Notable and Quotable: A Whole Bowl of Peaches

Because my little Peach is about to turn four next week, I feel compelled to give her a post wholly unto herself; that, and she says the most notable and quotable things.

I am brushing Peaches' teeth...
Me: Peaches, your teeth are so little and cute.
Peaches: And yours are so big, and NOT cute!

Peaches is playing dress up...
Peaches: Mama, when I grow up, do you think I should be Belle?
Me: I think you should grow up and be Peaches, Peaches. I don't think you need to be anybody else.
Peaches: Well, Mama, Belle isn't REAL. Nobody is really Belle. So I can be her. It's not like I want to be a REAL PERSON.

I've just picked her up from school, and covered her in hugs and kisses...
Me: Peaches, do you know three people who really love you?
Peaches: YES! Ava, Liam, and Nina! (Classmates)
Me: Oh. Well, yes they do... but...
Peaches: Oh, but Nina called me mean today so she doesn't really love me.
Me: Well, I know one more person who does love you a whole lot...
Peaches: OH! YEAH! My friend LILY loves me! Yeah, Ava, Liam and Lily...

Rooster is diving in mid-stream to a retelling of a movie, as he does, before he even says hello to our visitors...
Peaches (in a stage whisper): Rooster? Rooster? Give them the CONTEXT Rooster, or they won't know what you're talking about.

We love you, Peaches. Even more than Ava and Liam and Lily do.

Tell her if Lily calls her mean, she can put me on the list!

Happy birthday to that sweet little peach. I can't believe she didn't say PIXIE! Pixie loves you too, Peaches.

That last quote had me rolling on the floor. I could see my daughter, 6, saying that to my autistic son, 14.
