Conversations with my three year old: Volume 2



More from my middle child (If you missed the first installment, you can check it out here):

. . .

Anna: "My little girl needs to be feeded. She likes her mommy's bottle." (And proceeds to sit on the rocking chair next to mine and nurse her baby just like mommy).

. . .

Anna: "What's that smell in the air? Oh, I forgot. It's my baby. She pooped in her diaper." (Three year olds love the word "poop.")

. . .

Anna: (Before bed.) "I need to blow my nose."
(Walks past the bathroom and goes downstairs, and then returns to bed. Daddy tucks her in and finds a play cell phone stuffed in her pants.)
Me: (After I recover from a fit of laughter) "Why did you need your phone?"
Anna: "I need to know the time." (Says the child that doesn't know her numbers).

. . .

Sarah (big sis): (Arguing over the toys the baby is playing with) "Anna, let him bang it himself!"
Anna: "I already ate!"

while Big Sis does homeschool
. . .

Anna: (Looking at Sarah's picture of a flamingo and noticing the bent foot) "That looks like a four!"
Me: (Very excited that she recognized the number four) "Great Anna!!!"
Anna: "Yeah. Four can be for elephant. No, elephant starts with "l" for "el."
It's a start . . .

. . .

Anna: (holding her paper plate in the back seat of the car) "This looks like a drive thingy."
Me: (seizing a teachable moment) "You mean a steering wheel."
Anna: "No."
Me: "That's what it's called."
Anna: "No. That's not what it is"


 . . .

Me: "Anna, you need to eat one more thing for breakfast--a banana, yogurt . . . "
Anna: "I'll have a cookie."

. . .

Anna: "I hear footprints up in the house."

. . .

Anna: "Sarah gave me hanitizer" (hand sanitizer).

. . .

(After watching the woodpecker episode on Wild Kratts and poking her brother's head repeatedly with her finger)
Anna: "My hand was like a woodpecker!"
Me: "Anna, if you want to poke something, poke wood, not your brother's head."

. . .

While playing outside at a friend's house:
Anna: "Mom, my pants are wet."
Me: "That's okay. We can change them when we get home."
Anna: "I fell in some water."
. . . pause while I observe said pants.
Me: "Anna, did you pee your pants?!"
Anna: "Yes."

Spring means the mud kitchen is open again!
