Cora: (looking at my wedding photos) Mom, I like that one and that one.  You know why? Cuz they're of you dancing.   I'm a good dancer.  I've got good moves.


Cora:  Lets pretend I'm wearing that dress you have on.
Me:  My wedding dress?
Cora:  Yup.
Me:  Someday you will grow up and if you want to get married you can wear that dress if you want to.  You can wear that dress, or you can get a different dress.
Cora:  I'll wear that dress when I marry daddy.
Me:  You're gonna marry daddy when you grow up?
Cora:  Yup.  He's a good catch.

On the way home from school today Milly started crying in the car.

Cora:  Milly - I need you to stop crying ok?  Just trust me ok?  Trust me.  Just trust me.  (to me:)  Mom, I'm trusting Milly.  I'm trusting her to stop crying.
Me:  Well trusting a baby can be tricky because they don't really understand trust.
Cora:  Well if she doesn't stop crying then when I get the penguin with the scarf around its neck* at Christmas, then I won't share it with her.

(* This is all she has talked about wanting from Santa. Its a $9 plush seasonal toy from Target.  Oh if all future CMases were this easy....)
