super tuffy









mindless word fun may not save the world, but it certainly keeps me amused. this time my six-year-old was loitering behind my back, watching me piece together phrases from my magic bag of words, and suddenly i saw a little hand slip into the stash and run off with a few. it hadn't occurred to me to set her loose on this game, but it should have - before i knew it, she was off in a corner, lost in verbal nirvana.

i convinced her to let me peek at her first two pieces:




which sent me to thrillsville! i now have a co-conspirator, one who is old enough to understand the world but not old enough to be warped by it yet. she has her priorities in order, i'd say.

Anairam said...

What a wonderful team you make! Have faith in temptation - choose only brownies. Now who can argue with that?!

Bella Sinclair said...

I've just witnessed the birth of another fabulous word-mash artist. Aaaahhhh! Choose brownies. YES!

Oh my goodness, girl. You are sending me subversive messages. Velvetize? Temptation? Cheese-food? And some of these aren't even real words! Holy moly, where do you GET all these. Hahaha!

peggyfussell said...

HA!!! That is just plain wonderful. I believe I WILL choose brownies, and then I will have to choose elasticize AND velvetize. See? Instant weirdness.

aimee said...

finding out that she could mash words just sent me to the moon!! i consider it fair compensation for the grief that my other one, the almost-three year old, is putting me through at the moment ;)

as for the not-real words? they're from 50s magazines storylines and ads... complete TREASURES...

oh, by the way, i have no idea why the image quality is so crappy. some days it just is what it is.

joanne said...

i'm thinking we could all take us some lessons in life and living and art wording from her... she seems to have her head on pretty straight :)

Shell said...

I'm just happy there is enough cheese food for everyone. I have to have my cheese.
Seriously, I love this mindless word fun. I have to try it myself.

Liz said...

Indeed she does... and I am remembering to have faith in temptation too...

jane said...

~Valentina~ said...

Super smart little girl... Love + Brownies.. what else you need? hmmm... maybe ice cream ;)

writewhereiam said...

Hi Aimee!
I love anything that mentions brownies...but I'm frankly a little worried about the mysterious broth!

kendalee said...

LOVE it! A star is born...

kendalee said...

PS yours are pretty cool too! ;o)

aimee said...

the mysterious broth frightens me a bit, too. but with enough cheese-food (whatever that really is) for everybody, faith in temptation, brownies and love, what more does one need?

p.s. i had a few REALLY raunchy ones in here but i took them out before i posted :D

steve said...

The results can be amazing and amusing when you collaborate with kids. Good stuff here Aimee!

cactus petunia said...

(and I am the woman gabbling to herself in the corner!)

Megan Coyle said...

"choose only brownies"
Now those are some real words of wisdom :)

hanna-happenings said...

The daughter of a clever mother!

And by the way, me too a mother of a threeyearold, those kids can be really labyrinthic! ;)

trinsch said...

she's good!

oiseaux said...

"Calm down there's enough cheese-food for everybody" ?!?!?
this is the best thing i've seen in at least a month! i think i might need a copy for my kitchen.
