It’s no secret that my entire family finds our ‘baby’ utterly hilarious. Here is a sampling of some of her choicest moments.
Her ideas on how to care for aging parents: “Mommy, I will always buy you toys, take you to the doctor, and take you to the playground.”
How to learn a foreign language: “I can speak Chinese! Because I’m wearing Chinese clothes!”
Upon waking up in the morning: “I don’t want kisses, I want my breakfast!”
Upon seeing Joel and Ashley walk down the aisle as flower girl and ring bearer in a wedding: “Oh no, Joel and Ashley got married! Now I have to marry Elliot!”
Her stance on the blueberry debate: “I do believe in blueberries! I do! I do!”
On a Skype call: “Where’s my favorite man? Tell Angel we need more candy. Especially the sugar kind.”
When Mom quoted the verse, “Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?” Sarah immediately piped up, “I did!” Mom said, “Oh really? What did you give Him?” Sarah said, “A cake. And He ate it!”
Sarah sings “This little light of mine,” including the verse “Don’t let Satan blow it out” and then asks, “Satan is bad, right?”
While an elder sibling is reciting 1 Peter 1:16, “because it is written ‘You shall be holy, for I am holy,’” Sarah interrupts “No, I am holy!”
Wise words on how to keep your job: “If you go to the movies during work, you’ll get fired; not the kind of fired where you get burned up but the kind where you don’t have a job.”
Advice to Rachel during a Skype call: “This is very important. Don’t eat wasabi!”
Her take on corporal punishment: "Daddy, if you spank me too much, your hearts will compete."
