"I don't have lots of legs. I just have two."
After hearing footsteps upstairs:
Me: Sounds like your big brother is awake.
Julia: And my big brother Daddy is at work.
"I'm praying for Mommy. Are you a person?" "You're a Daddy. You're not a person." "Is Philip a person? Am I a person?"
Playing hide and seek, Julia lifts up a box that her brother is hiding under.
"Who lives under here? Oh, a smoky jellyfish!"
"Daddy will never find me here?"
Julia: I don't feel good.
Me: What doesn't feel good?
Julia: You're not reading me stories.
Wearing a skirt with no tights or leggings for the first time this spring:
"Why do I get to have naked legs today?
Philip is on a bird counting kick. One day when he wasn't seeing many birds:
Me: Maybe you should count all the different bird sounds you hear instead.
Julia: Yeah! I hear an eagle and a Chihuahua bird.
"Daddy will never know I've been eating whipped cream."
After visiting some friends who have a large family.
Me: How many siblings do you want?
Andy: How about you, Julia
Julia: Ummm, eleven.
While at dinner one night, Julia told Andy and I:
"You guys are real crunchy to eat."
"It is so prettiful outside today."
Kicking off our bedtime prayers:
"Bless us O Lord, and these thy gifts...through Christ our Lord. Amen. Ready or not, here I come!"
"Small cars don't go fast. Because small cars be slow...worms be slow, too!"
"You know I need to go potty since Christmas."
