What Esmé (33 months) has to say...
...on homemade popsicles: "It's yucky water, but good juice!"
...on cousins (or TMI): "I farted at my cousins' house, and they laughed! I think I didn't poop at my cousins' house."
...on balanced meals: "I just like [white] rice and ketchup."
...on growing up: "I don’t need help turning the light off. I can do it by myself. I am eating healthy and growing. I am big enough."
...on sign language (accompanied by actions as we are learning the ASL alphabet): "I’m spanking you with an 'S'!"
...on Daniel (or why we are checking out screenwriting programs already): "Once upon a time there were three wise men. And they didn’t like Daniel. The princess liked Daniel. The lions ate the princess. The lions didn’t eat Daniel. The princess didn’t say the right word. The princess didn’t pray to God like Daniel. The king ran down to the lions’ den to see what was left of Daniel. The lions didn’t touch Daniel. But there was no princess."
...on Joseph: "Then he went to Potiphar’s house, and a woman tried to tickle him, and he was afraid. And I laughed!"
