Linking up with Rosie today to share a smattering of things our favorite 2 1/2 year-old has voiced recently:
While I was happily clutching a women’s red/blue/white flannel shirt at my favorite thrift store:
Evie rather matter of factly: Dat’s Dada’s shirt.
Cue Audrey crying in the background…
Evie: Is Audrey sad?
Me: Yes, she’s sad.
Evie: She need a Band-Aid on her face.
To our waiter wearing an all black uniform:
Evie: “Thank you, Fadder! Thank you, Fadder for bringing Mama’s water and Dada’s wine!”
In a less-than-stellar moment of parenting combined with selective hearing on Evie’s part:
Me: If you aren’t going to listen, then I will treat you like a baby.
Evie: Evie have a treat?
Evie: What is dat?
Me: That’s Momma’s shampoo.
Evie: Evie poop?!
Me: (Hastily trying to nip the poop tangent immediately in the bud) No! That’s a bottle of shampoo.
To the male clerk checking us out at Walgreens:
Evie: Thank you, nice yady*!
*Thankfully I don’t think he registered the “L” swapped out for “Y”!
After sneaking several cereal puffs from Audrey’s tray:
Me: Evie, it makes Audrey sad when you take her food and it makes momma sad to see you do that.
Evie: It makes Evie..happy!
