my girl.

{sorry in advance for all the awful iPhone/point & shoot pics, I'll do better... one day... maybe}.

Can we just ignore the fact that I've been a terrible bloggess as of late and pretend I still have a few loyal fans out there waiting on this post? perfect.

** Hope you don't mind that I started calling myself as a bloggess; I figured (a) no one else was going to and (b) I'm so over the word blogger, who's with me?

Anyways I decided May is the month I start blogging again, for real. No more Debbie Downer posts where I cry about my cry baby baby or confession posts where I admit to eating an entire box of pirate cookies, I mean who doesn't? oh nobody? that's embarassing. moving on...

Well ladies and gentlemen {yes I recently found out I have male followers - plural - yikes}, today is the day I'm going back to my roots, where I dedicate entire posts to my favourite firstborn, Miss Saigerella.
Once upon a time she was all I blogged about and then her ginger baby brother showed up and stole the show with his demanding ways and debonair smile. To make our girl feel a little less forgotten when she reads this 20+ years from now {or never}, I compiled a tip-of-the-iceberg list of all her 3 year old comments & quirks...


I refer to them as Saige'isms

- When traffic stops for her at a crosswalk, instead of raising her hand like a normal person to say 'thank you', our little pedestrian holds up the peace sign. I'm pretty sure the drivers in Vernon think we're raising a mini-John Lennon or Japanese tourist.

- Should I dare raise my voice, Saige tells me to "calm down" and "take a deep breath" while demonstrating a long drawn out inhale & exhale. Saige needs to learn that telling excitable people to calm down is never a good idea {no matter how cute you say it}.
- She's all about "choices" these days and is constantly asking what her "options" are... umm you're 3, you don't have any, it's either milk or milk.

- We've entered the helpful AND agreeable stage for which I'm taking FULL advantage...
Example #1:
Mom: "can you grab mommy a diaper?"
Saige: "shhure I can"

Example #2:
Mom: "can you let the dogs in?"
Saige: "okay momma"
- She loves ssauges {massages}, zert {dessert} and prizes {surprises} almost as much as I love hearing her say them.

- Our little girl continues to be a BIG time tomboy... all her dresses are covered in dirt, she fancies taking her shirt off when "it's beautiful out" and she asks if she can pee standing up. I think this is all because her besties are boys; the good news is that her Buzz Lightyear shirts and toy trains can get handed down to Gabe next year.
- Saige said "shut up" the other day {not my proudest mommy moment} and when I questioned her about it, she tells me she said, "shut the gas off" ... she's quick that one, good thing I'm quicker ;)

- Like most preschoolers {I hope} Saigers is one fantastic interrupter. We taught her how to say "excuse me", but now she just interrupts us with "s'cuse me" every 5 seconds. That's so much better... NOT! 
- My daughter's social calendar is waaay more exciting than my own leaving Tuesdays as our only 'do nothing' day. If it wasn't for preschool, play dates, soccer and swimming, I'd probably never get out of the house my pj's. 
- Other Saige phrases we hear on a regular basis include: "oh my goodness", "it's okay, I'll live", "I like you AND love you" {bonus!}, "I don't know what to choose", "no! don't count" {if I'm giving her a 1,2,3 warning}, "you know what I'm thinking?", "you're the best momma in the whole world" and "look at my size".

3 is awesome, SHE is awesome. 

Saige has become the very best part of my day. She's like my morning cup of comedy and I find myself wanting to talk brag about her all.the.time. We play the 'your daughter/your son' game in our house {if you're unfamiliar, it involves one parent blaming the other for their child's unpleasantness - ie. "your daughter didn't eat her dinner" or "your son needs a bum change"}. Well I'm happy to report that I've started taking credit for her again. Let's see how long this lasts.

She is sooo cute! I love the options part. I'll never forget the time Mattias came right up to my face at 5am in the morning asking "Mommy, what are my options?" uh, maybe go back to bed or deal with a grumpy mommy all day?

KIDS..

That striped shirt with the skinny jeans just kills me. What a little hipster. It's pretty clear that she's not just cute, but also clever and smart!

Kathleen said...

Did I not see that exact gap outfit on her mom's twitter feed??? Hilarious. We get the constant "s'cuse me" interruptions too. I'm soooo torn about 3. I love it and hate it all at the same time.

She is a cutie. Is she loving soccer? I've been thinking about putting Sheldon in it too.

Love love love Saige and her antics. Heart you and the family Sara.

Tayllar said...

I was wondering if you were still alive out there! (; Seems like Saige is a wonderful little girl and quite the comedian!

ana {bluebirdkisses} said...

love these! i think your pics turned out great! and Saige is so beautiful!

Jena said...

I love her spunk!

I often think how boring my life would be without my constant entertainment(kids)!

Everyday is an adventure!

The A and B Stories said...

She is SO ADORABLE! I hope hope hope I have a little girl one day too :)

Analilia said...

She's a sassy one!! Love it!

Lisa said...

she's awesome. honestly: giving the peace sign while crossing the street??? love!
on another note: so I should re-think teaching seba to say "excuse me" when interrupting?

Rosa @ FlutterFlutter said...

Seriously cute kid!!! I loved 3. I miss 3 some days. It's kinda the perfect age in my mind.

Ashley said...

what are my options?! ahh I love it!

Randalin. said...

She is so awesome! I loved this post. Also, THANK YOU for saying that 3 is awesome. All I ever hear is that 3 is worse than 2, 3 is the hardest, blah, blah, blah. I HAVE A TWO YEAR OLD - I NEED HOPE!!! Thanks :)

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

LOL... I threaten the 'grumpy mommy' card when Saige fights bedtime! Glad I'm not the only one.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

ha! Skinny jeans have become a closet staple for those skinny little legs of hers.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

Oh Kathleen, I need a stripe intervention. And she's semi-loving soccer - practice is great cause everyone gets their own ball; game time is when gets a bit 'iffy' because the older kids "steal" her ball when she's trying to score. As a mommy spectator it's SO fun to watch.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

ditto Del and I hear you're going to be an aunt come Fall?!

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

thanks for noticing my absence cutie ;)

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

you're just being nice Ana :P I gotta go read your photog tutorials again.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

true dat!

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

Well I see you're pinning things to a nursery board?? Is there something you're not telling us? ;)

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

you nailed it.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

tough call... people comment on her 'politeness' when she interrupts with "excuse me" so it makes me look like a good, manner teaching parent... does that help?

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

I'm feeling the same way {for the moment}

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

you just wait :D

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

I heard the same song & dance and since Kale and Saige are quite similar in many ways I say 3 year old Kale is going to be way awesome!

christine, just bella said...

ohmygosh, I love how she flashes the peace sign!! That Saige has some spunk, I love it!
