It’s the last day of the month again. Enjoy.
Ellie: “I’m the Simoner”
Translation: “When we play Simon Says, I’m the one who tells everyone what to do.”
Ellie: “I see our infection!”
Translation: “I see our reflection.”
Zach: “I’abel, it’s okay. You need to calm down. Here. Take a deep breath like this. There. You feel better now?”
Ellie: “Whoa! When I’m dizzy, the floor moves! Watch!” She then started spinning again.
Me: “How many hands does Mommy have?”
Zach: “I know, I know! FOUR!!”
Ellie: “I’m going to the lavatory. ‘Lavatory’ is how you say ‘bathroom’ in Spanish.”
Me: “No, actually it’s just an old fashioned way to say ‘bathroom.'”
Ellie: “Fashion? Oooh, I’m so fashionable in the lavatory!”
Zach: “Mom, you forgot your clothes.”
Me: “No, I didn’t. I’m wearing my clothes.”
Zach, looking me up and down: “Oh … o-kay, Mom.” Then he laughed and shook his head. Obviously, he’d never seen me wear a miniskirt before. I know, once you hit thirty you’re not supposed to touch those things, but it was over my swimsuit!
Ellie, whispered at the breakfast table: “God, please help Dora to live again.”
Ellie: “Mommy, can I please dust your exercise machine? It really needs it.”
Zach: “I want to watch Thomas and friends. I want to make tracks to great destinations.”
Ellie: “Mommy, you’re the best mommy in the whole world, the best mommy on earth! Do we live on earth?”
