Dancing in the grass

“I love you more than lollipops and marshmallows.”


Me: “You can be anything you want to be when you grow up.”

Liv: “I want to be a doctor. No, a robot.”


“Let’s go shoot some ladders!”

(= play Chutes and Ladders. I think she thinks chute is “shoot,” because play basketball fairly often haha.)


Liv: “I want to go home.”

Me: “What do you mean? This is our home. This is where we live.”

Liv: “I want our Tucson home.”

And then I cry. I think it’s her way of saying she misses the family. :/


“Mmmm that smells good. Like a chicken noodle on a hot day.”
