Conversations with Julia

17 June 2013

After I built a tower of canned goods ...
Julia: good job wittle Grace! 

After getting into a screaming match with Bash over a doll ...
Simon:
Julia, you need to learn to share with Sebastian
Julia: okay
Simon exits the room
Julia:  Bash, you need to learn to share with ME

and earlier in the week ...
Simon: Julia, you have to share with Bash
Julia: But I just want to share with me.



While getting her dressed ...
Grace: will you hand me that shirt over there?
Julia: um, excuse me?
Grace: 
Julia: I don't see a shirt - just a tank top
Grace:  

After dinner ...
Grace: no more food tonight, that ship as sailed.
Julia: but what KIND of shit was it?

Three steps into a twenty step walk to the car ...
Julia: sigh this is SO many walks
Grace: 

On her affinity for sugary chewy gummy bear vitamins after she fell and "skimmed" her knee ...
Grace: do you think you're going to make it?
Julia: break from dramatic screams ... I just need a bitamin to fix it 
Grace: okay
Julia: sniffle well, two bitamins sniffle two of the pink ones

After spilling an entire canister of formula on the sly she came to me with her confession ...
Julia: I made a mess
Grace: okay, where?
Julia: it's not my fault
Grace:
Julia: and it was not an accident

After she watched Theo squint into the sun in the stroller as I put a hat on him ...
Julia: if it's too bright for you baby Theo you can just go back in your mommy's tummy
Theo:
Julia: okay? okay.

a tender moment shared ...
Grace: I love you Julia
Julia: And I just love to watch Dora

I caught her cradling a very fragile ballerina figurine from my grandma ...
Grace: please go put that back where you found it
Julia: but she's so happy to see me!


  
While watching her crawl into a cupboard ...
Grace: What are you doing?
Julia: just going on an adbenture
Grace: oh, cool
Julia: yep. and I WON'T be careful. 

While reading a book about Christmas ...
Julia: And those are snowman balls?
Grace: snowballs, yes. 
 
After raiding my purse and dramatically unwrapping a tampon ...
Julia: here's your wipstick, Bash

As she walked into me very stupidly and optimistically trying on an old pair of (too small) swimsuit bottoms ...
Julia: Oh! Is that MY wittle swimsuit?
Grace: Get out

And per Sarah's request (and I only ever aim to please up in here) a 48 second clip of the Magic Huckles ... (don't mind her awesome hair day - she gets it from me)

  2. Thank you for sharing this brilliance; a special thank you to Julia for recognizing and sharing an important application of Magic Huckles re: bananas. And I think she's right not to share the Magic Huckles with Bash. My 28-year-old bro still cries the tears of a Magic Huckles-less existence.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Where does she come up with this stuff? I'm dying!

  24. Kids are so hilarious. The sharing one reminds me of what my daughter told us when she was Julia's age, "I'm so nice. I share with myself all the time!"

    The swimsuit one was the one that brought me to all out lol-ing. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. OM to the G, Grace, I laughed so hard I cried! This is the best conversations with Julia ever!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Love this series of posts so much. She is something else and I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  27. The video did not disappoint! Thank you! It exceeded my (high) expectations. And I love Julia's honesty..."no, I don't share."

    And ha! Snowman balls!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Julia is hilarious. I hope my future daughter is half as entertaining as her.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh, I died!! You always save the best for last, and the swimming suit comment was straight up HILAR. She da bomb.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Gabriel and I have watched this video over and over again. Every time I go to comment he says "no, stay on her please." Finally he said "huh, I think I like her more than Claire. She has huckles."

    Thanks for the laughs!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh my gosh, dying. So hysterical!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Now I just feel like a bad mother because my daughter is growing up without Magic Huckles. Such a deprived childhood...

    ReplyDelete
  33. Julia, you always know just what to say!

    ReplyDelete
  34. My husband enters the living room and asks "what are you watching?" (even though the TV is turned off) I answer "conversations with Julia" and inmediately read to him my two favorites, the snowman balls and the tampon one. I can never thank you enough for these :D

    ReplyDelete
  35. Best Julia Post Ever. My three year old son got into a box of tampons once and when I came into the bathroom, I found they had all been unwrapped, taken apart, and lined up like torpedoes.

    ReplyDelete
  36. She and Ella so need to be friends.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I HEART Julia <3 <3
    Wow your kids are adorable! You should have at least 5 more. Then write a book: Conversations with little Pattons. I'll buy it!!

    1. Of course there should be 1 chapter dedicated to daddy Patton - he says the darnest things too.

  38. Are you kidding me? This was the best yet.

    ReplyDelete
  39. CONVERSATIONS W/ JULIA ARE THE BEST.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Ahh Haha! I love these conversations! I'm going on an adbenture too... and I am NEVER careful! But the tender moments... Oh Grace, you are already for teenagers!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Adorable, as per usual! Easton watched the magic huckles video a few times. Each time, he joined Julia in the dance portion! :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. oh my gosh seriously. She needs her own comedy show - I love how sure she is about everything!

    ReplyDelete
  43. It's as simple as that, little theo, just climb right on back in the uterus.

    When I read Julia's grasp of vocabulary and context, suddenly Jordan's pointing out to me if there's a "hop" (a cop, actually a useful little trick she's acquired) is not the intellectual feat I'd given her credit for.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Best ever! Too many of these are my favorites!

    ReplyDelete
  45. my faaaaaaavorite!!! Julia, keep em comin! :D

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hilarious! Lil' Miss is starting to get that 'tude going on! I know it's funny but not funny....but my favorite is the swimsuit comment. She is a hoot! Thanks for sharing the video, too :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Snowman balls is HANDS DOWN the winner!! Although I did laugh about the swimsuit, too. But only in a sympathetic and mutually supportive way.....! :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. hahahahhahaha!! You really make me chuckle! (chuckle is such a lame word I know but it's exactly that kind of laugh). I wish I knew Julia in real life. I would love to babysit her - I would have so much material to laugh about (in a nice way) then.

  49. Love your conversations with Julia. I can totally relate to her version of sharing, I have a girl and a boy very close to Julia and Sebastian's age. My daughter has pretty much given me the same sharing means others sharing with me, right?-line. And yes, so sassy and witty at the ripe age of 2 1/2! Oye! Will I survive the teen years?

    ReplyDelete
  50. I absolutely loved this post! Laughed the whole time. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hilarious as always. That Julia always brings down the house.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Your little girl is such a talker!! Mine is 2.5 and isn't nearly as verbal as Julia. I can't wait for these funny convos to begin in our house! Adorable! Just happened upon your blog - love it!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Laws! I love her!
    Snowman balls, LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh my, I CWL and SWS and apparently SIRAWNIDETL ("cried with laughter," "shared with spouse" and "starting inventing ridiculous acronyms when normally I don't even type 'lol'"). That's how funny your offspring is. Holy.
