Last Friday, hanging out with my twin nieces, I had such fun talking with them too... so funny how their minds work.
Sophia: Are you saying "Bears eat toes?"
Me: Yes - because I say that phrase every day of my life
Sophia: I thought so...
*****Madi: Sophia is so good at making friends. I'm just not good at anything! (that broke my heart!!!!)
Me: Madi - everyone is good at something!... Sophia, tell your sister what she's good at
Sophia: Oh Madi - you are sooooo good at learning
Me: See Madi - you are good at something! You are very smart! Not everyone is good at learning!
Sophia: But I can tell you TONS of things she's not good at.
Me: Sophia, want me to tell you what you're not good at? Knowing when to stop talking! (said with a smile)
*****Sophia: Look Aunt Bec! (pointing to her front tooth) Its loose & is going to come out anyday!
Me: Hey - I lost a tooth last week myself! (I told her about my crown falling off)
Sophia: What did the tooth fairy give you for it?
Madi: I want to go to Build a Bear. (they got gift certificates for their birthday)
Me: ME TOO! I want to make a bear.
Sophia: What kind of bear would you make?
Me: A knitting, roller skating, reading Princess Bear!!!!
Sophia: So it could have skates on its feet, a knitting needle in one hand, a book in the other & a tiara on its head!
Me: Doesnt that sound like the coolest bear EVER?
Madi: umm.... no....
******Madi: Where's your babies?
Me: Right here (I was holding Bruno & Sydney was lying next to me)
Madi: No! you're REAL babies... didnt you ever have any?
Me: (just shaking my head no... this conversation could go wrong quick)
Sophia: You mean you're a grown up & God didnt give you any babies?
Me: I didnt have any babies of my own, but I have lots of babies to love on.
Sophia: So God didnt give you babies so you could love ME more?
Me: That's exactly it
Sophia: Ahhh.... (Really thinking about it)....that's so nice of God
....You just never know what a converation will hold with a 6 yr old...
