Ana to Wes, “Because you are such a kind person, I think you will let me ride in the car with the windows down.” How could he refuse after being called “kind”? He couldn’t, of course.
Emma to me, when I called her by name, “No, I’m Pastor Wes.” From pretending to be a princess to being Papi — Em has a wide range of roles at the ready.
Ana to Emma, “Emma, did you know that this part of the seatbelt is hot after being in the sun?” Emma to Ana, “I KNOW, ANA! I KNOW EVERYTHING!” Ana to Emma, “Yes, but do you know the difference between a sheep and a cow?” Stumped silence from Emma, likely because that sheep/cow topic was so out of left field…
Emma to me, “Girl cows make milk, and boy cows make hamburgers.” When she’s right, she’s right.
Ana, when asked if she was the big sister, “Yes, I am the big sister, but Emma has bigger feet than me.” That’s right — learn how to throw your sister under the bus early on…
Emma to me, “Mmmm… you smell tasty!” And now, we’re on the alert to make sure Emma doesn’t sneak off to eat a stick of Icy Hot.
Ana to me, “Well, if I had a brother, I would have to marry him.” Then it’s probably a good thing that she doesn’t have a brother.
Hope your week is going great!
