We're gonna need a bigger chimney

Me: "We'll have to also remember to set out some carrots for Santa's reindeer to snack on."

Elizabeth: "Yes." [pause] "Do the reindeer... come into the house too?"

They make a taffy just for this purpose

(While playing a game, Elizabeth gets a major case of the giggles...)

Me: "OK, it's your turn. Go ahead & roll the dice."

Elizabeth: [still giggling] "I can't! I'm too laughy!"



Daddy: "What does your shirt say?"

Elizabeth: "It says: 'Wah-Ka-Mee Preschool!'"


This girl is not even 15 years old!

Grama: "I love the color red. That's my favorite color."

Elizabeth: "I know. You told me that hundreds of times."

Good Question

"Why do moths fly?"


Insult du jour

"You dumb cereal."

In which the tables are turned

(While driving...)

Me: "When you're bigger, I'll teach you to drive a car, OK?"

Elizabeth: "I already know how to drive a car."

Me: "Oh... OK."

Elizabeth: "But, when I'm bigger, I want a new bed."

Me: "Why's that?"

Elizabeth: "Because I'm too big for my bed."

Me: "Of course! Yes, you can have a new bed when you're bigger."


"You know what I want when I'm bigger? A bigger house."

Elizabeth: "Why?"

Me: "Because we're too big for our house."

Elizabeth: "I don't want a new house."

Me: "But, it might be fun to have a bigger house...?"

Elizabeth: "Well... we'll see, OK?"


Insult du jour

"You sloppy egg."

Preschooler One-Liners

"You've got mail! Check out it!"


He's pretty good

Daddy: "Elizabeth, are you going to write a letter to Santa & let him know what you'd like for Christmas?"

Elizabeth: "I think Santa has an idea."



(While reading a famous book...)

Me: "Would you eat them in a box? Would you eat them with a fox?"

Elizabeth: "Is the fox going to eat the green eggs & ham?"

Me: "Yes, I think so."

Elizabeth: "What do foxes eat?"

Me: "Probably small animals like rabbits."

Elizabeth: "And maybe porcupines!"
