Conversations with Cari
Cari picks up an endless stream of things from the people around her...mainly her big brother, but others too. Some of her more priceless conversations:
When she gets mad her favorite line is:
FINE! If you want me to be 'imbisible' FINE! Don't talk to me, I'm MAD! (This is a paraphrase of JJ's favorite phrase, which is "FINE, if you want me to be miserable, FINE" See the correlation?
This this I say - "Well, my work here is done" neither of them thinks this is funny!?
The other night in the bath, I got two for the price of one in the way of priceless Cari-isms:
First of all, she was playing with a medicine syringe in the tub. She wants to pretend she is giving shots. So she says to me "Here Mommy, let me give you a shot. You're suppose to cry. Ok, all done! See that wasn't so bad!" Then a little bit later: "Now you need a vaccination mommy" I asked her about vaccinations and what they did. I knew she got the word from Sid the Science Kid, but wasn't sure if she knew they were really just shots too. LOL Apparently they are different: "So, this time it will hurt a little bit mommy, I think. Maybe not to much. It's ok, calm down, it will only hurt for a minute." I didn't think of it then, but I should have asked her for a sticker for being such a good patient.
And, saving the best for last......she is obsessed with private parts, mostly because of the endless potty training effort.....this one goes a little like this:
Cari: Mommy, boys have penises
Me: Yes, Cari they do
Cari: JJ has a penis
Me: Thats right he does
Cari: JJ doesn't like for me to see his penis, he likes 'pwivacy'.
Me: You are right. JJ is getting bigger. When you get bigger you will want privacy too.
Cari: Girls don't have penises
Me: Thats right, girls have vaginas
Cari: Vaginas? Thats funny!
Cari: So all the boys in the whole world have penises!
Cari : AND all the girls have ................VACCINATIONS!
I almost fell into the tub!
