Conversations With My Daughter: The Oh-My-Goodness-She's-Growing-Up-Too-Fast Edition
Lily (talking about visiting her 5 year old cousin Aliana who lives in Maine): We jumped on the bed! And we had cheese!
Lily (sitting down next to Daddy who's about to watch something on TV): Let's watch something else. (leans in and whispers) I like Diego.
Lily: You not big, big older. You big, big Mommy.
Lily (sobbing): You need to cuddle me Mommy. I can't cuddle myself!
Lily: I'm sorry Mommy. I not mean to put that in your way.
Lily (chewing on an apple slice): I will choke on this.
Mommy: No you won't.
Lily: I won't?!...Oh.
Lily: I'm very, super hungry.
Lily: Kiss me all over Mommy.
(I do and she quickly wipes my kisses off her lips)
Lily: Cry Mommy.
Lily: I want a chocolate. I'm so very hungry.
Lily (staring at a pot soaking on the stove): What are you cooking bubbles for Mommy?
Lily (looking at me very seriously from under her brow): When I hurt my finger again I will be very upset.
Lily (calling from the other room while we're playing hide and seek): Mommy where are you?!......I can't find her Reuben...I think I lost her.
