I’m still getting used to the fact that my daughter is actually talking now. It seems like only yesterday, when all she spoke was gibberish. Now she’s actually constructing full sentences, and even telling me stories.
What really blows me away, is how she views everything around her. If I could only see the world through her little eyes, every single day would be an adventure, and the little things in life, wouldn’t seem so little.
She can take something as simple as washing the car and turn it into an interesting, and somewhat humorous story.
This is the conversation we had on the way to the store today…….
Z: “Nice and clean car. We washed car de other day. It was yucky. We washed it wish soap. I washed the windows, now I can see the tree’s growing, and the grass growing, and the road growing……….. We sucked out the dirt too. Clean car make Daddy happy. Mommy and Z messy. I found a cheerio, huh Momma?”
Me: “Yes you did. It was yucky though, so we threw it away didn’t we?”
Z: “Yep! 1, 2, 3 cheerios.”
Me: “I thought you only found 1 cheerio?”
Z: “No, 1, 2, 3 cheerios.”
Me: “You found 3 cheerios?”
Me: “Did you throw them all away?”
Me: “Did you eat them Z?”
Note to self: Vacuum first before I ask for her help next time.
