As usual, Mia has said some silly, clever, and just plain odd things this past month. I never know what is going to come out of her mouth. Four is a pretty fun age for parenting.

While braiding her hair:
Mia: "It's taking too long."
Me: "Well, what do you want me to do?"
Mia: "Um... You can just go faster!"

I poured her a bowl of Frosted Mini Wheats for breakfast (no milk!) as she requested.
Mia: "I usually call these astronauts."
Me: "Why do you call them that?"
Mia: "Because they are tasty things."
Don't ask; I have no idea.

While watching me clean the bathroom:
Mia: "You're a good cleaner!" A bit later she added, "Wow! The sink smells awesome!"

She has been picking up on homophones lately. She recently explained to me that there are two kinds of bats- the kind that flies and the kind you hit a ball with, but this one caught me off guard by how funny it is.
Mia: "There's two kinds of nuts. There are acorn nuts and nuts-ohs."
Me: "What are nuts-ohs?"
Mia: "That's when you say, 'Oh, nuts!' because you forgot something."
