I told Charlotte how much I appreciated how kind she was to Calvin today, how good it made my heart feel to see and hear her being so loving to him.
Charlotte, smiling: “Yes. I really, really love him. I used to say, ‘No, I don’t want a little brother.’ But now, I kind of wish we had even MORE Calvins in our family. Because I love him so much.”
Charlotte: “My ear hurts. Normally I don’t hear anything when I do this” (covering both ears) “but now I can hear a muffled trumpet sound.”
I showed the kids the Desolation of Smaug Hobbit trailer. Charlotte: “Is that a real dragon at the end, or a fake one? Maybe it’s fake but someone is pulling it with a string…”
Charlotte, talking to Evelyn: “Can you IMAGINE the world without salt, milk, and butter?”
Sad truth Calvin just realized. He spies a pack of Twizzlers on the counter and asks to have some. I say no, they’re for later.
Cal: “Yes. For later, when I’m sleeping.”
Calvin, calling: “Daddy! Where are you? I’m wearing your shirt!”
Charlotte: “You know the saying about one person actually being two people inside?”
Me: “No. I don’t.”
Charlotte: “Like, how one day I like eggs, and the next I don’t. Or sometimes I want to play with hamsters, but other days I want to play with worms.”
Cal: “Me too! I can see through my nose!”
