And then she started screaming, “Peanut Butter Crackers!”

15 Mar

Ever hear two little girls, ages 4 and 5, talk on the phone?  Nia’s friend Nicole calls her every couple of days just to make sure her favorite colors are still pink, purple and blue and if she’s changed her mind about who her favorite princess is.  It is a riot.  Tonight, I actually got some of the conversation (if you can call it that!) on camera and thought you might like to watch Nia act all grown up and stuff.  She even told Nate to go away because he was being too noisy!

After I stopped the camera, Andrew and I really cracked up.  Nicole asked Nia what she did at school today and  I told her to tell Nicole what she had for a snack.  Although Nicole had started talking about something else, Nia just started yelling “Peanut Butter Crackers!”  She kept yelling it because she thought Nicole’s “what’s?” meant she couldn’t hear what Nia was saying but really Nicole had no idea why Nia was shouting “Peanut Butter Crackers!” at her.

I think I’m going to try that next time I get an unwanted phone call. “Hello?” “Hello Ms. Va-yez?” “Peanut Butter Crackers!”  “Ah, yes, is Ms. Va-lez there?”  “Peanut! Butter! Crackers!”

Yep.  Sounds like a plan.

    That Nicole is a chatty kid. Thanks for sharing this, Nikki. It was really entertaining!

    Even Nia thought that! At one point she asked, "Why does she keep talking?"

    I just can't believe how grown up she seems – filing her toenails while she talks on the phone!

    This is way too precious! It's funny how little girls don't always understand each other on the phone. I love that most of the conversation consists of "What?" and lots of "ummmm's" How wonderful to get to watch Nia at the various stages of her life!! Thanks for posting these videos and stories to share with those of us who love all of you so very much!!! Love, Mom V
