Welcome to Wordful Wednesday……for more information, see my right side bar:

Today it’s Mama Kat from Mama’s Losin It being Wordful, and I couldn’t be happier.Β  I mean, she is the Writer’s Workshop Maven, so she always has interesting things to say.Β  In fact, she keeps me laughing on a regular basis.Β  And not just on her blog.Β  I’m a lucky duck to have her as a good friend!

Mama's Losin' It

Hide and Seek

Laina’s had an imaginary purple house for about a year now. It’s filled with dogs and she often talks about all of the things she can do there that I won’t let her do here. Her purple house statements are sporadic and fleeting, but I’ve been writing them down for my own entertainment purposes:

“At my purple house I went for a walk with Sparkle and Lily and I saw a monster and he be nice to me. I have Sparkle and Lily, I do…on The Diamond Castle they’re the same, they are. They’re at my purple house.”

“I can’t use your car cause I’m still a kid. I wanna drive to my purple house cause I wanna pick up Sparkles and Lily and I will come back. I want my own house and my own car.”

“Jake’s mom has a map to my purple house and he’s gonna sneak and get one of my dogs. I better hurry and get Sparkle and Lily.”

“Efferyfing in my purple house is broking. Because all da dogs are broking efferyfing.”

“It hab a lotta dogs and all my friends can hab one…I mean…I don’t hab a lot of friends, I only hab dogs.”

“I put milk, juice, an water in a cup at my purple house an give it to my dogs. Sparkles and Lily really like it.”

*A little comment love might help you get one of my favorite purses, some of my favorite reads, a favorite bracelet or a gift card! See here for details.

    How cute is that? Isn’t it wonderful to get these glimpses into your child’s imagination? Sounds like she has a very vivid one, which is a good thing indeed! πŸ™‚

    isn’t it so fun when your child has a vivid imagination? my first never created any imaginary friends or places. my youngest is constantly making up activities and friends.

    When I was little I always said I would grow up and live in a pink house…then I realized what I was saying…I could have so lived in a purple house!

    What a wonderful idea to write these down! No house here but many adventures with the imaginary friends! And mine is obsessed with driving, I have lost track of the times she asks when she can drive my car!

    I like the part where she says she can’t drive yet, being just a kid.

    [that darkness behind her….makes it look like her hair is touching the ground…being THAT long.]

    Welcome Mama Kat! I love your Writer’s Workshops!

    Your WW post is precious! I love when children have a vivid imagination. It’s a sign of brilliance. And she is just beautiful, too. Beautiful and brilliant, just like her mama! πŸ™‚

    I am working on my hubby- I want him to build a dugout/treehouse/clubhouse thing for the kids. They have great imaginations too and I think that it would foster this wonderful time in their childhood. Thanks for the great guest post!

    She would get along FAMOUSLY with the girls in my house!!

    Efferyfing at my house is broking too. It’s not the dogs though. It’s my stinkin’ kids!!

    How sweet! When I was about her age I had an imaginary friend and once I made my mom late to work because I made her turn around and go home because we had left the house without her.

    Her purple house sounds the place to be. I just love the imagination kids have. Don’t you wish we had a purple house to dream away in? πŸ™‚

    I must remember this fun meme each week. I think it’s only the 2nd time I’ve participated. Thanks for hosting it.

    And I love stories that kids tell ~ it’s amazing what goes on in their developing minds.

    That’s so funny! My daughter used to talk about how she was married to Eric (from Little Mermaid) and they had 3 kids and he worked at the school and he would call her sometimes to bring the kids over to eat lunch with him, etc. They can be so creative!

    Now, I need a favor from YOU. Would you help me get a new meme started? On Thursdays, I am doing a β€œThirk Thursday” with β€œthirk” meaning things-that-irk-me.

    I’d love for you to participate by posting a separate item about something that irks you or including it in a regular post.

    There’s a way for you to link your post to mine every Thursday.

    Unfortunately, I’ve got a LONG list of little annoyances – things that irk me. I’m mentioning one each week.

    I would greatly appreciate a bit of help to get this started. Thanks so very much in advance and Happy WW!

    I just dropped my dogs – Anna and Salem at the Purple house. They heard about the grub and insisted Sparkles and Lily invited them. Hope they don’t break anything else! πŸ˜€

    She is too darn cute. <3
