It’s way past time to share an Emilyism or two. Let’s see, where to start?

– I must threaten the child that she will not go to a party if I want her to obey me. (If we don’t have a formal party on the weekend, we usually have a neighborhood BBQ.)

– Chests, Part II

  • E: Mom, that guy is showing his chest. (We drove past a man jogging in the neighborhood.)
  • Me: Yes, he is. (Mentally, saying “oh crap”)
  • E: We aren’t supposed to show our chests.
  • Me: That’s right.
  • E: He’s showing his chest!
  • Me: Men can show their chests (although in some cases they probably shouldn’t)
  • E: They can? Boys can show their chests?
  • Me: Correct.
  • E: Girls don’t show their chests.
  • Me: That’s right.
  • E: Boys show their chests; girls don’t show their chests.
  • Me: That’s right!  (WHEW!)

And finally, her opinion of her upcoming birthday, which is in September:

“…and I’m going to have a Cinderella party, a Cinderella cake, a Cinderella dress, Cinderella shoes, and Cinderella presents….”

Hmmm, wonder if that will still be the case come September?

  1. This sounds exactly like my daughter! Whenever we see a guy without a shirt on she comments on it, I guess it’s hard to understand. Hailey is also crazy for Cinderella, we are taking her to Disneyland on her 4th bday this month. I’m sure I’ll have some good stories for you.

  2. Lisa, That is hysterical! I think we are going to have to find a way to get our girls together. And guess what, we’re hoping to take Emily to Disney World for her fourth birthday later this year! LOL!
