"Deep Thought" and Winner.

Bruce and I often look at each other wide eyed after some sort of deep conversation with Talia. She's had a command of the English language since she was about a year old, and to our disadvantage (and her advantage!) she has become a master debater. There is no topic that she is not willing to dive into: marriage, the Holy Spirit and iPhones have been recent topics. When disciplining her I find myself in a sea of "options" that she, herself, has chosen. It can be exhausting one minute and thrilling the next to be a part of her world.

This week, as we were clearing the table after dinner one night, Talia gave me the quote of all quotes that pretty much describes how she sees herself in this world. She said,
"When I was a little girl, I didn't know it."
Age 3.75
She has never said anything more true in her life. :)
And the winner of yesterday's Dairy Queen's Blizzard for two, which is really a $10 gift card...hey maybe number 9 (thank you can buy three!!!!!!!

  1. I love it! She is so sweet. I'm sorry I didn't enter the contest. I could use a blizzard. :)

  2. I love it! I have a grandgirl just like her! LOL

  3. Love it!! That is the best 3.75 year old comment!!! I can relate to the wide variety of convos - I'm always in awe at how our convos jump from such extreme things. You should print that out and frame that quote.

  4. Talia has a super high E.Q.

  5. true true true.

    since i didn't win i will have to go and buy my own the Mac DQ.
    ha ha ha

  6. I forgot to tell you that Talia came over a few weeks ago and I was getting ready for a date night. She said "ohhhh, you look pretty. Sometimes my mom gets pretty too." :) You'll have to give me a heads up when she comes over from now on. I'll put on a little extra makeup and fish for compliments.
