Setting: this afternoon after picking Belle up from school.
Me: Did Halle tell you that she got a new car?
Belle: Yes. (then after thinking about that for a second) Where's Ms. Nikki's old car?
Me: They probably gave it to the store.
Belle: What are they going to do with it?
Me: Probably sell it to a new person.
Belle: The new person wants to buy the yellow car?
Belle: They want to drive it?
Me: They sure do.
I can't believe that I'm already having conversations like this with my little Annabelle! She's growing up so fast!
Conversation 2: Ms. Nikki's Alligator
Pre-story: The Disney Channel has a new show called "Can you teach my alligator manners?" which has a really catchy tune. A couple of weeks ago, Annabelle did something nice or something and Nikki said to her "You could teach my alligator manners." (alluding to the show, of course). I got it and thought it was funny, but I'm not sure that Annabelle knew what she was talking about.
Setting: Arriving home from the gym tonight, we're all starving and looking for what we should have for dinner. I suggested something Annabelle wasn't interested in.
Belle: No thank you, Mommy.
Me: I'm so happy that you have such good manners!
Belle: Like Ms. Nikki's alligator?
Me: (taking a second to realize what she's talking about) Yes Baby, that's right!
I don't know if Nikki has mentioned the alligator to Annabelle again since that conversation a couple of weeks ago (Nikki?), but apparently it stuck with Belle and she thinks that Ms. Nikki really has an alligator that needs or has good manners. :) I thought that was so cute!
