Tomorrow my daughter will be 3. I am still in disbelief – where did the time go? It seems like only yesterday I was nervous and excited waiting for my scheduled C (she was a breech baby), and today she is a little person with her own likes, dislikes and her own view of the world around her. She is very talkative and she cracks me up so often when she offers her perls of wisdom to me. Here are some of them:

I like girls. I like them best. But all my friends are boys, because they do what I say.

When papa and I go to the mall, all my food falls from my tummy into my popo. Then my tummy is empty, and I want to eat French Fries.

I will not take my kitty to school. Maybe she can go when my friends are older and learn how not to grab.

All my friends are different. Some are tall and some are small. Some speak English and some speak German. And some speak Spanish too. (Me: Who speaks Spanish?). Dora and Diego!

My left foot is a boy. He looks like a boy. He is a Mister. And my right foot is a girl. She is a Miss. And when I grow up, she will be a Missis.

When I grow up, I will grow into mommy, and I will have your breasts. But first I want to only grow up a little bit, not so much like papa.

Happy upcoming birthday, my little Mouse. I am looking forward to enjoying your fourth year of life.

AWWW! Today is M's last day as a two year old, too!

I have always liked your interviews, and might attempt one (though with the speech problems, I am not sure how it will go).

Happy Birthday!!

Bitter Sweet! We want them to not grow so fast, but yet we love to see the milestones! Happy Birthday Anna!

One of my favorite things about blogging is being able to document these types of things.

Happy Birthday, Anna!

Happy Early Birthday to Anna!! You're right, time flies:-)!

OK, these are some of the funniest kid quotes I've ever heard. She is so cute and smart too. LOVE the fact that she already knows "boys listen better than girls", and the breast comment is hilarious--the "foot" one too!

LOVE this post!!

I know - the passing of time is so sweet and tough too. I find myself wishing M would let me catch my breath a little before he grows anymore... but they don't, they just keep growing! Anna is such an adorable girl - I love watching her grow up and I love her pearls of wisdom. :) They sound very much like some of the pearls we hear around here! I hope you have a wonderful birthday, Anna! You'll be a super 3 year old big girl!!

Happy Birthday Anna! Those are hilarious. I really need to start writing down some of the things that M&M says.

Hilarious, especially the first one!

Your daughter is hilarious! My favorite quote is the one about telling boys what to do. Love it! I know what you mean about time passing quickly. D will be (I can hardly say it) four in December. Happy Birthday to Mouse! :)

So cute! I love the things that come out of little kids' mouths. :) My daughter turns 3 in January. I can't believe they grow so fast.

Mommy Bear said...

Happy Birthday little mouse! You have the same birthday as me but I may be just a little bit older. LOL

I love the quotes. So cute!

aww what she says is sooo cute!

my son is turning three in january and as much as im happy about it im sad... but for some reason my lil one who is 5 months old makes me more sad because i feel like her 5 months here have been with a blink of the eye... i think with your first baby u get to enjoy your time more with them and only focus on them

happy birthday to anna!
