another country heard from....

When I was little, my siblings and I loved to go climb on mom and dad's bed in the morning.  Often, one by one we would filter into their room and each time someone else came in, my dad would say, "Oh, there's another country heard from!"  It is such a vivid and sweet memory for me and we have been saying it to Caroline for a while now.
So to fill you in on what comical things Caroline has been saying, here is another country heard from....

The other day we were looking at a picture of the Little Einstens.  The Eifel Tower was in the picture and my mom said, "Caroline, that's the Eifel Tower in Paris.  Your mommy and daddy have been there."
Me: "Yea, and you were in my tummy when we went."
Caroline: "Yes and I said, Get me OUT of here!"


The other day we were riding in the car and I was looking through my mail as my mom drove us all around.  All of the sudden a big furry brown bug appeared on my hand and I was flailing my arms all around to get it off and shrieking at the same time.  After the bug was gone and I was not hysterical anymore Caroline grabbed my hand and said seriously, "Mommy, you are so brave."


For a while now as we tuck her into bed and give her a kiss, she grabs us and gives a very strong hug with her little arms and whispers, "You're the best mommy/daddy in the whole wide world."

I feel like I need to start keeping a journal of all the hilarious and charming things that come out of that child's mouth. I can't even remember them all anymore!

I just love to hear what comes out of her mouth - usually funny or it melts your heart. Love that little girl.
