Milly just came in from being outside with her dad (who had mowed our bushland yard). She was quiet in the kitchen so I hollered in and asked her what she was doing:

"I'm fixing my foots. My feets. My feet ... foots."

I walked in to find her on the floor in front of the stove, with my good dishtowel calmly cleaning mud and dirt off her feet. 

I said "Oh sweetie, that towel is for clean hands - not dirty feet! We should use a paper towel!" 

She responded "But I'm doing it myself!" Well, yes, but....

Cora was telling me about an altercation out on the playground today.

Cora: Mom, one of the teachers tripped on the playground and said the "s" word today!
Me:  Oh wow. That's not good. I bet that teacher was really sorry!
Cora:  Yep! She tripped and, well, I can't say it.
Me: {intrigued}  What did she say - it's ok, you can tell me.
Cora: She tripped and said "Stupid crack!"  Yeah!  She said {whispers} "stupid"!  I've also heard teachers say the j-word AND the o-word!

Cora to me as we follow Milly up the stairs:
"Milly is so cute. I'm so glad we picked her out. She is just darling."

This weekend, while hanging out in the W Midtown for Aunt Gigi's wedding, Meme gave the girls some fun light up necklaces.   Milly came over wearing hers and proudly announced "I'm a Fashion Pizza."  After a little dissecting I realized what she meant was "fashionista".
