Mary Poppins... Timelord?

Me: "Wow, how do you think Mary Poppins gets all those big things in her bag?" Judith (matter-of-factly): "It's probably like a TARDIS or something." I love her.

Mommy's Biggest Fan

Ruthie was holding the bag for me as I was harvesting kale, and she started chanting "Go Mommy! Go Mommy!" It's nice having my own cheerleader! Gardening is definitely my sport.

Once Upon a Dream

Judith (randomly): "You know, I was shy once. We were having hot chocolate with marshmallows, we were inside and there was a girl with straight hair. I think I was 3 or 4 or 5. Or maybe it was just a dream..."

Flattery Works Sometimes...

Judith (coming in to my room long after she should be sleeping): "Mom, you're the best mom in the world. And do you know what the best moms do? Come and hang out with their kids in their beds!"
