At the park today:
Me: "Cosette, did you see how your cousin just slid down that pole? I bet you could do it like that too if you tried.
Cosette(looking a bit timid): "Yeah mom, but I don't have as much leg as he does!" ( I think she meant that she's not as tall as him :)
At the table a few days ago:
Me: Eli, do you want to go to Benjamin's birthday party on Sunday?
Eli: My Birfday!(Yes, that's how he says it)
Me: No, Eli, you already had your birthday this year.
Eli (a bit more earnestly): MY birfday!
Me: No, Eli, Sunday is Benjamin's birthday, not your's. Your birthday is in May.
Eli (putting his head down on his arm and sobbing in disappointment ) MY BIRFDAY!!
On Saturday: Eli, running up to my mom with a little tire in his hand that belongs on one of his trucks. It fit his finger perfectly. He said, "Marry me, Grandma?"
The other day, Eli was spitting milk bubbles at Cosette. She put her hands on her hips and said ''Eli, the Bible says you should not spit milk bubbles at your sister!" She has this habit of making the Bible say whatever is convenient to her at the time!!
