25 Random Things About Me



By Sophie, My 4 Year-Old Neighbor




1. My name's Sophie!

2. I'm 4 years-old! (Holds up three fingers and a thumb.)

3. I live next door to you!

4. That's my house right there! See it see it see it??? THAT'S MY HOUSE!!! Did you know that? Hello, house!

5. My favorite color's pink!

6. Waitwaitwait! I just changed my mind! It's blue! My favorite color's blue! I LOOOOVVVEEEE BLUUUUUEEE SOOOO MUCH I COULD DIE!!!

7. Wait, can you erase that? I like pink now.

8. I really, really, really, really, really love kittens! KITTENS! KITTENS! KITTENNNNSSS!!!

9. And cats!

10. I do NOT like worms. I can't stand worms. Yuck-o! One time, one time, when I was 2, I saw a worm and you know what? You know what? I totally puked up my grilled cheese! It was SOOO GROSS!

11. (Long pause while she tries to kiss a cloud.)

12. How many answers is that? Twelveteen? Fourteen? Eleventy thousand million?

13. I used to be a baby and all I did all day long was go "Wah wah wah!" Isn't that funny? Wah! (Goes into two-minute long giggle fit over her own joke.)

14. Got any cookies around here?

15. (Another long pause while she attempts to lick her right elbow.)

16. Guess what? I have princess pajamas! I LOOOVEEE princesses! And pajamas! I wish I could wear my pajamas ALL DAY LONG, don't you?

17. I really,really, really want to watch Hannah Montana, but my mommy says she's not ready for me to start talking like a teenager yet. What's THAT aposed to mean?

18. My favorite food is...is...anything red!

19.
Guess what? My mommy loves to shop! She shops A LOT! Like EVERY DAY!

20-24. Uh-oh. I gotta go potty! (Frantic hopping up and down followed by a mad dash to the bathroom, then a few minutes of confusion while she tries to zip up her pants with her toes because apparently she's now pretending to be an orangutan.)

25. (sigh) Can I go now? After I have a cookie? Pleasepleaseplease?? It won't spoil my dinner, I PROMISE!

Ahhh... she's very wise. And so is her mother to disallow Hannah Montana!

hokgardner said...

That sounds frighteningly like conversations I have around here on a regular basis with my girls and their friends.

And I was really, really hoping you were going to do 25 things about you!

K said...

So I have these same conversations all day long - only mine's a boy who he would probably like worms.

Very cute. And it's good to know my kid isn't the only one.

Sharon said...

Kids! Oh the fodder they provide. Running after me asking questions all day long. Mummy, why is the sky blue? Mummy, why does that license plate have only numbers? Mummy, why are those ear plugs sticking out of your ears? Mummy, why is "who can stay quiet the longest" your favorite game?

Cheryl Prater said...

Sophie: Which of the JoBros are you gonna marry? Yes, you have to pick just one.

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

Awe. Sum.
That is all.

Erica said...

Are you sure you weren't talking to my spastic redneck 46 year old husband? Oh wait he likes worms, nevermind!

pat said...

she has the cookie part right!!

Marinka said...

This is the best 25 things about me list that I've ever read. Everyone else should just delete theirs right now because they suck in comparison. Really, I'll wait.

Butterflyfish said...

This is awesome

CSY said...

That was VERY cute! Thank you for the insights on a 4 yr old girl...priceless!

Coffee with Cathy said...

Oh my gosh. That was priceless! Thanks for getting my Tuesday started with some belly-busting laughter -- and I agree with Marinka that this was the best 25 Random Things list ever in the history of 25 Random Things lists. Ever.

Stefanie said...

This is so ridiculous Wendi, I mean, come ON. My daughter would never pause to kiss a cloud. She'd just keep talking. Don't you know four-year-olds at all?

bernthis said...

I know 20 year old valley girls who talk exactly like that and pulled that orangutan(sp?) move on many drunk occasions.

coffeypot said...

I wish I could find a 21 year old like her. Man would I have some toys for her to play with.

Lisa Lucas said...

I think I had the same conversation with Emma over the weekend :)

misshoneybee519 said...

Sophie is definitely onto something with the pajamas.

Amy@Bitchin'WivesClub said...

Oh thank goodness I've got boys. Wait. The list would pretty much the same. Minus the princesses, pink and Hannah Montana. :) She sounds like a pistol.

Beth said...

She sounds like a kid from my school. I love the randomness of kids! It makes it rather funny when I have to discipline a young child. They give me that look of not really getting it and then make some sort of announcement. My favorite announcement was the time the kid told me his dad really LOVED mountain oysters.

peajaye said...

not to diminish marinka's insightful comment about this being the "best 25 things about me" list ever (i happen to agree) - but could marinka simply be advancing her own, narrow, cat agenda? and remember, this is after she tried to banish you from her blog because of your extremely helpful "catscratch fever" suggestion. i'm just saying...

*Akilah Sakai* said...

Aw, that was really cute. Had that been my son, each answer would be 2-3 paragraphs. He does not stop! And all the while his eyes are as wide as saucers. Hmm...I think he drinks Red Bull during "Center Time" instead of playing with building blocks or something.

the mama bird diaries said...

The kiss the cloud line is the BEST.

I think my 4 year-old daughter lives next door to you.

Lisa--aka The Gardenweasel said...

Have you considered have an "Ask Wendi" feature?

rightonmom said...

Sophies a ham 1/2!! My daughter lists her favorite colors as: pinkish/purpleish, whitish/tannish etc. Don'y know why but they're all -ishes!

I bet you had a ball with this!

Ann's Rants said...

Wow, her blog post is funnier and more insightful than any of mine.

Scrapsister said...

Hehe @ 'aposed' :)
My four year old is currently obsessed with 'assgroppers'. That's grasshoppers to some.
Try explaining that one at school :O

Cassie said...

And that all happened in a period of about 10 seconds, right?

Belle said...

I have princess pj's too!

MadMad said...

Ahhhhh, I LOVE four! Almost as much as pink! No, blue. No, pink. Waitwaitwait - I don't remember. Can I have another chance?

Deb said...

I was going to say I've done one of those pee pee dance things too. But, it is far less cute since I'm old.

Momma B said...

Gotta love Sophie!

Heather said...

Pretty much that is my 4 year old except her color is purple, no wait its pink, no, no its purple.
