"It's amazing, like a chrysalis". What?! You're 4! I actually had to look it up to remember what a chrysalis was. It's amazing what she picks up! If you're like me, you can read up on a chrysalis here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pupa#Chrysalis
"Eeew, please stop that". Overheard while Luke kissed me good by.
"It was a kiss, and kissing means love". Josie on her friend Max, who kissed her over a month ago (and she's still talking about it).
"I LOVE SHOES"!!!!
"Stop it Marie, stop kicking me. Mom, Marie is being MEAN"! Josie tattles now, a lot.
"My tummy hurts, I need something to make it feel better. Something like jelly beans".
"I have gloves now, so I am a real gardener!" We actually found her size gardening gloves at WalMart, not only do they fit but they are purple and have Dora the Explorer on them. They are the most awesome gardening gloves that ever were.
"Mickey is my favorite friend". Overheard while she was happy with my younger brother.
"I called him, and called him! I called him six times, why didn't he answer his phone. I AM SO MAD! I'm going to call him and ask him why he won't answer his phone". Just let that last sentence sink in. This was overheard while she was mad at Mickey. She never got hold of him that morning, and when she finally did get him in the afternoon she was so mad about his not answering in the morning she called him a Dirty Hippie and hung up on him. I think he felt bad.
"Go pour yourself some wine from the frig-i-gator!" When Josie whines (it happens a lot) Luke and I tease her and tell her we'll get her a cup to pour that "wine" out in. She now uses this response, but, it gets her to stop whining. Mostly because she's annoyed and starts yelling.
"Mom, do not sing your songs, they are not funny. They are embarrassing." She told me this last night when I was singing her a silly song. I felt a little silly....
"You know what? We don't buy enough of jelly beans".
