Some recent Adaisms

Things sometimes appear to get a little lost in the telling of the parsha in school. Ada love to share everything she's learned in great detail. It took us a little bit to figure out some details in Bereishit like when Hashem blew a soul into Adam she declared, "Hashem glued a neshama into Adam." Or her description of the story centering around the "fake tree" which was determined to be a misrepresented fig tree!

Sometimes, though, I don't want to correct some errors because they sound so cute. Like when she says sepretary instead of secretary. Or when she urges her sister to hurry up by saying, "C'mon! Pick up the paste!" Nothing stops that girl from experimenting with new "fancy" words every day. Love it.

An older lady - a friend of Dovid's grandmother - complimented Mordechai on how handsome he was. She went on to say how important sons were. After all, she said, they carry on the name.

My son thoughtfully mused, "What's more important, the name or the religion?"

Ah, nachas!

Ada had a supply of potato sticks from the tearoom in a foam cup. Unfortunately, most of them accidentally spilled out onto the floor. After she collected them up, she announced that she would throw them out and replace them with a fresh supply. She began to pour out the potato sticks into a nearby trash can.

Me: Why don't you just throw out the whole cup and get a new one?

Ada: I'm trying to save the environment!
