This edition of Slices of Life contains some favorite gems that Daphne has come up with recently.
*Daphne was reading off her list of things to do for the day:
"First we'll go to Fred Meyer's, then we'll go to [her friend's] house, then we'll come home and watch a show."
The recipe for a good day in her eyes, apparently.
*Daph's getting really good at identifying specific musical instruments in a song. The other day while out running errands a piece of music came on the radio and we started playing our "Let's ID the Instruments!" game. (Best car game ever.)
Daphne: "Is that the guitar?"
David: "Nope, that's the trumpet, like what Daddy plays."
After a long, long pause, Daphne said, "I play the microphone."
Now if you ask her what instrument she plays she will tell you she plays the microphone.
*She asked me the other day, "Is your hair strong like in the Bible?"
(Name that Bible story!)
*When Daphne told me this summer that she "only goes to the bathroom in the toilet and in the grass" I knew that someone other than myself was teaching her about toileting locations, since I've always emphasized the importance of using only a toilet.
*The concept of time is confusing for any child, and when Daphne told me "I will have those later yesterday for my birthday" I really had no idea when she was talking about.
*Ever letting her imagination run wild, especially when it comes to pretending what she can be, she told me "I'm an f-15 girl. I need to go to the airport to take off." Also, you can tell that there is much talk in our house about airplanes.
*Daph got into a little trouble the other day and so was spending some time out time in her bed. When I went in to get her she appeared to be missing, but on closer inspection I found that she had taken the pillow out of the pillowcase and climbed inside the case. It was a pretty good hiding place.
*David: "Tomorrow I think we'll go outside and you can help me pick up pine cones."
Daphne: "I don't want to go outside. I want to stay inside and help mommy and talk about stuff."
Me: "Oh really? What are we going to talk about?"
Daphne: "Bananas. And animals. Banana animals."
*And finally, I heard Daph hollering about putting a headband on Christian so that his hair would stay out of his eyeballs. I grabbed the camera and found this scene in the bathroom:
The big sis dressing up the little bro has officially begun. And it seems as if Christian is quite pleased with the arrangement.
