Where's Waldo?

Scene - Eva and I are watching a TiVoed episode of Globe Trekker, Hong Kong.

Eva - Mama! I from China!

Me - Yes. You were born in China.

Eva - Mama, you fly on airplane to China?

Me - Yes, we did.

Eva - And Daddy go with you to China?

Me - Yes. Daddy too.

Eva - And Jake...

Me - Yes...

Eva - And Jack...

Me - Yes!

Eva - And Tina!

Me - Yes. Mama and Daddy and Jake and Jack and Tina... we all flew to China to meet you.

Eva - Me from China.

Me - Yes. Yes, lovey, you are from China.

Eva - Mama?

Me - Yes?

Eva - Where me now?

ohhh. A sacred right of passage. Welcome to the club Eva! :)

Great pic Kristin!

Mamma said...

God! She's gorgeous! And an existentialist too.

Ninotchka said...

What an angel! I call my girls "lovey's" all the time too.

She looks so grown up in that picture. :)

That is too funny! We also spend a lot of time talking about China and looking at our Life Book and telling the story of Shea's adoption. I better check that she knows where she has ended up!

Kayce said...

A girl after my own heart...getting her toes done!

Jill said...

That picture is so freakin' cute!!!

Becky said...

awww LOL that was so cute! i love taking hannah to get her nails and toes painted!

carrie said...

No way. No way. No way.

Katie had her first mani/pedi on Saturday. She has since then picked the polish off her fingers, bu ther cute toes remain intact!

Expect to see the pics sometime . . . just don't know when yet!

Birds of a feather - You look like you had soooo much fun Eva, and I bet your toes are beautiful!

The problem with all of you "PC" types is that you don't deliver the whole picture. She should be taught to be as proud of being an American as she is Chinese.

Kristi said...

I see a diva in the making...

Tuesday Girl said...

So cute! My daughter is wondering when her first mani/pedi will be.

Los said...

Ha! What a fantastic conversation! Sometimes I feel this way as well.

Lisa said...

Oh she's such a sweet little girl.

I love that pic of her getting her pedi.

Mariss said...

Hey - what's with the jerk off who thinks you aren't teaching Eva to be proud of being American? Pay attention, dude, Kristen isn't very PC!

Love the pic!

Recovering Wino said...

That's great...I can't wait to take Isabel to get her nails done...

kris said...

Love this girl! Great train of thought... and nothing like a pedi... she's so cute.

Jill said...

A three-year-old view of geography is always funny!

I bet Eva's little toes are adorable.

For a 3 year old, Eva looks awfully comfy in the manicure throne.

Occidental Girl said...

That's so sweet. What a lovely memory!

Pendullum said...

Eva is so devine... Look how wee her toes are...
Ohhh... I need to take Scooter...
She is nine... Time to take the plunge...

dodo said...

wow. i've never had a pedicure. she looks she does it all the time!

Daniella said...

I love the mani/pedi pic - she looks as if she is is really enjoying it.

Jennifer said...

OH MY GOD!!!! First mani/pedi. A baby after my own heart. I wish I was sitting next to her. I love how she is soo little in the big chair!!!

Jodi said...

shoot, that's a cute story. Love it! and the mani/pedi? PRICELESS.

P.S. i still can't get into your super top secret blog. What gives??? :)

Damselfly said...

How sweet! I'm so excited because my older brother and his wife leave in two weeks to bring home their daughter from China!

I hate to be the downer here, but don't you think it's ridiculous to take a 3 year old for pedicures? She is going to expect this type of treatment for the rest of her life!

Kristin said...

Oh, dear, dear, Anonymous... of course she is going to expect this type of treatment for the rest of her life!

rubyiscoming said...

Love the NYC trip photos and her first mani/pedi! Seriously, the only thing better than valet? Someone to clean your toilets at home.....aaaaaahhhh, bliss.
