Mikayla to her dad, while running in circles in the kitchen: “Dad, can you please buy me all the bread, then put it in my room so that I can swim in it and eat it when I sleep?”
On one of the worst mornings of my life – me: “Mikayla, why did you cut your hair?”
Mikayla: “Because my brother keeps pulling it.”
Mikayla to herself in the bath – in a low voice: “chase the robbers!!! high voice: But I am only a baby!” Me: Mikayla what are you playing? Mikayla: “Police babies”.
Mikayla on Knox’s bizarre love for eating paper: “Knox always eats paper for supper… Haha! He makes paper pie! That is a silly pie to make.”
Randomly in the car: “Mom, tomorrow when I am a teenager I am going to decorate a crocodile with diamonds.”
After we went to Fysh’s birthday party at Newlands Forest, Mikayla decides that she needs to poo. We go to the public restroom at the top of the trail and it was super stinky! Anyway, Mikayla goes in to the bathroom and sits on the loo and has a wee – “Oh, I don’t need a poo anymore! I’m going to keep it for tomorrow! My bum doesn’t work in stinky places.”
After giving Mikayla her antihistamine she starts coughing so her aunt asks her what the medicine is for and why it made her cough, Mikayla responds “It is medicine you take when you want to die…. it is that gross.”
Waiting in a que with her aunt and she starts getting restless, so her aunt tells her she has to have patience… so she responds: “don’t be silly, patients are in a hospital.”
Planning her 5th birthday party: “Mom! I want a scary Hallooooweeeeeeen party, in a spooky castle with spooky things, and you can dress up like Clawdeen Wolf and I will be Frankie Stein, and Jessica can be Draculaura, Knox can be a scary Spider and daddy can be a sparkly unicorn!”
At Tiger’s Milk for lunch, Mikayla takes a sip of her milkshake and grabs her throat – “Mom! I have a brain freeze in my throat – it could not find my brain!”
Sitting on her bed with Knox, she puts her arms around him and saiz: “Knox, I can’t wait until you can walk – I am going to teach you ballet, and how to twirl, and dress you up, and love you, and kiss you, and show you all the pretty things and we will be ballet partners. And now we are going to watch ALL the Barbie movies!”
