Good for the soul

"What do you want to do on this rainy day girls? Do you want to go see Bugs Bunny movies at the Museum of the Moving Image?" 
Sofia says, "Yes! We love to watch movies, even though they aren't good for the soul. "
"What? Who told you that?"
"You did."

wisdom of children

Sofia says, how come mom was so mad?

I say, I think she was losing her patience.

Sofia says, I think she was losing her manners.


Lucia often calls me Moddy, which I take to be a mash up of mommy and daddy. A compliment!

Sofia says


Sofia gave me a long thin tower made out of small Legos and said, "Here's a piece of candy for you called a super jumbo forgetter, because you are always forgetting, but I have superpowers because I am the mother of all mothers."

Turnip roll ups.

Last night I was cutting turnips. I asked Sofia if she knew which vegetable was hard to turn down. She immediately, almost before I finished the sentence, answered, "turn ups."

Today Sofia asked me what I wanted to eat.  When I hesitated she said, "Do you want some roll-ups?" When I hesitated again she started rolling on the floor. She said, "get it? Roll ups?"


Sofia said, I wonder how big outerspace is? I told her that nobody knew. I tried to explain infinity. I said some people think that if you keep going you will come back to where you started.

The super power time of the 13 blackbirds. By Sofia

The 13 blackbirds ate some magic jumping beans and each got a special power. The first blackbird's power is that it can snatch a head off of you if you're being bad. The second blackbird's power is it is very fast flying. The third blackbird could read. The fourth blackbird could fly in loop de loops. Why the fifth one could dress up as anything it wanted too. The sixth one could turn into any shape it wanted, but it had to stay black. The seventh one could sleep in a human bed without messing it up. The eighth one could eat whatever it wanted to, even human food. The ninth one could blow bubble gum without popping it with its beak. And the bubble could last for a long time too. The 10th blackbird could draw without scribbling. The 11th blackbird could put its foot in paint and stomp it on paper. The 12th blackbird could talk. The 13th blackbird could do somersaults. The end.
