Emmy says

Em was really excited when 3 yo asked to ride the elevator down, and she was deeply disappointed when we did. She thought he had said "alligator."

Emmy says a lot of fun things, and also Dan

Emmy found a large stuffed Disney character at the store and carried it all around, happy to have "Icky Mouse" to hug.

Dan says: "McDonald's scrambled eggs looked like they could be a communicating life form."

Emmy threw a temper tantrum because she's not old enough to go to Young Women's Wednesday activities yet. "I want to come with my womens!" she screamed over and over.

Emmy is so competitive.
Me to Em: "Are you stubborn, just like your mom? Just like me?"
Emmy: "No! Me like Mom. Not you like Mommy!"

Emmy says,

1 yo is highly competitive and independent. Yesterday it was:

Me: "I need to blow my nose."
Em: "NO! Boogers are mine. _I_ blow nose."

Me: "I got up at 10:30 am yesterday, and 11:00 am today! Hooray!"
3yo: "But I got up at 13."
Em: "I get up at twenty. One." (said as though on second thought, twenty was not a big enough number.)(I didn't even know she knew "twenty.")

I lift her off my bed.
"No! Me do it!" She climbs back on so she can slide back off herself.

I put her diaper on.
"No! Me do it!" She takes her diaper half way off and realizes that she can't do it, so she says, so sweetly, "Mommy tab it up." I do. She rips it open again. "No! Me do it!"

Did I just read that?

This is for real. Also funny. The whole article is actually quite delightful, from peanutbutter covered M&Ms all the way to raining chicken heads from the helicopter.
