Avi is full of beans spunk, energy and enthusiasm. She doesn’t do anything halfway. Spend five minutes with her and she’s likely to have you laughing. She’s not the type of girl you can ignore- even for a moment.
Avi’s favorite phrases at age four:
Anything that begins with…
*why do I always… have to clean my room?
*why do I always…have to sit at the table?
*why do I always…have topick up my shoes?
* why can I never…look at books?
* why can I never drink water?
* why can I never sit on the couch again?
The couch question was most recently asked after I told her to get off the couch since she had been standing on her head and repeatedly kicking her siblings in the head- despite their asking her to stop.
A dozen times a day she comes up to me and says, Mama, are we going to church this day?
Mom, are we home now? Asked whether we are at home, school, the library, or anywhere.
To Keziah: “You have to call me a Princess! I’m going to ask Mama…See, I’m a Princess!
Mom, can I drink your coffee?
I guess you’re not my friend! – said when she is mad at anyone, for any reason
Ladies First! See, Mama said so.
She loves to say anything that begins with See…and ends with…I told you!
* If she’s mad at Jubilee she will say, “See, Ziah, Jubilee’s not a princess, right?”
* If she’s mad she’ll start a sentence with, “I’m never gonna…
…get out of bed
…eat my food
…look at books
And that’s just a start, my friends. Avi truly is, one of a kind!
