Eden: "Can I have some juice please?"
Dad: "How about CATERPILLAR juice?"
Eden: "DAD! I don't eat caterpillars! I'm not a chameleon!"
(we all laugh)
Eden: "I'm not a chameleon cause I don't change colors!"

Side note: We recently got a book from the library about a chameleon that eats caterpillars.

50 Miles an Hour

Eden was taking a bite of food, but it was too hot. She quickly put the food back on the plate and said,

"It's HOT! Like 50 miles an hour hot!"

I have no idea where she learned that.

Dove Deodorant

A while back Eden saw me using Dove deodorant and asked what I was doing. After explaining what deodorant was she asked about the bird on it.

A few days later she saw me using the deodorant again and said,

"I want to smell like a dove!"

Later she saw a commercial for MEN's Dove deodorant and she said,

"Look! Even boys want to smell like a dove too."

50 Nifty United States

One of Eden's new favorite songs to sing is the states song (naming all the states). It usually goes something like this....

"Alabama, Alaska, Arizon-e-a, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Alaska, Arizon-e-a, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Alaska....."

Then I get her back on track by saying, "Connecticut"

"Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Alaska, Arizon-e-a, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Alaska...."

Then one day I tried to sing it all so she could get past those first few states. I got stuck for a second at New Jersey and was reviewing the states in my mind so I could figure out what came next.

Then Eden chimed in,

"New Mexico!"

And of course she was right.

Design Star

During nap I watched HGTV's Design Star on the computer.

Eden woke up and joined me.

Eden: "I like that one!"
Mom: "Oh yeah?"
Eden: "We should paint my room purple....
And the kitchen green...
And the family room blue...
And your room black."

We've got ourselves a Design Star in the making.

Leila and Aninals

Yesterday we went to Cabela's. Today we went to the pet store. The whole time Leila pointed at all the animals (real or not) and VERY LOUDLY said things like,


Needless to say, she LOVES animals.

Questions and Answers

We read a question out of our question jar....

Mom: "What is the funniest thing that has ever happened to you?"
Eden: "When daddy popped my toes!"

Mom: "What do you want to be when you grow up?"
Eden: "A mommy." (although she often says she wants to be a nurse)

Mom: "Do you want a car or truck when you get older?"
Eden: "Truck."
Mom: "What color?"
Eden: "Purple."

Mom: "What is the best thing to ever happen to you?"
Eden: "When Leila was born."
