Life from a little ones perspective!

I love the many cute things that toddlers say, and enjoy how they perceive things in life around them!

We were having a picnic lunch with friends, and Atalisa had a few grapes and chips left on her plate. I told her she needed to empty her plate before she ate the longed for rice crispy treat. Without hesitating she picked up the few grapes and chips, and one-at-a-time started putting them on my plate. I just started laughing! I guess she took me literally! She EMPTIED her plate! My little smart cookie! I had to define "empty"!

While we were driving, Atalisa who was talking to Bria says to me, "Mommy, she cute!" I said, "Atalisa's cute too!" She thought for a minute then said, "Mommy, you cute too!"

Aty hearing thunder, says matter-of-factly, "daaaangerous".

Putting Aty to bed the other night she said to me, "mommy, lets do 'Jesus Loves Me'." She then said "sing 'Purple and White'" I was thinking, "Purple and White, Purple and White...what song did I teach her that has Purple and White in it?" I then realized that she wanted to sing "Jesus Loves the Little Children"...

"Jesus loves the little children,
All the children of the world.
Red and yellow, black and white, {I guess since purple is her favorite color for the present it was "purple and white"! }
All are precious in His sight,
Jesus loves the little children of the world."

After we sang she said, "can you pet me?" I sometimes will pat her back as she goes to sleep. I had to laugh when she said "pet".

Aty while playing with the play food in her kitchen set made a plate of food for me. She took my hand and Bria's hand and said, "let's amen mommy ". Guess it's time to thank God for the food!

How I love them! They are so much fun, and are constantly making us smile!
