A’s mom slept in the spare bed in Monkey’s room while she was visiting. One morning, Monkey comes up to A and me and we have the following conversation:

Monkey: There’s a monster in my room.
me: Monkey, there’s no monsters.
Monkey: Yes there is. I heard it. It snores at night.


I tried to convince Monkey to come with me to Fairway for some grocery shopping.

“No, I want to go to the park.”
“We need to buy some food, Monkey.”
“But, the park is calling my name, Mommy.”
“Is it now? What’s it saying?”
“It’s saying ‘Don’t go to Fairway! Don’t go to Fairway!'”

A’s mom was visiting a few weeks ago. She tells Monkey, “Your baby sister was telling me how she has such a great big sister.”

Monkey replied, “No she didn’t. She can’t talk yet.”

"Is my tongue blue yet?"

At the zoo today, a group of kids were calling the monkeys in an exhibit. They were asking the furry animals if they wanted to play. Monkey tells them, “They don’t actually talk.”

We took you to the West Indian Parade on Labor Day. You loved watching the “princesses” and screamed when Ronald McDonald rolled by. How the hell do you know who Ronald McDonald is?
