Just some things heard in our house lately…

Hmmm. It’s like our car had a little baby! ~ little M, about our rental car while our car was in the shop

Oh. My. Goodness. It is beautiful in here! ~little M. At the toy store. Bless it.

That tower is super tall. It’s even taller than my friend John! ~little M

Mommy, you make my heart feel super happy! ~little M, while we were coloring. Sweet girl

Mommy, did you know that most bengal tigers live in India? ~little M

Mommy, it has been a long, long, long, LONG time since I’ve seen a bengal tiger. I just want to let you know that. ~little M. Drama.

Mommy, anacondas need water, or else they will get too hot. ~little M

Mommy, most jaguars live in Lackin America. ~little M

Mommy, there is a difference between crocodiles and alligators. ~little M

I don’t know, we will have to look it up on the computer. ~little M (was I tricked? I felt tricked…)

Oh no, mommy. Do I have to clean this big mess? ~little M, about cleaning up her crayons and papers. The answer was yes.

My brother is almost three. Please don’t touch him, we’re working on attachment. ~little M, at the grocery store. Clearly I tell people this a lot. Ha.

The weather is trying to tease us, huh mommy? ~little M, about our crazy sunny one minute, raining the next minute weather.

Your elbow has wrinkles, can you try not to wrinkle it, mommy. ~little M. What?

This won’t hurt… this doctor is just looking in my ear… but sharks can hurt you, you know. ~ little M, talking to baby J at her doctor appointment last week.

You know! The kia! He was a wee little man, and a wee little man was he! ~little M. Oh.

Oh, we can’t go that way, it’s a bad end. ~little M, at the store. One of the aisles was blocked off.
Do you mean a dead end? ~me
Nooo…what’s a dead end? ~little M. Ha.
