Sassy Kora

I didn't know what I was gonna blog about today. I racked my brain over it.
Not really.
Instead I thought to my self..."screw the followers...I wanna watch TV." So I did. I watched Birth Day, Adoption Stories, Bringing Home Baby, A Baby Story and anything else related to humans coming out of other humans.
AND THEN...
This sassy little vixen came home and gave me a LOVELY idea.
Her conversation.

KORA: Mom there's this boy in my class that I think is cute.
ME: Did you tell him?
KORA: Yep! But he acts weird and starts screaming when I tell him.
ME: Yea, that's normal. Boys your age act really silly.
MIAH: He only likes you because of your gumballs.
(All the neighborhood kids know about my big jar of gumballs and they come calling often to partake of it.)
KORA: THAT'S NOT TRUE! BE QUIET MIAH!
MIAH: *snicker*

ME: He might not like you now, but when he gets bigger...

KORA: NO NO NO...I already know that. I told him that.

ME: What did you tell him? (nervously)

KORA: I told him that when he gets older like marrying age he is REALLY gonna want me! (smiling and VERY...almost TOO confident)
ME: Oh brother...and what did he say?
KORA: He just kept screaming.

haha!! that's awesome! you're such a cool mom. I hope I'm as cool as you when my daughter gets to talking age....and, gumballs? what a great idea! I thought that was only at your parent's house? (didn't you blog about that once while there?)

Katie said...

Hey I'm sure you have already gotten someone else but there is no way I'm gonna be able to keep Penny tomorrow...wisdom tooth surgery sucks! I look ridiculous and I feel worse. But sometime soon! Sorry :(

Miah's right, he wants her gum balls. Keep after him Kora! Love Paw Paw

Jason said...

If this is any indication, you are sooo lucky that baby #5 is another boy!

Lindsay said...

i'm pretty sure enos just wanted my gumballs...and likewise.. HAH.. ew. :) way to go kora.... OWN your hotness. he'll come crawling back...someday.

Dana said...

haha this is made my day.

Queen Mama said...

ROFL! She is super hilarious! Too cute. Kids just crack me up with what they say! Yes, I love Miah's comment.. right on! Ha!

My oldest told me she had a "dilemma" the other day. Which I didn't think she knew what that was. Apparently, her two closest friends don't like each other and get jealous when she talks to one or the other.. it was cute hearing her say "dilemma"

How's Jakob liking his new school?

Bonnie said...

You know, when I was first reading this I thought "gum balls" was Miah's word for "cha-chas.' I giggled to myself.

Your kids have the cutest personalities!

Boys are ONLY after your gumballs...even when your big!

i love amy's comment the best

Kim said...

I don't think you have to worry about that girl having low self esteem! I love her attitude.

Valinda said...

Ahh the confidence of youth! Is liking someone for their gumballs the same as liking someone for their brownies?

The Nugen's said...

That is so funny!!! She's very smart that Kora!

dena said...

She always has been, but she remains to be my favorite little girl.

Debbie said...

what a spunky little girl.
Where on earth did you get such a fancy jar and all those gumballs?

tell kora to be careful of boys that only like girls for their mother's gumballs.

David and Teresa said...

Tell my Koko that he will someday want her for more than her gumballs. She is very sweet and can make good cookies and is good with a mixer. As for the screaming, maybe he should take Anger Management between now and the time gets to that age of getting married. LOL! Never a dull moment with Koko. Maybe she should hit him in the head with a golf club like she did Jake and that would stop the screaming....LOL! Miah..I like your comments also. Being a boy, yes, there is usually one thing on their mind and that in this case (thank goodness) is GUMBALLS!
Love you Mawmaw and Mutha to some

Riece said...

That is too freaking funny! Kora is a girl who knows her mind! HA!

Dana said...

Thumbs up for Kora being sure of herself.. and thumbs up for her little brother keepin it real..:-)

Sara said...

oh wow she is just too much...love it!!! Way to go Miah and put it out there...lol

kelly manz said...

OMG hilarious!! Kora is adorable! and way too wise for her age! i can't believe we have 2 things in common (1 is stalking Gia)- I totally watched birth day, bringing home baby, etc all day long when i was prego (and the 8 mos of trying). i figured my birth would be worse but it wasn't....I ROCK!

Wow, you sure did get alot of comments to this post!

Koko is awesome! I'm really not sure where she got all her greatness from?!?! Oh thats right, she has a pretty awesome MUTHA!

You still need to get A to buy you the big gumball machine for your front door so you can start making the neighborhood kids pay 25cents for them. You could totally make bank with that! That could be your mad money!
