Songs in the Key of Life.....

Overheard from the backseat:

EFP: Mommy what's that?

M: It's a pond with a fountain!

EFP: A pond with a fountain? Are there duckies?

M: Yes, there probably are some ducks.

EFP: Mommy what's that?

M: It's another pond with a fountain.

EFP: Oh My God! That IS another pond with a fountain all right!
*I unintentionally left this part out earlier - so this is the rest of the conversation

M: Did you hear this at school? From your teacher or a friend? Who says Oh My God, EFP?
EFP: I do Mommy
M: EFP, do you know who God is?
EFP: Yes
M: Who is God?
EFP: Daddy (I can assure you having been married to him lo these 10 years - he most certainly is not.... but it is nice that she thinks so.)

Same Backseat - different kid!

EBB: Mama?

M: Yes, EBB

EBB: Mama, EBB So Happy!

Overheard in the kitchen:

EFP: Mommy, chocoate pudding makes me so happy!

From "elsewhere" in the house at around 7:00 AM EST:

EFP: Let me see if I got dis. If I put my pee pee in the potty I get a chocolate? Poopy I get 2?
M: Yup! That is right!!
EFP: I needa go pee pee now!
M: Yea! Let's go!

5 minutes later 7:05 AM EST

EFP: Mommy, if I needa go pee pee again - do I get anudder chocolate?
M: Yes
EFP: I needa go again

5 minutes later 7:10 AM EST

EFP: I needa go again

5 minutes later 7:15 AM EST

EFP: I needa go again

Seriously - she has figured out how to buck the system for chocolate!

Heard in the bedroom:

M: It is night-night time EFP...
EFP: I not go night-night tonight
M: Oh, no night-night at all?
EFP: No. I not.
M: You are not sleepy?
EFP: Yes, I sleepy. But I not go night-night!!
M: Can you tell me why you don't want to go to bed?
EFP: Yes. It not fun. I needa play and do pee pee for chocolate.

A few minutes later, same bedroom:

EBB: Night Night Mama
M: Night Night EBB! Love You!
EBB: Love YOU Mama! EBB love family and Mama!
M: (brushing tears aside) I love you EBB and I am glad you are my family!

You need to either sell a book with these "words of wisdom" or take your show out on the road! Thanks for sharing a little view of the world when children are in it. We're still waiting for our little EFP from China...
