Skyler's funnies

Some funny (but mostly just sweet) things that Skyler has said lately:

After I brought her a separate spoon for her peas at dinner: “Well, you’re being an awfully good mommy tonight.”

The other day I was trying to hurry her up to get herself buckled as we were getting ready to pull out of the driveway.
Skyler: “Just a minute! You need to settle down.”

When I’m tucking her in after stories, for the past few nights, our exchange has gone like this, in whispering voices:

E: “I love you”
S: “I love you, too.”
E: “I’ll see you in the morning.”
S: “I’ll see you in the morning, too.”
E: “You are my best girl.”
S: “You are my best mommy too.”

Also, Sam and I are both sick with a nasty stomach bug. I know. Just what we need (and not even two weeks after the last sickness.)

Skyler has had a hard time dealing with the fact that neither of us has very much energy.

She said: “What is the matter?”
E: “I have a stomach ache.”
S: “Let me check.”
She puts her hand on my stomach.
S: “You don’t have a stomach ache. You are all set to go.”

But then tonight at bedtime, she folded her hands in prayer and said:
“I pray with my heart that mommy feels better the next day.”
