here is what you may have overheard at casa hart lately:
gia to me (as i walk into a room and she quickly moves her hand from my scissors): i sorry mama. i won't touch your lizards.
luca to gia (before jumping off the ledge outside the middle school): don't copy me. if you do this, you'll break.
luca to me (pointing to the chalkboard): i drew you these hearts because i love you.
gia to luca (before falling over in dizziness): i can't be a robot, i just a spinner thing.
and my faves from the week. . .
gia to me (while explaining the story of her carrot family): jesus didn't make luca yet. he's not born yet either.
luca to me (after eliciting another adorable smile from the goo): i don't want enzo to grow up. i like him little. . . but when we do grow up, we can both be papas.
enzo to me, jesse, luca, gia, flaco, zion, my dad and the ceiling fans (all the time): aoooo/cooo/ahhh
