“Go Cubs! I hope the Cubs win!”

“Mommy, when I first get on the track I can run so fast because I haven’t been running I have enough energy.”

The morning after her Aunt N’s wedding, “I actually just slept in my dress and my hair up…I’ll just take it out when I get up.”

“Wait, I forgot I had some money in the bedroom! Wait a minute and I’ll share some with you!”

Holding Mommy’s face, “I want to kiss you here.” After pecking Mommy on the lips, “Now we’re married.”

“Drink a lot of water and take chicken soup for lunch.”

While Mommy was smearing sunscreen on her, “It’s complicated to focus on my socks.”

To Mommy, after Mommy accidentally knocked her headbands off their holder, “Could you put all those back on here? I really don’t’ want a mess.”

Leila: “This is my new drum that’s on sale!” Mommy: “What’s that mean it’s on sale?” Leila: “It means you can buy it!”

For her Uncle N’s birthday card, “Can you help draw ‘I love you’?”

At the Thanksgiving lunch at school, “Is it okay if I stay the whole day?”

Watching a 15-year-old figure skater, “How old is she? She looks young!”

While drawing a penguin, “This is challenging.”

Looking at the height markers on our kitchen wall, “I can’t imagine me that small”

“That’s a treasure map because it has ‘x’.”

Leila was talking about all the planets she learned about and listing them off. When she reached a pause Mommy prompted, “Ur…” Leila: “Europe?”

Talking about Iran, “But is it in Bastrop?”

Eating bread and butter at the co-op, “Mmm, mmm. It’s like we’re at a real restaurant right S?”

AND..Leila read her 1st book!

“I wish I was a jellyfish wasp so I could sting people.”

Sharing why she likes Sid the Science Kid, “Yeah, cause I learn about things I never learned about.”

After Mommy requested she help with Seven, “Well, she’s just kind of a little bit scared of me.”

Discussing her school lunches, “My ideas for nutrition were cheese stick, yogurt, and fruit. My other ideas were fruit chews and pretzels.”

Thoughts after a trip to TCBY, “Not a lot of people were there…cause they had ice cream after lunch.”

…And she called the toppings “decorations”

“Mommy do you remember when Wrigley had Seven in her mouth?…Seven acted like she was older than Wrigley. Like past 11.” (Side note: No pups were harmed, but our newest dog struggled with a little bit of jealously/need to exert her nonexistent dominance.)

“Mommy, sometimes can I be on the TV?…Maybe when I’m 6 I could do gymnastics on the TV?”

Thoughts on the Kusama exhibit, “It reminds me of a restaurant with no chairs or tables that’s closed.”

“Is there any way there’s an onion wrapper on this box?” (There was a piece of onion skin on a box.)

After reading What Do You Do With A Problem? Mommy: “Have you ever had a problem?” Leila: “I hadn’t had a problem this big.”

An inquiry about Seven, “Mom, can I leash her to the car?”

Forming her little fingers into a triangle and discussing the cookie situation for a prospective party, “I’m figuring out what size it should be.”

Playing eye spy, “It’s something on my body that’s small and colorful.” (It was her fingernails.)
