Conversations with Violet
Early Saturday morning, I just woke up and was on my way to the bathroom-
Violet: Mama, can I do Arts and Craps?
Me: Not now Violey.
V: Awwww! Can I paint?
Me: Maybe later.
V: Awww! Dammit!
Later that morning when the TV was going fuzzy-
V: Dammit! Stupid TV! Dammit!
Me: Violet, don't say dammit and stupid. They're not friendly words. Say silly TV.
V: Dammit! Silly TV!
Yesterday, after I stubbed and broke my toe-
V: Oooh! Mama you're toe is blue! That's so pretty. Can I have a purple toe? Can I paint my toe purple?
Also yesterday, when her nose would not stop running-
V: Dammit! Stupid nose is running!
Me: I'm sensing a pattern here...Violet, use this tissue.
V: No thanks. I have my shirt (lifts shirt tail and wipes face).
Me: At least it wasn't my shirt.
