Toohig Tidbits: September

At bedtime one night, she was being a drama queen. “Mama’s always mad at me!” She was holding something I couldn’t see, which turned out to be little medicine cups, and she said, “They are my tear cups to catch my tears!” Don’t feel too bad for her. Within two minutes, she was jabbering about Mrs. Barksdale and the popcorn party they had that day. “I just do not understand why we had it, but you know, I’m not going to ask. I’m just glad we had it!”

At sushi, she was pretending her chopstick was a magic wand. Pointing to me, she said, “Magic wand, change your attitude!” I guess she’s heard that a time or two!

She told a lady at the paint place, “My daddy’s silly- I get it from him!” Also there, a little boy was holding her hand and dragging him around. She said, “Mama, now I know how you feel with me dragging you around!”

“You haven’t been to Bass Pro, Mama? Whoa. Lots to learn.”

After she recently told me how to close out my apps on my phone to save my battery, she asked me if I noticed my phone holding ‘juice’ better.

“When you get to heaven, Mama, you’ll have to take pics and send them to my phone.”

“Mama is my safety weapon.”

“Mama is my best friend.”

At a Mexican restaurant, she was bossing me around about tacos. I asked her, “Who made you the queen of tacos? Is that your new title?” She said, “No, it’s ‘Sassy’ to you!”

At Bubba’s house for dinner, completely unprompted, I heard her ask her, “Bubba, is there anything I can do to help you?”

I asked her what was in her hair. She said, “None of your beeswax.”

John got to coach one of HG’s soccer games, and HG was so cute about it. She later told me, “I want Daddy to coach my next game.”
