Tonight I'm on the phone with the godmother ironing out the details of this weekend when Back Seat Girl comes up to me and says:
"Go to the store and buy some applesauce"
And I look at her in amazement and reply:
"You want to go with momma and buy applesauce?"
I couldn't believe I heard her right. She's been asking for applesauce for the last couple of days but I don't have any, so I have to keep telling her that. Apparently she's sick of hearing it. But it gets better, because after she starts chanting "go bye-bye, go bye-bye", she says:
"Go to the grocery store and buy applesauce."
She knows what store to go to and actually realized that if I didn't have any the grocery store did, so we would have to go there and buy it. And then she had the words to say it.
I guess the next step will be when she starts asking for a pony. I already have an answer all ready: "Go ask your father."
