I walk into our bedroom to Annika yelling at my husband's computer.
- What are you doing?
- Trying to wake up the computer.
- Annika, can you sing the Masha song (referring to a song from the Russian cartoon "Masha and The Bear")
- But it's not pleasant to sing the Masha song right now.
(not sure what was up, because it sure was pleasant 10 minutes ago and about every 5 minutes before then:))
- Mom, I want some raisins.
- How about I give them to you after dinner?
- How about you give them to me now? I think that would be a good thing.
Looking at her name written on her sippy cup:
- Oh no! It's not going to be able to be my name any more. The 'I' is erased.
One night she was refusing to eat her dinner and kept pushing the plate away.
- Annika, you will eat the dinner I made and you will be thankful.
- I will not be "spaseebah"full.
(spaseebah is thank you in russian)
One morning as I put her shirt on...
- You messed up my eyebrows mommy!
- Mom, what am I wearing.
- You have a pull-up now, but let's go pee on the potty.
- I have no reason to pee on the potty.
- Give me a kiss.
- But I gave you a kiss yesterday. That's enough.
This next one is not so much funny, but so sweet:)
One evening we were talking about Greg's mommy and daddy (Oma and Opa). Annika asks me:
- Where is your mommy?
- She died sweetie. I hope she is with Jesus.
- Awe. Are you sad?
- I was at first, but I'm not any more. Now daddy, you and Leo are my family and I'm very happy.
A little bit later she gets hurt and as usual wants me to hold her.
- Hug me, mommy. Hug your family.
I just love that girl!
