Bella-isms

These are some of my favorite conversations with Bella that I've had since she turned 5 (over the last 6 months). It's very hard to keep a straight face sometimes, because Bella is very sensitive about people laughing at her (no matter how we explain it!)

Bella: "Mom, how come you didn't want to be anything when growed up - like a doctor or a princess or something like that?"
Mom: "I did - I wanted to be a mom"
Bella: "But you're just a plain mom"
Mom: "No, I'm not a just a plain mom. I'm your mom, and Sofie's mom, and Reed's mom"
Bella: "But we're just plain kids!"

Often when I am getting Reed dressed I comment to him that he is "The skinniest boy on the block" because at his last check-up he was 97% for height and 20% for weight.
Bella: "Mom, what does skinny mean?"
Mom: "Oh, it just kinda describes your body shape"
Bella: "Well are you skinny?"
Mom: "What do you think?"
Bella: "Well, I think you're kinda fat"
Mom: Pointing to my body "Oh no honey, THIS is skinny. This is as good as it gets!"

Bella: "Mom, have you ever died?"
Mom: "No, have you?"
Bella: "No"

That's hilarious! Enjoy it while it lasts- when she's about 8 or 9 she'll be on the phone all night with her best friend saying those funny things to her!

We had some crazy conversations, didn't we!

I am still laughing about this. I can hear her saying everything and I can picture the look on her face. I love it so much.
