Conversations With Julia – Part 4

More gold from Julia…

A few days ago, I had given Julia and Kaitlyn their vitamins. They love it; Sharon or I can just say “Who wants vitamins?” and they jump up and down and run to the kitchen.

Anyway, I give them their vitamins, and remind them to say “Thank You.” Most of the time, they are good about it, but they had forgotten that night.

Julia and Kaitlyn: Thank You.
Me: You’re welcome. I want my girls to be kind.
Julia: Kind?
Me: Yes, kind is to be nice to other people.
Julia, thinking for a few seconds: I’m not kind… I’m pretty.

At that point, it struck me that we’re raising a diva…


Conversations With Julia – Part 3

Julia is on the potty, and Kaitlyn is playing in the sink with a soap container. Kaitlyn drops the container in the sink and says, “Oh no!”

Julia, Kaitlyn, and me: “Oh no!”

We go round and round a couple times, saying “Oh no!”

Then, out of nowhere, Julia says, “Mr. Bill!”

I haven’t seen those Mr. Bill commercials in several months, so either Julia has either seen it recently, or has a really good memory.

Conversations With Julia

This took place last night. Julia was having a tea party, and Sharon and I were sitting at the (play) table in her kitchen (in the living room).

Julia: The A and the T and H all broke!
Me: They all broke? Oh, no!
Julia: Yeah… it was an awful scene.

At this point Sharon is laughing uncontrollably on the floor. I’m laughing. And Julia is looking at us, wondering what in the world is going on.

I came to find out later that Julia was referencing a WorldWord episode, where a hat broke.

Conversation with Julia

Kaitlyn has just pulled out the plug to the computer, knocking out all the work Sharon was doing on editing some pictures…

Sharon: No, Kaitlyn! That was bad!

Kaitlyn walks away. Julia comes over to see what the commotion is. Sharon points out that Kaitlyn pulled out the plug from the wall, and that’s bad.

Julia: Oh my goodness!
Julia, to Kaitlyn: Don’t do that, K-K! That was very bad! Very, very bad! You don’t do that!

I had to turn away to laugh.


Conversations with Julia

I’m sitting in the car with Julia and Kaitlyn, waiting for Sharon to come out of the store.

Julia: Look daddy, look!

I turn around and look at Julia. She’s holding a booger on her finger.

Me: Oh Julia, let me get a tissue for you.

Julia: No daddy, I eat it.

Me: No, don’t…

And Julia eats it.
