Remi: Momma, I gotta secret. You can’t tell anybody. I was sleepy at school. I missed my Momma & Daddy.
Me: Awww that’s so sweet! We missed you too!
Remi: (snuggles up next to me & sighs) I’m glad I just have my underpants on and nothing else.
“I think I just broke my elbow and cracked my knee! For real!”
Me: Are you going to drive Ruby around when you get a car?
Remi: YEAH! To the beach! Or maybe Target.
“This is gonna be greater than chocolate milk! Actually, I love chocolate milk very much…”
(Ruby laughed and coughed at the same time)
Me: What are you doing, Ruby?
Remi: She’s getting some energy in her throat.
Remi: No, Mom. For real.
Remi: I’m a wet blanket, Mom.
Me: (laughing uncontrollably) Why are you a wet blanket??
Remi: Because that’s what [Aunt] Cheri says!
(Remi taking a bath)
“Belly button, do your job to get bathed!”
(whispered to me during my sister’s wedding ceremony)
“I’m so excited for them to kiss!!!”
(While at my sister’s wedding reception, Remi busted his head open. I think he must have been delirious because Jarrett and I still have no idea what he was talking about! haha)
“Well, Daddy, now I’m at the hospital and you didn’t care about me! I was crying a minute ago and you didn’t even care!”
Me: Let me know if your forehead starts hurting and I can give you some medicine.
Remi: You’re the best medicine girl for me!
(We made a Valentine box at home. Remi’s looked like a steam engine and I wrote Remington’s Love Express on the front.)
“Instead of the Polar Express, it’s Remington’s Love Express? How fun & cute, Momma! I’ll remember that from now on!”
