Rain boots


Girl at the car repair shop: “Where did you get those beautiful eyelashes?!”

Liv: “Disneyland.”


[Another moment of realization that she is indeed my heart walking around outside my body]

“Oh, I JUST LOVE sleeping! Sleeping is the best.”


[As we’re walking out the door to leave]

Me: “Bye dogs. Bella, be a good girl.”

Liv: “Oh, Bella. She’s a trash can.”

[I had called Bella a trash can a couple of nights before, when she had eaten our leftover food off the table. Kids NEVER FORGET.]


“Watch me. I’m going to do my mushroom face.”

[Scrunches face up into a scowl]

“See, look. I’m a mushroom.” 


This last one happened during naptime. I had put Liv down to sleep almost an hour before this happened, but she had been rolling around and playing in her bed. Suddenly, she starts yelling, 

“MOM. Mom, I need you.”

(And I think “Here we go again. Turn the music up, read another story, get more water to drink, etc.”)

“MOM. MOM! You forgot to put a diaper on me!”

Liv has been potty-trained during the day since this summer, but we still use diapers for naps and bedtime. Turns out that yes, I had totally forgotten to put a diaper on her for nap. Fail to me haha. 


“I want a brother or a sister. I’m the only one.”

  1. So cute! Love that you are documenting these fun things she’s saying! Sounds like she is a super smart and fun little girl!

  2. Does this mean shes getting a brother or sister?!

  3. Awww she played the Sibling Card! Excellent. 😀

  4. Oh my gosh she sounds soooo adorable! I love these!

  5. Ha! “I’m the only one!” Gotta love kid pressure. And then there’s my kids who are like, “Can you send this baby away, please? We have enough.”

  6. The things she says are just adorable! I love these posts!

  7. These get me every time!! Too cute. Kids say the darnedest things.

  8. That last one got me for sure, but I am pregnant and hormonal. 🙂 That is the sweetest thing ever. One of my biggest regrets in life is waiting so long to try for another after my daughter. There is almost a three year gap between her and the one I am pregnant with, after unfortunately losing a pregnancy in between. I can’t wait for my sweetie to have a sister!

      awww! so excited for you <3
      i already feel kind of badly that we've waited for so long (and are continuing to wait). i hope i can get pregnant again, have a safe and healthy pregnancy, i hope all of these things, but at the same time, i think we made the right choice to wait a while.

      • You will have plenty of time!! I think I may be a bit older than you. 😉 Despite having waited, the time line really worked for me in some ways- it is so awesome that my daughter will be really aware and able to help with the new baby. I’m sure it will be the same with Livi!

        • Fitnessista says:

          yes, i hope so! i think she’ll be a huge help 🙂 also, kyle and i are 4 years apart and we’ve always been very close and never fought growing up. (even though i totally made him dress like a girl sometimes haha)

  9. OMG! So funny! If Disneyland sells magical eyelashes, I need to get me a pair stat!

  10. Always love these reads 🙂

  11. So sweet. Love the last one. My 3yr old often tells me about himself and my 5 year old (they are 23 months apart) “Sadie and I were babies together, Mom, did you know that?” ♡

  12. These are my favourite posts! She’s so adorable. I love the last one haha!

  13. You really never know what kids are gonna say. They’re so funny!

    We’ve been working on potty training for about a month now. My son has done really great at home, but only in the past couple of weeks has he started telling us he needs to go while we’re out. We were at a restaurant the other day and he needed to go so I took him. When we came out he was so excited. He yelled across the restaurant,”Daddy, I pottied! I really did! Now you need to potty too, Daddy!” Haha

    • Fitnessista says:

      hahah that is awesome!
      sometimes when we’re in public restrooms, liv will sing and do “the potty dance” (a ridiculous dance i do when she goes) for ME. i’m like thanks liv hahah


    :DDD I want to give her the biggest Christmas present.

  15. I may or may not have (but totally did) fallen off my couch laughing at the mushroom face one!!

  16. I think we have a Sleepnessista in the making 😉

  17. Haha! Too funny! Love the sibling comment.

  18. I THINK THIS WAS MY FAVOURITE ROUND 😀 laughing out loud as always!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!! Just what I needed today 🙂

    Liv: “Oh, Bella. She’s a trash can.”

  25. So sweet! I’m itching at the bit to have my first. Here’s hoping it happens in the next couple months!

  26. Yes, get on that last one! 🙂 Your readers need another mini Fitnessista!

  27. Livi-isms are some of my favorite posts of yours! I was also wondering where she got her eyelashes 🙂

  28. Aww so sweet she wants a brother or sister!

    And I wholeheartedly agree about sleep! It is the BEST!

  29. Omg. She is sooo cute. The sibling card, too funny because they are just so observant. <3 I want eyelashes from Dinseyland <3

  30. I love your Livi-ism posts, especially after meeting her this week! She is too precious! 🙂

  31. I love these!!!! So cute!!

  32. Ah she is so cute! My girls were bdghing for a sibling until they got one then they were asking the midwife to take her back! Haha they adore her now though.

  33. What a cutie pie!

  34. Too funny! I love the “I want a brother or sister” I’m the only one. I have a 3 yr old son and he hasn’t asked yet about a sibling. Funny everyone asks about baby number 2, huh? I get asked all the time:)

  35. My 5 year old nephew told his mom she is a mean mommy because he doesn’t have a sister like his daddy does! (Aka me) haha. I think they get it from school when the other kids have siblings and they feel like, hey why don’t i??
