Leila Love

The 1st time “y’all” was overheard in a sentence, “Do you want to do these stickers y’all?”

Leila: “Is this the race?” Mommy: “Yes.” Leila: “Where are all the people cheering?”

“Let’s try out the new cool move on the monkey bars!”

“I’m not going to tell you, but it’s hiding over here.”

“This is going to be a dessert restaurant, not a nutritious restaurant.”

“Mommy I have an idea of where to tie this balloon in our house. Tie it on one of our noor-dobs.”

Showing Mommy the food she prepared at the Children Museum of Houston’s Mexico exhibit, “Tex-Mex here you go!” (Sometime later we were looking at a map, which beget a conversation about Africa. She remarked about the Africa exhibit at the Children’s Museum. I told her it wasn’t Africa. “Oh yeah, it’s Tex-Mex.”)

A little while later when Mommy asked if she was having fun in her house, “No. I have to go find a new house that’s empty.”

“Yes, I just want to cuddle all day!”

After explaining how many children she has, “There’s not enough chairs for them to eat…and there’s only one bathroom…”

“Mommy, is there going to be bugs in it?” (Once again, I made a note of the quote but I completely forgot the context…)

Leila: “Did you wear high heels to your wedding?” Mommy: “No.” Leila: “Do you wear high heels to night things?” (Mommy is already a bit of a fashion disappointment.)

“I relax. I’m not driving.”

“If I had a whole world made of cookies and I got hungry I could just eat them!”

An announcement before a living room performance, “…make sure phones are off…” (a few days later she did a performance and told the audience to make sure “phones are charging” and babies were not crying).

“Of course I want to go to a school with monkey bars!”

Upon leaving a restaurant, “There’s a house, but it can’t be a neighborhood! There’s a restaurant next to it! That don’t make sense!”

Discussing her living room performance, “This is a very kids show. Kids can come, every time it’s different. I can do cards…I can do Farsi cards…”

Leila: “This is my…test.” Mommy: “Do you know what a test is?” Leila: “Yes. Like a singing test…or a drawing test. Things like that.”
