cc: Hey mom?
me: Yes baby.
cc: Baby boy looks so different now than when he was born.
me: You think so?
cc: Yeah, he looks kinda normal.
(It was nearing time for bed when I asked CC to return the staplers she was playing with back to the desk)
me: Let’s go ahead and put those away, so we can get ready for bed.
cc: (talking to staplers) Well guys, I guess there won’t be a stapler convention tonight.
me: Aghhhhhhhh! LOL!
(CC knew I had not been feeling well for a few days and decided she wanted to pray for me at bedtime)
cc: And Lord, we know that mom hasn’t been feeling well. So, we just ask that you would heal here BIG body.
me & dad: (in the middle of the prayer) LOL!
cc: What’s so funny guys?
me: Sorry, you can continue.
cc: If you could just make her big body feel better she will be all better. And we just thank you for that Lord.
Cc: Mom, I want you to do your hair.
Me: Really? Why?
Cc: Because you are looking dry and you need to moisturize. You don’t need to be going outside looking dry like that.
Me: Lol, ok baby. (Funny thing is, my hair did lack moisture at the time. But man, who wants to be told by their 4 year old that they look “whack”? Lol!)
(It was bed time and CC tried all she could to keep from sleeping in her bed)
Cc: Mom and Dad, do you guys want to sleep in my room tonight? Not like a camp-out or anything, but just so we can all be together.
Dad: Not tonight baby.
Cc: Can you just sleep in here then dad?
Dad: No baby
Cc: Can I sleep in you and mom’s bed?
Cc: Can I sleep on the floor in your room?
Cc: Can I sleep in the living room?
Cc: Well dad, I don’t know what else to tell you.
Dad: I know. Now good night.
Cc: Mom, I’m so sorry that you had to talk to me so much today.
Me: I don’t mind talking if it’s necessary.
Cc: Well, maybe tomorrow we can try for a better tone.
Me: (too tired to laugh for this was after bath time. All I could do was look at her as she continued to talk)
Cc: You know, I was reading this article the other day talking about how adults talk loud to their children, and I don’t really like that.
Me: (again, too tired to laugh. She was so serious.)
Cc: Mom, who fed you when you were a baby?
Me: My mom.
Cc: Did she breastfeed you, or did you drink from a bottle?
Me: A bottle.
Cc: Your mom didn’t breastfeed you at all?
Cc: Not even a little bit?
Cc: She doesn’t have breasts?
Me: LOL!!! Yes, she does.
