Day 24: Because She Makes It Too Easy

On seeing me wiggling my hips while mopping yesterday:

"This music not for dancing, Mommy--only for cleaning."

On discovering that although centrifugal force was plastering her to my armpit on the Himalaya Deathdrop at the indoor amusement park, from an analytical perspective, it was kinda fun:

"I thought I didn't like rollercoaster, but I DO like rollercoaster!

On being offered a single representative of her Easter loot, and finding it lacking:

"Can I have ALL jelly beans now?"

On seeing her mommy in a white nightgown (beneath a very cranky face) late at night when she should have been sleeping:

"You look a beauty!"

On the taste sensation that is carne asada tacos:

"It has cheese on it, and crapcake."

On the necessary preparations for going to the park:

"I'm ready!" (naked as a jay bird, except for flip-flops and a ladybug backpack)

Coda: Today after preschool, Jarrah's teacher Janet beckoned me over to tell me that Jarrah had been getting loud with her friend Alex during lunchtime. When Janet came over to investigate, she asked "What's going on here?"

Jarrah: "We're just having a bit of a chat."

Janet told me she had to turn around quickly so the girls didn't see her laughing.

I'm just wondering if "crapcake" was one of J. Dust's first words?

This makes me wonder about something in the dim past: was "crapcake" one of your first words?
