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
We promised Bella a long time ago that she can have gum when she turns 4, which seemed quite far away then. She’s apparently very excited about the prospect of having a gum on her birthday and can’t stop talking about it. When she meets people who ask her how old she is, she answers:
Bella: I’m three. And when I’m four, I can have gum!!! (jumping up and down!)
Also, she randomly checks the status of gum stock at our house by asking,
Bella: Mommy, do we still have gum left?
Her birthday is not until November! Hey, at least her birthday present this year will be cheap….a pack of gums! :-)
In the bath with all of her princess Barbie dolls….
Bella: Reach and pull, kick kick kick, Ariel! Big breath and blow bubbles. (holding her in her arms) Don’t be scared, I won’t let you go. You are safe.
Obviously this swimming lesson is paying off?
One morning, sleeping Bella missed seeing Daddy off.
Bella: Where’s Daddy?
Mommy: He went to work, honey.
Bella: When I get bigger, I’m going to go to work!
Not to worry, baby. Your time will come before you know it!
Mommy: Time to eat lunch, Bella
Bella: Shhh….I’m putting my bear to bed for her nap.
I think somebody is ready to be a Mommy? :-)
