It’s been so fun to watch Star really come into her own – she makes us laugh on a daily basis with the hilarious things she says.
Our neighbor and dear friend found out her first baby was a girl and Ella was over the moon about the announcement. A month or two later. . .
Hannah: Ella, I have some terrible news.
Ella: Oh no! What?
Hannah: The birds ate all our peaches off the tree.
Ella: Oh. Whew. I thought you found out your baby was a boy.
Janssen: You are my sweet little baby.
Star: No, I am a BIG girl.
Janssen: How did that happen?!
Star: With MAGIC. And my magic wand.
Star: Are you righteous?
Janssen: Well, I’m trying to be.
Star: Oh, so you’re not.
After a long conversation in the car about the walls along the freeway and why they are stair-stepping up but never getting taller
Janssen: And so that’s why there is a change in the tallness of the wall.
Ani: Don’t you think you should have said, “height”?
Playing “Would You Rather” at dinner time
Bart: Would you rather have two billion dollars and no friends or lots of amazing friends and just a regular amount of money.
Ani: [considering] Well, you could just BUY friends.
Bart comes into the kitchen
Bart: What’s that bad smell?
Janssen: Is it this hummus?
Bart: YES! It smells like a poopy bum.
Star: [from the next room] There’s no poopy bum in this house!
At dinner, Star takes a big bite of soup
Star: This soup is YUMMY! It’s going to nourish and strengthen me!
On the way to school one morning
Ella: I think I want to be a teacher when I grow up.
Janssen: That would be fun.
Ella: Do teachers make a lot of money?
Janssen: Not usually.
Ella: [exasperated sigh] Well, what job can I do where I make a lot of money and get to write on a white board?!
Doing a Cinderella puzzle together
Janssen: Who is this?
Star: Dat’s the wicked stepmother.
Janssen: Do you have a wicked stepmother?
Star: No! I have a NICE stepmother.
We’re watching The Lion King for movie morning. After the part where Mufasa dies:
Ani: [shocked] THAT was the surprise?
Star comes in wearing Ani’s little high heels
Star: When you’re wearing these high heels, you’re a fancy lady.
Star: Will you put a fancy lady on the counter?
Star bursts into tears over some minor thing
Star: [abruptly stops crying] Oh! “You’ll never see me cry!”
