I would have no problem at all filling a daily blog with just crazy things my children say. And so far the youngest is the most quotable. Today, I was putting on her bathing suit on and then her clothes over them. This generally takes me two minutes because she is a very squirrely three year old. During those two minutes this conversation occurred:
Me: Let's get dressed for swimming.
Lucy: Is today Monday or Tuesday?
Me: No today's Thursday.
Lucy: Oh Man!
Lucy: I love Monday. Is Monday soon?
So, most people might be thinking what is so special about Monday? Monday is a good day for her; she has some classes she really enjoys at our Home School Co-op. I don't think that's why she said it. I think she has my random genes. She just says things as they occur to her. Things that would never occur to anyone. Like the next thing she said:
Lucy: Butera loves me.
Me: You mean Butera the grocery store?
Lucy: Yes, Butera loves me.
The problem is that she says so many crazy things, generally in a 2 minute period, that I can't possibly remember them all to tell Amy when she gets home. Point in fact, she said something very random indeed after the Butera comment, but now I have no idea what it was.
She just marched in the room chanting "Hello Pumpkin. Hello Pumpkin." I guess, that will have to do.
