Talking with Jane

With her sisters away at school during the day Jane and I have spent a lot of time chatting together.

And by chatting I mean she talks all day and I try to keep up.

Here are a few snippits of our conversations over the last week.


As I picked up a requested item off the floor for her:

Me: “No problem girl.”

Jane: “Call me hair salon girl.”

Me: “Alright. ย No problem hair salon girl.”Jane


A random question she sought me out to ask.

Jane: “Mom? Will you get bigger and bigger until you break this whole house?”

Me: “Will I get that big? No. I’m not getting any bigger.”

Jane: “Will I get bigger and bigger until I break this whole house?”

Me: “No, you won’t get that big either.”

Jane: “Will Dad?”

Me: “No, nobody will get that big.”

Jane: “Oh.”

And then she disappeared back the way she came. I also feel compelled to tell you that I’ve not gotten bigger in any way, shape or form recently.

Jane: “Mom I’m havin’ feelin’s.”

Me: “What kind of feelin’s”

Jane: “Elsa feelin’s”

Me: “What are those?”

Jane: “The kind that make you feel bad.”

I tried to find out what was up but she just swirled away in her Elsa dress. I feel fairly confident she was havin’ feelin’s of a pretend nature .Jane


This was a longย drawn out andย dramatic story with a surprise ending.

“Mom. I was really getting frustrated… with my feelings with dad…. because when I was gettin’ smaller and smaller… I wasn’t fitting into my lady bug pajamas.”

The end.


And finally near the end of a very long story that I, admittedly, was paying no attention whatsoever to:

Jane: “…we married and kissed- but don’t freak out!”

    She is just the cutest little thing! Lilly is talking more and more these days and sometimes she says the cutest things! Makes me forget all the frustration she puts me through the rest of the time ๐Ÿ˜

    • Jessie says:

      That’s true. Cute talking does help with the frustrations. Tonight Jane was doing her house wandering and telling me that she couldn’t sleep. I suggested that closing her eyes would help.

      “But my brain won’t LET me!”

      I told her to try, and then went to the other room and laughed! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Jellyfish Mama says:

        Lilly has taken to putting out her arms to be lifted and demanding ‘I want hugs mommy’ when I’m cooking but I’ve realised its not due to some overflowing of love for me, she just wants me to lift her so she can look at/grab/destroy whatever is on the counter ๐Ÿ˜

    Gorgeous. (Who is Elsa?!)

  4. I have one who talks a lot too, it’s interesting to me to just hear her brain processing and processing. Although, I will admit I “listen” to a lot of it on auto pilot.

    I laughed so hard I cried. Just now. When I woke up. Woke. Up. Crying. Thanks for that Jane. ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. Jerry says:

    A prediction based on experience: Jane will look exactly like this (in your eyes) on her wedding day.

  7. Even though I’ve never met you, Jane never fails to make me chuckle. Thank you for brightening my Friday evening!

    Perhaps you want to cut back on the “Alice in Wonderland” readings until Jane is older.
