Some recent conversations with the kids
Middle runs away from me in a crowded place. Far away. After getting lost twice in two days. I find her and pick her up.
Me: You cannot run away from Mommy like that. You are going to have a serious consequence this time.
Middle: Like a spanking?
Me: No, but it will be something serious.
Middle: Like prison?
We're at the grocery store and Middle wants to pick out milk based on the color on the carton. I grab some milk and we check out. On the way to the car . . .
Middle: Mommy, do you pour the milk into your breast?
Middle: To feed the baby. How does it get in there?
We're walking along and Big asks me what "loyalty" means. I thought that was a tough one to explain but I did my best. Then, after a few minutes, she hits me with this. I think it's from listening to a Taylor Swift song too many times.
Big: When someone says "I like . . . " or "I was like . . . " and then a sentence, do they mean that that's what they thought or that's what they actually said?
It took a few tries to understand what she was saying but she wanted the literal explanation of what it means when someone talks like this: "So, I was like 'you are so weird' "
I can't wait to see what Tiny baby comes up with when she can talk!
