Today, I am being featured on the baby name blog Appellation Mountain with the story of how we named Scarlett and Sosie. A big thank you to Abby Sandel for showcasing us!
And now some funny things Scarlett has said lately:
The morning of Scarlett's birthday. We are looking for the comb.
Me: "Scarlett, what did you do with the comb? Did you take it with you into the living room?"
Scarlett: "I don't know."
**Looking, looking, looking. I find the comb under the blanket on my bed.**
Me: "Nevermind, I found it."
Scarlett, watching me comb my hair: "Mommy, I want the comb. I want to take the comb with me."
Me: "No, honey, I'm using it right now."
Scarlett, making an angry face: "But I want to take it with me!"
Me: Sigh. "No, Scarlett, I only asked if you 'took it with you' when you went into the living room. You can't take the comb anywhere. It stays in the bathroom."
Scarlett: "But I want it!"
Me: "No. It is staying in the bathroom!"
Scarlett, throwing up her hands: "Aargh! I give up!" She stomps away.
This morning, Scarlett is eating her cereal. I am on the computer. WonderPets is on.
Scarlett: "Mommy, can I say 'boat'?"
Me: Huh? "Uh, yeah, you can say boat."
Scarlett: "But I can't say 'shit.'"
Me: WTF? "No, honey, you can't say 'shit.'" The penny drops. "You can say ship. Ship, you can say." I over-emphasize the "puh" of the P.
Scarlett: "Okay, Mommy."
I'm sure there will be more. Give her time.
