Baba was feeling sick one day and asked who would look after him, Lilah's response was: "Well, I think you're big enough!" I was trying to squeeze Lilah's foot into her ice skate one day, which requires some extra muscle! While I was huffing and puffing, I felt Lilah patting my head as she said to me: "It's okay Mama, just try your best." Wearing her pretend glasses and pretending to read a book one day, she looked up and said to me, very matter of factly: "I only need to wear these glasses when I'm reading!" (see picture above) I had the flu for a few days, my sweet girl would squeeze into bed beside me, rub my arm and say: "I wish I could take it away, Mama. I wish I could make you feel better." While playing nurse and sticking the thermometer in my mouth one day (she has a real one), it beeped, she took it out, looked at the screen and said: "Oh! It says, dear Jill, feel well soon!" I was planning on joining Lilah's class as a volunteer one day and happened to be explaining to Lilah (maybe for the second or third time!) that I'd see her later and to tell her teacher that I'd be joining them. In an exasperated voice she said: "Okay! Okay! You don't need to yak on and on about it!" In Lilah's class there is a little girl named Ila. I overheard her one day saying this: "ila lilah ila lilah ila lilah - they sound the same, but they're not identical!" Baba is always teasing Lilah that she's his girl and kisses her and then loudly whispers, "Don't tell Mama!" Her reponse to him is usually: "No Baba! I'm not sucking 'round you!" When I asked if I could help her with her zip one day, her response was: "No thanks. I'm the zipper expert!"
