Silly girl...

Most of you know I'm a very routined person. So, my mornings begin at 5:30 a.m. with a cup of coffee in hand, Bible on my lap, sitting on the couch.

Most of you also know that Emily is an E.A.R.L.Y bird! She has always been one to crash early at night and get up early in the morning. It's worked out fine for our family...we just let her get up at 6 a.m. on school days to do her devotion and then read in her room until 6:30 a.m. Then she can get up to do her morning chores and come down.

Lately, Em wakes up and comes down for a little cuddle before reading...which is a.ok by our quiet little snuggles. As I see her head down the stairs I put my coffee cup on the coaster, my Bible on the next couch cushion over, and wait for her to curl up (mostly...tall girl) on my lap. Some days she's groggy, but most days she smiles brightly, giggles, gives me smooches, and talks incessantly (have no idea where she gets that from? ). The other day she was trying to make me laugh, which wasn't hard when this is what I was looking at. Plus, have YOU ever tried not to laugh when you're supposed to be quiet? Impossible right? HA!

Anyway, this silly girl also had me in stitches last night at dinner. She looked at me and asked, "Hey Mom, Big Bill is in France right?"

Me: "Who?"

Em: "You know, the big clock"

Yep, she meant Big BEN and no, Emily...he's in London! Hahahahahaha!

Little Funnies...

You know how it is, kids say the funniest little things. Case started our day by dipping his dry (no milk) Life cereal into his cup of yogurt. Once he realized he could dip it as much as he wanted b/c it was his own little cup, he began saying, "I can double dip (followed by dip two), I can triple dip (followed by dip three), and I can FIPPLE dip (yep, followed by...what else?...dip Four)!" Ha!

Then in the evening it was just Em and I for dinner and out of nowhere she says,"Mom, I can scream like a little girl."
Me: I would hope so, you ARE a little girl.
E: Mom. I am NOT a little girl.
Me: Oh, are you a little BOY?
E: No. Duh, I'm a BIG girl.
Me: Oh, pardon me...and at what point does one become a BIG girl?
E: 6.
Me: Oh, and what comes after being a big girl?
E: A big, BIG girl.
Me: And at what age does that happen?
E: 27.
Me: Do you mean to tell me that Miss Molly is about to become a big, BIG girl on her birthday?
E: (at this point she realizes the hilarity of it all and begins to chuckle) Yes!
Me: Ok, so what comes after big, BIG girl?
E: Old Lady.
Me: Are you calling me an Old Lady?
E: NO. You are a big, BIG girl. You don't become an old lady until you are like 80.
Me: (laughing hysterically) Whew!
