While driving we pass by a house under construction…
David: Look Meredith, a house is being built.
Meredith: When I get bigger I buy dat house.
David: Yeah because you’ll want to live near mommy and daddy right? And you’ll have a lot of money so you can buy it.
Meredith: I want all YOUR money.
David: Don’t worry, you’ll have it.

Reading books before bed…
Meredith: I came out of your tummy and then it was baby brudder’s turn.
Me: that’s right and I’m so glad you came out and are growing into my big girl.
Meredith: I want to do it again!
Me: what?
Meredith: go in your tummy!

After I wiped her face clean after breakfast…
Meredith: my face is soooo pretty.
Me: yes it is!
Meredith: God made my face.

Getting the kids and all the stuff loaded in the car in the morning, and she got in her car seat herself and I was about to turn the car on…
Meredith: hey! You forgot to put my seat belt on!
Me: oh yeah, you’re right!
Meredith: silly goose.

After a rough morning…
Me: you’re gonna go play with Daddy for awhile now.
Meredith: why?
Me: because you’re driving me crazy.
Meredith: you ARE crazy.

    This, and the other posts like it, are my favorite posts! I can just hear Meredith saying these things. How precious is the mind of a toddler! I especially liked the Santa/Jesus comment and the God/face comment. She is learning Truth. Good job, Mom!
