Elsie: "My back hurts."
Elsie: "Cause I'm not pushing on it, and it's got a lot of energy in it?"
Grammy: "Elsie, you sound a bit hoarse today."
Elsie: "I'm not a horse, I'm a unicorn!"
Elsie: struts out of my room in heels and a belt "Ok I'm the mom. We're going on an adventure today. But only if you turn your listening ears on!"
Now, I went back and forth on sharing this last one. But ultimately I find it hilarious and don't want to forget so, sorry Christopher (he voted no), I'm writing it down.
I was making lunch and Elsie was crawling the kitchen. I wasn't paying too much attention to her jabbering, but then she got louder.
"Mama! Mama! I'm tinky (stinky) cunt! I'm a tinky cunt!"
What the hell? What was my child saying to me?? She said it a few more times. Then she said she 'paid' me. A stinky cunt that paid me? Oh my gosh what? Then I figured it out. She was pretending to be a skunk. But it sounded nothing like skunk. And she sprayed me. I could not stop laughing. I'm not mature enough for this parenting thing. And no worries, she decided she didn't want to be a skunk anymore. She wanted to be a titty (kitty).
Oh Elsie girl. She is a character like nobody else.
