Quotes from a 4 year old

For a 4 year old, Isabelle has an amazing grasp of vocabulary and uses it very well. Sometimes it's not quite right, and sometimes she comes out with some quotes that just make you laugh.

Recent quotes from her include:

Whilst eating an ice-pole - oooh, it's like having winter in your mouth

On her Daddy's 40th birthday when he received an inflatable zimmerframe for a joke: Daddy, you need to use this when you walk because you're now very old. Dad says: I'm not that old. Isabelle says: [as a statement] well you're not young are you!

word of the year is: Eckspecially. She just can't get her mouth around especially.

Upon me losing at a game on the computer: It's ok to lose sometimes mummy, it's not all about the winning. it's the having fun while you play that counts [blank look on my face]

On not wanting to go upstairs to the toilet on her own: I KNOW there aren't any bugs in the bathroom, but I have a naughty brain that keeps telling me there are bugs in there really.

I'm sure there are a million and one others, but they escape me at the moment.

Things on my mind....

in no particular order (at risk of sounding like I'm announcing the results for the x factor)

Why hasn't Mark's mum, stepdad, sister or bother phoned him yet to wish him happy birthday for last Sunday. It's bothering him.

Why on earth have I been waking up at 5.30am for the last 3 mornings and not been able to get back to sleep.

I hope Asda isn't too busy when I go for the last few things I need this morning.
Don't forget my shopping list this time!

Shall I make a chocolate yule log or not?

Don't forget to text my mum. I've not heard from her since she travelled down south to visit friends on Sunday.

Have I forgotten anything?

Do I do the ironing before Christmas or do I hide it away until after, with the pile growing higher as it's one of my least favourite things to do.

Don't forget Christmas Crackers.

Do I really need to clean the house from top to bottom because 'it's Christmas' and it's what I'm programmed to do because my mum always did it when I was little and we were all roped in to help.
    I'm sure there's more...
