While tapping her feet, My Four Year Old said, “I’m trying to take a nap, but first I have to show you this funky rhythm.”
Me: “It’s okay, don’t get excited!”
My Four Year Old: “I’m not getting excited, I’m just freaking out.”
We were watching a cartoon and the characters split into two parties, some taking a desert path and some trying the jungle path. I asked My Four Year Old which path she would take. Without hesitation she answered.
“The jungle path of course.”
“Why would you pick the jungle path?” I asked.
“Because it has more air.” she said, matter of factly.
“It has more air?” I asked, confused.
“Yes, because of the trees. Daddy, trees make air.”
Me: “Okay, are you ready for your bath?”
My Four Year Old: “No, I don’t need a bath. Good try though!”
My Four Year Old: “Daddy, when is your birthday?”
Me: “April 18th.”
Her: “When is that?”
Me: “In about three months.”
Her: “Will there be noise makers at your party? I love noise makers.”
Her: “Are you going to have a bounce house?”
Me: “Probably not.”
Her: “Hmmmmm. Will you be there?”
My Four Year Old and I were hiding under a blanket, a foot away from my Mom (aka Morna) who was lying in the same bed as us. We were engaged in a game of hide and seek.
My Four Year Old started giggling. This made me start giggling. Then she laughed more, which made me laugh even more.
“Be quiet!” she said, “So Morna won’t find us.”
“You think if we’re quiet she won’t find us?” I asked. She nodded emphatically. Then, after a few seconds, she began to giggle. And I began to giggle. Then, I started singing a bad rendition of a song from Mary Poppins.
“I Love To Laugh! Ha ha ha ha! Laughing filled with glee! And the more I laugh! Ha ha ha ha! The more I’m a merrier me!”
At this My Four Year Old said in a very serious voice, “Daddy! There is no singing, no laughing, and NO FLYING in Hide and Seek!”
