"Os-ca-puss" = octopus
Jack to me: "You make the yummiest things in the whole wide world." (I'll take it.)
Maggie heard a bird outside and was talking to it. In her conversation, she said something about us taking the birds home - the tree. (We had a tree cut down last summer)
Maggie asked what a noise was. I told her I thought it was her brother in the basement. She said ; "I 'on't wike him. I'm ma' at him. See my eyebrows? I'm mad."
Before Christmas, I took Jack and Maggie to work with me while I helped with the party we had for our students. I took "The Little Mermaid" on video so they could watch it while I worked. It was a big hit. They're very into the music, so we've almost worn out our soundtrack on CD. Maggie's favorite song is: Poor Unfortunate Souls - a duet by Ariel and Ursula. She's shortened "Poor unfortunate souls" to "porch-u-nut souls".
This is not going to come out right, but let's see if I can capture the essence.
Jack: "I know! I can make my own super hero."
Jack: "Can I have something with holes."
Mom: "Maybe after dinner." (obviously not in the mood to discuss what "something with holes" means exactly)
Jack runs downstairs and gets his cape, as well as Maggie's.
Jack: "I will be Jack Kirby."
Maggie: "What's me .... what's my name Jack?"
Jack: "Star Child."
Maggie: "You Jack Kirby! I Star Child!"
I think she asked again what her name was. It was just cute.
