Me: Lucy, do you want to do a reading lesson now? I'm done with the dishes.
Lucy: Yes, well, I want to play this though.
Me: You can play instead, that's okay.
Lucy: No, I want to do a reading lesson but let's pretend that you are the teacher and I am the kid who is being homeschooled and you are teaching me about reading. It will be fun.
Me: I think I can do that
Jonah, Lucy and I are all snuggled in bed one morning.
Lucy: I'm being smooshed. I only have as much room as a Zebra stripe!"
For Background: We live next door to a car repair shop which I shall call "Bob's Car Shop" (note to creepy stalker people, it's not actually called Bob's Car Shop so no need to google).
Lucy: What's that?
Me: It's a tow truck.
Lucy: It takes broken cars away right?
Me: Right, that car must not be working right now.
Lucy: Oh my, they had better get that car to Bob's Car Shop!"
I posted that on their local page and they all got a kick out it.
Reading Lucy a birthday message which ended, Love, Aunt Steph
Lucy: Love Aunt Steph? I already do!
I had to explain that the card wasn't really meaning to be bossy :-)
I know we do things a little differently, but it still sometimes hits me sometimes. This conversation happened while we were camping in the yurt.
Lucy: What will we do if it rains?
Me: Go inside the yurt and play or look at books.
Lucy: Or watch something?
Me: Well, we didn't bring the computer
Lucy: But there is one of those things that you can watch shows but you can't pick what is on like in a hotel (she's referring to a tv)
Me: I don't think so
Lucy: Yes, right over the fridge!
Me: That's a microwave
Lucy: What's a microwave?
To be fair, she does know what a tv is, she just can't ever remember what its called. But she had no clue what a microwave was and I had to take a couple minutes to explain it. We don't have one but I guess I didn't realize that neither do any of the other homes she frequents. Maybe we'll find a neat science experiment for our next trip to the Grandparents, like blowing up soap or something.
We've been getting a lot of rain lately which apparently brought up Lucy's inner poet.
The sky is gray
Rainy weather's on its way
And then there's Jonah, who was supposed to be taking a nap when I overheard this.
Jonah: "I'm going to say potty talk now". Pauses..."Potty talk! Potty talk! Potty talk! Am I in trouble? No!"
I guess he found a workaround for the "No potty talk" rule.
