Kids say such cute things...

Colette, age 3 1/2, is always saying the cutest things. I wish I had written them all down. The other day I was trying to remember some of them...and thought it would be fun to share them! Enjoy!

I have a Little People Thanksgiving set I put on the table each year for her to play with. Last year when I picked up Colette (then 2 1/2) from school we were talking in the car about what she had done at school and she told me she made a turkey and so we started talking about Thanksgiving. I asked her if she knew who was at the first Thanksgiving and she said no, so I said, "the pilgrims". Then Colette said, "No they weren't, the pilgrims were at your house".

One day I was helping Colette make a card for friends. Colette rolled the glue stick too high and it fell off and she cried, "Oh no, I broke it. It's dead!" I took and told her it was ok, I could fix it. She was glad!

Colette and her mommy were going to go to Toy's R Us one night after they left my house. She told her mommy, "I'd like to buy a wallet...but I already have a wallet." Her mom said, "Yes, you do." Colette said, "But I'd like to buy a wallet that has money in it!"

One day this summer I took Colette and Ashlynn to the park. When I got home, feeling very tired, I sat down in a chair and said, "I'm pooped!" Colette said, "Where did you poop?"

Colette wore jeans on one of our first cool days. She said, "Ms Elaine I wore my long sleeve pants today".

A few days ago after school I asked her, "Would you like to play with your Little People?" "You haven't played with them for a long time" Colette replies, "I played with *Isabel in the play room today"
*Isabel is about 2 yr.

I was telling Colette no she could not do something and she wanted me to let her:
Me: Colette I am not going to change my mind.
Colette: Please change your mind like I do!

I was reading her the book, "If you Give a Mouse a Cookie" and when it came to the part where he hung the picture on the refrigerator with scotch tape she informed me he did not need to do that...he only needed a magnet.

When Colette's daddy picked her up one night she was telling her daddy about not taking a nap at school that day. I wanted him to know that she had a good morning before nap so said, "But Ms. Judy was very impressed this morning that Colette could write one of her letters" Colette told him which letter it was, then said, "Ms Judy was not impressed with my nap time!" Daddy said, "I'm sure she wasn't".

She was going to have dinner with us one night and I asked her if she liked beans. She said, "yes, but only jelly beans.

I agree with Colette. The mouse in If You Give A Mouse a Cookie does need a magnet instead of tape. I have always wondered why Scotch tape was used.

Love these, Elaine! How blessed Colette & her parents are to have such a wonderful caregiver for her. Know that you are such a blessing. It's so obvious that you love this little one & care for her very well. That was such a gift to Joel & I when we had Em & Jon with a sitter - to know that they were not just well cared for, but truly loved too.

Those are so precious! I'm laughing out loud reading them!! Campbell is starting to say more and more funny things, but I can tell the next couple years will get even more entertaining. Too cute!!
