My recording of Raine-isms is pretty hit-and-miss these days. It seems like I am never in a position to record the really good ones. Here are the few that I have recorded since my last post, along with some photos.

Raine and I were waiting for Carter to wake up so we could go to the grocery store. Raine picked up my grocery list and started “reading”:
Raine: “We need oranges and swiss cheese and tomatoes and we need to go to the toy store to get some toys . . . “
Raine: “And we need to go to the green Target to get some doughnuts.”
I had never noticed that the entrances to Target were different colors until Raine started talking about wanting to go to the “green Target,” not the “blue Target.” She knows that the green doors are on the side of the store where the doughnuts are . . . very observant!

I was folding my temple dress to put into my bag and Raine asked what I was doing. I told her that I was going to the temple. She got very excited and said, “Oh, are you going to get married!!!”

At lunch today I was telling Raine what something meant (I can’t remember now what it was). She kept telling me that it didn’t mean that, and I would insist that it did. I finally got fed up and said, “Then what does it mean?” Out of nowhere she says, “It means . . . no worries!”

It was the middle of the afternoon, the kids were playing in the playroom, when all-of-a-sudden Raine ran out of the room. Daddy went to check on her and found her in the bedroom changing her underpants and shorts.
Daddy: “How come you’re changing clothes? Are those wet?”
Raine, very matter-of-fact: “I have to change them ’cause I fluffed in my other underpants.”

Raine’s turn to count while playing hide-and-seek: “One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, percent, dollars, fifty.”

Raine: “Do chickens lay eggs for people to eat?”
Mom: “Yep, they do.”
Raine: “And do people lay eggs for chickens to eat?”
Mom, laughing: “No silly, people don’t lay eggs.”

Raine had been snitching treats all morning. When she woke up in the morning, the first thing she did was find a stool, climb up on the kitchen counter, get down the bag of M&M’s from the top shelf, and start eating. Later, DJ found her with the Hershey bars left over from our camping trip. When I went into her room to get out her church clothes, I found a half-eaten rope of licorice. I asked her about it and she happily admitted snitching it. Then she said, “Well, I KNOW Heavenly Father loves me!”
What do you say to that!?!!
