich for Jayda she asked what we wanted on it. Here's how the conversation went down:


Subway Lady: "What would you like with your Turkey?"

Jayda: "a little not-spicy mustard, a little mayonnaise, and some cheese."

Subway Lady: "okay." The lady then puts the stuff on her sandwich and Jayda notices the cheese is white. Jayda's eyes get all huge and...

Jayda: "no white cheese, orange cheese...DUH!"

Cori: ---no comment at the time, but insert mortified face here!


She said "duh" to someone? My two year old acted as if someone else was dumb??? I was truly mortified. Yes, she is a mini version of her Father who teaches her these gems. Yes, he says it funny and cute and we laugh. Yes, looking back it was flippin hilarious that Jayda said it...but it did require a sit down talk about how we don't speak that way to anyone and that some people find it rude and hurtful. Jayda said "okay mom, but duh-who likes white cheese?" What am I going to do with this girl?


Then yesterday I asked Jayda what she wanted for Christmas. I've asked her a few times in the past and I always get the same answer "5 books and some princess dolls." Just to be sure I had everything she wanted, I asked again. This time she sat very quietly and really thought about it. Then, with her sweet blue eyes, she looked up at me and said very seriously and very honestly "I want a little black boy." She said what??? What the heck did that mean and where did she get that from?? I sat there a bit stunned not knowing where to take this conversation and so I said "What do you mean you want a little black boy?" and she said "I want the black boy from Hairspray!" One of Jayda's favorite movie in the entire world is Hairspray. She loves the character that plays Seaweed who is a young black man. She wants him for Christmas so she can sing and dance with him all day long! (I hope no one is offended by this little story. She meant it sweetly and innocently and she just wanted to sing and dance with her favorite friend!) Needless to say she will not be getting that request!

It was so god to hear from you. Congratulations on your beautiful family with one o the way! I am for sure going to add you to my blog. It is so fun reading about people and getting to catch up. I need to update mine, but life is pretty busy with a baby and I went back to work this week... yes, 5 days of teaching and two more weeks off. Couldn't have planned it better (oh that's right, I didn't). Looking forward to checking in on you. When you are in CA again, you should call my parents and stop by their house. We all would love to see you guys.

lol! oh! little Jada! At first I thought she wanted a little black baby doll (like mommy is having a little baby)...but then my second thought were all of these years of history we've had and the problems a coment like that would bring if she said it in a couple of years in school! lol! wow! this is just too funny! message to Cory! She wanted the one from the movie duh! lol!
