This Morning's Conversations...
About 7 o’clock I heard Phia saying she had to go pee so I told her that she should just get up and go. She said, “Okay, I do know where the bathroom is.”
But I got up anyway to turn the lights on for her and make sure everything went okay. I handed her some toilet paper when she was done taking the worlds longest pee and she said, “Thank you.”
Then we went back to her room and I laid down with her and we cuddled up. Phia giggled, “Oh gosh, your moustache hair just went up this nostril and, heehee, it tingled!”
Phia told me her feet weren’t covered so I adjusted the blanket and we had the following conversation:
Phia: I love you Daddy
Daddy: I love you too. I love you the most.
Phia: I love Mommy the most.
Daddy: Oh, I love Mommy too.
Phia: Well, actually, I love mommy and daddy the most. I love mommy and you a googolplex. Actually, I love you both infinity.
*From there the conversation somehow turned to a discussion of gender appropriate colors*
Phia: Someone at my school said there are girl Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles but I said there are only boy TMNT’s. Are there girl TMNT’s?
Daddy: I don’t think so but I guess there could be.
Phia: She said one of them wears a purple mask.
Daddy: Oh, well that doesn’t mean he’s a girl. Boys can wear purple too. There are no such thing as boy or girl colors.
Phia: Yeah, I like pink but I also like blue. Black is the darkest color I can think of.
*And this led to dinosaurs*
Phia: Dinosaurs are black or they can be brown. The only thing I know about Tyrannosaurus Rex is that they are green and they have tails and big teeth.
Daddy: And they have short little arms.
Phia: I didn’t know that. How can they eat people with short little arms?
Daddy: With their mouths! But actually, people and dinosaurs didn’t exist at the same time so they didn’t actually eat people.
Phia: Then what did they eat, meat or something?
Daddy: Yes, they ate small dinosaurs.
Phia: Ha ha, it must be really hard to find small dinosaurs!
