Let's Hide!

Mom: Where you going to hide? You can't hide in the bedrooms, and not in the closets.

Seth: Let's hide in the walls!

Indisputable Proof

Elliana was setting the table and set out a big spoon for herself. I asked her if she would rather have a smaller spoon. Without a word, she picked up the spoon, looked at me, opened her mouth wide, and stuck the whole spoon inside.

Now who can argue with that?

I thought they only did this as teenagers!

Elliana (almost 5) and I were on a hayride, and I put my arm around her and asked, "Are you having fun?" She just sat there and said, "Well I was."

I took my arm back and laughed, and then she said, "Now I'm having fun!"
I guess mom can take a hint.

Tons and Tons and Lots

Elliana(almost 5): There are tons and tons and tons and tons and tons and tons and tons and lots.

Mom: (suppressing laughter) Tons and tons and lots?
Elliana: Yes, because there was more than the last "tons," and "lots" is the amount that there was more.
