Conversations with Lila
Lila: Do you know that caveman?
Me: What caveman?
Lila: I think his name is Fred.
Me: Caveman Fred....Fred Flintstone?
Lila: Yeah, him. Why is he always saying "Yibba Yibba Yibba"?
Me: It's "Yabba Dabba Doo!". It's his happy noise. Kind of like saying Woohoo, or Yee Haw!
Lila: Oh. That's a little weird.
Lila: I don't get Miss Piggy.
Me: What do you mean?
Lila: Well, why is she always in a dress and wearing make up and jewlery and stuff.
Me: Because she's very fabulous.
Lila: Pigs belong on farms.
Me: Miss Piggy is way to pretty to live on a farm!
Lila: Pigs aren't allowed in the house. They live in mud.
Me: I wouldn't let Miss Piggy hear you say that. She'd get you with one of her karate chops - Hiya!
Me: Really. She can be a little mean sometimes.
Lila: I don't like her.
Me: I have to work today, so you're going to go to Nanny's after school.
Me: Now when you come home from school I want you to make a healthy choice for snack. Something good for your body.
Lila: Ok, I'll have some chips and some juice and two cookies.
Me: Those aren't really healthy things. How about some apples, bananas, peanutbutter toast, a bowl of cereal would be a good choice.
Lila: Ok. I'll have a bowl of cereal. But can Nanny chop up a chocolate bar and put that on top?
*Ed. Note- If asked, my mom would totally chop up a candy bar and put it on her cereal. No questions asked.
