Alice the Astonomer

October 25, 2012

We’re in the tub, taking a bath, and suddenly Alice says, “THE MOON!”

I can’t possibly describe how cute this is.  Very bubbly little voice and very excited.

Me: “Where?”

Her: “THE MOON!  It DERE!”

She points up and I realize she has actually caught a glimpse of it between the slats of the blinds in the window over the tub.

Me: “Wow, that is a bright moon.  What color is it?”

Her: “It WIPE!”

Me: “Want to go see it?”

Her: “IT RIGHT DERE!”

Me: “No.  Want to go OUT and see it?”

Pause.  Her: “YEAH!  I GO OUT AND SEE DA MOON!”

So I could hardly keep up with her, but got her little butt out of the tub and wrapped in a towel, and threw on a robe.  (This is all not 20 minutes after she pooped her pants for the second night in a row, had to be wiped down, and screamed her head off.)  Took her downstairs.  Catherine was very angry to not be invited.

Carried her outside.

Her: “Where da moon?”

Me: “Behind those trees.”

Her: “DA WIPE MOON!”

We had to walk to the edge of the lawn to see the moon well from behind the trees.  I propped her up on the fence and she squealed about it for a few minutes.  Luckily, warm night.

Brought her inside.  “Daddy, I saw the MOON!  WIPE MOON!”

Alice= awesome.
