Meet the pirate crew of Captain Swab-Beard!
Phia had us all aboard her adventure as the chef for a pirate ship. She dubbed me the , the long bearded man, as Captain Swab-Beard and then told us each to look in our souls for our memory. We eventually discovered we were all actually family.
We then went to sleep and in the morning she woke us (without making us too grumpy) for some breakfast downstairs. After a quick pee break where we were told to pause the game (she came running up making the timeout T with her hands :-), she returned to feed us some seaweed salad (sand and grasses).
After that, we agreed to finish up the game. Which was easy. She just stopped and said, “Now let’s all turn back to our human form and celebrate by watching a movie!!!”
So then we showed Little Nanny and Pop pop “Frozen” for the first time. Phia tried to explain everything to them (Spoiler Alert!). She’s so deadpan sometimes. When the parents went on the boat she goes,”They get swalloed by a wave and die. You wanna see their gravestones?” And when Anna firsts gets out of the castle and she’s singing ‘there’s nothing in my way’ Phia goes, “except for a horse and a bucket and a boat” right before Hans knocks her in, LOL! Then she’s all, “Don’t listen to Hans cause he’s really a bully and a liar.” I had to tell her 10 times not to keep telling them everything before it hapens.
Good time today though. So glad Little Nanny and Pop pop came over (and brought traditional italian easter pies). Really made today special more than just finding eggs and eating chocolate…
Mud pie: “A mixture of dirt and water. It has to have the right jelloiness. First you put your feet in it for some stink like stinky cheese. Then you punch it for some flavor.”
Do you want a headbutt in the stomach?
"The Bucket Queen"
So she comes back in hopping and pretending to be a frog. She said to Big Uncle, “Do you know what my life is like as a frog?”
Big Uncle said, “What?”
She said, “It’s terrible. To get across yhe river I have to ride on bears. Actually they ride on me.
Phia just came in after her bath naked and said: “Naked baby coming through! I’m shaking my patootie at y’all!” and proceeded to show and wiggle her posterior at Big Uncle and me.
- Phia: Big Uncle, are you married?
- Big Uncle: No... why did you wanna know?
- Phia: I just wanted to know if you were married.
Phia and Mommy just left to go camp in the neighbor’s new camper at a nearby State Park. I was gonna go but it’s raining, they canceled the canoe tour, and I don’t want to spend the whole time in the camper. Plus I have to work 5-7 so we would have had to wait til late to go.
Anyway, I decided to just let them go ahead and stay home. Phia didn’t seem worried about me not going. She was just all hugs and kisses and excitement and “are you gonna be so proud of me?” But she also took the time to make sure I wouldn’t miss her roo much. She came over with this styrofoam ball in her hand and said, “I know what will make you not miss me too much: A little model of me!” And then she drew a smile and two little eyes. She glued on a twisted paper ponytail, put it on a toothpick, and wa-la! Instant Phia withdrawal cure. She showed me that she put it on my bedside table before they left…
