The girls have been chatting away as usual. Here are some of the cute things they have said this week:
While debriefing about Kyra's day at school:
Kyra: Mom, today we celebrated the Chinese New Year at school.
Mom: Oh, that's great honey, what did you do?
Kyra: Well, we decorated a dragon and I got to be the head at one time. Then Ann's mom (who maybe Chinese? I'm not sure), came in and talked about some of the things they did to celebrate their New Year. She even spoke Spanish. And I think they went to China yesterday to celebrate.
(hmmm... yeah. A Chinese mom, speaking Spanish, and flying to China over night...I think some details got lost along the way :)
While eating dinner:
Kyra: Mommy, how come you talk to Daddy the whole time during dinner, and I don't get a chance to.
Mommy: I'm sorry Kyra, sometimes I just get carried away after not seeing him all day. And sometimes we have important grown up things to discuss.
Kyra: Well I haven't seen Daddy all day either.
Mommy: I know, but guess what. Next week we are going on vacation and he will be with us all week. Then we can both talk to Daddy.
Kyra: Good. I'm going to talk to him all day long. I'll talk right to his eyes and his skin. Talk, talk, talk.
(oh boy daddy, looks like you're not going to have much time to think next week. You've got three gabby girls here!)
While disciplining Katie for playing with her food:
Daddy: (he takes her plate away) I'm sorry Katie, that was your last chance to eat your food. I've given you a warning, and now I'm taking your plate away.
Katie: But Daddy, I'm hungry (enter sobbing).
Daddy: Then you should have eaten it instead of making a mess of it on your plate.
Katie: Then I'm going to eat YOU Daddy.
Daddy: (he whips out his big toe and thumb) Go ahead, I think my thumb should be mighty tasty.
Everyone: (enter laughter)
While catching Katie being naughty (she gets very embarrassed and defensive when she's caught):
Mommy: Katie, you know you shouldn't be talking back. That's being disrespectful.
Katie: I can't wait till I'm a mommy and I can do whatever I want and not listen to anyone (she says very matter of fact).
(right... because Mom's get to do whatever they want.)
