From the mouth of Chloe...

Chloe always has us chuckling about something she's said. Here's the latest:

  • Grandma Jill: "Are you a sweetie pie?"
    Chloe: "No, I'm Chloe Mae Andersen." Then a few seconds later, in a soft voice, "I'm not a pie."

  • Pointing at a zit on my face, "That's a big mole!" An honest two-year-old and pregnancy acne - 2 things you've just gotta love!
  • After convincing daddy to lay down next to her on the living room floor, Chloe said in an authoritative tone, "Go to sleep! Close your eyes! Don't open them again!" Then she kissed him on the forehead.
  • While banging on the piano, "I'm playing Chapsticks!"
  • "He touched the butt!" (A word for word quote from Finding Nemo - "butt" is actually supposed to be "boat"). Apparently Chloe has found the humor in this and repeats it quite frequently.
  • In the midst of a slight cough attack I asked Chloe if she wanted some water. She nodded, and a few seconds later said, "Actually, I would like juice! How about juice!?"

  • Many of you are familiar with the 'Clean up' song learned in primary and/or pre-school. In case you aren't, it goes like this: "Clean up, clean up, everybody everywhere. Clean up, clean up, everybody do your share." Here's Chloe's version: "Clean up, clean up, everybody else!" Manipulative child!

  • This morning after informing Chloe of our agenda for the day, she repeated back to me her own interpretation, which was: "Let's go to Dr. Baer's and get a sucker and THEN go to the store and get a cookie!" Funny how I never mentioned anything about treats!
You just can't help but smile when this little girl opens her mouth, even when it's something sassy.

Very sweet. Kya always says, "nice" from Nemo (when the birds say that after the explosion.) Plus she laughs when the bird is choking on the dock. "nice" I love the clean up song, that Chloe sings. Too funny!
