The Mouths of Babes

Here are a couple of conversations Daphne and I have had lately:

Me: Daphne, put your pink sockies on, please.
Her: I don’t want pink sockies.
Me: Do you want to go get some white ones?
Her: No. I don’t want white sockies. I just want toes.

The other day I cut Daphne’s nails. They had grown quite long and very dirty. After I cut them, they felt strange to her and she exclaimed, “Mommy, Help me! My nails feel silly!”

Me: Come here, Sweet Love.
Her: Mommy, that’s not my beautiful name.
Me: It’s not?
Her: No. Beautiful’s name is Daphne.

It's good you're posting these so she can relive these times forever. Don't forget to show them to her boyfriend when she starts dating at 25.

Funny stuff. I keep wondering what we did for entertainment before kids.

Those are so cute! I love her toes and her silly nails, but especially Beautiful's name Daphne.
