Emerson: "Mommy do you like when I sing?"
Mommy: "I love when you sing!"

Mommy: "And in the morning when the sun rises comes up, we call it sunrise."
Emerson: "But, I call it the morning time."

On a family walk:
"Let's run this town!"

Emerson: "Daddy will come outside and you go in-gide (inside) okay?"

Emerson: "With my energy...."

To Brennan:
"Things are more fun when I'm around."

Emerson, in her car in the driveway, playing Sonic:

"My darlin' would like a strawberry movie (smoothie)". (To Mommy) "You be the roller gater."

"Daddy, we're going to solve this plob-lem. Mommy knows eh-zatly (exactly) where things are!"

Emerson: "I'm always careful, Mom."


Mommy: "Are you sure you want the whole pear? How about half?"
Emerson: "No! Whole!"
Mommy: "I don't think it's very good for you to have the whole thing, how about..."
Emerson: "No, whole!"
Mommy: "Fine."

(minutes later)
Emerson: "You know? Say, 'what?'"
Mommy: "What?"
Emerson: "I don't like pears. So, you can have it."

Discussing potty accidents:

Mommy: "I don't know what to do about this. It keeps happening."
Emerson: "Maybe put some tape on my bum?"


Going to McDonald's after disappointing change of plans visiting the science museum:
Emerson, tearfully: "Where is Mr. Donald's house?"

"Dear Lord, thank you for our food. Amen."


"I'll take care of Brennan and Mommy when you're gone, Daddy."

"How does it thunder? ... I'm sure it has pipes. It must have pipes."


"I can pray.... Thank you, God, for the weather and for the am-uh-muls, to come out of their houses. A-men."


Mommy: "Grandpa knows how to whistle."
Emerson: "And Daddy knows how to whistle!"
Mommy: "That's right! But Grandpa is the BEST at whistling."
Emerson:"...But Daddy is the really best."


Emerson: "'re a good mom."
Mommy: "Aww, thanks, babe. What made you say that?"
Emerson: "You take good care of me!"

Mommy: "Someday Brennan will help with the weeds, too!"
Emerson: "Mom, she's already a gardener!"
Mommy: "Why do you say that?"
Emerson: "She's wearing a hat!"

Emerson: "Mommy, you're my friend."
Mommy: "You're my friend! Will you always be my friend?"
Emerson: "Yes."
(30 min later)
Emerson: "You're not my friend anymore."


To Mom, in the bathroom:

Emerson: "Mom, do you need some privacy?"
Mommy: "No...."
Emerson: "Okay. I'll keep you company then."

"I'm cleaning up our house. Brennan's not helping me. I'll do it my-delf. I'm trying my hardest, bestest to clean."


"Can I feed her? Then I would feel like a mommy, too."
