Baby Villa

Monday already. I hope Baby Villa can make Mondays a bit better for you. The routine here today: He Speaks, I Type. Welcome to Baby E's Post of The Week:

____________________

Hi. I have a lot in my notes for today. I don't know what to say first. That makes me be quiet. My mom says to just look at my notes and stick to that order, but I want to say the other stuff first. Can I, Mom? OK. She says we'll try it for awhile with me just talking....mom...I feel mixed up again.

OK. We'll do the notes. We went to a graduation party for my mom's friend's daughter and this is an exciting story. There are lots of parts to it. The first part is you need to know this part.

I was in our paper! Our paper did a story on me that was almost the whole page and they called me "web phenom." A lady came to the house and asked me questions. I asked my mom if I behaved and she said yes. I asked her for a prize for behaving, and she said no.

At this party, this lady said, "hey...I read about you today." And my body was bursting with proud, and I wanted to say braggity stuff. But I knew I couldn't. I said, "that was me." And that was all. But inside I wanted to and wished I could have done my backwards robot dance and said, "uh huh oh yeah uh huh." But I knew not to. And you can't brag, either.

I found a newspaper thing my mom cut out of the paper and thinks she secretly hid in the cabinets on how to not spoil your kids. I saw it and said, "mom. now your tricks won't work cuz I found this!" And I grabbed the paper and showed her. She just laughed. But I'm going to watch her for tricks like not buying me stuff. And like that.

I like to wear my big brother's white shoes and pretend they're clown shoes. My mom always laughs for that.

My mom is teaching me cursive. I have learned a lot of tricks. This one is important: if you make your small t sides too apart it will look like an a. The small t sides need to touch.

My mom makes me wear my summer socks and I don't like them. I can't say hate. But I don't like them A LOT. They are small and white and have no tops on them so they look like little baby shoes. I don't like them.

I have more stuff written down but my mom says only one more story. I have 6 more stories. I have to pick one.

Tonight we rented Astroboy and the dad was mean to the kid in it. I've noticed that in kid's movies lately, there is always a person that crushes that kid's dreams. The kid in the movie's dreams. Like in Toy Story, they say, "you can't play guitar" how do they know that? You have to tell the kid that he can and then he will.

Next week I will tell you about this dog I want. It is so unspeakably cool you couldn't even describe it in words. I want a dog like that. He was at the graduation party.

Bye.

  1. Baby E, will your mom teach me cursive?

  2. I agree, Baby E---parents lately have been given a bad name in kid movies. Makes me feel sad for those kids whose dreams get crushed.

    You know what we say in our house instead of the "H" Word? We say "seriously dislike" and "loathe". I don't like the "H" word either, or "Stupid" so we aren't allowed to say them. It kinda turns it into a game when you have to think of substitutions for words you can't say.

    Good job for making it into the paper. The only time I ever made it into black and white was when I got married 20 years ago! You're way ahead of me!

    Hope you have a happy Monday!

  3. My plain white summer socks got tie dyed.
    And they're lovely.
    :)

    I love cursive handwriting... seems like no one uses it anymore.

  4. Hi Dude. Very cool that you got interviewed for the newspaper and are a web phenom. Your mom's pretty cool to let you have your own blog once a week.

    I used to love cursive until I got older. Then it just got too hard to keep all my lines close together. Every letter looks like an A.

  5. I always want to say braggity stuff! Its hard to remember not to because my mom isn't always around to remind me not to, but I have a husband which is almost as good.

  6. Oh I have lots of things I don't like A LOT too. Well done famous paper boy!

  7. And this right here is how you know that you are absolutely a GREAT parent: And my body was bursting with proud, and I wanted to say braggity stuff. But I knew I couldn't. I said, "that was me." And that was all. But inside I wanted to and wished I could have done my backwards robot dance and said, "uh huh oh yeah uh huh." But I knew not to. Fantastic.

  9. E,

    there wil always be those that attempt to squash your dreams, dont let them. do listen though because if someone that you respect tells you perhaps you should consider another...

    hope after that article on not spoiling your kids the puppy is not just a dream...smiles.

  12. Baby E -
    I am doing my backwards robot dance for you.
    Yes I am.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Really? Cursive? I could use another lesson or two. I seem to have forgotten it. You are quite the writer btw. Maybe you could give me some pointers. And congrats on the Web Phenom thing.

  14. Baby E, please tell your mom that I have something for her at my place.

  15. I find the backwards robot dance is best done in private or in your head. It is, however, a great skill to have.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Very cool post! I may need you to teach me some cursive tricks- I am a teacher and have a hard time sometimes! That B gets me every time.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Congrats on yet another entertaining post, Baby E (oh, and also for the newspaper article too - high five!)
    BTW, I LOVE your new button - I'm totally gonna put it on my blog this week:)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Good luck with the cursive! If you figure out how to talk your Mom into the dog, let me know. Maybe I can use your technique!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh, baby E - I get quiet when I have a lot to say too. We're kindred spirits. And I also don't like summer socks quite a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Aww, summer socks. Those sound awful. My favorite part about summer is never (well, outside of the gym) wearing socks.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Congratulations on making it into the paper! Great post today, and as for the socks, no one should be made to wear socks in the summer although I am now wearing shoes everywhere in my house living as I do in fear of a fourth encounter with a scorpion!

  22. Baby E, I love your new photo, especially the mustache. Very suave. And congratulations on making the newspaper - a hero of Latin American history and a web phenom?! You're quite a guy!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I LOVE this kid!! And you go ahead & do your robot dance, just don't rub it in people's faces LOL!! As for the summer socks, I'm with your Mom on this one, I don't let my son wear high socks with shorts either...looks kinda goofy!! As always, another great installment from Baby E!!! :-D

  24. How cute.. and if someone isn't squashing dreams ever notice the mother is always dead..whats with that.

    Can't wait to read about the dog

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hey Baby E, I think your mom is a meanie for making you wear white summer socks. I'm on your side with this one. Bare feet is the way to go, even if it does make your shoes stinky. You only live once Baby E. I would negotiate this out of your web phenom contract. Get your older brother to act as your lawyer. If you need any help just contact me. I know people.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I wish I could see your backwards robot dance! Sounds cool! Good for you for not bragging. That is an extremely hard thing to do. Many adults can't even stop bragging!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I think Baby E and I would get along really well. I, too, want to say braggity stuff but force myself to keep it to a minimum. As for my backward robot dance, I keep that to a maximum.

    Love the Baby E posts!

  28. Cool beans! Congrats on the newspaper article!! *does a back flip* Hey, and now you're learning cursive AND famous... can I have your autograph?

    I think you should look into your own DVD line of Manner Videos. Way cool. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hey Baby E, How exciting to be in the newspaper! That is something not everybody can say and quite an honor.
    You know what else? I can't wait to hear about the dog. I saw an unspeakably cool dog this week that I want too, so I know what you mean.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wow ... a web phenom! You're living (my) dream!!! I guess it is cool when you're a kid and not so cool when you're a 42-year-old. Humph. Lucky you to get into this so early.

    And, dude, your mom already pulled on over on you when you didn't get a prize for behaving with the newspaper lady. Psych!

    ReplyDelete
  31. He is just so adorable I want to squeeze him...then borrow him to write some posts for my blog.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Baby Villa- You have a very, very big fan in Arkansas. My boys are younger than you are, but I really hope that as they get older they will be as insightful and articulate as you. Oh, and keep listenin' to your mama. You guys are obviously a great team. Can't wait til next Monday! Love, Lucy

    ReplyDelete
  33. I can hardly wait to read about this unspeakably cool dog. If you can't speak about it can you still get your mom to write it on her blog?

    ReplyDelete
  34. "...body bursting with proud...."

    I feel the same way when I look at my daughter. I love reading your posts Baby E. It amazes and amuses me to see how the mind of a super awesome child works! Thanks for sharing!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh Baby E/Villa, I'm so delighted that you were in the newspaper! Even if you didn't get a prize for behaving. Congratulations and I can't wait to hear about your cool dog that you want.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hahaha love it! I want to know what the coolest dog is, is it a panda dog? I really want one of those..

    Gave you an award today, enjoy =)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Waaaaah- I want to cry. I lost my ultra long comment! No fair.

    BUT for Baby E, I'll type again. (Am I allowed to curse the rain for making the broadband connection poorer? Ah, never mind!)

    I'll sum it up: Made me smile SO much. I needed it so badly.

    That picture made me guffaw! Love the "no bragging" and "small t" parts!

    This kid was in the paper? Oooh! Alternate title suggestion- weekly escapades of FAMOUS little cool dude!

    Let him type all six stories Mom A, please!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I have seen that in many movies too. Maybe those parents are aliens in disguise!
    BTW, congrats on getting on the Newspaper. Hooray! Would love to hear about that dog.
    Smiles...

    ReplyDelete
  39. hilarious. And I could totally picture the "clown" shoes. LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Congratulations on your story in the paper! You ARE a web phenom!

    The story I liked best is the one about you noticing the frequency with which someone crushes a kid's dream in the movies. Unfortunately, it happens all too often in real life. It's people like you who will grow up and change that.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I've noticed that with kid movies, too. Either that, or someone has to die. Bah.

    Congrats on being in the paper! I would say that is definitely worth the robot dance! :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. i love this!!!!

  43. Well, Baby E...I was in Cedarburg this past weekend and my sister handed me the newspaper with YOUR ARTICLE in it! I was so bursting with proud for you too! Now I know you even better.

    I like that you are learning cursive. My sister is a bit of a handwriting expert and has a program aimed at kids to develop writing skills (the forming of the letters not the subjects to write about - that was my specialty as a former English teacher - and you are doing quite well on that).

    And guess what? My nephew says that he knows you from your picture in the article. Apparently, you played basketball together!

    I am so excited to say that I 'knew' Baby E when.... don't let all that fame go to your head and getting all braggity and such!

    But keep on writing, because that is one of the skills that will carry you through life.

    Enjoy the day!
    Erin
