Conversations with Olivia.
I mentioned this in my NYE learnings + epiphanies - sometimes we wonder if Olivia is truly hilarious or if all 4-year olds are funny in general. The stuff she comes up with kinda shocks me further proving that she will one day be way smarter than I and probably rule the world.
Which is good because I will for sure be exhausted by then! Here we go...
Lola: Mom, are those peanuts spicy?
Me: Yes. Very.
Olivia: Because God made them that way Lola. Gosh!
Olivia: Can I watch TV?
Nanny: No, it's time for nap.
Olivia: That's not fair. What if I'm a princess ballerina?
Me: Olivia, put your toys away. It's time for bath.
Olivia: Ok, Momma Johanna. (giggling)
Lola...talking and trying to play with Olivia.
Olivia: Lola, don't bother me with the details.
Husband: Hey kiddo!
Olivia: Hey grownup!
Olivia: Dad, will you marry me? Will you be my prince?
Husband: Yeah, of course I will marry you...just make sure it's ok with momma.
Olivia: (staring at me; waiting for approval)
Olivia: Mom, do you have a beauty mark?
Me: Yes, I have lots of them. See right here (pointing to my cheek)
Olivia: Is my beauty mark gonna grow bigger and bigger like yours?
Me: (silence...should I have removed that?)
Me: Olivia, it's time for dinner. Please come to the table...for the last time.
Olivia: You don't love me anymore. You just like me.
Me: Huh? Where would you ever get that? I love you to pieces.
Olivia: If you say so.
Olivia: Mom, can I put on some eyeshadow?
Me: Sure. (feverishly getting ready, most likely running 15 minutes behind)
Olivia: Yeah! I want to be a pretty princess like you. Now, where's my statement necklace?
Me: Olivia...do you know I think you are beautiful?
Olivia: Yeah. Everybody says that.
And most recently...while sitting on the couch reading a book
Olivia: Boom! Crash! The sound of my heart...the beat goes on an on and on and on...
