Every day I need to write down the hilarious sayings from my little Colombian princess. Here are a few from this week.
Me: (asking my dad) Do you know why the flags are at half mass?
Nora: Maybe they’re broken.
Nora: Mom, do you shrink when you are a grandma?
Me: Yes, you get a little bit shorter.
Nora: I’m going to be a mini grandma!
We were all riding in the truck pacing for my son on his bicycle (who rides behind the truck to practice going faster with drafting.) We went down the same stretch of road twice and then Nora said, “We should let him go first this time!”
Riding in the back seat of the truck with the windows down, Nora yells, “I can’t breathe. The air is in my face!”
Nora: Mom, do you know how to dance like a princess?
Me: I don’t think so.
Nora: All you do is point your toes and make your arms go like this (slowly puts her arms out)…. but you also need a prince.
A really loud motorcycle went by our car and Nora put her hand to her chest and lamented, “I think that broke my heart!”
Nora helped me make a salad from a bag kit. She mixed it all up and then asked me, “Do you want me to put on the drussian?” (I think that might be Russian dressing???)
Nora caught a whiff of her sweaty brothers after street hockey and said to her sister, “Boys stink!” Larisa said, “Girls stink too.” To which she flabbergastedly replied, “REALLY? I did not know that!”
Her bedtime prayers make me want to giggle. She tells God that she hopes he has a good day. She thanks him for the food and then explains to him that she knows it’s not time to eat but she is thankful we have food. She often says, “Thank you God for me.” I love it!
