Milk in ner

Conversation: Milk before bed

E: Daddy, my belly hurts from drinking this milk.
D: Maybe you should stop drinking it then.
E: But I can have raw milk.
D: You’re right, bud.  That is raw milk.
E: But I really want to finish it.
D: [dizzy from the redundancy of conversation] Bud, if you want your belly to hurt, then finish your milk.  It’s time for bed.
E: Okay! [drinks]
Annie: Milk in ‘ner!  [pointing to her belly button after drinking two full glasses]

Comments while watching Lowland Hum’s new Christmas video, “Christmas Time Is Here” 

E: Daniel’s wearing a silly hat.  There’s a leaf on that hat.
M: Lauren’s voice is beautiful.
E: Why’s only Lauren singing?
M: Why are there lights on the piano?
E: That’s a silly piano.

While watching “Silent Night

M: They’re singing the right words, but making a different melody.  That’s okay!

E: Daddy, this is ten [holding up all fingers on both hands], and this is five! [closing fingers in one hand]
D: Yeah, bud!
E: Now I’m three, then I’ll be four, then I’ll be ten!
D: No, bud.  Next you’ll be four, and then five.
A: I ten?!
D: No, Annie.  You’re two and then you’ll be three.
A: Oh!
E: And then Annie will be as three as me!

D: Caela!  Don’t blow your nose on the window screen!
M: Oh.

E: [from the next room, getting ready for bed] Daddy!  Will we die one time and then come back to life?

After singing The Eyes of the Lord before bed, everyone out of rhythm, out of tune, and some not knowing all the words

M: Daddy, I like when we’re singing altogether because it’s so beautiful, like a little choir!
E: Like a little church!  Like a little house!
