Those of you with SmartPhones understand how addicting some of the apps can be, like Angry Birds.  Until I got a SmartPhone, I had no idea why those birds were so angry.  Now I do.  They really should have been called Addicting Angry Birds.

Speaking of Angry Birds, remember how I ordered an Angry Birds costume for Princess Nagger since that’s what she wants to dress up as for Halloween? If you missed that, here’s a picture from the site where I ordered it:

To get it all poofy like that (you know, to make her looked like a stuffed Angry Bird…wait, that doesn’t sound quite right…) it came with an extra piece that will hold two standard pillows – one in the front and one in the back, all conveniently stowed under the outer part of the costume.  The material ‘pockets’ look rather small for actual standard pillows, so I might pick up stuffing and just stuff the pockets and be done with it – plus then Princess Nagger’s pillows won’t get dirty.  Don’t worry, I’ll be taking pictures of her actually wearing it at some point.

See how the face of the face of the human is showing through?  Should I paint Princess Nagger’s face yellow so she’ll ‘blend in’ as it were, or just leave her face au naturale?

Speaking of yellow,  last week Princess Nagger received her very first bee sting ever.  I remember getting my first when I was four years old, running around our backyard barefoot and stepped on one.  Luckily there are no allergies to bees in our family, so her getting a bee sting wasn’t a big deal.  But the conversation about it was chuckle-worthy:

PN (immediately after getting off the bus):  “Well, it took 8 years.”

Me:  “What took 8 years?”

PN:  “To find out if I’m allergic to bees or not!”

Me:  “Well, I already knew you’re not allergic, neither me or Dada are allergic, so chances of you being allergic were very slim.  Why?”

PN (holding up her arm):  “Because I got stung today – see?”

Me:  “Oh, bummer!  Did it hurt?”

PN:  “Of course it hurt!  First I felt something on my butt, and when I went to brush it off, it stung my wrist instead.”

Me (trying not to laugh):  “Did your butt get stung too?”

PN:  “No, I was too fast for him, so he got my wrist instead.  Then I smashed him to pieces.  Literally.”

Me (not able to control the giggles):  “I’m sorry you got stung.”

PN:  “It hurts!  And itches!  Stupid bee.  Totally ruined my lunch recess.”

Stupid bee indeed.

  1. I would say leave off the full-face paint. My kids always scratch at their faces after the paint dries. Also — supercute that your girl will have a great story to tell whenever someone mentions a bee sting. Mine is boring: Sitting in class in the 3rd grade and a bee flew in an open window and stung my knee. See boring.

  2. Wow, it sounds like PN handled that sting like a BOSS!! I have never been stung, which is kind of awesome, but kind of terrifying b/c I have no idea if I am allergic or not. I really need to get on that whole allergy test thing.

    Painting her face would be visually pleasing as far as the whole look of the costume is concerned, but it would probably rub off quickly and just be overall irritating.

    And, yes, Angry Birds is hella addictive!! Happy Tuesday 😀

  3. OPppss, sorry Stacy. I accidentally linked up my blog here w/c I wasn’t supposed to do, I was distracted by the slow internet.

    Anyways, what I wanted to say was thanks for the comment in my 4Ms post and the crazy thing, here in the Philippines, they are coming up w/ an anti-angry birds bill. :p

  4. I love the princess… she is a hoot… “well it took 8 years”. So glad she wasn’t allergic… I am and ever since I was a kid, if there is a bee ready to sting someone, he finds me… Go for the yellow face! As for the phone, it has taken all the willpower I have not to download games. I know I will be totally screwed if I do….

  5. yikes! I stepped on a Bee too but I was I think 10 ? PN did well to get the wrist as it would have been a PITA to sit on a sting. hahah PITA oops, that wasn’t my plan it just happened.
    The custume looks great.

  6. We had our first bee sting this past year and it got so red and swollen I just about freaked out. But…after cleaning it and adding cream, the next day it was fine. Just a dot. Ours was from simply sitting in the grass.

  7. Bee stings are no fun. It never failed every summer when I was a kid I’d get stung at least once. That was in the day when barefooting wasn’t such a big deal. Why wear out a pair of good shoes that my parents couldn’t afford for summer anyhow, right? The last time I got stung was several years ago when a very angry yellow jacket repeatedly nailed my foot over and over until I squashed that sucker dead. Oh my foot and toes swelled so badly and itched like crazy! Thanks for hosting the randomness this Tuesday.

  8. I’d have the face paint ready, Chances are if you don’t she’ll want her face painted, if you’ve got it then your ready. Am I a mom to a fickle child, yes, why do you ask?
    I hate stinging insects. So sorry that PN got stung. The last time I got stung was at the zoo. Crazy bugs.

  9. To be yellow or not be yellow…That is the question. I kind of like the natural look, but then to be more authentic, you should paint her face yellow. What does she say? What’s PN’s thoughts on the subject?

    My youngest daughter is allergic to bees. I have to carry an Epi-Pen for her and she has one at school too. We found out when she was a toddler that she was allergic to bees. She had been stung on the wrist as well and began to swell up immediately. Very scary!

  10. Can’t wait to see her in the costume!! I would leave her face natural!! Maybe some yellow around the eyes!!
    Hugs to you

  11. Gotta vote yellow face. PN seems like she would be a purist about such a thing. At least two yellow cheek circles. Bees don’t panic me as much as mosquitoes these days around here! Glad she was quicker than him!

  12. I was in such a hurry to finish my post during my lunch break I completely forgot to publish it after I saved it. So, ya, I linked up to a post that wasn’t even live. Love it!

    We’re big fans of Angry Birds here too. J-Man hasn’t decided on his costume yet even though he had a deadline of this past weekend.

    I hate bees!

  13. Well, isn’t she the big girl! I’m allergic to bee stings, so is my youngest son. We get all swelly and turn colors and then we can’t breathe. So I carry the pen with me everywhere I go in bee season. She’s such a trooper! Stupid bees! ~snicker~

  15. Hi! I’m a new subscriber via the Over 40 Blog Hop. 🙂

    I would definitely go with the yellow grease paint; your PN sounds savvy enough not to scratch and smear. 🙂
