P has picked up two language tics that crack me up. She says “seriously,” one of her father’s favorite words (which drives me nuts) and “on behalf of us all,” one of my little phrases. Today this has manifested as:
“I would like to watch the dinosaur movie, on behalf of us all,” as well as, “Seriously, Mama, you don’t have a baby in there?” when assessing my (admittedly) unflattering skirt. (I changed. There’s nothing like a three-year-old’s honesty.)
Seriously, on behalf of us all: thanks, kid.
