Audrey: [Picture Audrey's arms around my neck] I love you mom!
Me: I love you too.
Audrey: I'm going to miss you so much.
Me: Where am I going?
Audrey: Will you marry me?
Me: This is getting very Freudian
In the distraction and fury created by the talk I had to give in sacrament meeting, I missed some important details...
Audrey's and my conversation as I realized she was walking into the church foyer carrying a plate with a ginormous cinnamon roll and a fork.
Me: Audrey, you may not carry your breakfast with you into Sacrament meeting.
Audrey: But I'm hungry!!!
Matt: This is so embarrassing!!
Me to Nathan: You handle this. I'm going to sit on the stand.
Me: Audrey, your skin is getting so brown for summer!
Audrey: I don't want to be brown! I want to be beige!
This is how Audrey feels about her new Tinkerbell toilet seat. And toilets in general, I'm afraid.
Audrey does not enjoy potty "training." Once she realized that it is not an actual train she gets to ride, she's been quite resistant. Our most recent conversation about it:
Me: How about we wear undies today?
Me: You're a big girl now. [3 yrs. 7 months, and 5 lbs lighter than her 7-yr-old brother]
Audrey: I'm NOT a big girl! I'm not a teenager.

Tonight I asked Audrey for a kiss. She sweetly grabbed my chin, looked in my eyes, and said, "No thanks."

I think Emma has officially become more like me than I am like myself. Uh, whatever. What I mean is that she does a lot of stuff to me that I remember doing to my mom. Her newest thing is writing me notes. (I know I wrote you some doozies. Sorry, Mom.) Here are a couple of her recent ones, original spelling and all:
"I burlie can breath and my lieft eye hurts and my nose. Emma."
"Dear Mom. I'm glad your my mom. I sorry abuot all the mishif I made and all the fighting and all the mad stuff and the thing I did today. Love, Emma."
I had to include this photo because it shows another habit Emma and I share - wearing our sister's clothes. She organized this photo shoot of herself, wearing Audrey's dress as a shirt. I wasn't too thrilled about my 7-year-old borrowing clothes from her sister who is not yet 2, but I gotta give her props for at least making sure she had "sleeves."
