A Little Princess

The other week I ran into a neighbour. This person happened to teach us something on our Finnish course, as well. She's known R2 for years and years. That day she was with her granddaughter. The granddaughter's name is Milena and she's around 4 years old.

Since we live nearby each other, we walked home together from the supermarket. On the way home, Milena told her grandma, "Grandma, grandma, I have a wish!"

Her grandma asked, "What do you wish for?"

Milena answered, "For you, I wish for hair!"

Grandma replied, "Okay, and what do you wish for your Dad?"

Milena answered right away, "A sword!"

Grandma asked again, "What do you wish for Amelia? This woman is Amelia." (she pointed at me)

Milena thought for a little while and said, "A BIG SNOUT!" (she specifically mentioned a reindeer snout)


Her grandma once told us in the classroom that one time they were playing together. Milena had a magic wand and she twirled it around grandma's head and said, "You'll change into a frog. You'll change into a frog."

When the grandma didn't change, Milena then decided, "Grandma, I think this wand is broken. It's not working."

Oh dear he he he he....

Kids can be SO VERY FUNNY he he he he he...Sorry I haven't blog-hopped. Been SO BUSY today. I'll do it tomorrow, OK?


  1. Jason love to see frog cartoon in the tv, everyday in the morning :D Lately i've been lazy for blogging ^_^

  2. Oh, she sounds like a real sweetie!

  3. I was reading your post with Amos & he was so delighted to see the frog. LOL :):)

  4. yes speak to the kid around 4 years old speak is funny. my little girl did it too, my hubby and i have to laugh to hear what she said hehehe :)

  5. LOL! Gotta love kids! Btw, is Milena a commonly used Finnish name? It would be interesting because it's a rather common name here in the Czech republic (though not very widely used for children these days, it used to be popular when my mom was a kid)

  6. Jul: I know how you feels he he he...

    Blur Ting: Yes, she is! ;-D

    Janice: HA HA HA HA...Amos loves the frog? GREAT! ;-D
