kira speak

just remembered this and don't want to lose it forever.

Kira's speech path came up to me in the hall while I was doing PTA stuff and said, "I have to ask this. Do you play the tuba?"


SLP: Well, Kira swears that you do. We were reading a book that had a character playing a tuba, so I asked if anyone knew someone who played the tuba. Kira said, "Mommy!" And I said, "Your mom plays the tuba!?! Really?" And Kira said, "Really." with a smug little smile and subtle nod of her head.

(I cannot do this justice in print, but I know the exact look the SLP was referring to. And I know that Kira knows that I do not play the tuba. I also know that a certain little girl likes a little extra attention during her group speech sessions.)

jacksonism and kira speak

Jackson: Mom! I had the strangest dream last night. There was this INSANE toy store where they said they only had toys never seen before. Only I HAD seen them before and so had Hansel and Gretel. At least, there was a brother and sister there. They might not have been Hansel and Gretel. I don't know. I didn't ask.

Kira (at bedtime): Knock Knock
Me: Who's there?
K: sleep
Me: sleep who?
K: sleep night night

Heading to the car in the Target parking lot on a 102 degree Tx afternoon:
Me: I'm hot
Kira: Me, too
Me: I'm tired
Kira: Me, too
Me: I'm hungry
Kira: Me, too
Me: My toots smell like a rose garden.
Kira: mmmmmmmmm

Just this second:
Kids bickering behind me:
Me: Do y'all need to be separated?
Kira: Yes.
