at 3 1/2, eleanor has proven she is my most favorite person to talk to. each conversation is nothing short of entertaining and full of thought and wit. i love being her mama.
“i was a little girl once. i was two.”
“maybe he left his listening ears at home…” referring to samson when he wasn’t listening to mama.
trying to wake eleanor up one morning, she replied while rolling over, “ten more seconds…..” already such a teenager.
“my name starts with an E, but it also starts with an L. because ELLLLLLLeanor. see what i’m talking about?”
“look out for that boobie!” referring to a buoy we almost hit while kayaking at lake tahoe.
“samson, you’re my best favorite little boy brother ever.”
“i need to take my panda bear with me today because i want to show him the WHOLE WORLD.”
after i said something to her with an english accent, “that was very good spanish, mama!”
me: “do you need to use the potty before we leave?” eleanor: “no, i think i’ll just use the potty tomorrow.”
eleanor: “i speak spanish, so the ducks were speaking spanish to me.”
me: “oh! what did they say?”
eleanor: “quack quack!”
me: “what does quack quack mean in spanish?”
eleanor: “it means, ‘go faster!’ it also means, ‘hello.’ “
“mama, i sure love being your sister.”
