The Things They Say

I made the girls peanut butter cookies using crunchy peanut butter. The girls were sitting and eating their cookies and milk when Kesa turns to ask me “Do I have a pistachio?” I reply, “No, I didn’t put any pistachios in the cookies, those are the peanuts. It is crunchy peanut butter.” Then she says, “NO! A PI-STACH-IO!” as if I completely misunderstood her. Autumn and I then began laughing and Autumn tells me, “She means a mustache!!” She had a faint almond milk mustache on her upper lip, or a “pistachio” as she calls it.

On our walk Autumn asked me if I could make chocolate pudding for her and Kesa when we got home. I answered her with an upbeat “Maybe later.” She then hung her head and said, “You know mom that maybe actually means no.” I had to laugh at how smart she actually is because she is right. Maybe most often does mean no. If someone is actually going to do something or be somewhere, then they say yes. If they say maybe, they probably won’t do what they said or show up for you.

One day I noticed Kesa taking a sticker, crumpling it up and throwing it on the floor. I then asked her, “Is that where that belongs?” She replied by telling me, “No, I was just putting it there so that you could pick it up.”

Autumn and Kesa were playing Barbies. Autumn was changing Barbie and Kesa was changing Ken. Kesa suddenly says, “Auty they can’t see each other!” Autumn then reassuringly said, “No Kesa, it’s OK, they’re married.”
