A few of my favorite comments from the kids the past few days:
On Sunday, Clara excitedley ran up to me with a "gift" in her hands. She handed me a small heavy object that was covered in a piece of printer paper. "Open it!"
Inside was a small ceramic box (that I already owned). "No, that's just holding your gift, mama. It's inside."
So I opened the box. Inside was............ my DENTAL FLOSS.
"Oh, wow! That's great!" I exclaimed.
She sighs a content sigh. And smiles big.
"I KNEW you'd love it!" she proclaims. :)
John (who is 2) falls asleep sobbing after throwing a massive fit about a popsicle.
I go in to get him when he wakes up.
First thing he says is: "Can I have popsicle?"
Me: "If you eat your lunch, then you can have one."
John: "Do you understand me? I just want a popsicle!!!"
I'm laying next to Clara, putting her to bed.
"Umm, mama? What day is it?"
"It's Monday, honey."
"Oh," she sighs, sounding defeated. "I have Wednesday undies on."
