Lily's Birthday Wish

All her grandparents have been asking me what Lily wants for her upcoming birthday. I finally sat down with her to ask her.

Me: "Lily, what do you want for your birthday?"

Lily, without any hesitation at all: "Some antennae......and a stinger."

Ok, sure, that's exactly what I was thinking.....oh wait, no, it wasn't. Because seriously? What kid asks for a stinger?

Me: "Seriously Lily, if you could have anything you wanted, what would it be?"

Lily: "Well, I might want a Troy Polamalu costume, too. I think I'd really like that."

Trust me when I say, the only thing she needs to make herself more like Troy Polamalu, the strong safety for the Pittsburgh Steelers, is a big wig.....outside of that, she's pretty much just like him. You know, if you compare him to the Tasmanian Devil. With some antennae....and a stinger.


  1. I think you are getting off easy...Mia wanted a horse.

  2. Hee hee, that is true! So did you get her the horse? No? Why not? What kind of cheapskate mom are you? (hee hee, just teasing!) Madeline wanted a horse and we bought her little figurines. Apparently it isn't the same. :)
