Last night at dinner Abbie was wiggling around so much that it was making Dan crazy. Here is the conversation:
Dan: Abbie Sit down.
Abbie: but I don't want to.
Dan: Sit down.
Abbie: Why? it is fun to sit up here. (sitting on the back of the chair)
Dan: Sit down, or you will fall and crack your head open.
Abbie: Will a nut come out?
Yes, she thinks her head is full of nuts. Maybe that is because I am always telling her she is nuts. Who needs brains when you have personality right?
At the grocery store the other day, we had the produce guy laughing from a conversation we were having by the bulk candy. Here is a snippet:
Abbie: is that candy!?
mom: Yes, don't touch it.
Abbie: but I want to. I want some candy.
Mom: Candy isn't good for our bodies, our bodies don't want us to eat candy.
Abbie: Mine does. My body loves candy.
Mom: (not really paying attention) Okay, but don't touch it. We don't need candy and we aren't going to buy any so please stop asking. Would you like a banana?
Abbie: My body says it NEEDS candy not a banana.
So like a good mother, I bought her some candy AND a banana. The banana is still on the counter, the candy is gone. I guess she was right, her body did NEED that candy.
It is funny to think that just 2 years ago, we were worried about her speech delay...
