Crack makes me tired.
Here's a few funny things my kids have been saying that just need to get written down somewhere:
The other morning we came home from dropping Franny off at school and Sophie informed me that she needed to poop. I asked her if she wanted to try going on the potty. (We took a very large step back from potty training a month or two ago and I'm not yet ready to reembark on that exciting adventure.) She said, "actually... yes." Every time I ask her a question now, her reply starts with, "actually...." It's pretty funny. So anyway, she's sitting on her little pink training potty, trying to do her business and here's how our conversation goes:
Sophie: "Mommy, it's not working! I need more."
Mommy: "More what?"
Sophie: "More batteries."
In case you hadn't guessed, when things aren't working in our house, more batteries usually solves the problem.
Franny's consultant has asked me to write down examples of her sentences, so she can get a better idea of where her language patterns are at, how she's doing with prepositions, pronouns, etc. My favorite one so far has been when she told us that crack makes her tired.
Allow me to explain.
We were sitting in the living room and I twisted at the waist and cracked my back. I said, "Oh, that hurt my back." Franny said, "let me see" and started lifting up my shirt trying to see where I had injured myself. I explained to her that she couldn't see where my back hurt because it was inside my body. She thought about that for a second, and about my reaction. She must have thought I was tired as a result because she said, "Crack makes me tired." It was so cute and so funny.
