So awhile back you got a glimpse of some of the things Stella has said. Here’s the latest:
Stella: Mom, Mamaw and Pops are 1000 ways.
Me: 1000 ways? What do you mean?
Stella: You know, far. They live in Kentucky.
Two days later she sees a picture of Union Terminal on the TV.
Stella: Mom! It’s the museum! It’s in Kentucky, right? It’s a 1000 ways too.
Me: No, it’s in Ohio.
Stella: Oh, that’s only 100 ways.
So now every distance is currently measured in 100 ways or 1000 ways.
Scene: Bedtime. Picking out books to read.
Stella: Mom, can we read “ch” 2?
Me: “Ch”? What’s that?
Stella: You know, “ch” 2. Daddy read “ch” 1 last night.
Me: OH! CHAPTER?
Stella: (with a smirk of realization) Yes, chapter 2 of our new library book.
Me: Got it.
And for those of you who are still with me, this one’s the best. We went to the zoo on Saturday (pictures above) and while I gave Henry a quick snack Andy ran the girls down to see the gorillas. This conversation occurred without me, but she repeated the entire thing word by word, so I know it really happened.
Stella: Look dad, at all of the gorillas. And that one is the momma gorilla.
Andy: How do you know it’s the momma gorilla?
Stella: (serious as can be) Because it has the biggest bottom.
Argh. That’s what I get for marrying a man with a small tight ass. And damn my love of sweets.
