We set up the Christmas tree last night with lights, but no ornaments. Hana Kate asked this morning, “Mommy, are we going to put some penguins on the Christmas tree? And maybe some other ingredients.” (For the last year, she has continued to get penguins and snowmen mixed up. It is quite funny! As were the ingredients=ornaments.)
The other day, Hana Kate was in the middle of playing and turned to Daniel to say, “Daddy, I need to go potty. We’d better RUN!” Thankfully, the made it in time.
(We really could share a lot of funny potty quotes, but…) The other day, Hana Kate and I were outside raking leaves. After we’d finished, we went to go ask Daniel to come see our work. When he came out, he asked Hana Kate if she needed to go potty. Normally, she says no, but that time her response was, “Yes. I want to go on the potty tree.” Daniel told HK about the “potty tree” once while they were out far away and no real potty in sight. Well, that has (unfortunately?) held her fascination for months. She would much prefer trees. 🙂
From the backseat, while riding in the van. “Daddy, can I play with your phone?” Daniel: “Sure, just a second.” Hana Kate: “Do you want to have Keren pass it to me?” Yes, she has figured out my name, but thankfully she’s learning that she calls me Mommy.
Hana Kate heard “Jingle Bells” at some point when we were out. Apparently, she thought it was talking about her Jenga blocks (which she uses as building blocks), because later in the day I heard her singing, “Jenga blocks! Jenga blocks! Jenga blocks!”.
