Late to get this going today...(TTT)

Sorry I got to this late today. I've been busy cooking a million things with bananas in it after my friend dropped off a huge crate full of very ripe bananas. Took most of the day and made a huge mess of the kitchen. Lots of goodies to eat now.

Ok so the other day I was rolling out dough and Zoe asked, "what's that stuff called" while she played with the white powdery mysterious stuff and drew pictures in it with her fingers.
"it's called flour"
She responded with a tone that indicated she thought I was soooo silly and clueless and she felt a bit sorry for me, "Noooooo, it's not called flowers! It's called COOKING".
Mums these days. They know nothing, I'm tellin' ya.

Recently she has been asking me to put "Bentoring" on Netflix for her to watch. These conversations never went well and often ended with her in tears and me on the verge. She was so desperate to watch "Bentoring" but I had no idea what it was and couldn't find anything like that on netflix or by searching google. I couldn't figure out she had heard of it or seen it. No luck. Then a couple days ago while I was cooking (hmmmm I see a recurring theme here, I seem to be spending a lot of time in the kitchen these days!) I had this song from one of the land before time movies stuck in my head. "we're going to go adventuring, adventuring, adventuring". I smiled to myself while I thought on how Zoe loves those movies and I imagined her singing along....I played back in my head the way she dances in front of the screen and sings, "going to go bentoring, bentoring, bentoring". I can't believe it took me so long to figure it out!

I questioned her about it. "Is bentoring the one with little foot?"
She was pleased that I had put the pieces together. "Yes, bentoring is so much fun. People need to go bentoring every day. It's so good for you. I wike bentoring every day."

I LOVE that story :) So often Judah will come up with stuff like that and we have NO IDEA what he's saying and then he'll eventually give up and it makes me so sad that I couldn't understand what he was trying to tell me :(

Oh that "bentoring" is just darling. I do the same thing with my middle child. Sometimes he'll say something and it'll take a while to figure it out. Usually we'll figure it out, but it's so hard on him when we don't understand the first time. His big sister is a HUGE help in that. It's like they're connected at the brain because she always understands. LOL
