That's what you learned?? And Wordful Wednesday!
















B is obsessed with Mulan.  I think, "Finally! She is a strong woman who fights to save her family and country.  A Great female role model.  A Good story, even a little history.  Oh, and it's teaching her strength and character."  (and Mushu is soooo funny...you know you watch the movies with your kiddos too!!)

Yesterday B says, "When I grow up, I want to become a man to find my husband too."

Yea, that wasn't the lesson I was looking for...sad!
















Join in with Angie in posting a Wordful Wednesday pic.  It's fun!  You still get to talk!

Bwahaha! I didn't see that either.

I haven't seen that in a long time. I'll have to introduce it here again.

Came over from Wordful Wednesdays!
Funny - she looks like she means business!!!!

Honey Mommy said...

Yeah.

What mom doesn't want her little girl to become a man so she can find a husband! Hahaha!

Hopefully she will also figure out the "being yourself" part that goes along with the movie.

Saw your Wordful Wednesday. Your story reminds me of my daughter at 4. She loved Dorothy, Alice and Cinderella and wore shoes appropriate to her character. Gotta love those character actresses!

Susan said...

Too funny! I love the accompanying Jedi fighter shot.

Ha ha ha. I love a good Wordful Wednesday that makes me laugh! :)

What A Card said...

Hee! I never would have though of that message to search for a husband :)

Kel said...

That is one of the few movies I think that provides a "strong woman" role model...too bad they often miss that part of the movie..hehe

Maybe one day the kids will understand and then it will be that much more sweet.

Have a great day!

LOVE this picture. It looks like she's a girl who knows what she wants and is going after it that is awesome! Too funny!

Oh and BTW - Love Etsy, I'm a total addict too. Thanks for the compliment on the shoes too - I can't wait to wear them all day every day. Ha! Ha!

Amy said...

That was too funny. I love this picture too!

Ahh the things kids pick up!! My kids learned from Shrek that they never want to have a donkey because they talk too much. Yup that is the lesson of that movie :)

Jaysi said...

Too funny! The picture is worth a thousand words!

Carrie said...

I love her face!

Ooooh, I just realized I forgot to post the awards you gave me. So sorry! I was doing a post on the Crispy Kale and realized I never did the post! It will be up tonight along with the Crispy Kale recipe!

Do you tweet?? If not, you'd love it! If you are, I'm oikology101 on Twitter.

Marshmallow fondant is just like the real thing, but it actually tastes good, unlike the real thing, which always gets peeled off the cake and left behind!

When I worked a bakery/cake shop, my boss HATED doing fondant and almost refused to do it, but she didn't want to lose business, so I got a little experience using it there.

I have one that is along those same lines. Today, I had my nephew over and he and my son were playing... Sleeping Beauty. I was so proud that he got to be Sleeping Beauty. Yes, my son wants to be the princess.

Octamom said...

It is always so amazing the message I get versus what one of my kiddos think they heard!

So glad to 'see' you over at my place--thanks for the sympathies on my poor gardening talents! I'm enjoying perusing your posts and look forward to reading more about your crew!

Blessings!

But it's so funny!

Tinabean said...

So cute & so funny at the same time!

Shannon said...

Hysterical!! Isn't it funny how kids see things. They are outside the box and we are so in it. Ahhhh to be a kid again.

Jyl @ MommyGossip said...

Thanks for stopping my by blog and leaving a note. I love that your daughter loves Mulan. I saw it for the first time a month ago. Can you believe it? Her takeaway may be a little off, but fighting for hubbie isn't too bad of a goal. Family loyalty, right?

Oh my goodness....now that is hilarious!
