Jill in the morning

Here are two conversations I had with Jill this morning.

Jill: "Mommy, I need some candy."
Mimi: "Jill, we are going to have breakfast first."
Jill: "Mommy, I need some Valentine's chocolate. I had a bad time."
Mimi: "You had a bad what?"
Jill: "I had a bad time. I need some chocolate."
Mimi: "Oh. I'm sorry about that, but we are going to have some oatmeal first."
Jill: "Mommy, I had a bad day. I need some chocolate candy."

Jill: "We were just sitting here talking."
Mimi: "Oh, you and Danny were talking?"
Jill: "No. Danny, me, and Elmo were talking."
Mimi: "What were you talking about?"
Jill: "We were just talking about Joseph Smith."
Mimi: "Oh. What did you say about Joseph Smith?"
Jill: "I said Joseph Smith's little brother was Jacob."
Mimi: "Oh. What did Danny say?"
Jill: "He said, 'I don't like Joseph Smith.'"
Mimi: "I see. What did Elmo say?"
Jill: "He said, 'I do like Joseph Smith.'"
Mimi: "And then what did you say?"
Jill: "I said, 'I like cereal more than Danny.'"
Mimi: "Oh, okay."

Then during breakfast, Jill was singing this song. I couldn't tell what she was trying to sing, so maybe she just made it up.
"Open up the Book of Mormon
And you'll see
Count the pages
And there's Joseph Smith again."

When she was done singing that song, she started singing "Castle on a Cloud" from Les Miserables. That is one of the songs I sing to her before she goes to bed. Aww. :)

The joy of Oreos

And a little bit of Jill in the afternoon!

Jill had some friends over today to play. After they left, Jill was talking about one of them. Jill said (and names have been changed to protect the innocent), "Maria sat on the potty, but she didn't wash her hands." I said something like, "Oh, that's too bad." And Jill replied, "Yeah. You should send her an e-mail." I asked, "You want me to send her an e-mail?" And Jill responded, "Yes. Send her an e-mail and tell her to wash her hands." I hope Jill doesn't mind that I just blogged it instead!


  1. At least she knows that chocolate is for when you have a bad day. That will come in handy.

  2. So funny! It must be so fun having her be so vocal and talkative. I love the things that come out of kids' mouths.

  3. Valentines Day is all about the candy for Jill and Ryan. I put some chocolates in a plastic heart for him, Brady and Zach and before I knew it Ryan had polished off his and was working on Brady and Zach's! I love hearing the funny things Jill comes up with. She is so clever!

  4. Oh yea, and this is Brooke- not Zach. :)

  5. haha, I love it. :) Can't wait to hear what else she has to say!

  6. Lol I cannot stop laughing! She is hilarious!
    My kids also think I should just send an email whenever something comes up. Either that or "can you text her?" haha.

  7. That Jill. Where does she get this stuff, truly? I can't wait to have her come be funny in my house. :)
