Conversations with Avery

Avery: Mom, I just peed in the bathtub!

Me: Why did you do that?

Avery: Cuz that's my job!


Rob:  I want to hear about your day at school today.

Avery:  Uh......I don't want to talk about that right now.


Eating watermelon

Avery: I can't eat the seeds.  They will hurt me.

Me: Well, they won't hurt you. We just try not to eat them.

Avery: Yeah, they can't hurt me...they don't have any hands.


Rob: Avery, your hair is trashed.

Avery, panicking: No!! My hair isn't trash. Don't throw it away!


Bedtime. Repeated stalling tactics via requests for things like water, socks, back rubs, then...

Avery: I have to go potty.

Me: SIGH. Hurry up.  I think you're playing games.

Avery: well, it doesn't seem to ME like I'm playing games.
