"Mom, can C (4 yr old) stay down here with me for her quiet time?" the 8 yr old asks. "Sure but she has to stay with you and you two play nicely together." I respond. "We will."

Today’s Quotes From the Three Year Old

At lunch with her eyes closed: “Mom, Can you see me?”

At bedtime, trying to take her shirt off all by herself: “My arm is stuck!” Me: “Why don’t you pull your shirt over your head?” Her response: “No! That is too EASY!”
