That’s What She Said

Grace: “Elsa and Anna’s parents were dead ’cause they were violenced by a bad guy!”

Grace: “Jesus lives in our hearts! So when we get a checkup, he gets one, too… especially the stethoscope part.”

Francine: “Tell Dad what you did today.”
Francine: “With water… and colors…”
Sophie: “Ummm…”
Joe: “What did you dip in the water?”
Sophie (triumphantly): “Broccoli!”

Grace, when her foot fell asleep: “Mom, my foot feels funny! Like, inside, where the bones are… there’s a whole bunch of little things gettin’ in there!”

Grace, seeing the digital fireplace on the TV: “If I touch the TV, will it be hot?”

After I took out the overnight braids that we had left in her (normally straight) hair, she surveyed her crimped tresses and said: “My hair looks funny! It looks like yours!”
IMG_0278Francine: “We’re having sfinge.”
Grace: “YES! I love that! I had it at Petunia’s house one time.” (imaginary friend)
Francine: “Oh, really? Is she Italian?”
Grace: “Yep! She is!”
Joe: “Grace, where are Italians from?”
Grace: “Uh… we get ’em at the store. From Walgreens.”

Grace, singing Meghan Trainor: “Because you know I’m bottom bottom bass, bottom bass, snow travels!”

Grace: “I accidentally washed a ponytail holder down the sink… I think it’s gone forever!”
Joe: “Yep, just like that underwear you flushed down the toilet. We’ll never get them back.”
Grace: “Yeah, unless we flush ourselves down there to find them…”

After studying the ‘Save Wildlife’ label on the dish soap depicting a yellow chick, Grace decided: “Soap comes from ducks.”

Sophie, looking for a sock: “Where’s the other one?”
Francine: “I don’t know; I don’t have it.”
Sophie: “Maybe it’s in Ohio.”

Grace, yelling across the house: “Hey guys! Be quiet because Gemma’s sleeping!!”

Grace: “I named my baby ‘China.'”
Francine: “Which one?” (we have approx. 75 dolls in our house)
Grace: “I’ll go get her!” and promptly returns with a package of wipes.
IMG_3896Grace, with a set of Old Maid cards: “Will you help me set up this game? It’s called, ‘Old Lady Loses.'”

Sick Grace: “I’m just tired.”
Francine: “You can close your eyes and sleep.”
Grace: “Well, they just don’t stay closed very well.”

As we tried to coax Sophie into eating the dinner she didn’t really want, she emphatically said: “I just chewing!!” and proceeded to dramatically pretend to chew nothing.

Grace trying (somewhat unsuccessfully) to work through a tantrum: “Dad! I’m not crying! (she was) It’s just my body crying!!”

After complaining because I accidentally scraped my hand on something–
Francine: “Ow! That really hurt! I broke skin!”
Grace (unconcerned): “I guess we’ll have to take Mom to the hospital.”
