Conversations with my Daughter

These are actual, honest-to-God conversations I have had with my two-and-a-half year old, Gorgeous Gal (GG).

GG: "I love you Mummy."
Me: "Awww.. I love you too."
GG: "Why?"
Me: "Cos you're sweet and adorable and beautiful."
GG: "I not Dora!!! I GG!"

Driving in the car, apropos of nothing...
GG: "I going to SeaWorld for my birfday."
Me: "Yeah, that's right, you are!"
GG: "Mummy come?"
Me: "Yes, I'll come."
Continues to list every single family member, and whether or not they are coming...
GG: "That man come?"
Me: "What man?"
GG: "That man, what his name?"
Me: "Uh, I don't know GG, who do you mean?"
GG: "He do the elephant walk."
Me: "Wait, are you talking about the guy from Play School?" (She watched it earlier that day)
GG: "Yeah, that man... he come to SeaWorld?"
Me: "Um... no GG, I don't think Rhys from Play School will be coming to SeaWorld with us." (More's the pity...)

GG: "It's windy outside today!"
Me: "Sure is, kiddo."
GG: "Why?"
Me: "Ummmm...."
GG: "???"
Me: "Well, there's umm.. air pressure? And it moves the air and stuff???"
GG: "... "
Me: "It's windy cos the clouds are dancing."
GG: "Oh, of course!! I lub dancing!" Dances off across the yard...
Me: "Sigh"

Me: "Do you love Mummy?"
GG: "Uh huh."
Me: "Why do you love Mummy?" (Thank you, I do enjoy shamelessly fishing for compliments from a child)
GG: "Cos you're squishy for cuddles!"
Me: "Oh..." (That'll teach me)



  1. Little kids are hysterical because they have no filter!

  2. I remember my mother being squishy, too. It was so nice to fit right in.
    Good one, GG

  3. Now that is just lovely, I would like Rhys to come to my birfday party too :)

  4. aww how sweet.. see little girls say cute things,, boy umm it has more to do with animals and bugs and stuff lol

  5. Kids say the cutest things!! I miss my girls being so sweet and innocent.

  6. Beautiful! I so remember these conversations with my own babies and now I have them with my grandbabies. These are the things that make life so very good. Thanks for posting this wonderful post.

  7. I love these kinds of conversations. Your daughter sounds like such a sweet girl!

  8. Gorgeous! There's nothing I love more than I love than little chats with my girl (the other's not quite up for chats yet).

  9. Just found your blog as we were both tagged by a friend for the honest scrap award. I chose to peruse your blog, and admit I see a similarity in our messages. I like your approach. i too have kids and enjoy the messages I get from them. I think a few of our most recent blogs sing similar music through different mouths. I look forward to more. If you are in my neighborhood online...please stop by!

  10. Too funny! Squishy! I love it. Kids are the best. You've got a great one.

    Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

  11. Hey! Squishy for cuddles is SO much better than just plain squishy!
    She's adorable, by the way!

  13. Hi Quixotic, What great conversations you have with your daughter. How lucky you are and how lucky she is to have you as a mother.

    Sorry I deleted my comment before because I had a typo! Oops!

  14. hahahaha I can't wait until Monte can talk and I can fish for compliments from him all day. How wonderful!! Though I shall never ever let him learn the word squishy :-)!!!

  15. Tee hee, GG is lovely. This is what makes me keep having babies....

  16. Kids are classic! I have to say that Rhys seems like a good guy - I reckon we may be able to get him there! :)

  17. love little kids conversations, fabulous!
    it would be great though if Rhys were to go to Seaworld...mmm
