Conversations in the Car

This afternoon, after nap, we (me and the girls) loaded up and headed to Kristin's to hang out (she's making chili dogs and frito pie). I was spacing out as I usually do when I drive (is this a bad thing?) and talking to Parker at the same time. You know the drill...she talks...I answer without even thinking.

Only today....after she had repeated herself about 4 times....and I had repeated myself about 4 times....I actually started paying attention to what we were saying. I smiled and laughed and thought that I needed to write this down...to remember it. So here I am.

PARKER: Auuuhhh....I love the school bus!! (as a school bus passed by)
ME: You do love the school bus! What color is the school bus?
PARKER: It's white.
ME: It's white??
PARKER: It's orange!
ME: No, it's yellow.
PARKER: It's orange!
ME: No, it's yellow.
PARKER: It's orange.
ME: (at this point I realize I am arguing, although we aren't raising our voices, with her). Ok- it can be orange (and really....they kind of are orange!)

{time elapses}

(I had told her we could stop at Sonic and get a strawberry limeade before we left the house)

PARKER: (as we are driving by) There's Sonic! I get my strawberry limeade!
ME: We have to go to a different Sonic because this one is too busy (due to construction it is a challenge getting in and out of this particular Sonic).
PARKER: That Sonic's too busy. We have to go to a new Sonic.

{time elapses}

PARKER: This is the new Sonic!! It's not too busy.
ME: That's right...this one's not too busy.

{time elapses}

ME: Parker.....you have to leave the lid on your strawberry limeade. OK? Yes m'am??
PARKER: (very enthusiastically) Yes man!!

{time elapses}

PARKER: Lovey is talking to me.
ME: She is?
PARKER: Ya-es.
ME: What is she saying?
PARKER: She says "Ma ma ma ma."
ME: Oh, how sweet! She loves her momma.
PARKER: I have to hold her so she doesn't fall down.

{time elapses}

PARKER: We have to go to Aunt Sis's new house!

{time elapses}

I am about to get her out of the car.

PARKER: Oh know!!!
ME: What??
PARKER: I got wet! My candy canes are wet!! (she is wearing a candy cane pajama top)
ME: It's ok. It will dry.
PARKER: I have to put on a new shirt.
ME: No...we'll put on a new shirt when we get home. Go knock on Aunt Sis's door.

And off she went.
