Getting through the day, one cup at a time.

In the mind…

on June 27, 2012

…of a 3 (almost 4) year old.

Ally: Kira’s favourite is cheese.

Phil: (begins listing different types of cheese) cheddar, mozzarella, gouda, feta, camembert…

Ally:  Whatchyou talkin’ about?!?! You’re just making up words.


On asking Ally if she has to go to the bathroom.

Mommy: ‘Cause you look like you have to poop.

Ally: Or maybe these pants make me look like I have to poop!


We’re playing knifey-spooney at the table. For those of you who don’t know, it’s a Simpsons reference. The first banter is the quote.

Mommy: THIS is a knife. (holds up a spoon)

Ally: No, that’s a spoon.

Mommy: (in a terrible Australian accent) I see you’ve played knifey-spooney befORE!

Ally: THIS is a knife! (holds up a spoon)

Mommy: No, that’s a spoon.

Ally: NO, it’s a knife! Hahahahahaha!


Ally and I were recently talking about life during Kira’s nap. We got on the topic of babies when Ally comes up with this gem:

Ally: We’re running out of babies.

Mommy: What do you mean?

Ally: In the world – we’re running out of babies!

Mommy: What are you talking about?? We’re not running out of babies!

Ally: Well you know how people grow up and then they’re adults and then they have babies?

Mommy: Yeah…

Ally: Well then the babies all grow up too fast and WHERE DID THE TIME GO?!?!?!?!?!

Can you tell I’ve been lamenting how close their birthdays are?

PS There are only three more days in the Great Outdoors Photo Challenge. Remember that you can submit as many as THREE photos.
