Me: "Who has the best seat in the house, me or daddy?"

Adam: "Well, Daddy's is nice, but yours is best. Your's is squishier."

Living in Disneyland

Just before Jonah's blessing, there was a flurry of cleaning. It was a feeble attempt on my part to reverse the effects of months of deferred maintenance while I grew a tiny human. At one point, having run out of time to actually mop, I gave Tessa a wash cloth and asked her to spot clean the floor. She happily obliged, and a few minutes later said,

"Mama, I is like Cinderwella."

"You are?"

"Yeah, cuz I is cleaning da' floohr, only I don't have a dwess of wags."

Not 15 minutes later, Ellie came in to ask if daddy would be the one doing Jonah's blessing. I told her he would, to which she replied, "Can you tell him to lift Jonah up like in Lion King?" She struck a Rafiki-pose, her face stoic and serious, raising her arms to the sky as though she were holding up young Simba.

A few days later, Tessa got a cloth and went at the floors again, only this time she was really workin' it.

"Look mom. Dis is my upset face, cuz I am Cinderwella and I am sad washin' da floohr."

If there is a casting call for a Disney film any time soon, somebody should let these two know about it!
