conversations with Eisley (part five)...

typical Eisley |
Eisley (watching me browse the spice section of the grocery store): What are you looking for, mommy? Jesus?

Eisley: I wish we had a princess dress in your size.
Me: Why?
Eisley (sighing wistfully): I just really want to see one on beautiful you.

Eisley (singing cheerfully in the mirror): Some kids don't have arms or legs! They don't have skiiiiiiiiin!

Eisley (peppering an older lady we just met at the laundromat with questions): How old are you? What's your husband's name? What's your daughter's name? I have seven kids. I'm going to be four in August, and five in July. What color is your car?

Eisley (eating a piece of toast): Ah! I just have to say it: This jelly is delicious.

For the record, I don't recall ever mentioning to her that there are children born without skin (although, we have had a talk about how sometimes people are born with bodies that are different than ours, but they are still just like us—so, maybe she was just taking that theme and rolling with it). Also, she is constantly telling tall tales about her life with her husband, Prince Eric. She is very matter of fact about it, and sometimes it catches me off guard because I think she's telling me something that actually happened…until it has to do with driving somewhere in her pink car with her husband, Prince Eric, and their daughter, Dadessa.

Me (pointing out a new restaurant): That looks good! We should go there sometime.
Jay: Yeah, we should.
Eisley: I've been there.
Me: What?
Eisley: I went there one time, but I drove by myself. You weren't there. I took my car. The pink one. I ordered the fish burrito, and it was so good.
