Scene: I walk in after returning from class and Harper comes to say good night to me.
Harper: (Noticing my necklace, which has a tree on it.) What are those?
Me: Tree branches.
Harper: Can I cyime (climb) them?
Scene: I follow Matt and Harper down the hall as he takes her to her room for bed. Harper employs the most irresistible stall tactic ever.
Harper: Mommy! Come here and kiss Daddy.
Scene: I am sitting at the computer when I hear a thud followed by loud screeching. I run to Harper's room to find she had emptied her laundry basket, turned it upside down, stood on it in an attempt to reach something on her dresser, and fallen down. I determine she fell on her back, but did not incur any lasting injuries.
Me: I don't want you to stand on laundry baskets any more. It isn't safe.
Harper: But I can stand on my stool!
Me: Yes, your stool is for standing on.
Harper: No standing on the yandree baskets. Only standing on stools.
Me: Thanks for the recap.
Harper: Your wewcome.
