Conversations with Sadie
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!
