conversations with Rooney / 10

This post is sponsored by Uncommon Goods.

Rooney keeps us laughing over here! Here are a few things she's said recently that I just had to write down...

"Mommy, can you kiss it? Because your lips are really nice."

"Only mommies or daddies can have babies in their tummies. I can't because I'm not really bigger. But Jude is bigger! He's like a mommy and a daddy." (Jude is 5.)

"High five, Mommy! You found a new park!"

"Mommy, sometimes I don't see you and I miss you because I love you."

"Sometimes kids don't eat food all."

Rooney: "My gum's all gone."
Me: "Oh no, did you swallow it? We need to spit it out when we're done."
Rooney: "Ohhh. I gotcha." 

Me: "What do you want to pray for tonight?"
Rooney: "God! And friends. And marshmallows!"

Me: "Will you go to the grocery store with me?"
Rooney, on her iPad: "Nope. We don't have time to go to the store."

Rooney: "Daddies don't cry!"
Me: "Yes they do."
Rooney: "When?"
Me: "When they get owies or when they're sad. Do mommies cry?"
Rooney: "Yeah."
Me: "When?"
Rooney: "When the baby comes!"

Rooney: "Can we go to the Science Center?"
Me: "Yeah...someday."
Rooney: "It is some day!"

Me: (grunt)
Rooney: "What?"
Me: "Oh, I'm tired and my tummy is really full."
Rooney: "And you have a really big baby in your tummy."

Me: "What is your favorite food?"
Rooney, after thinking about it for a while: "I always really like treats."

Rooney: "You count to 20 and I'll go hide!"
Me (because I'm lazy): "I want to color."
Rooney: "We can't have time to color right now!" 

Me: "Everybody's toots stink a little bit."
Rooney: "I don't!"

"My pull-up keeps pooping."

"I'm gonna be a Rooney-mom when I grow up!"

"You're my best mommy forever!"

Rooney: "Why is my name Rooney?"
Me: "Because that's what mommy and daddy picked for you."
Rooney: "I want to change my name. I want to be a Emma!"
Me: "Oh, I'm sorry, we picked Rooney."
Rooney: "No fanks."

"I'm not growing up very well. Jude is growing up."

Me: "Can you please help me set the table?"
Rooney: "I sure can!"

"Daddy, you wanna come change my poopy?"

"One day, in a great big city, there was a really big girl who went on the potty all by herself, and it was me!"

Rooney: "I'm thirsty! I'm thirsty!"
Me: *hands her water*
Rooney: "Thanks, lady!"

Having trouble pedaling her trike: "Maybe it needs new batteries."
