Lilyism

February 8, 2007

Lily had a whole bunch of marbles, and she decided to create her own container for them.  She struggled with scissors, tape, cardboard, and glue to create a box-like structure with a base and cover before declaring “I need help! This keeps falling apart!”

Daddy comes to the rescue, bringing his capentry skills to the table.  “OK, let’s see what we’ve got here.  Show me your bottom.”

Lily backed up to him and dropped her pants.

(She still doesn’t understand why we laughed and laughed)

Several hours after a conversation about a scene in a movie where a little girl’s appendix was removed….

“What if my stomach hurts so much that the doctors have to remove my independence?”

Lily, explaining the medications that her dad takes every morning (due to kidney transplant) to her younger brother:

Daddy has to take the medicine to make his body work. You see, a long time ago, Daddy’s gills stopped working…

Setting the scene:  Lil and her dad were jumping and playing in a huge pile of leaves.  Lily dives in and hits her head, and emerges from leaves rubbing her noggin.

Ouch, Daddy!  I hit my head!  I hope I don’t have amnesia.  Wait a minute, amnesia is a pretty big word, and if I had amnesia, I probably wouldn’t remember that word.

I punished Lily yesterday, she wasn’t allowed to go to a birthday party.  She was still whining about it this morning:

Lil:  Mommy, what’s the punishment for today?

Me:  So far there isn’t one.  It’s a fresh, new day.

Lil:  When there is one, will you tell me ahead of time so I can weigh my options? 

Did I mention she’s 5 years old?

While trying to explain the unexpected death of someone close to John:

Lily: Was he old and his body quit working?

Me:  No, he had an accident.

Lily: You mean he peed in his pants and died?

While gazing up at John from the shopping cart:

“Hey, Daddy….I think there’s a spider stuck in your nose.  I can see its long black legs up there.”
