Just some memorable things that have happened lately:
Mia tends to talk in her sleep. The other night she sat up and yelled -
Daddy from the family room: Yes?
Mia: Did Peter Piper really pick a giant pack of pickled peppers?
Daddy laughing: Uh... Yes. Now go to bed.
I was about to leave my mother's house when Mia stopped and said...
Mia: Mom? How do you get gum out of your belly button?
Me: What? How did you get gum there?
Mia: I put it there.
Me: But why?
Mia: Because I didn't see a garbage.
Me: But you know where Grandma's garbage is. You could have come and thrown it away there.
Mia: I know and I wanted to, but I forgot about it and then it got really sticky so I tried to get it out by myself, but then it got smeared on my belly and on my shirt, so then I tried to hide it from you because I didn't want to get in trouble. But now... I need help.
(just a little hint, gum doesn't come out of belly buttons.)
Mia kept talking to us when she should have been going to sleep.
Me: Mia. I don't want to hear anything else from you. You eed to close your mouth and go to sleep.
Mia: Mommy? Just one more question.
Me: sigh... What?
Mia: Did you get the end of the story I told you?
Me: (Look confused) What story?
Mia: (Grumble) You mean you don't remember? Well let me tell you. There once lived three bears. One was born in a candy store and all he could say was Goody goody gumdrops...
(On she went for five minutes telling a silly joke that know she has never told me before.... WORLDS BIGGEST STALL)
