Me [reading from a book about animal sounds]: What does a rooster say?
Grace [with a big grin on her face]: Horton hears a Who! [laughs, covering her mouth] I just being silly, Mommy. It's really "cock-a-doodle-doo!"
And when Grace says "being silly," it usually comes out more like "be-yun selly."
An actual conversation overheard in our kitchen last night…
Robert: If you eat all your eggs, you’ll turn into a true princess!
Robert [matter-of-factly]: That’s how I turned into a true princess.
Grace [filled with wonder]: You’re a true princess?!?
Robert [matter-of-factly]: Yes.
Grace [skeptical]: Where’s yur spinnin’ dress?
Robert [matter-of-factly]: It’s my shirt.
It worked...Grace finished eating her eggs!
