Quotable Athena (Updated)

Update: I forgot to enter this favorite of mine.
Athena: Mama will it rain today?
Me: I am not sure, lets check the forecast.
Athena: It doesn't matter. Mother Nature does what she wants.

This girl cracks me up. Sometimes I don't know where she comes up with this stuff. Sometimes I do.In the past week she has said all of the following:

Dad is singing in a goofy voice. She hears him and says "Dad, stop singing!"
Dad: "Are you gonna beat me up?"
Athena: "Yes I am."
Dad: "Bring it on Buckwheat." (she hates when he calls her Buckwheat)
Athena: "Well I don't want to. I changed my mind cuz I love you."

A few days prior Athena was playing on her monkey bars and I told her that it was almost time for bath. I was just going to water my herbs and then I would go up to run the bath.

Mama: "I am going to run your bath. I expect you to come inside in a minute or two." Then I walk past her to go into the house.
Athena:" Don't look at me like that!"
Mama: "I am not even looking at you."
Athena: "Well you were going to, I know it."
Mama: ignores sassiness and goes upstairs, runs bath.
Athena: Comes up right away and says "Sorry Mama."
Mama: "Sorry for what?"
Athena: "Talking back to you. Its the first time I've done it and I didn't like it."


A: "Mama, remember Lauryn has my stuffed up kitten named Oliver?" ( I love that she says "stuffed up" instead of stuffed.)
A: "I want it back."
M: "So go get it."
A:"By myself?"
M:"Yes. Just be very careful and watch for cars when you cross the street."
A:"Okay Mama. I'll be careful. I won't let you down!"

And just the other day, while drawing a picture she says:

"An artist draws what she wants WITHOUT anyone else telling her what to do. Right?"
Yes, you are right.
And this is the scene I encountered when I walked into the kitchen yesterday. Do you think this girl wants a pet? The one on the left is Oliver.

Those quotes are all so cute. Smart lady, recording them on your blog, I'm sure you would never want to forget those.
I think Athena needs some pets. ;)
