Kayla is my child who has always had a very quick wit. She's a funny person, and is definitely a yellow personality. This means that conversations in our home are generally amusing on some level.
For example: "Oh-my-gosh-I-love-Kenna-so-much-and-I-really-have-to-pee!"
Or, the other day when we were all driving in the car, with Kayla at the wheel:
Violet: "Your driving is really good now. You're just like mom!"
Kayla: "Only more sexy!"
Or the morning I was driving her to the bus stop, and passed a sign announcing a Cottage Meeting. She asked what one was, and I started explaining it to her. She interrupted with:
"Oh! I thought you were going to say it was a church kind of meeting. You know, where the ladies would say, 'I think maybe it would be best to have the prayer second instead of first, and it would be a wonderful idea for everyone to bring a treat because everyone likes them, and now let's all go make some casseroles!"
I wish I could put her voice changes/inflections into the written word. It's just too funny. :)
This is the same child, who at age 4, told me, "I have SO many thinks in my head! There must be a googol of them." I love it when her thinks come spilling out her head and right out of her mouth. :)
I've told her that the "mother's curse" applies to her-- I hope she gets her own mini-me so that she, too, can experience how much fun it has been to have a child like her.
