*this post is dedicated to Caitlin, gracious receiver of annoying emails from Grace
After a long complaint sesh about the full swings ...
Grace: well we can't just kick the other kids off the swings
Julia: welllll what about if we NICELY kick them off the swings? Is that a good idea?
Walking into the house after visiting Simon last night ...
Julia: Welcome home, Julia!
Julia: Thank you, house!!
99 times a day ...
Grace: please be patient
Julia: patient?? who is patient? what is patient??
While in the middle of yet another search for a sippy cup ...
Grace: did you find it?
Super Serious Julia: No I did not. It must be a mystery.
After it got way too quiet in the basement ...
Grace: what are you two doing down there?
Julia: oh, we're just banging out.
After I made a new changing table cover ...
Julia: ooooh now I'll never have to potty train again!!!
Following me into the bathroom ...
Julia: Don't worry, I'll just share your pribacy with you.
Meeting a kind nurse at the hospital while visiting Simon
Kind Nurse: and how old are you?
Julia: well I'm just wearing underwear, see? (shows)
After giving adorably pregnant Katrina an up-down ...
Julia: you have big muscles
While proudly showing off a tangible and pungent potty training accomplishment with a flourish of her hand ...
Julia: well well well what have we here?
When she had a very slight runny nose in the middle of the night when Simon was at work ...
Julia: my nose isn't working
Julia: I think I have the chokes
Julia: Maybe if I get up and read ten books I'll feel better.
Julia: Maybe if I get up and play for just 20 minutes I'll feel better.
Julia: I need some Bicks or some Baseline up in my nose
Julia: my nose is frowing up!!!
Mole-eyed Grace: good night, Julia
