We went to a party where she was sitting at the table with another 3 year old boy. During the pause in the conversation at the big table, she said sternly, You’d better watch out, N. When girls get fat, it’s because there is a baby in their tummy. When boys get fat, it’s because they eat too much!

When discovering that her pair of sandals fits much better: Mama, I am really growing! I am growing so fast! I am the fastest growing kid ever!

  • When I grow up, I want to live with you… But wait! I want to have my own children. That’s when I suppose I will have to have my own place.
  • Me: Usually children move out when they get their first job and have enough money to be able to have their own place.
  • Anna (confidently): But, mama, I already have lots of money in my piggy bank! But I still want to live with you guys.

Well, it's nice to know she's not planning on moving out immediately :)

Debbie said...

You better watch out while she says she's not moving out right away, she is the fastest growing child with lots of money. These are cute!

She is too much. I used to tell my parents I was going to build a house in their field next door. (And then they went and moved so I guess that blew that plan.)

Very cute. I like the first one the best!

:) Crumpet is going to live with me too! Except one day when he was angry, and he couldn't wait to grow up and have an apartment so he could be ALONE.

Well, I'm glad to know that if I don't get pregnant again, I won't get fat.

My favorite is definitely the first one. I would love to know where her take on what makes men "fat" came from! Very funny!

Precious! I love them all. This morning I was explaining what marriage meant, because today is our wedding anniversary. I said something like "today is our anniversary, which means it is the day we celebrate when mommy and daddy got married. To get married means you choose a person that you want to be with, and usually live together, and maybe start a family..." He said, "I will be with Mama so I can snuggle her."

JC said something similar a while back. She said she wanted to have five babies and wanted to live with us so we can help take care of them. :0

Anna is too cute!

She is so funny! How do you keep a straight face...or maybe you don't, when having these conversations? I love how serious she about it all too.

Adorable!!! Kids grow up so quickly. Mark was once quoted as saying that he wanted to live with his parents forever and ever!
