I don't think that I would make it through some days without the little things. There was a time in my life when the language of children almost annoyed me, but I have since realized, sometimes these silly sayings just need to make someone smile. We have had a few whoppers in our house lately....
Last night A woke up about 1 a.m. screaming "Mommy!! Hep me, Hep me!!" Now I don't laugh at my children's fears, I know how scary night terrors can be, especially when you're 2!, but I had to smile at the end of this conversation.
Me: "Shhh, it's ok. Mommy has you now"
A: "Is scarwy"
Me: "What's scary?"
A: "Da nake"
Me: "What snake?"
A: "Da nake on my piwow"
Me: "There was a snake on your pillow? That would be scary! It's ok, Da took the snake away. It's all gone now"
(A cuddles to me for a minute and then states)
A: "Wow, dat was a yittle scarwy!"
Me: "Are you ok now?"
A: "Yeah, I ahwrite. Night!"
At least she gets over it fast right?
Then there was this one....
I was getting up from pulling presents out from under the tree. I must have grunted or something of the like while getting up because A announced to me...
"Oh mom, your getting a wittle heavy!"
Gee, thanks. :)
And then there is always the picture of the girls holding the dogs head in their hands and saying "Your a good boy!" or K's most recent "Cutie, cutie thing!"
