I have decided to try and post daily all the great words of advise adn wisdom that I recieve from my dear 4 year old. I think that she hopes that one day , something will actually stick with me....

Darby - Mom, I wish I could have a cat.
Mom - Well honey, you cant.
Darby - I know you are lergic, but you could move out and then I could get a cat...
Mom - Well, honey, you might be sad if I move out...
Darby - No, I will get a cat.
Mom - I wont be able to visit you.
Darby - So???
As this conversaion is going on, poor Neely in the back of the car starts to cry. I ask what is wrong and she replies, "I really Really want a cat too...." as she trails of sobbing. I am feeling a bit replaceable right now till Max chimes in and say, "Mom is not moving out!" I feel redeemed! Till he says, "Who would do the laundry?"

Darby - Mom, I like it when Todd licks his bum.
Mom - Darby ! Thaat is soo disgusting! Why would you say things like that?
Darby - He likes it!
Mom - What would you do if Todd licked you right after he licked his bum?
Darby - Mom, I would ask him to only lick Max! If I was a mommy, Todd could always lickhis bum!

When I picked Darby up from school, I asked her what she learned today. She stared at me blankly, so I tried to prompt her about what I tought they were talking about that day, which was water transportation.
Mom - Did you learn about boats and water?
Darby - Yes, and how to move on the water.
Mom - What else did you learn?
Darby - About surfboards, and you can't walk on it, but you can grab a dolphin if you need to.....
I get so happy when she tells me things like that. It shows her imagination just growing and growing.
