It’s been such a long time since I’ve posted that I’ve got to get some of this conversational cuteness out. I’ll ease back into blogging 🙂
Little Miss Sunshine has been “making” breakfast lately. She pulls the milk and cereal out and puts them on the table, and then comes and tells me that she made breakfast and it is ready. A couple days ago, there was a fight that erupted over who was going to put the milk on the table. T-Rex insisted that he wanted to get the milk out of the fridge and put it on the table.
LM – No the milk is full and it’s too heavy for you!
T – I get the milk!!
LM – It’s too heavy for you!
T – I have big muscles!!
LM – It’s too full!!
T – (now screaming) I HAVE BIG MUSCLES!!!! I HAVE BIG MUSCLES!!!
He has big muscles. And he put the milk on the table.
A couple days after Halloween, The Narrator was dishing out one piece of candy to each kid. T-Rex had picked a lollipop but then decided it was too hard and wanted something he could chew. The Narrator said, “Here, buddy, have a Tootsie Roll. They are chewy.” Little Miss, with a mouthful of chocolate said, “I want a se(x)y roll!” I looked at The Narrator trying very hard not to laugh, because that is not something I want to hear about from her Sunday School teacher and asked, “Did she just say se(x)y roll?!” Oh yes she did. Needless to say, that one has become quite the little joke between us here at home!!
Stories are a big deal around this house. I’m not the only one who loves to tell them. Little Miss is getting into stories too. We stayed with one of The Narrator’s brothers and wife for about a week while we were in Michigan a few weeks ago. As we were pulling out of the driveway to spend the last couple days of our trip at his parents’ house, Little Miss said rather matter-of-factly, “That was the story of Uncle K and Aunt M. The end!” I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry!!
