Me: We are going to Kansas.
My 3 yr old: Are we going to meet Dorothy?

“Go away to your miserable land of dark!”

My son’s cat was very rambunctious and starting fights with his sister cats, so I threw him outside this morning (he is an outside cat too). My son just got home (1/2 day) and let his cat in. I explained why he was outside. My sons response, “why don’t you throw Madison & Matthew outside. They start fights with me all the time!” Ahhh sibling love at it’s finest!

i had lunch with burger and the 1st graders today. at one point, burger tells me she understands what it means to be 6 years old. she says that means she has lived six years (i thought she knew that…my bad). so i ask the kids their ages (knowing they are all 6-7). then i ask them what my age is.


brynn: 27 (so off but lovely)
ava: 32 (awww…still lovely)
thomas: 42 (fine)
burger: 84 (what?)

burger followed her answer with a quick “89!” we all giggled when i said i was actually 112.

Last night Parker told me he wanted “that game called ‘I didn’t mean to do it'”. I told him that we don’t have any games with that name. After looking in our game closet, he finally helped me figure it out – he wanted “Sorry”. 🙂

James (6) was looking in the P’s in the dictionary: “Does this say ‘punishment’?”

Me: “Yes”

James: “Claire (8) needs one of those…”

Cleaning for company with two children underfoot is like setting up multiple blenders around the house and just allowing them to spew continuously while you scurry around trying to catch the all of the contents with a q-tip.

Last Sunday, during the Steelers game, I was screaming and yelling and swearing like a trucker. Marissa (6), waits for a pause in the verbal tornado to tell my friend, Russell…..”That’s our Dad!”

Claire (8): You know, the Pilgrims had three days of Thanksgiving.
James (6): Why do we only have one day?
Claire (after a moment of thought): Because we celebrate more efficiently.
