We have a rule about mama's bathtime.  Caitlyn can come in the bathroom, but she has to be quiet.
Tonight I was having a bath, and Caitlyn said something very quietly, I couldn't hear her, so I asked her to repeat herself.  
She said, "Mama, you can't have a book in the bath!"
So, I explained that grown ups were allowed to bring books in the bath.
She stood quietly beside the bath for 2 minutes (which is a long time when you're 2!), and then she whispered, "Mama, how's your bath going?"

The Park

We drove past a park about 30 minutes away from our house the other day.
Caitlyn:  When I am 3, I will go to that park all by myself.
Mama:  How will you know the way?
Caitlyn:  I will get lost.  I will say "Mama, Papa, I'm lost" and you will come and help me find the park.

After Visiting the Pet Store

Mama: What was your favorite animal at the pet store?
Caitlyn:  The rampsters, they were so cute.  I will take care of them, so they will not bite me.  They will stay in the cage, at the pet store, okay?

We took Caitlyn out for breakfast on Friday.  The waitress came to take our drink orders.
Papa: Caitlyn, would you like apple juice, or orange juice?
