“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder without any such gift from the fairies, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in." - Rachel Carson

Retta's Ramblings

Two year old talk at its finest:

  • "I have a joke: What do bears eat?" Me: "I don't know, what?" Retta: "Macaroni and cheese!"
  • "Mommy, I'm obsessed with apple juice!"
  • When I had to leave to take Rowan to our Mother-Daughter group (for girls Rowan's age): "I want to go! But I a daughter too!"
  • Me: "What would you like for breakfast today Retta?" Retta: "Poop." Me: "That is disgusting, and not a food. What would you really like for breakfast?" Retta: "Lipstick." Me: "Also not a food." Retta: "How about fish?" 
  • "That person has an adult mouth."
  • "Would you like to come with me to Milkacara?" Me: "What is Milkacara?" Retta: "It is the land where I go to get treats. There are silver candies there and the lions guard them. And there are acorns."
  • Her favorite made-up song to sing, "No we don't run away from our mommy in a store, no we don't run away from our mommy in the store..."
  • "I'm a Snuggle Duck!"
  • "I feel great. My sneezes went away up into the sky."
  • "I love butterflies in the beautiful sunshine!" 
  • "I have a special idea. I don't have magic but I have an idea. Let's make a cake!"
  • "I'm just getting my excitings out!"
  • Me: "How much does this rock cost?" Retta: "It costs ten goldens."
  • One night she asked for a turn to say the blessing at dinner and said, "I'm thankful for my family and Chocolate World!" (after we visited Hershey, PA)
  • "We have to clip our toenails because we are going to North Carolina."
  • "Mommy, I understand your eyelashes."
  • After a lady at the Y said "Hi" to her, I said, "Retta, can you say hi to the lady?" and she screamed, "NO! I CAN'T SAY HI, I'M TOO SHY!!"
  • "I will get you with my icy magic!" (pretending to be Elsa from Frozen)
  • "Hold you Mommy, hold you!" -when she wants to be picked up
  • "Shmellows" = marshmallows
  • "Ooo-pee-sie" = Oopsie
