Don't mind me

The other day, Aria came up to me with a Lego sword.

AJ: Momma, I need to cut you.  Okay?
Me: What?  Why do you need to cut me?
AJ: Mom.  I need to cut you with this.  It'll be okay.  I just need to collect your blood.  
*she holds up a small green balloon that has not been blown up yet and points to it*
Me: Why do you need my blood?
AJ: Mom.  I just do.  I'm collecting blood from all different animals.  Elephant, Monkey...

So...I'm not sure if I should be bothered by the fact that she wanted to cut me with a Lego sword, that she wanted to harvest my blood in a small balloon, or that she lumped me with elephants and monkeys. 


  1. I'm sure she meant it as a compliment, she finds you an interesting enough specimen to lump in with elephants and monkeys. :) Good luck with that! Willow asked me the other day if I knew what she wanted to be when she grows up... I guessed veterinarian or zookeeper... turns out the correct answer was a vampire. Huh. I asked her how she was going to make money doing that and apparently she is going to sell some of the blood she collects, so there you go. Lol.

    1. Ha! I'm going to go ahead and go with your interpretation. Also, I love that Willow's career aspiration is to be a vampire. :)
