Conversations With a Three Year-Old

Upon seeing a U.S. Navy flag is someone else's yard...
Emmalyn: Look, Mommy! They have a flag for Daddy.
Me: It's for Andrea. She's in the United States Navy, too.
E: No, only Daddy's in the Navy.
Me: Well, actually there are a lot of people in the Navy.
E: No! Only Daddy!

Random Girl: I'm from San Diego, but I'm vacationing in {insert where we live}
E: I live in {our new city} but I'm from Orlando.

The Hubs: Emmy, want to play basketball with me?
E: Of course, Daddy!
Duh.

E: That's putrid!
Not sure what the context was, but I hope it had nothing to do with me!

E: Mommy, you have to eat your breakfast; and you get what you get and you don't get upset!
At least I know she's listening!

E: Your belly is going to grow bigger--like a giant!
Greeeeaaat...

E: Mommy, I'll give you privacy, but then I'll come back to help you wipe. 

We made a Valentine's card for my five year-old nephew, & with no prompting from me whatsoever, these are the reasons she loves her cousin...
...he's my cousin
...he's big five
...he's my best friend
...I love him
...we play hide-n-seek
...he makes me laugh
...we play cars
...I love him so big!

E: There's a burr {sand spur} in my foot, but don't get it out! It's my choice!

E: Good morning, Mommy! How'd you sleep last night?
Me: Very well, thank you. How about you?
E: I cried for you in my bed.
Breaks my heart...

E: Thank you for buying me new diapers {nighttime pull-ups} They're pink, and they're my favorite!

When she wants me to get out of bed in the morning:
E: Come on, Mommy! Get up! The sun is out!
When she wants to stay in her bed in the morning:
E: Leave me alone! The sun is not out yet.

& there are a lot more where these came from! I'm glad I try to write most of them down in Emmalyn's not so baby book. They'll be fun for her to look back on.

Having a three year-old is tough, but it's also quite funny ;)

Have a happy day!

loyally,
