(While gluing and cutting during an art project)
Aria: Mommy, do you think this could be great?
(Aria and I were playing house. I was the baby and she was the mommy.)
Aria: I promise I love you baby!
Aria: Let's read some books for my brain
Me: Do you want raspberries, blueberries or watermelon with lunch?
Aria: maybe strawberries
Aria: Are you thinking what I'm thinking? I'm thinking that my tummy is hungry!
(Baba asked Aria if she loved baba)
Aria: Yes, but I love momma best!
Aria: Yeah, I'm pretty good at dancing.
(After a time out)
Aria: But mommy I'm a girl, only boys get a time out!
Me: Wow, is that the car you built?
Aria: No, it's the prettiest house you've ever seen!
(She had fallen asleep in the car and woke up while I carried her inside and had clearly been dreaming because she groggily said this)
Aria: I'm flapping my wings mommy.
(Aria was all tucked into bed and I thought she was asleep until she called out to me)
Aria: mommy, I have a dea (an idea) if you cut my feet off I can have a tail.
I asked again because I didn't think I understood her correctly, then she repeated,
Aria: if you cut off my feet I can have a mermaid tail!
(We were playing house and Aria went to ring the doorbell)
Aria: ding bell
Aria: Dad, I don't want coffee because I have a cough
Aria: Mom, it's past my bedtime. It's WAY past my bedtime.
(while looking out the window during our flight to Colorado to visit Nana and Papa)
Aria: Mommy where is the Colorado door?
(At the airport)
Aria: It's a suitcase party!
Aria: Want me to read you this book? First I need to find where to start. I always start with once upon a time.
