At one of our first garage sales of the season:
“Oh! I love this store!”
My Mom: Ellen, do you want to go for a walk?
Ellen: No! You go pop your tags over there!
My Mom: …
Referencing her favorite song these days:
“Mom? I belong with you, okay?”
In the car with Mike:
“Daddy! Go faster!”
Mike obliges…of course.
“You crazy, daddy!”
I have to drain the tub in order to get Ellen out of the bath – otherwise she will stay all night. After draining the other night, she looked around her and said, “I not taking a bath anymore.”
My Mom: (eating carrots) What’s up, doc?
Ellen: (repeating) What’s up, cock?
Chatting with my mom:
“Do you like boobies, Mima? Do you like Geepy’s (my dad) boobies?”
Offering me a plastic cup with felt red peppers inside:
“The Blood of Christ.”
While changing her diaper the other morning:
“I don’t understand you, mom.”
After asking for lipstick – I pretend obliged.
“Now I have a moustache just like mommy!”
