Pin It They have had me laughing lately.
The oldest - her sister walked off, leaving the refrigerator door open. Oldest says "Leaving the door open is the worst mistake anybody can make becaaaaaaaauuuuuse .....???" Silence. Then she says "HEY, someone is supposed to finish the quote!" More silence. Then she hollers out "It could let in a GIRAFFE!!"
Um, hon? That would be DRAFT. Not giraffe. So now I've been teasing her about letting giraffes in the house when she leaves the door open.
(And yes, I told her that was blog fodder and she's reasonably okay with that.)
The middle one - she and I are going on a mother-daughter date in a couple of weeks. I did this with the oldest and I'm looking forward to it with the middle one. I told her that it was a two hour drive from here to where we're going and she said she would bring her DSi in the car. Then she said "oh wait. I'll bet you want to talk to me about puberty in the car, so maybe I shouldn't bring it."
I nearly fell over from laughing.
(And yep, she knows I'm posting this too. She may be less delighted with me posting this story when we're actually on our trip and she finds out what puberty actually means! haha!)
And then there's the little one. All five year olds are a riot by nature of being five. Jim has this plaque thingie he's making to hold his coins that he has from military things. The little one thinks these are very cool. Sunday night he was looking at them wistfully and said to Jim, "Someday when you're dead, can I have one of those?" Completely innocent. I laughed so hard I cried.
It also cracks me up when he asks which foot his shoe goes on. I'll tell him, he'll put that shoe on, then will ask me which foot his other shoe goes on. Ummm ... thinking maybe you could figure that one out on your own, kiddo! :-P
