Yeah, it was just that simple

This morning Delaney asked me why I'm the Mama. I said because I am, I'm you're mama and you're my baby. She said "Did you name yourself that?"

And more bedtime shenanigans

After I put Delaney to bed last night, I was going about the usual house work that can only be done after she's in bed when I saw her strolling through the living room toward the front door with one of her purses slung over her shoulder. I asked her where she was going and she said "I have to go pay the bills"

More surliness

Delaney kept getting up out of bed the other night after I had tucked her in, meanwhile I was trying to work out. The last time she got up, she wanted me to come in and rub her back, but I told her no, I was busy but I'd come back into her room later and rub her back. Which I did but of course she was asleep.

The next morning I was eating my breakfast and she stormed out of her room with a scowl on her face and said "I thought you were gonna rub my back!"

The package

I received a UPS package the other night that had been left at the apartment complex office, so I told Delaney we had to walk over there to get it. When we were almost there she asked me "so where is this package you were talking about?"


It occured to me that some people who stumble across this blog may not realize that what makes these posts funny is that they're coming out of the mouth of a surly two-and-a-half year old girl.

I was in the bathroom this morning, doing my bidness, and Delaney walked up and stood in the doorway and got this look on her face like she was concentrating, and says "we're both peein'"
