Things My 2-Year-Old Niece Says

A collection of sassy comments from my 2-year-old niece and favorite photo subject, Leyla.

On my tonsillectomy: "The doctor cut your mouth open? (pause) Good."

On my curly hair: "What the fuck are you wearing?"

On my sister Maya wishing her a good morning: "Stop it Maya, just stop it."

On my sister Brooke (Leyla's mother) speaking: "Mommy shut your mouth. Mommy. Just. Shut. Your. Mouth."
