Even Super Villains Need Love Too

Dr Doom is dating. Bean tells me that they are going to the toy store so he can buy her kites. She says that the girl needs kites if she is going to marry Dr Doom. I'm not sure what kites have to do with it, but Bean says they are important in a marriage. I guess it is good that we own 3 kites.

A Proper Greeting Is Important

As she got out of the car at daycare this morning, Bean raised her arms, looked to the heavens, and yelled, "My brothers... My sisters... My friends... I welcome you all". With that, she ran into the building.

A proper greeting is important when setting the stage for the day.

Look Mom! It's an alligator! (pointing to the drawing she made in the condensation on the car window)

He's eating a girl. She's saying, "Aaaagggghhhhh! Aaaaagggghhhh!"

It's called "Song of the Alligator."

Can we make a movie of it? Huh, Mom???

It will be big, like Thriller.

Bean: What's that noise???

Me: That is church bells.

Bean: When I grow up and get a car, it will have church bells instead of a horn.

Me: Church bells are big. They won't fit in a car.

Bean: Yes, them will. I will have a really big car... and a cow. Him will come with me so I will always have milk... Milk and Devil Dogs.

The Babe With the Power

You remind me of the babe.

What babe?

The babe with the power.

What power?

The power of voodoo.

Who do?

You do.

Do what?

Remind me of the babe.

We practiced it all the way to preschool this morning. It's her latest obsession. Flynn from Tangled has become her Jareth doll. She says he's not as cute as the real Jareth, but he will have to do. She says that she's asking the Easter Bunny for the real Jareth and that he can sleep under her bed, as long as he promises not to turn into an owl and wake her up. I think she is going to be disappointed when all she gets for Easter is a basket of candy and a bike.

Zombie Easter bunny

A friend just posted this picture of a zombie bunny for Bean on my FB page. I debated showing her, as it is kind of a creepy pic; but of course, my curiosity got the better of me.

Me: Bean, I have a picture of a zombie bunny. Do you want to see it?

Bean: Yes. I want to see it!

Me: Are you sure??? It's pretty creepy. Even Mommy thinks it is a bit scary.

Bean: Show me, Mom! Please!!!!

(I showed her the picture. She stared at it with her mouth open, tears welling up in her eyes. "Great," I thought. "I've terrorized my 3 year old". Then she spoke...)

Bean: He's beautiful!!!! I want him, Mom! Please!!!! Can I have him? I really want him! He's so cute! Can I meet him? Huh? PLEASE!!!!

Me: He's not real, Bean. He's just a picture.

Bean: Yes, him is! He real! I want to meet him.

Now she is in bed, crying about a zombie bunny that I can't produce. Sigh. Easter is going to be interesting if she doesn't forget about the zombie Easter bunny.
