The little ones are chattin away this week. Here are some of the cute things they said:
While coloring at the kitchen table:
Kyra: Mom, when I turn 4, I'm going to be funny.
(That's a great ambition kiddo. I think you are already there though.)
Upon entering another furniture store (we've been shopping a lot for new couches):
Kyra: Mom, is this another funeral store?
(No, we haven't been shopping for caskets Kyra, just couches.)
Kyra: What are we going to do today?
Mom: (feeling bad that all we've been doing is furniture shopping, I thought I'd take her to the local butterfly exhibit) I think we are going to do something special today!
Kyra: What kind of seats does it have?
(ehh...you know your child has had furniture store overload, when she starts classifying where she's going by the seats she sits on.)
While reading a bed time story:
Mom: And what is this animal Katie?
Katie: (moments pass and still a blank stare)
Mom: That's a duck. (I try to hide my frustration, as my 2 year old still blanks out, or chooses not to say so many easy words.) Okay, let's go on to the next page. Ohh, look at some of these pretty birds!
Katie: (getting excited, and pointing) Kookaburra!
(Oh, I get it. Maybe the duck isn't challenging enough. She goes for the tough ones first!
