2 Forever


I ask her, my two-year-old, "What will you be able to do when you are older that you cannot do now?"

She answers, without even a second to think on it, "I will be able to read a storybook by myself when I am bigger.  I will buy some boots at the store.  My feet will reach the table."

----------

We are in the car.  She says to us, "I will marry to my sister!"

We tell her that you cannot marry your sister.  You have to choose someone else, a partner.

She says, "But Sissy is my partner, Mamma.  I will marry to my Sissy and Sissy will marry to me!"  Turning to her sister, with an incredible smile on her face, "Sissy, we be married to each other!"

----------

We are lying in bed.  She grabs my arm and hugs it.  "I just love you so much, Mamma."  I hug her and kiss her head.  "I love you, too, Sweetness," I declare.  "No, Mamma, I am Neviyah."  Then she giggles.

Favorite commands.  "Tell me a 'pooky story!"  "I just really want a peanut butter and jelly (je-wee) sandwich."  "Eh, eh, eh...I need water!"  "I just really want somebody to play chase with me."  "Pancake!"  "Waffle!"  "I wanted juice."  "I wanted lemonade."  "I wanted water."  "The pink lid!"  "The yellow (ye-woe) lid!"  "I really wanted the green cup."  "Dora the Explorer (Dora the Aploora)."  "I wish I could watch Little Bear (yittle bear)."  "Where's my Grandma?"  "I am really tired. Put me to bed, Mamma."
