Here we are! (Quick Takes, February 7)


Me:  "Three-year-old, please help me sweep the floor."

Three-year-old:  "Who's coming over?"


Me (offering two-year-old a bit of candied ginger):  "Would you like to try some?  It's good for your tummy."

Two-year-old (shoving the ginger into her belly button):  "Here you go, tummy!"


Three-year-old (closing the dishwasher door):  "I do ALL your work for you, Mommy!"

One can dream...


Two-year-old (pausing the screamfest): "I upset!  I upset!"

Um, we figured that one out-- and so has the entire church.


Me: "Two-year-old, what kind of cake would you like for your birthday?"

Two-year-old:  "Orange!"

Three-year-old:  "I'm sorry, Two-year-old.  We don't have any oranges.  We just have onions.  It has to be an onion cake."


Three-year-old is currently obsessed with the art-themed storybook Katie Meets the Impressionists-- and so of course, I recommend it!  (Yay, she's chatting to nineteenth-century portraits!  Mickey Mouse, beware.)  We definitely plan to collect the other books in this series.


Me:  "...You'll understand this better when you're driving.  When will you learn to drive?"

Three-year-old:  "Ten."

Me:  "You'll drive when you're ten years old?"

Three-year-old:  "Yes!  And I want a purple car."

Enjoy your weekend!


  1. Holy cow, you're back! I've missed you! :-)

    Um, I can't wait until Three Year-Old has her purple car! She's just too cute! LOVED reading this!

  2. I can't wait for the Onion Cake.
    Glad you're back - POST MORE!!

    Have a great one
