Amara has said some of the silliest and sweetest things lately. Sometimes it is the little things that are the best so I thought I would share.
Yesterday I ran over to the kids’ house to drop off something for her Mommy who was hard at work making apple turnovers! I had warned Jenna before I went over that I was looking truly attractive with my hair up and no makeup on! I mean my hair was seriously up! I had it in a ponytail and then clipped on top of my head with two giant clips and to make it even better I had clipped my bangs back! Did I mention no makeup? There will never be a picture of that! So, I’m standing in their kitchen talking to Jenna and Amara looks at me and says, “Grandma, what did you do to your hair?” Then you could see her freeze and panic for about 2 seconds and she says, “It looks really pretty. I like it!”
She is such a wise child!
Then there was the other day when I was trying to get Amara ready to leave for Tai Kwon Do, I sat patiently as she tied her first shoe. She had already tried putting her socks on while hanging upside down off her bed. Sometimes Amara just loves to clown around and see just how far she can push Grandma Kc. This was one of those times! When she finally got the first shoe tied and got the other shoe put on, she holds her foot up in the air towards me and says, “Grandma, will you tie this one?” I laugh and tell her “NO!” and give her the as if look that she knows means Grandma is not going to fall for this. In the typical Amara fashion she doesn’t even miss a beat and comes right back with “Well you can do it faster and we could be out of her that much quicker. I’m just sayin.”
You will be proud to know that Grandma did NOT tie that shoe!
Then there was the “Amara math” not to be confused with New Math! Grampy and I are always joking about who loves who the mostest but it was really funny when he and Amara got into a conversation over who loves who the most. Amara trumped Grampy with “I love you infinity two, infinity three, infinity four. Infinity infinity” until Grampy came up with, “I love you infinity squared!” Amara looks at Grampy and says “What the what?” He came back with “Infinity Cubed! I win! You don’t know higher math.” They giggle for a few moments and Amara says,
“Oh, I get it. I love you infinity heart!”
Best grandchild ever!
