I KNOW!

"I know, I know, I KNOW!!!"

Hannah says that so often after hearing my answer to a question she asks.

Today I was already having a hard day, so when she said that I said "You know, it makes it really hard for me to want to answer questions if you already know everything."

"I don't know everything," she said. "Like, I don't know what type of unicorn I'm going to see in the future, just that I'm going to see one. If you have any insight into that, I'd be grateful."

Oh for PETE'S sake...did she really use the word "insight" in her retort? ah ha ha ha...
What in the world could you possibly say to that? :-)
(love your new header photo!!)

I know, Danni, right? Honestly, that girl absorbs language like other kids absorb candy. Sometimes I just stare at her when she uses words I've never heard her use before - and in context. She still startles me sometimes.

Isn't that photo lovely?

Can you imagine what kind of writer she will be? (I can't wait!)
That picture shows Ainsley's gorgeous eyes and how much she looks like her daddy. It's adorable. (Hiiii Matt!!!)

Hahaha, that's awesome. I so want to plan a vacation to Idaho, just so I can meet your kids (and you and Matt of course!).

This reminds me of when she got mad at you one time and told you that you would NOT have any grandbabies. Then when she felt better, she softened up and said you may get a few. Hilarious girl.

Ha! I love her! Kathryn says it while I'm asking her to do something. She knows *everything*. Honestly, I don't know why I bother.

not much to add - but I laughed out loud and had to read it to Tuan. Too adorable!

Isaac absorbs language like that as well. Talks better than many adults I know. (Sad, I know.) The other day he says to me, "Mummy, I suppose it would be alright if you wanted to share some of my red peppers. You always share with me, and I'd like to share with you as well. " He's just four. I love his love of language. And...we get the "I know" thing here all the time too. Thanks for sharing how you handle that. I'm going to use. it. -Debbie
