I ed trying to surprise monster but she was with me when I picked them up. One of them stuck her head out of the box and the conversation goes:
Bella: a kitty!!!
Me: what? No way, you must be seeing things.
Bella: no I saw it!
Me: you’re nuts.
Bella: MOM! I HAVE EYES! YOU REMEMBER? I CAN SEE!
And then they got out of the box and were on her lap and she goes “I love you mommy” and also “you’re the best person in the whole world”
