These are the Tiny Talks of my 3 1/2-year-old “big” girl, Bella. For more Tiny Talks, head over to Mary’s at Not Before 7
I was reading a book to Bella that talks about being happy, sad, mad, etc.
Mommy: What makes you happy, Bella?
Mommy: (laughing) Ok…what makes you sad?
Bella: Eggs! (knows she’s being silly!)
Mommy: (???) What makes you mad?
Bella heard a thunder outside…
Bella: Mommy, did you hear that? It’s a flounder!
After reading what I thought an “odd” book that we checked out from the library to Bella,
Mommy: Hmm…I didn’t really care for that book.
Bella: It’s ok (sighs). We can just return it to the library if you don’t like it.
Mommy: Oh, ok.
Who’s the mother and who’s the child here?
Bella loves putting stickers on her baby sister (a.k.a. my pregnant belly) these days and she checks on them from time to time to make sure they are still there. We’re at her friend’s house one morning…
Bella: Let me show you the stickers on my baby sister! (suddenly lifts my shirt all the way up to reveal my belly in front of LOTS of people)
I guess I need to have a talk about what’s appropriate and what’s not? :-)
