Lil Tidbits (from a not so lil girl)

As you know by now, Lily is a constant source of entertainment for us. She is always saying things that make us smile - and lately I have been blown away by how mature she is getting. She'll say something and I'll laugh, and she'll say "Why are you laughing at that mom? You say that all the time." So, I have to explain to her that for some reason when I say it, it's not funny...but to hear a 4 year old say the same thing - it is pretty amusing. When she cocks her head and says "Oh, for goodness sake!" I can't help but chuckle.
Here are some more examples of her recent (maturing) tidbits:
-She and my niece were playing in the other room and Logan (my 8 year old niece) came to me and said "Aunt Nikki, Lily says we need to compromise...what IS compromise!?" So, I told her to go ask Lily what it meant, since it was her idea afterall. A few minutes later Logan returned saying "Lily says it's kinda like sharing when one person wants to do one thing and another person wants to do something else." So, I just kinda smiled and said "Sounds good to me, Logan, now why don't you back and see if the two of you can compromise." Logan smiled at me and asked "How does Lily know this stuff!?" (I later found out that Winnie the Pooh had taught our girl this particular nugget.)
-She was playing school in her playroom and ran out saying "Mom, c'mere, I wanna show you something." So, I went and saw that she had written the numbers 1 thru 12 on her chalkboard. She told me she had been practicing. "With who?" I asked. She pointed to a chair full of her dolls and stuffed animals.
-We were playing school together (I was the student and she was the teacher)...she told me her name was Teacher Lucy. Then she tooted. Without skipping a beat she looked directly at me and firmly said "Students, teachers pass gas."
-The other night after reading her devotional she said "Mom, I need a bible. I can't listen to what God says to me if I don't have a bible." (P.S. She has a bible.)
-Yesterday I was getting her in her carseat and she pushed my hand away saying "I can do it by myself, mom. I'm a big girl now." She got herself situated in her seat and proceeded talking "I remember exactly where my locker is at school, so Monday when I go I'll put my stuff in there all by myself, cuz I heard my teacher say she wants us to be independent." I was thinking about how big my girl is getting...overhearing her teacher at orientation tell one of the other moms that she wanted her students to become more independent - she had taken it all in and decided that she was going to show her teacher just how independent she is. wow. But then she interrupted my thoughts by saying "Um, mom. I still need you to do my buckle." Phew. I guess I'm still needed for something. (for now, anyway!)

OH that is hilarious about her saying "teachers pass gas"!! She is just too cute for words. I really need to be recording things that Mallory says as well because like your Lily, Mal is our source of entertainment around here. I almost dread the day they grow out of saying these cute things. It's just too much fun, ya know? I loved reading all of the things Miss Lily has been saying. She is SMART!!!!

kris said...

I went from amazement at how incredibly smart she is to cracking up, to feeling my heart swell at her innocence- needing her bible and still needing mom to buckle her in. I swear if my little girl is half as precious as your Lily, I will be the luckiest mom in the world. :O)

What a precious doll Miss Lily is!!! I just love your sweet girl!!!
My Mom began a book of "Chelsi sayings" when she began talking...and it is many many pages of little funny, sad, intelligent, witty....etc...things that Chelsi said and did throughout the years...I am so so glad Mom did this...because I never took the time to write them down...and over time...these little precious sayings fade...

Thanks for sharing your sweet girls with us!!!
Hugs and love to you!!!

Janet said...

Yes, unfortunately, teachers DO pass gas.....I think I would have keeled over laughing if one of my kids had said that. Plus, I would be a VERY bad student....:-)

kerri said...

Writing her numbers from one to twelve, way to go, what a clever girl!!

She is one smart young girl.Sound like she is (4)? going on 25.
I still say they make kids smarter then in my day.But there was not nearly as many teaching aids as there are now.No Seasame Street or computer games either.
Geee I am old!!!!!!
Need to go get my Geratal and BenGay for the pains.LOLOL!!!

Tracey and Mike said...

It's scary (and kinda sad) how fast they grow up.

Much Ado said...

What a little gem your lovely Lily is! She makes me laugh ("Students, teachers pass gas!")and I also stand in awe of her nuggets of wisdom (the bible one). Wow, your little girl must do you proud. :)

Mommy Spice said...

Oh my goodness, I'm still laughing at the "toot" part. They listen to everything and take it to heart. I love watching S.G. grow and mature...but it makes me a little sad sometimes. Where are our babies???

Have you seen Mamma Mia yet? Have you heard the song Slipping Through My Fingers? Ugh!!

Tiffany said...

OH my word Lily is a riot.... I am laughing my head off about the pass gas part.
She is just too cute!!!!!!!!!
What a little angel she is!

Beverly said...

Rhea Anne said...

Wow. She is so sweet and bright. You need to write all those down for her to hear when she gets older. I love reading your blog. Girls are too funny. Can't wait to get my hands on ours one day soon. Blessings, rhea -by the way I am a teacher and I thought the pass gass was too funny!! hee hee

Jewels of My Heart said...

Oh Nikki! she just melts my heart... what a sweetheart. And yes, so smart and very mature.... after all.... everyone passes gas! Ha!
lol

Gee Gee said...

Could she be any brighter or funnier? I just don't think so. I can't wait to hear about how much she loves school and "tooty" teachers. Funny!!!

Laura Nipper said...

Lily is so precious and really says the cutest things. Morgan just started saying don’t laugh at me. Its so hard because she says the funniest things as well. Glad Lily still lets you buckle her in her seat. :)
