Talia: (singing) "If you're happy and you know it, put lotion on your legs!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Talia: (singing) "5 little ostriches jumping on the bed, one fell off and bonked his head..."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Talia: "Elias doesn't poot, he smells like butterflies!"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Talia: (telling a story) "...and they walked through a big dessert, that's a lot bigger than a little bitty one."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Talia: (to Ben after sitting where he had recently vacated) "When you sit here it makes the chair nice and warm!"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Talia: (to Mommy) "Does your back hurt?"
Me: "Yes."
Talia: "If you poke yourself with a safety pin it won't feel better... it'll feel badder!"
Me: "Um, thanks!?!"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Talia: (about turning her dolls head) "it's a lot hard but a little bit easy."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chel: "So what number is old?"
Talia: "15"
Chel: "So is your [8-year-old friend] old?"
Talia: "She's just a little bit old."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Talia: "Do you like it if I have toys?"
Ben: "Yes..."
Talia: "Why?"
Ben: "Because then you have something to play with?"
Talia: "Why does that mean I have something to play with?"
Ben: "This sounds like it's going to be a very circular conversation..."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Talia: "I have my own language. It's called 'Thé'. Do you want to learn some words in Thé?"
Me: "Sure, how do you say 'sun?'"
Talia: "pal-esal" and paper is "gam-estell-al"
Me: "Where does Thé come from?"
Talia: "It came from my voice..."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Me: "Talia, why are your dolls standing on their heads on the couch?"
Talia:"They just took a bath and now they need to be hung up to dry..."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ben: "Talia, what do you want to be when you grow up?"
Talia: "A baby catcher, like [the midwife.]"
