Only Babies Are Cute

Zoë was "sitting on the throne" and we were looking at the pictures on her potty seat. She was pointing to the pictures and telling me what they were. Then she moved on to a sticker of Marlin and Dory and pointed at Marlin and said that he's big.

Me: Yes, he's bigger than Nemo. Marlin is Nemo's daddy.
Zoë: Nemo baby. Cute.
Me: Yes, Nemo's the baby. You think Nemo's cute?
Zoë: Yeah. Nemo cute.
Me: Well, I think you're cute, too.
Zoë: No. (Frowning)
Me: You're not cute?
Zoë: No, Mommy! Big girl.
Me: Oh yes, you're a big girl.
Zoë: Yes. Big girl. Babies cute.
Me: Oh, only babies are cute? Big girls are not cute?
Zoë: Yeah. (Nodding earnestly)

I just realized that every time she says something is cute, they're small stuff, or in her words, "baby" stuff. Apparently all things "baby" are cute and because she is now a "big girl," I cannot say that she is cute anymore.

Beautiful job on the new header...it's unbelievable how much time goes into making those...especially if your a perfectionist like me...it took me a couple of hours to make the background as well as the header on my page (thanks for the compliment btw...made my day).

Don't kids say the cutest things? I love the sweet stories you tell about how your two kids relate to one another, how caring they can be of one another...too cute!

They are definitely the cutest..It's even cuter when they don't want to be called BABIes anymore.
Have a great week!
