Background 1: Emma and I sitting at the table having breakfast. I am eating my cereal while Emma is eating her turkey and cheese sandwich. I know, not the typical breakfast fare but that is what she wanted and it did provide some protein, calcium, and carbs to get her through the morning.
Emma: Can I have a bite of your cereal, please?
I gave Emma the bite and then asked if she would like another one, which elicited the following response:
Emma: I just wanted one bite and I got my one bite so I am good.
What I can't capture in words is the way that her little hands were moving and waving all around as she was telling me that she was good. I wonder where she picked that one up?
Background 2: Emma sitting around in her sunglasses.
Emma: Mommy, these are my running sunglasses. You have running sunglasses too.
Me: Yes I do and I am going to wear them when I go for a run at work today.
Emma: Are you going to run at work today?
Me: I'm going to try unless something comes up.
Emma: What might come up at work?
Me: Well, sometimes there are things that my boss needs me to get done right away.
Emma: (With total sympathy for the working person as if she has had a job all her life) Yes, sometimes things do come up when we are at work.
I'm sure that I haven't done either of these conversations true justice but she really makes me laugh! Coming soon 5 random things about Joshua and 5 random things about Emma.
