Mina(2) picked up a pile of paper clips off of the desk today. I was fairly certain she had never seen paper clips before so I told her they were paper clips.

She looked at me very seriously and said, "They are not paper clips, they are earrings."

Then she went around the room trying to get one of her cousins to let her put them on their ears.

Good for the soul

Ari walked in tonight while I was making dinner and said,

"Mom, can I have some cheese?"

I said, "sure" and got her some cheese.

She said, "Cheese is good for the soul you know?"

I laughed.

Then she said, "Mom, can I have some water?"

When I handed her the water she said, "Water is good for the soul too."

Then she walked out of the kitchen and in her best opera impersonation sang, "I love you."

Inagural Perspective

While Mina and I were watching the inauguration she said some pretty funny things:

While looking at a picture of the White House she said, "What a pretty castle."

While Aretha Franklin was singing she said, "I love her hat."

I think I have a princess on my hands.
