Posting at SHINE

After almost 3 years of posting to this blog I've decided I am going to simplify my life and put all posts (for all my children!) on my "photography blog": SHINE!
I hope to see you there!

Tia Talk

Some conversations with the Princess of Quite-A-Lot that I don't want to forget:

Sitting at the table one evening Tia kept getting up and walking around so we secured the strap on her booster seat. She kept yelling "up! up! when that brought no response from us she changed her cry to "abawo, abawo" we just looked at her and shook our heads, not understanding what in the world she was talking about. Finally Jonah(12) started laughing . . . "she is saying ABAJO, it's from Dora!, it means DOWN,DOWN!"
we all cracked up!

I was pouring some chocolate powder in Tia's milk and the floors had just been mopped, so when some of the powder spilled I asked Tia to please not touch. She said: "I NOT touchin', I just lookin'!" a few seconds later I noticed she was rubbing her finger in the chocolate powder and putting it in her mouth - I reminded her that I didn't want her to touch it. Tia's response: "I NOT touchin', I just lickin'!"

Last night I was sitting next to Tia's bed as she was supposed to be falling asleep.

T: Mom, you seepy?
Me: Yes,
T: Mom, you supa hungwee?
Me: No
T: you vewy sick?
Me: No
T: Mom, you just vewy vewy tiwad?
Me: Yes, I replied, I am very tired, please fall asleep."
Tia: you seep Mom, you tiwad!
