Some of the things that come out of her 4 year old mouth blow me away.  What mom doesn't love to listen to her kids speak and get an insight into their minds?  It's fascinating to me.  I wish I had a little magic tape recorder to carry around that I could download all pertinent conversation at the end of the day and save it forever.  I'm terrible at remembering to write it down, usually.

She's been noting things on the road and telling us what a "clever idea" that was lately.  Today she noticed a girl riding her bike on the sidewalk instead of the road and said, "Wasn't that a clever idea for her to do that, Mommy?"  I think she thought this was clever after we followed behind a cyclist on the busy road yesterday and she was very worried for his safety.

They are doing some construction work on Parris Island and have blocked off some roads partially to work for safety.  She also thinks that's "very clever of them, Mommy".

Today we're getting ready for an Easter Egg hunt at church and she wanted to pick out some "sparkly shoes that were click clacky."  She said it sounded like her shoes were happy and singing when she walked in them.  After she put them on and walked around, she was delighted - "OH MOMMY!  They DO click clack!!!  I knew it!"
