Laura Marie Takes Canada: August 16, 2013

August 16:

* We thought Laura Marie might sleep late after getting to bed late.  But nope—we awoke with her standing right next to our bed, shouting, “Wake up, sleepyheads!”

* During breakfast, Carolyn poured syrup on Laura Marie’s waffle.  Laura Marie remarked, “How sweet of you!”

* As we rode the Maid of the Mist within an admittedly intimidating proximity to Niagara Falls, Laura Marie coolly observed, “It’s probably not a good idea to go under the water falls.”  She has the gift of understatement.

* During lunch, we were all quietly eating when Laura Marie suddenly said to Carolyn, “You are silly and dangerous.”

* After we got some ice cream and started walking along the falls, Laura Marie found a small green patch of earth in the middle of the vast crowds.  At her suggestion, we sat there and enjoyed our ice cream.  Several minutes later she said cheerfully, “So how do you like this meadow that I found?”

* At dinner, I asked Laura Marie why she had chosen Rolo ice cream earlier in the day.  She answered, “Because it caught my eye.”

* I told Laura Marie, “You’re an amusing person.”  She asked what “amusing” meant and I explained it.  A few minutes later she said to Carolyn, “Mommy, you’re a confusing person.”

* And my all-time favorite: As I was getting her ready for bed that night, she said, “You’re the world’s best daddy.”  I don’t think I’ll ever recover from that.
