It’s been a while since I shared some words from my littles…the first two quotes are from three years ago…but at last, here they are!
One Saturday I was unsuccessfully trying to indulge in a few moments alone to read my book from the library (I actually got one for me–hurrah!). Of course, despite sitting quietly on the far corner of my bed with the door closed, I was soon detected by the mommy radars and joined by several munchkins.
5 year old daughter: What are you doing, Mummy?
Me: Reading my book.
Her: But you’re being quiet. Do you hear it inside your head?
Her: Leaning her forehead against mine and staring at me seriously with her giant blue eyes, “If I come really close, can I hear it, too?”
One late afternoon I was cuddling my 5 year old and being goofy (by that time of day my few remaining braincells have usually lost any remaining ability to function normally).
Me: Fancy meeting you here! Do I know you?
Her: Yes, I’m me.
Me: Hi, Me…oh, I thought I was me?
Her: No, you’re you!
And one more from just the other day…
Aliens Among Us
My four year old: Mom, how big does people get? Six?
Me: Six feet tall, you mean?
Him: Maaahm, that would be an alien, with six feet!
