..Sofiaisms, Walks, Parks, and.. Sharks?..

We have a lot of conversations on our walks.  A lot.  Honestly, half the time I can’t understand half of them.  Sofia has her own little language and stories and we discuss what seems like a million topics at once.  We go through them so quickly I have trouble keeping up some times.  Add in Gabriel, whatever he’s doing (which is mainly whining from budding teeth lately) and I’m completely lost!

Lately conversation has focused primarily on sharks.  I don’t understand why either.  We don’t live by them, or even remotely close to the ocean.  Either way, it’s an amusing topic that creates a lot of laughter and discussion.

The first time sharks entered the conversation was while walking home from a small park in the neighborhood next to us earlier this month.  We happened to see a bunny sitting on someone’s lawn, completely not moving and continued camping out even after we walked by.  Of course Sofia was excited and immediately wanted to approach it..

..Sofiaisms, day thirteen..

It’s been awhile since I updated a Sofiaism post.  I figure today is as good a day as any!  I won’t lie, since finding out about the pregnancy my scorekeeping of Sofia’s sayings has taken a major hit.  It’s kind of sad, but most of the time I’m too tired to whip out my phone and jot something down.  Or I forget what it was minutes later.  The joys of preggo brain!  Never mind being brain dead at work, I’m at home too (poor kid!).  Although there are SOME advantages to being pregnant, and these include:

  • I can blame things on the baby.  Like, IT wanted another glazed donut, NOT ME!  I can’t deny my unborn.
  • No more use to suck in the gut.  Just let it hang loose.  Never felt so free!
  • Excuse to lay down at work and sleep at lunch.  Only downfall, I cannot do this at my desk.
  • Free to eat what I want, when I want.
  • Comfy mat pants (for now at least 😉 )

Anyway, I digress.  It’s been a tiring two months but starting to get some energy back now, though I tell you it’s difficult some days with an active preschooler and full time work.  By the time dinner is over and I put Sofia to sleep, I’m ready for bed myself.  I may not go to sleep right away, but the temptation is there…

Running in the park…

I just want to SCREAM!

After analyzing a razor and asking what it’s used for…

Mom, I have hair on my legs.  I’m serious!!  I do.

On bathrooms…

The big bathroom are for girls and boys.  Sometimes Daddy uses it to shower, brush his hair, and cut his nails.

On ‘monkey-rides’ or as we call them, piggyback rides…

It’s easy Mom, you just put me on your back and I say, ‘giddy up horsey!’.  Like that!  See?
