Carnival of Bagel Quotes
I was sifting through a bunch of old emails, and came across a bunch of quotes I'd saved by my now-8 year old daughter, "Bagel". :)
December 2003, age 4.5
"I can't get it. It makes my brains all sweaty."
(5 minutes later) "Look! My brains aren't all sweaty anymore!"
"Mommy - I love my daddy's $10 shoes! I LOVE them!" (quote from the book Caps For Sale, I think)
"I need some salad to help me relax."
In the car on the way to preschool she said, "Mommy, my Madeline doll is broken." I said, it is?
She said, "Yeah, it needs batteries."
Honey, your Madeline doll doesn't need batteries.
"Then how am I going to get it to walk and talk?"
I chuckled and said, she doesn't really do those things - you have to use your imagination and pretend.
"Mommy, can I pretend she has batteries?"
March 2004, almost 5
"I'm not ready to be a grownup. I'm not ready to be an adult. It's not fair. Mommy's too short."
"Thanks, Mom, I really appreciate that." (an unexpected flash of adult thinking)
In the car on the way home from delivering shalach manos-
"Mom, do you know how much I love you?"
"I'm NOT a jelly bean. Don't call me jelly bean!"
"I wish I had a baby sister I REALLY want a baby sister and I want to name her (Bagel) and she can have a haircut like me and..."
"Mom, do you like rubber chickens?"
"I'm not a kitty - I'm just a human."
April 2004 - Bagel turns 5 this month! - Salamander is 18 months...
"Salamander's my brother. He doesn't know very much."
"I could teach him to fly a kite. But I'll need to get a kite first."
