I like that I have the privilege of staying home with my little people-for a lot of reasons. One, is that I get to hear them verbalize the things floating around their little developing brains. I’ve got to find a way to document the things they say. We’re back from a week at the beach-so I can only remember one thing-hahaha. For now-this is my documentation system. : )
“To my mom and dad, if they’re out there somewhere, I’d like to say thank you for all your support.” -Cate, to audience of 10 parents in small class room. After 10 minute play at the end of drama camp.
“Bessert”- how Rosie says “dessert.”
“Bonut”- how Emmett says donut.
“Mote”-how Cate, age 1, said “remote” and now part of the family lingo.
“swishers”- what Rosie calls windshield wipers.
“Actually, I’m not a big fan of chocolate sprinkles.” Cate, age 6, while ordering a sundae.
Not so much one word/sentence-but Emmett is intent on marrying Cate. Cate’s not really digging the idea-so, Emmett’s idea is to sneak into her room and marry her in the middle of the night. Emmett’s whispered to me more than once that he loves Cate. Cate, in the beginning, warned me that she was “pretty sure Emmett” was “in love with her.” This year 2016, so Emmett is 4 Cate is 7.
“Mommy! I’m going to get married in 3 weeks!” Me: “Oh yeah, to who?” Cate: “I haven’t found anyone yet.”
