The Things She Says Part II

Lately, everything has been “dangerous.”  For example, Olivia says that she cannot wear a dress because it’s dangerous.  She cannot eat her dinner because it’s dangerous.  Basically, about everything I want her to do is dangerous.  It’s driving me up a wall! LOL! 

When you play with Olivia, you will most likely be told to tell her a story.  She will set you up with the cast of characters and the setting and you will determine the adventure.  Ryan is especially good at this and can literally tell her stories for hours.  I run out of plot lines and possible antagonists (big bad wolf, giant, monster, etc.)  Some days I just want to pick up a book and read it to her.  That takes a lot less effort!  I will forever treasure our storytelling adventures, however,  no matter how tired I am by the end of the story.

Another story that I can’t believe I forgot happened last week at Ryan's parents’ house.  We were all sitting around and Olivia was “measuring” all of us.  She would walk up to you with a measuring stick and say, “You’re a 5 or a 6 or a 4.”  When asked what number she was, she said, “I’m pi!”  I basked in the glory of her intelligence (and wondered how in the world she came up with that!)  It was hilarious. . .even if she was talking about baked goods.  The things she comes up with boggle my mind!  LOL!
