Here's another dramatic moment brought to you by Eden. (These have been happening a lot lately.)
(Eden playing in nursery.)
(She runs up to me.)
Eden: "Mommy, I need some water or I'll DIE!"
Mom: "Soon they will be cleaning up then they'll have snacks and water."
(Play, clean up time, snack time)
(Eden holds up her sippy cup and yells across the room to me.)
Eden: "MOM! THEY GOT ME WATER SO I'M NOT GONNA DIE!"

Eden and Leila were having a hard time sharing. So, I took a toy away from both of them.
I re-explained why I had to take it away and then said, "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit."
Eden looked at me with tears streaming down her face...
"I'm not throwing a fit. *sniff sniff*. I'm just traumatized."

After all the sicknesses a while back, Eden was into playing doctor. That's when she learned that when you are sick you "drink fluids".
Today she said:
"Mom, I'm sick.
I have T-Gondii.
(nickname for the virus, toxoplasma gondii)
I need to drink more fluids."
Since our "sick days" Eden's has also said things like:
"Mom, I need some fluids."
"Leila wants a drink of fluid."
or my favorite was when she said...
"Mom, I want a drink of fluid....like MILK fluid, not water fluid."

Everyday this week Eden has used her last week's nursery lesson against me.
My mom decided to take us to ice cream and I was joking around with Eden...
Me: "Maybe you don't want ice cream. Maybe I should just eat it."
(Eden gives me a serious look)
Eden: "Mom, in our nursery lesson we learned about sharing. You need to SHARE the ice cream and not eat it all."
She's reminded me to share (anything she wants that I have) many times this week.

Eden and Leila came with me to Relief Society. We were cutting out papers and I gave Eden a paper and some crayons to color. She was sitting next to our friend, Leslie.
Eden: "We're moving to Colorado."
Leslie: "Yeah, I heard!"
Eden: "My mom's gonna miss you when we leave to Colorado."
Leslie: "OH! I'm gonna miss your mom too."
(Eden pauses to think...)
Eden: "Mom...Why ARE we moving to Colorado?"
It'll be sad to move away...
