We were driving in the car during a rainstorm. After a flash of lightning Emma said, "The lightning take a picture of me!!"
We were at Fry's Electronics and there was a man in line ahead of us with an eye patch. Michael tugged on my shirt and said, "Mom, why is that guy a pirate?"
Michael was playing with some sticks, and I overheard him saying in a deep voice, "We are the trees. Alligators, you can't take our monkeys and snap them up! We are protecting them." (like the song "Five Little Monkeys Swinging in the Trees")
Katelynn was upset with me about something and she said, "You have to be a nice mommy or we will call Grandmas & Grandpa and they will come down and get us and we will go with them and you and Daddy will come home all alone and stay here in this house forever and we will stay with Grandma & Grandpa!" Ouch! Then, when I told Scott about it, he said his response would have been,"Then get the phone & call 'em!". I couldn't do that. I was too shocked.
Katelynn & I were blog-surfing and we came to my sister-in-law's blog. Katelynn looked at the screen and exclaimed, "Hey, why'd Oakley (her cousin) get big?!". That's just what happens, kid.
When I tell the kids they can't have something & they say, "But, I *want* it!", I sing to them "You can't always get what you wa-ant." (ever since the last episode of Glee ;)). A minute ago I heard Katelynn in the other room singing ,"You can always get what you wa-ant. But, you have to say ple-ease."
