Nothing too new around here, so thought it was time to share the latest Emmaisms I've been recording...

On Fashion:
While at my parents' house for Thanksgiving, my Dad was helping Emma with a Barbie doll. Upon seeing the Barbie's typical non-practical attire, my Dad said, "Barbie better be careful, or she's going to fall on her keister." After we all chuckled, my sister asked Emma if she knew what Grandpa meant. Emma replied that "Yes. Grandpa means Barbie is going to fall on her high heels." (Butt...footwear...whatever! Lol.)

On potatoes:
NO idea what prompted this, but as Em and I were grocery shopping during winter break, our cashier was chuckling at something the bagger boy said. Em looked at the cashier and said, "Why are you laughing, I'm not a potato?" (Ummm. Weird.) 12/19/09

On Heights:
A few weeks ago, Em was talking with my sister Laurel on the phone. Emma said,
"Are you afraid of heights? I'm not!" She then promptly fell off the furniture she'd been climbing on and got a large bruise on her leg. (Is this height karma?)

On Santa:
As we were driving around looking at Christmas lights a few days after Christmas, Emma said from the backseat, "Mommy, do you know how I know that Santa is real? Cuz' I've seen him! Duh!" (How could I argue with that?) 12/27/09

On Broadway Lyrics: Emma and I were driving along singing to the "Don't Rain On My Parade" song as sung on the Glee CD Soundtrack I received for Christmas. The first stanza is:
Don't tell me not to live, just sit and putter,
Life's candy and the sun's a ball of butter.
Don't bring around a cloud to rain on my parade.
After singing this, Em started laughing. She said, "Mommy, that is SO silly. If the sun was butter it WOULD be raining on us!" She found this idea hilarious.

On Disney Quotes:
We cracked up, when Emma told us that Woody (the cowboy toy from Toy Story) says, "There's a stink in my boot!" (Woody actually says, "There's a snake in my boot," but we think Em's line is more logical and humorous.) 1/2/10

Hope everyone's year has gotten off to a good start...and that you're discovering some fun -isms of your own. ;)

Emma and Gabe would be dangerous together. I can just imagine what they would come up with together...LOL.

I love the things she comes up with! There must never be a dull moment at your house!

Have I mentioned that I saw a little girl in my store that was a dead ringer for your Em? It was just after Christmas, and honestly I had to do a triple take.

I love her logic... of course she knows that Santa is real.

I love these glimpses of life with Em. She's a pistol!

And thinking of you on this day of remembering.
