I thought Ali was coming down with a cold, but then she sounded a lot better. I asked her, "What happened to your snoggly nose??"
"I think my snoggly went to heaven. It died."
Her snoggly nose isn't the only thing that's been dying around here. She told me Thursday, "All my party friends (imaginary friends) died today."
"Really? What happened?"
"They all got sick and went to heaven."
Then, yesterday, she referenced one of her party friends.
"But I thought they all died?"
"Yes, but they're not dead anymore. They're back from heaven."
When we kept Radford last week, he and Ali had some riveting conversations. My favorite was the following:
"Radford, what's your favorite color?"
"What's your other favorite color?"
"Mommy, Radford cracks me up!!! His favorite color is yellow and his second favorite color is yellow too!!"
"Radford, what's your third favorite color?"
"Mommy, his favorite color is yellow, his second favorite color is yellow, and his third favorite color is blue!! Isn't that silly?!?!?"
Ali is often creative with her after-bedtime-callbacks. Only once has she ever done the typical-kid "I'm Thirsty!!".
My favorite thus far happened last week.
Chris goes in... "What, baby?"
"Daddy, my bum is too big!!!"
Another day, Ali started this conversation randomly in the car:
"What is it called when you talk with your mouth but you don’t move?"
"You mean a ventriloquist?"
"No, that's not it… what is it called when you talk with your mouth but you don’t move?"
"A Ventriloquist! They do puppets. They can talk without moving their mouth."
"No!! What is it called when you talk and DO move your mouth, but you can’t move anything else?"
"Oh! You mean someone that is Paralyzed!"
"Yes!! That's it, Mommy!."
"Who were you talking to about people being paralyzed??"
"I don’t know. I think I made it up."
