Inside joke

Lucia says, "You know what's funny? There's a funny joke inside of the joke."

Small great

Such a joy just to listen to the girl singing Beatles song while they do bead work.

Common mistake Amber ropes

Lucia: Dad, look at my amber ropes! 

Your amber ropes? 

No envelopes!

True that

Lucia says, smell smell go away, come back again some other day. Sofia says, why would you want that? It'll just be there on another day.

Meditation Sofia

I'm watching this whole thing. 

What whole thing, I ask.

You trying to tell a story. My sister whining. I'm just watching all of that happen.

Grateful dad

I like the sun I said. Sofia said you like the grateful son, get it? I had to think about that one.  I like the Grateful Dead, which sounds like grateful dad. If you like the grateful dad you must like the grateful son/sun.

Why fingernails and toenails

Sofia asks. Is it to help us dig? 

Wow, great question and answered it herself.

Frozen joker

The girls were watching the new Tinkerbell movie. There was a scene of Tink sleeping and I surreptitiously paused the movie. The girls just sat there for a minute or two waiting for Tink to wake up. I finally said, "This sure is a long sleeping scene!" Sofia said, "Hmm, maybe it's frozen." I said, "Come on, this isn't Frozen, it's Tinkerbell," but before I could even finish the sentence Sofia rolled her eyes and said, "I GET it!"

B's and honey

Lucia says I'm baby bear. I say you are baby bear and I call you boogie butter. Boogie butter the baby bear. There's a lot of B's in there I say, a whole hive of B's. Maybe we can get some honey from all those bees? Sofia says, hey, it's only pollen at this point. We have to wait for the bees to throw up before we can get the honey.

Just so you know

Sofia says, "I can see you with the eyes on the back of my head, sis, just so you know."


Sofia woke up and came in our room near midnight. I took her back to bed and tucked her in again. "What woke you up?" I asked her.

"I coudn't remember the shape of a butterfly's wing," she said.

"That's what woke you up?"


"Do you remember what did?"

"I was just enjoying the sounds that life was giving me?"

"When you were sleeping?"

"No, when I was lying here listening."

Then she fell back asleep.
