Anna called me into her room early in the morning. I saw her on her bed curled up under a pillow.
Anna: Can you fix my blanket?
… so you pulled your pillow from underneath your head and covered yourself with it, but you couldn’t pull up the blanket over yourself???
Anna: Mama, who’s your favorite people? Me or you?
(well, that’s pretty obvious)
Road trip to Traverse City
Anna: I need to go potty!
Mikolaj: You just went potty few minutes ago (we stopped at a gas station less than 5 minutes prior)
Iza: You need to hold it for a little (until we could get to a rest area or another exit)
Anna: Oh shucks, now we have to go to somebody’s house…
Anna is very energetic and active person She’s known for saying things like:
- I can’t sit anymore….
Anna really wanted ice cream, so she recruited Maya to help her.
Anna: I want ice cream… Maya, let’s shout. You say: ICE CREAM. I say: SWEATY
…and so they did…
I think Maya believes that can do more than me, her mama. Every time, I can’t do something, she says “tata, help!”
Anna: Can I have some juice?
Iza: yes, just give me a minute.
Anna after 10 seconds: Can I have some juice, please? I’m being patient…. Quick, mama, quick!!!
One day we decided to take both kids for a run. We put them in separate strollers. Mikolaj was running and pushing Anna. I was running with Maya.
Anna: RUN, tata, Run!!!
Mikolaj: I’m tired. I need to walk for a minute.
Anna (seeing that me and Maya are ahead of them): Do you want to win or loose!!??
Anna: Well, I WANT to win!! Run, Tata, RUN FASTER!
Meanwhile Maya kept her quiet and steady: “Go! Go!” or just “Faster!”
Iza was upstairs when she heard something fall down in the kitchen…
Anna: Taaaataaaa! You made a mess… You’re in trouble! Can I tell mama?!
Maaaaamaaaa!!! Tata made a mess! He needs time out!!
Anna was playing in a living room. She was dancing and jumping and stretching saying “just like ballerina”
Mikolaj: Do you want to learn ballet? Would you like some lessons?
Anna: Tata, I KNOW it already!
