Moving on to a more pleasant topic...my daughter has been saying some cute things lately. I share them for any of my fellow writers who might need help writing dialogue for toddlers. Among her latest gems are:
"Mama, leave me alone. I can't play with you." - when I was trying to get her to stay with me rather than follow her father to the upper floor of the library.
"You Mama!"- when I was gently chiding her for her behavior in the library. (It was her choice to go there, yet she decided not to behave. Go figure.)
"Mom? Dad? I think I'm tired." - around bedtime.
"Ooh, banana! Share with Emily." - seeing her brother with a banana (yes, she did get one of her own).
She regularly says cute things. These are the only ones I can remember at present. I keep a file on the family computer of adorable things she's said so that I won't forget all of them. I figure it's the least I can do considering that, as the fourth child in the family, her baby book is practically barren of information.
That is all for right now. I'm thinking of posting a bit more often. Headaches are still plaguing me (though they are improving, and boy am I using plenty of parentheses today!).
Happy reading and writing.
