True Story.


A couple of days ago, the girls and I were hanging out in my room while I was putting away some laundry. I asked the girls if they wanted to watch some Charlie and Lola. They did. Immediately, Lila told me that while she and Vivienne watched TV, I could work out.

It went like this:

Lila: "Are you going to work out?"

[two seconds later...]

Lila: "You know, you can work out while we watch Charlie and Lola."

[another two seconds later...

Lila: "You should workout, Mommy."

[ONE second later...

Me:  Thinking: [I mean, I know I should work out, but why does my 3-year-old keep telling me this? Get out of my business, Lila. I heard you the first time.]

Lila: "Are you going to work out?"

Me: "Lila, why is it so important that I work out?"

Lila: "Because, Mommy. It is very important to work out. For your body. For your food. Because if you don't working… then…well then... um... I think... well,  your food will fall out and that is not good."

Me: [Thinking, well no, there's no way that would be good.]

Lila goes on: [throws her hands up in the air] "That is the truth of the story. "

Translation: I thinks she meant to declare, "True story."

I love this kid.


And yesterday in the car, this happened:

Me: Lila, when you grow up, are you going to work and have a job?

Lila: Yes. I am going to work with you and Daddy...

[she went on...]

...And I'm going to play the flute.
