Got Circle?

One day, when the sun was shining in Emma's eyes...

Emma:  Sun, stop lighting me!
Carina:  Emma, the Sun can't hear you.
Emma:  It has no eyes?  (Which is of course the first question she should be asking if something can't HEAR you...)
Carina:  No, no eyes.
Emma: No mouth?
Carina:  No mouth.
Emma:  Legs?
Carina:  No legs.
Emma:  Feet?
Carina:  No feet.
Emma:  Circle?
Carina.  Yes, the sun's got circle.

Can my Feet come?

Emma: Where are we going?
Mike: Home.
Emma: Home? Where my toys are?
Mike: Yes.
Emma: Can we play blocks when we get home? In my room?
Mike: Yes.
Emma: Can my feet come?
Mike: Umm... Yes because they don't come off.
Emma: They don't?!?
Mike: No.
Emma: They don't come off at all?
Mike: No. Your feet are attached to you.
Emma: So they can play too?!?

Emma: (Walking into the dining room where we are eating breakfast) MMMMM I smell something!
Mike: Oh?
Emma: Is it meat?
Mike: No, it is eggs and toast with apple butter.
Emma: Smells good! Can I have my Cheddar Bunnies? (We give her these cracker treats when she uses the toilet instead of her diaper)
Carina: Oh, yes! I forgot to give you them after you used the potty so well this morning!
Emma: I want my rabbit pasticles!
Mike: What?
Emma: Pasticles.
Mike: Cheddar Bunnies?
Emma: Yes. Rabbit Pasticles.

Bra-zen Comments

Emma:  What's that mommy?
Carina:  It's my bra.
Emma:  That's the largest thing I've ever seen!

(You just can't make this stuff up.)

Hotted Dirt.

Emma: Hotted dirt!
Mike: What dirt?

Mike: Oh, that makes much more sense.
Emma: It doesn't make cents. It makes melted dirt!

Angry Bunny!

We're all dolts

Emma:  What's a baby?
Carina:  A baby is a very very very little person.
Emma:  What's a big person?
Carina:  An adult.
Emma:  A big dolt?

Something annoyed me earlier today, and so in favor of saying a worse word, I instead said:

Carina:  Dagnabit!
Emma:  I'm not Dag Nabit.  I'm Emma Nabit!

Drum Spoons

While working around the house I kept hearing Emma run in and out of the kitchen and the opening and closing of drawers.   After spying on her for a little while I learned that she'd been stealing spoons...

Carina:  Emma, why are you stealing spoons?
Emma:  Because I need to drum!

I laughed so hard that I couldn't say no.  She then spent the rest of the morning drumming around her room with teaspoons.

Gotta love it.

Shake Your Maraca!

Carina:  Yay Emma!  You used the potty!
Emma:  Yay!
Carina:  Do you want to flush the toilet yourself?
Emma:  Yes.  It looks like a maraca.
Carina:  A maraca?  !
Emma:  Yes!
Carina:  Ok Emma, well then shake your maraca and flush.

Duck Treats

During dinner tonight, Mike and I asked Emma to tell a story.  This was her story:

Carina:  What's your story about, Emma?
Emma:  A scary monster.
Carina:  What color is the monster?
Emma:  Red, purple, and green.  And there's a Mommy monster and a Daddy monster.
Carina:  What color is the Daddy monster?
Emma:  Red, purple, and green.
Carina:  What color is the Mommy monster?
Emma:  Red, purple, and green.
Carina:  So what did the baby monster, mommy monster, and daddy monster do?
Emma:  They played together.
Carina:  So then what happens next?
Emma:  Then there was a fox.

Chick House?

Lately, Emma has been having more and more trouble going to sleep.  Whether it's nap time or bed time, she makes more and more excuses why she shouldn't go to sleep at that particular time.  Excuses can and have included:
  • I'm not tired.
  • My mouth hurts.
  • I'm hungry.
  • My hands are freezing.
  • My sock fell off.
  • It's a beautiful day.
  • It's not a beautiful day.
  • I have a boo boo.
  • I need to use the potty.
  • I peeped.
  • I pooped.
  • I'm bigger now.

Am I older?

Emma: (Asking about a conversation Carina and I were having) Why?
Mike: You'll understand when you are older.
Emma: (waits 30 seconds) I am older now!
