Actual conversation with Lucy, as I am trying to wash my hands after changing poopy diaper #4 on the day:
Lucy: Momma, I have to tell you something. MOMMA!
(I finally turn from my handwashing to look at her.)
Lu: He is BOTHERING me.
Lu: HE! (She holds up a carrot)
Me: That carrot is bothering you?
Lu: No! That carrot is bothering HER!
Lu: HER!! (She holds up a different carrot)
Me: That carrot is bothering that other carrot?
Most conversations in our house (that don't involve Lucy, but also some that do) these days are held in Eddie-speak. Example:
Me: A daddy! A home!
(Look, kids, Daddy is home)
Joel: A daddy! A home!
(Hey everybody, I'm Daddy and I'm home)
Me: A daddy -- a dinner? A eat?
(Are you hungry for dinner now, Joel?)
Joel: A no, no eat!
(No thanks, I had lunch late; we can wait a while.)
Me: A clock! A wall! A up?
(Well, in that case, could you hang that new clock up on the wall now maybe please?)
Joel: A screwdriver! A gone?
(Dang it, where did I put my screwdriver?)
Just to make you all jealous... Lucy and I just made THESE little nuggets of heaven. Ohhhhhhmmm. A good!
