As I was tucking Elise into bed she had a very serious concern: Mom? I don't remember when I was a baby.
Me: Honey, life happens really fast. I don't remember when I was a baby either. I only remember some parts from when you were a baby. No one remembers everything.
Elise: (throws her arms in the air) CURSE YOU FATHER TIME! Reverse the time! Reverse the time!

Copy cat

M: Put that down and start eating your dinner.
E: "Put that down and start eating your dinner."
M (dirty look): Elise!
E: Sorry.


E: Can you keep talking though? I'll just copy you inside my head.

E: Ah... NUTS!!!

M: What's wrong?

E: I just accidentally wished on an airplane. Now all my hopes and dreams are going to fly away.


Mom! I just made a connection between Crocker and Crockpot.
(Crocker is the math teacher from Fairly Oddparents cartoon)

M: Oh yeah? What is it?

1. Crocker and Crockpot both start with the sound "crock" and the letters C-R-O-C-K.
2. They're both tools.

The future

Elise was talking to me about her future. She wondered out loud what her future would look like, then declared in her future she would be a lizard.

M: How are you going to be a lizard in the future? I'm not sure how that works.

E: You know. When I die and turn to dirt. Next time I want to be a lizard. I hope a lot of people choose puppies though. Even as a lizard, I'd love to see more puppies around and less people.

Is this from The Lion King?
And a lizard?

Rhyme time

Elise made a new rhyme today...

You can't impress your teachers,
If you don't have fetching features.
