5-3 is 2 in case you you change your mind

I came down from changing Grayson's diaper and Bella is in the kitchen "cooking waffles" (all pretend).

"How many would you like Momma?" (I love that she calls me Momma).
"I will have 3."
"Well, I have 5 so you can have that many (showing me her 3 fingers) but if you change your mind there is still 2 left."

I don't know about other 3 year olds, but I think Bella is a genius for knowing that!

A Couple of Whiles

Bella: "Mom are you going to stay home for some whiles?"
Me: "Yes, I'm going to be home for a while."
Bella: "A couple of whiles or one while?"

Love her!

Conversation with Jesus

Bella never ceases to entertain and amaze us with the things she says.

Tonight Frank and I were driving with Bella and telling her that it was our anniversary and that we got married today. She says to us, "That was before I was born when Jesus told me, 'Isabella you are a pretty girl and I'm going to send you to live with Frankie and Holly."

This warmed Frank and my hearts. I don't know where she heard this but the way she said it made it sound like she had really had that conversation with Jesus and she remembered it - who knows, maybe she did.
