Lolo Gets Carried Away

Standing at the patio door~ "Mom, Mom, Mom... there was something grey in your garden!"

Making breakfast in the kitchen~ "Oh yeah, what did it look like?"

"I don't know, it was grey."

"Was it a squirrel?"

"I dunno, maybe a squirrel, maybe it was a bunny!!"

Walking over to patio door~ "Where was it at?"

"Well... you can't see it now."

"Bummer, let me know next time you see it and we'll figure out what it was." ~walking back to kitchen.

"Sorry Mom, guess I got carried away."

"What do you mean you got carried away?"

"Ya know, like really Really excited!~~~ Carried Away!" ~shrugs at me with the look of DUH MOM and walks away.

What happens when a 5 year old learns the meaning of a new phrase? She looks for a reason to use it! Was there ever really a mysterious grey thing in the garden? Who knows! Is she really proud of the fact that she used 'carried away' in a sentence...Thrilled!

There was a time when my daughter started every sentence with "Actually." And, my son thought every little thing was a miracle!

Oh, she is so cute!!

Gracie used the same phrase the other day when she got caught spray painting sticks out in the garage...I like Lolo's use of it better. Less mess.
