You know...those funny things kids say!
Naomi: "Mommy? What do we need throats for?" (4/20/11-while I was doing her hair)
Naomi: "WOW! I look SO CUTE!!!" (5/18/11-while looking in the mirror)
Naomi: "Who's that guy up there?" (5/19/11-After hearing her future principal speak on the intercom system at Kindergarten Orientation.) My reply(as I was standing next to my friend, and the principal's wife): "'That guy,' is your principal, Mr. Taylor." Much laughter. Much laughter. I could see the wheels turning in Naomi's little head, however...hmm...I wonder what a "principal" is...
Me: "You know, Tate, Ethiopia has the best coffee in THE WORLD?!"
Tate: "I thought that was Starbucks." (6/23/11)
Naomi: "Pink is a great color. I don't know why boys don't like it." (8/7/11)
Darby: "Mommy! I-wanna-cookie."
Darby: "I-NEED-a cookie." (9/7/11)
Naomi: "Mommy! I CAN'T LOSE! I HATE losing!!!" (9/9/11-thinking about her upcoming soccer game)
Darby: "I'll be back in a minute..." (12/11/11-walking into a closet with a razor)
Me: "Yeah...don't think so."
Me: "Give me purple, or give me DEATH!" (while adding purple food coloring to cupcake frosting)
Naomi: "NO! Not death!" (big, dramatic pause) "Wait....what's death?"
Me: "It's where you go to be with Jesus."
Naomi: "NO! Don't give her death! Just give her purple!" (12/16/11)
Darby: (Screaming, crying and demanding at Naomi's Tea Party)
Tate: "So much for Silent Nights!" (12/17/11)
