The Winky Phone and A Message from the Other Side


This is totally hilarious! I want to share with you a conversation I had with Gracie tonight while getting her to go to sleep. She started with her typical "I don't want to go to sleep" routine. And I, of course, told her that we WERE going to sleep regardless of that fact. No matter what I say, it just isn't enough for her, and she usually complains and talks for a while about anything and everything she can think of. Here is the conversation...
Gracie: "You don't let me do nothin' I want to do!"
Me: "Yes, I do. But we are going to sleep now."
Gracie: "Your parents told me."
Me (laughing and Huh??? What???): "What did my parents tell you?" (Both of my parents are deceased.)
Gracie: "They told me that I could do whatever I wanted to do."
Me (laughing very hard): "They did, did they?"
Gracie: "Yes!"
Me: "Where did you come up with this, Gracie?"
Gracie: "Here. Talk on the Winky phone." (And Gracie puts her stuffed Winky up to my ear.)
Me: "What do I say?"
Gracie: "Say "Hi. This is Mommy."
Me: "Hi. This is Mommy."
Gracie: "Talk Mommy! Talk to them."
Me: "Talk to who, Gracie?"
Gracie: "Tell your parents that I can do whatever I want to do."
Oh My Goodness!!! She is a total MESS!!! M-E-S-S!!!!
