"Be Bwerry Quiet, Mommy. Ok?" - Emma

After lunch I was clearing the table when I heard, "Mommy! I need to go potty" "K, PC! go to the bathroom then!" two minutes later, "Mommy, I peed on my pants and my underwear and the floor." "Ok, just clean it up - use toilet paper." I instructed. "But I can't! it melted on my pants."

As I write this, sitting on the floor in front of my little old computer, Emma has been playing 'meeting' by herself behind me (the other kids are still all napping). She just finished raiding Dolly's bible case for hats. The whole time singing various lines from an assortment of hymns. "Oh, yes, oh yes, dare's sdumpding more, trust and obey! Yes Jesus wub me bor duh Bible dells me so - Jesus ded caa ur neh on deh right side... no sdumpding, sdumping more!" Then she became very quiet, said, "Shhhh! deh baby's sweeping!", selected just the right hat and carefully put it on my head. "Be bwerry quiet, mommy. Ok? I gunna be wite bwack." and she ran off to the playroom for a toy bottle for her baby and my own bible case for me. I had moved while she was gone, and the hat slipped off a bit. "Don't Mommy! oo need to hab ur at on pwroperwy!"

This morning in the car PC was singing, "Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes, oh yes" Dolly interrupted him, "No, PC! That's not how it goes! You're supposed to say, 'Oh yes, oh yes, there's something more. Yes, there really is, yes, oh yes, there's something, something more'" I had to smile since I've never heard the 'yes, there really is' version before.

  1. That's just great :) You do such a good job of recording the way they say everything.
