Kids say the darnedest things

Bria is growing up so fast, and all her new words are amazing! A couple of conversations we had today...

I was in the kitchen and she climbed up on the table, where she ripped the ribbon on a Christmas gift. I said, "Oh darn it, Bria!!" and took her down from the table, then put her on the couch and turned on a movie to try to get her to rest.
She said, "I didn't mean to."
Ha! That surprised me, and I said I know she didn't mean to, but it was still rest time.
"I wish you'd be nice to me."

A little while later, we were watching a movie and I was sitting next to her on the couch.
"What Daddy?" she said. I kind of laughed to myself, because Daddy is at work!
Then she repeated it.
"What Daddy? I can't hear you Daddy. What Daddy? Mommy, listen." (cups hand over ear to signify listening)
Maybe Daddy is her imaginary friend!

And she picks stuff up so FAST!

Last night we were watching some goofy sketch comedy thing after the other kids had gone to bed, and there was sketch where a guy was standing outside an office "squishing people's heads" from a distance. Bria started saying, "I'm crushing your head! I'm crushing your head!" and copying the action.

We have a couple of foster kids staying with us right now who have been really into paper airplanes lately. Yesterday she saw them making them, and today she was sitting at the table, folding paper to make her own.

Sleeping in her big girl bed

Bria was such a big girl last night -- she slept upstairs in her bedroom, in her Dora bed! The night wasn't completely seamless, but she did so well. We are super proud -- and so is she!
