And the winner is…
Girlie! For getting five correct answers (ok so four correct and two partially correct). You get a half million points. Dad T and Gramma Dexter each get 10,000 points for being good sports and actually trying. Maybe next time we’ll offer a real prize.
Here are the answers:
1. “Let’s go outside.” – D
Around out home, this is no surprise. Dan says this daily. And we all agree happily! Except for Abby, maybe. She loves the shade.
2. “I want to go inside.” – L
Spoken not once, but twice during the day (if you don’t count that she says it about fifteen times to make sure we heard her). Once to go inside our friends house and sit in a particular “little chair” and once because there were dogs inside.
3. “This is messy. Clean it up.” – L
During breakfast Lydia spilled her oatmeal. She can’t stand messes.
4. “I don’t need a nap today.” – J
Yes, that was me, not the two-year-old. I normally need a nap every day. But when a day like this is so perfectly warm and sunny and full of friends, and Dan is home, I’ll give up my precious nap.
5. “I’m not tired.” – L
Yeah, that was Lydia. She never thinks she’s tired.
6. “Ah-buh-gah.” – A
7. “Hold me!” – L, J, D, and A
I gave partial credit on this one. Lydia asked first. Abby “asked” in her baby language and cries. And Mommy didn’t want to be left out. Dan just said it as he copied the rest of us, but it still counts. This one ended in a family group hug.
8. “It doesn’t get any better than this!” – D
Dan, enjoying the beautiful day.
9. “I’m scary!” – L
Lydia got bit by some mosquitoes and another bug. As everyone examined her bite to determine if it was dangerous, she got pretty scared. And when she’s scared she says, “I’m scary!” For the record, the bite did not appear to be dangerous and it’s healing just fine.
10. “I’m stinky.” – J
You don’t have to spend too many days with our family to hear Lydia say this. Actually, she’ll shout it if your not paying attention and she wants a diaper change. But this time it was me, and no, I didn’t have any accidents. We were walking in the hot, sunny weather and I was starting to sweat.
