Quotable Quotes

Addie’s latest: (March/April 2009)

While doing her hair “mommy you’re ruining my curls!”

“Mommy…does Minnie Mouse go to time out?”

“Mom I’m hungry.” “Do you want some yogurt?” “No…I want some real food. I want a sucker.”

Looking at a picture of Kenny in front of the Coliseum in Rome… “there’s my daddy at his office.”

“I’m not being Ellie’s sister because her feathers are in a bunch.” (must be from their favorite show Little Bear?)

“Mommy I need another popsicle.” “You haven’t finished that one yet.” “I can’t … it’s too cold. I need a new one.”

“Mommy…I need to tell you something…don’t smile, don’t laugh, don’t get mad.” (I don’t even remember what she needed to tell me…I was too amused by the way she started the sentence to pay attention :)

Ellie’s latest: (March/April 2009)

“Mom, remember when I was little and we sat around all day eating Wheat Thins? Remember that mom?” (I don’t remember this, but I’m not denying it)

“Mom – I named this bear Shiver Anatillia China.” (say that three times fast)

“Mom…why do those tortilla shells taste different?” “They’re fat free.” “Fat free is so gross.”

When my mom was visiting for Easter Ellie smelled her arm and said, “mmm…you smell good grandma…like Utah. I smell like San Diego.” Then she smelled her again…”yup….Utah.”

“Mom, what if something was wrong with our house – like if it was backwards and you couldn’t get in?”

“I have a tummy ache and it hurts when I wash my hands.”

“Try this mom. It’s hot noodle coconut soup with root beer.”

After getting her haircut: “Mom – Am I still 5 now that my hair is short?”

Talking to Addison: “Say it Add…you love ice cream more than me.”

xoxo, Erin

  4. I love this so much Erin. It is the real purpose for blogging if you ask me.

    How do you do it though? Do you honestly carry around a pen and paper or do you you have a file for a brain that never forgets anything?

    I also agree that “Fat Free is gross”! Glad you have a record of their cute talk….makes me miss them both even more. :(
