While eating her snack at Thursday’s Strong Start class…
Gracen: (while gently patting my shoulder) Sanks (thanks), Mama taking Grae Grae school.
Just after getting into the car the other morning…
Gracen: Grae Grae in seat, Mama drive. Mama seatbelt too.
Mama: Yes, Grae. Everyone has to wear seatbelts.
Gracen: Safety first! Wear seat belts! Car open doors, Grae Grae no fall out!
While biking up a long hill Friday afternoon…
Gracen: No Mama (*insert loud panting noises here*). No tired, Mama! Bike faster!
On the drive to the pool this weekend…
Gracen: Mama and Grae wearing baving (bathing) suits. Papa wear baving suit?
Mama: Well, not really. Papa wears swim shorts.
Gracen: Mama and Grae Grae girls.
Mama: Yes, we are.
Gracen: Papa boy. Papa’s different.
