July Leila Love 2

Trying to convince Daddy to take turns trying to win instead of always trying to win, “But I want to win too! Let’s both try to win! Maybe we’ll both win at the same time. That would be fun!”

Said, in the middle of July, “The lake is cold! Probably in the summer it’s nice and warm.”

Holding her new doll and singing to herself in the car, “I’m his sister. He’s my brother. I take care of him…I take care of my baby brother!”

Explaining a game she was playing with some cousins she recently met, “He and me are trying to keep the ball away from her, the girl with the hat.”

Discussing the situation of the geese she saw on the lake, “There are 23 geese. They are going to Africa. It is going to take 40 nights. They are going to stay at ah hotel along the way. They are going to swing there.”

While playing with Mommy, “I’m going to pretend I do. I don’t really like lettuce, but I’m going to pretend I do.”

Talking to Mommy, “Just take your time! You don’t need to rush!”

Telling a story, “…My first wish is no seaweed at the beach…”

Discussing the pile of recently created art work covering her desk, “so we have a lot going on here.”

“Let’s pretend Miss Jane Mousekawitz doesn’t want me to get married because she likes me. And she’ll miss me…and she doesn’t want me moving to another city.”

I’ll still come in your bed, but the more bigger I get the longer I’ll sleep in my bed…until I’m 10 and I’ll sleep all the way in my bed.”

Yeah, cause I’m afraid it will rain cause all weekend it’s supposed to rain.” (What happens when your parents discuss their fear of rain and its impact on their upcoming party all week.)

(When Mommy asked what there is at a grown-up’s party.) “Sometimes balloons at a grownup party…sometimes talk at a grownups party…sometimes play grownup games…”

Mommy: “Where’s Leila?” Leila: “It’s me! Right here! I’m hibernating.”

Singing to herself, “The wonderful things we learn!”

“My doll’s party feels like a wedding. It’s only a dancing party.”

“I have just the thing to decorate it.”

Discussing the turtle in our front yard, “It wants to come in and eat quiche.”

“Abracadabra! Whole world disappear…even the park disappear…and it’s like a big cave!”

Discussing her latest Kiwi Crate creating, “This is so fun! This is even fun as going to the park…this is even fun as cuddling with you, or having a play date.”

“I think Daddy’s going to take his time waking up.”

“Wrigley’s excited to run around on the ranch…she’s excited to do that.”

“My Daddy has always beer.”

“Mommy’s don’t go to work!” (#facepalm)
