Funny Things Emery Says

Emery is always saying things that are really funny and sometimes unknowingly profound or interesting:

My pee wants to give the toilet some water

Can I have this lollipop now and this other one not now?

We are talking about months and birthdays. Emery and Ashley are in the car driving to school in the morning

Emery: Mama, I have a question for you, whose birthday is in May and it starts with an E? Ashley (joking): elin (Emery’s classmate). Emery: No! Ashley: Ella? Emery: No! She is in her car seat in the same car as you. Ashley: hmmm. Emery: It’s Me!!! Then they both start laughing

We have trouble putting Emery to bed in her new bedroom and sleeping by herself. One night Ray puts her to bed but Emery doesn’t want to be left alone.

Emery: I don’t want to be alone. Ray: but you are not alone. You have all your friends. (Meaning the kitties and toys). Emery: no they are not real friends. They are not real. I don’t want to be alone by myself.

We were buckling in on the airplane when Emery pointed at the two lights for “fasten seatbelt” and “no smoking”. Emery said it meant:

Don’t take off your seat belt and you need your toothpaste.

Mommy did you know I love you to the moon and in the back…

I mid May 2014, Emery wakes up on morning and jumps into our bed and shouts:

mommy daddy, wake up, it’s spring!!!

Mother’s Day Art Project

Ok, it’s true that we are just finishing the Mother’s Day art project one day before Father’s Day. That is just how we roll.

I bought the supplies and frames from a local arts and craft store. Ashley chose the photos of her and Emery that she loves. I setup the project space and Ashley and Emery worked together to create this beautiful board. Here’s some pics of their work:













Boston Common

My parents took Emery to Boston Common for an afternoon just with Emery. They walked around gardens, saw the ducks and rose the iconic swan boat. Afterwards they took Emery to eat steamed buns “xiao long bao” in Chinatown and Layer went to Copley. They spoiled her rotten like great grand parents and bought her a dress and a terrier purse that she picked out herself. Here are some pics from that great afternoon in the city of Boston.

And this is how it began.
