Playing Doctor

Eden and Leila were playing doctor.
Eden was the doctor and Leila was the patient.

Eden: "Let me listen to your heartbeat."
(Puts stethoscope to chest.)
Eden: "Oh, you feel pretty sick."

Eden: "Now I'm going to check your lungs."
(Puts stethoscope to chest.)
Eden: "Take a deep breath."
(Leila takes a deep breath and breaths out on Eden.)
Eden: "AH! Leila! You're lungs smell bad!"

The Piggy Bank

While dusting, I broke Eden's piggy bank.

Eden: "That was my favorite piggy bank!"

(Her ONLY piggy bank actually)

Eden: "I'm so sad that you broke my piggy bank."
Mom: "I'm sorry. I didn't mean it. It was an accident."

Later that night we had family scriptures and prayer which is followed by a story of her choice.

Dad: "Do you want mommy or daddy to read the book tonight?"
Eden: "Daddy."
Dad: "Okay, what book do you want?"
Eden: "Let's read 'Bert and the Broken Teapot' so we can figure out why mom broke my piggy bank."

Eating Dinner

For the past two days Leila's been a stinker about eating her dinner. She'll throw it on the floor, not eat it if I try to feed it to her, and throw tantrums.

But both nights Eden saves me.

Eden: "Let me try to feed Leila."
"Leila, here's your food."
(Leila opens mouth nicely and eats)
Eden: "Let's do an airplane."
(Leila opens mouth nicely and eats)

Leila loves Eden. She'll eat for no one else.


Sometimes I think "I think Eden has more friends than I do!"

Like tonight at Relief Society when we went to a lady in the ward's house and her son came down and said,

Will: "Hey, Is Eden here? I wanted to show her my snow cone machine."

Sometimes I think "How does Eden have so many friends?"

Like today at the end of preschool when everyone was playing and she calls everyone's attention to say,

Eden: "Hey guys! Just to let you know, I have leukocyte, toxoplasma gondii, and mononucleosis."

A Princess Prayer

Remind me to never let Eden say a prayer while in "princess character".

Mom: "Eden will you say the prayer tonight?"
Eden: "You mean Princess Eden?"
Mom: "....Sure...."
Eden: "Heavenly Father. Please bless my kingdom..."

Nativity Scene

I had Eden draw a picture of the nativity scene.

She drew the stable, a manger with baby Jesus, Mary and Joseph (laying on the hay because they don't have any beds), a sheep, and a giraffe.

And they are all wearing party hats because its Jesus birthday.
