Me: “Em, no blankets on the potty. Take it off.”
Emmy: “But I’m cooooold.”
Me: “But you’ll get pee on it. Take it off.”
Emmy: “Ooooooooh. Maybe poop even?”
Context: On the Jordan Jesse Go podcast they are having a competition they’ve named “The King of the Children Contest”, where listeners describe things they talk about on the show to their kids and have them draw pictures of it to send in. Anyway:
Me: Oh shoot, I forgot to have Emmy enter The King of the Children Contest.
*I describe the contest*
Me: Emmy, you wanna be The King of the Children, right?
Emmy: No, I’m going to be corn!
(That’s what she’s going as for Halloween.)
Last night we climbed into bed with two books to read: Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? and Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?
Emmy: I want you to read this one. *holds up the Polar Bear one* No, I want to read it to you.
Me: Oh, you’re going to read me the Polar Bear book? Alright.
Emmy: *Opens to the title page* There are words in this book!
I was telling her to go to sleep last night, and she said she wanted to be held. So I picked her up and rocked her back and forth a little, and told her to close her eyes and go to sleep. After about a minute, she whispered softly:
“I’m still a little awake.”
Me: “Alright, then stop talking and go to sleep.”
A minute or so later…
“I’m still a little bit awake. I’m closing my eyes.”
