Conversations with Sadie

Sadie has been full of unintentionally hilarious comments lately.  Like when she told me that she was "a little bit jealous" that my hair is getting white, because Elsa's hair is almost white and she wants hair like that.

And then there was this.

"So Mommy, you're birthday is soon.  Wow.  I bet there are going to be A LOT of candles on your birthday cake."

Or my personal favorite...

Sadie:  "Mommy is the baby this big?"  (makes big hand motion)
Me:  "Nope.  The babies is still teeny tiny.  Like a kidney bean."
Sadie:  "Mommy, if the baby is so little why is your tummy already so big?"

Then there was the conversation that had both Paul and I chuckling the other day as we unloaded the kids from the car.

Sadie:  "Don't forget about me! Don't forget about me."
Paul:  "We're not going to forget about you."
Me:  "We've never forgotten anyone, anywhere."
Sadie:  "There was that one time."
Me:  "No there wasn't.  We have never left anyone anywhere."
Sadie:  "With Maggie."
Me: "No, you thought we'd forgotten Maggie when we were going to Disney World, but she was already in the car with Daddy."
Sadie: (gasps)  "So we forgot Maggie and Daddy?"
Me:  "No!  We didn't forget anyone!"

And that is a glance at the conversations that I have during the day while Paul is at school.

 Now to run downstairs where Maggie has come up with an approximation of a sentence to use during therapy.  Her new favorite phrase:  "I oon't aaant ooo!"  lets everyone know she doesn't want to put together a puzzle, or do anything other than pretend to be a mermaid right now!


  1. That's not an approximation of a sentence. It I'd a sentence, albeit with some articulation problems.

  2. I guess I should have said word approximations!

  3. Ha! Wouldn't you know it, the first sentence she puts together is the equivalent of no. But I love it, because she is now just not ignoring a request and going about her business, but actually acknowledging her understanding but refusal of it, and that is progress! Good job, Mae!

I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
