Magic trick

When we moved, we brought most of our things to the new house, but some of the kids' toys were still at the old house.  Rosie referenced something that was still in the old house, and my mother asked her what happened to the old house.

Her answer: "It disappeared."

Things that happen while the Rosiegirl is left unattended

When I came out of the shower, she was sitting on my bed painting her toenails.  She actually didn't do a bad job...

His style

Zack's hair was looking particularly wild after he woke up one morning.  When Rosie saw him at the breakfast table, she said, "Mom, Zacky's hair is grumpy!"

It's getting to be about twilight, and we are in the car driving home. Rosie has been occupied with drawing in her colorin book, but she looks up says, "We'd better get home to the big house. It's getting late."

There are lots of Poppies and lots of Grandmoms!

Rosie has two grandmothers and one great-grandmother who are living.  My grandmother called on the phone, and my husband answered, saying, "Hi, Grandmom."  Rosie overheard this and asked, "What kind of Grandmom is it?"

I know two children

A lot of times when it's time for bed or dinner or whatever, I'll say to the kids, "I know two children who need [to go to bed, to eat dinner, etc.]"  This morning they were in their pajamas, and Rosie came over to me and said, "I know two children who need some clothes!"

Jingle Bell

Rosie's first experience with a cake pop went as follows...

After dinner, Rosie asked for her "special treat," which was a cake pop.  She thought it looked like a bell, so she held the stick with the cake end in the air and shook it like a bell, singing, "Jingle, jingle, jingle, jingle..." repeatedly.  We warned her that this was not a good idea.

Of course, as she was shaking the cake pop, the cake end flew across the room.  Rosie stared after it with an astonished look on her face.  When her father said, "Uh-oh, Rosie, what happened?" she answered, "I jingled it!"
