Tiny Talk Tuesday

Pat:  Adeline, it is so late that I am only going to read you one book tonight.
A:  How about two?
Pat:  Okay, we can read two.
A:  (without missing a beat) How about three?

A:  I'm not your mommy.
me:  I hope not!
A:  You're MY mommy.
me:  Yes, sweetheart.
A:  and that other one's the daddy.
me:  which one?
A:  (thinks for a minute)  daddy.

me (reading The Velveteen Rabbit to Adeline):  "The Rabbit sighed.  He longed to become Real."
A (looking at the drawing of the boy sleeping with his Rabbit):  Is that Camille?
me:  No, honey, this story is about a boy.
A:  Why is he longing to be Camille?
...it took me a while to figure out what she meant, but then I realized how hilarious this is!

And, although this one isn't from one of my kids, A coworker told me this story about when she was talking with her friend's two year old...

coworker:  "What does a cow say?"
2yo:  "Eat more chicken."

I love it!

Head over to Mary's for more Tiny Talkers...

Oh your girls are growing up so adorable! Love these. What great ages :)

the velveteen rabbit conversation is awesome! What a great question based on her "hearing"...LOL!

i think the story of velveteen rabbit is not about the rabbit becoming real, but about a mommy becoming real.

funny store.
