The Things She Says

I hope to not forget the things that Morgan says that make me laugh… in an effort to remember them I thought I better blog them or else I’m certain I will forget. A couple days ago I got her all settled on the barstool and put her lunch before her. It was every kids dream meal: mac n’ cheese, a hot dog, sun chips and apple juice in a really cool Barney cup… well this is the look I got. I couldn’t imagine what on earth could be wrong with what I gave her, so I asked, ” What’s the matter Morgan?” And she replied, “Nothing’s wrong Mommy, I’m just thinking!” 🙂

As we pulled back into the neighborhood on our way home from Disney World, Morgan asked Justin if we were almost to the hotel yet. And then we explained that we were almost home not at Disney World anymore. Then she demanded Justin to, “Put my window down!” And Justin said, “That’s not how we ask, what do you say?” She replied, “Put my window down, SIR!” 🙂 We’ve been working on “Yes, Mam” and “Yes, Sir”… and she’s getting better! I usually get “No, Sir” but hopefully we’ll have it all straightened out soon!

One of the funniest things she’s ever said to me was several weeks ago. I woke up before her and had a few cups of coffee and we all know what that will do to your breath…. well, when I went in her room to change her diaper and get her ready for the day the first thing she said to me was, “Mommy, what’s that I ‘mell (‘mell is her word for smell)?” I said, “I think it’s probably Mommy’s breath, I just had a cup of coffee.” She so eloquently replied, “Nope, it’s poop, I think I ‘mell poop!” There’s no doubt it was my breath so from here on out I will never drink coffee and leave the house without brushing my teeth and chewing gum! 🙂

On a side note, I took Paiger Rager (the wounded soldier) to the pediatrician this morning. She ran a high fever last night and of course the guilt in me was certain she had a high fever because she fell off the bed (isn’t that typically a side effect of falling off the bed?). So, I had to swallow my pride and take the wounded one to the dr and confess that her face is all scratched because I left her unattended on our bed. Well, the doctor assured me that the fever was in no way related to her falling off the bed (whew!) but did inform me that she has an ear infection and sinus infection. She gave us a prescription for Prevacid tablets for acid reflux which is what they (the ENT) think is causing her “chronic sinus congestion” and a prescription for Amoxocillin for the ear! And also recommended Neosporin for the nose…. “Thanks, Doc… but I’ve already been doing that!” Hopefully she’ll be on the road to recovery soon!
