We were eating lunch at my friend's house when I snuck into the bathroom real quick. Mia asked where I went and my friend told her she thought I was in the bathroom. I was SHOCKED with Mia's reply...
"Oh! Dis is how you poop!" She continued on with grunting, a serious "push" face and squatting back in her chair, HA HA! Oh how I wish I could have seen this in person!
I was supervising Mia while she painted when she pointed out of the room and said, "go clean the house!"
We were cleaning up some blocks when Mia accidentally spilled the bag. While picking it up she quietly exclaimed, "oh crap!" Of course I made a big deal out of it because that's the first time I'd ever heard her say that, ha ha, but hey! The video I took is a gem that will make me laugh no matter how rotten my day is going. She continued to shout "oh crap!" the rest of the night to try and get a reaction out of me, but I don't recall her saying it since this day :)
After reading a Halloween themed book (mid July), Mia asked me for a pumpkin. I asked her if she wanted to carve pumpkins again this year (not expecting her to remember carving them last year) in a couple of months.
"Yes! Eyes, nose, chin. Outside?"
"Do you remember putting the pumpkins outside last year?!"
She nodded her head. A few seconds later she started to make the puking sound then started laughing! Eric made a pumpkin "barf" while gutting it last year and Mia thought it was hilarious (I caught it on video- it's so good!) and she obviously remembers! For some reason that totally blew my mind!
One morning after brushing Mia's teeth, I told her I was going to wash her face (like always!) and started washing it. Mia said, "like a beard?! I Eric, momma!" Eric got a good laugh out of that one, ha ha!
Mia and I were looking at a picture of the two of us on Instagram when she exclaimed, "oh, pretty 'incess!!"
"Who's a pretty princess?" I asked while pointing to myself in the photo.
"Nope!" She took my phone and scrolled to another photo of just herself.
"Dere! Pretty 'incess!" while pointing at herself in the photo with a huge smile on her face. :)
One night during dinner Mia was being exceptionally cute (after being exceptionally beastly at nap time and after she woke) She told me twice that dinner was "dewicious!" and when a package arrived at the door I told her it was for baby brother. "It's a 'prise for baby brudder! He's soooooo cute!" in the sweetest voice. My heart totally melted! Then she started crying because she wanted baby brother's binky's.....
I was talking to Mia about where we live and asked her, "Can you say "Arizona"?!"
"I want donuts!"
She is definitely my kid, ha ha!
