We've been having quite the cold snap in Alabama. The coldest it's been for the longest period of time in 25 YEARS. Ali, however, is proving to have her Daddy's thermostat.
I was trying to get her coat on her, and explained, "It's F-F-F-F-FREEEEEEZING outside!!!"
She answered, "It's not f-f-f-f-freezing. It's just a little cold."
I was going through the drive-thru at CVS, and she was wanting me to hurry up. I said "Okay, I've just gotta leave my prescription. "
She got all worried and said, "Don't LEAVE it!!! It will be lost!!!"
I was reminding Ali, "When you need to poo poo, be sure to tell me."
Ali: "Ok. When YOU need to poo poo, I will tell YOU."
(Then she gets this dramatic desperate voice that she MIGHT have heard me use to her), "Hold it, Mommy, Hold it!!! Don't tee tee in your panties!!!!!"
Ali woke up from her nap one day laughing hysterically. I went upstairs, and I asked her what she was laughing about.
"I was laughing at Amanda's mean girls at her house. They have a lot of do's."
(Amanda - what have you been telling her about Ashley??!!)
Ali ran out of her favorite thing, PEZ. She asked for more, and I said, "You ate them all".
Ali: "No I didn't."
Me (knowing there were more in the pantry but hoping she didn't know that): "Yes you did - remember there were two packs on the kitchen table and you ate them?"
Ali: "But can I have some from the...from the...food door?"
Chris was getting her in the car, and I heard the following conversation:
Ali: "I scratched you."
Chris: "That's okay, it was an accident."
Ali: "No it wasn't."
The other day, the three of us were eating dinner at the table. Ali needed to go tee-tee. She got up from her chair, walked over to my chair, got right in my face, eye to eye, and said in this seriously grave voice, "Please don't eat my supper while I'm gone, Mommy."
Then, she walked purposefully over to Chris, got right in his face, eye to eye, and said, "Please don't eat my supper while I'm gone, Daddy."
