- "Thank you, waiter." - which she says when anyone approaches our table in a restaurant. She was saying it to Daddy at home too, but he's trying to convince her that he isn't her waiter.
- "Pay cashier." - which she chants almost the entire time we are in the grocery store. As if I might forget and dash out to the car with my cart full of shoplifted groceries.
Also, at least once daily Matilda drags some bags out, throws them over her shoulder, and announces "Shop." When questioned about what she's shopping for she always says food. Never toys, never clothes, just food. A girl after my own heart.
