Emma makes us laugh so much with the things she says and the words she uses. For instance, the other day, she found one of her Valentine's Day cookies from a friend at school sitting on the counter and then proceeded to tell me later "I noticed that cookie but I'm not going to eat it now." I am not sure what I was more impressed by, the use of the word "noticed" or the fact that she didn't beg for the cookie. Anyhow, here are a few more comments from Emma that I want to preserve for future generations whether she likes it or not and whether they like it or not!
- Emma loves to play games (mostly games that she has made up). The other night, she was passing out game pieces to Brad and I and told us "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit". That one can be attributed to her teacher, Mrs. Michelle.
- On the way home from the grocery store the other day, she started talking about computers and told me "I call a computer, a puner; I'm just being silly."
- "When I was little before Bubby was here, I used to yell 'Bubby, where are you?'. I always wanted a Bubby named Josh." *Note - This certainly never happened before Josh was born but I am so happy that she loves her little brother so much.
- A couple of weeks ago, she wanted me to stay with her when it was time for bed. I told her that I wasn't going to stay and she responded "but I very love you" (I still didn't stay).
- We toured a potential school last week; it was a school that I had taken Emma to in the fall to see the musical Seussical, which I thought she had enjoyed. I guess she didn't really care for the musical because she told Brad the other night when he was tucking her in "Tell Mommy I really liked the new school but I don't want to go see the elephant play again because I didn't like when the monkeys came out." The next afternoon, I asked her about the play; she turned to Brad and said "TELL MOMMY I DON'T WANT TO GO TO SEE HORTON AGAIN." The tone was along the lines of, I already gave you this message to deliver; why didn't you tell her?
In closing, just in case you weren't certain, it is a rhino-oceros and not a rhinoceros.
