Dead Legs, Dry Milk and a Penguin!

Taking the girls out for a walk/run in the evenings after we arrive home from school...
Claire: "I'm just hot and need some water"
Ellie: "You are just complaining cause Mommy says so"
Jenna: "I can't do this Mommy"
Mommy: "How come Jenna, you are a strong girl..come on, let's catch up to Claire and ELlie"
Jenna: "But I can't cause my legs are dead" (I say this phrase quite a bit after I've had a long run, so apparently she IS listening)

Eating supper last night...
Jenna: "Hey Ellie, do you like dry milk or wet milk?"
Ellie: "There isn't dry milk Jenna, only wet milk!"
Jenna: "Yes there is Eliie, see this cup is dry milk, and I don't like this one!" (the milk cup was therefor the milk was all dried up!)

Walking into my bathroom as Daddy is overseeing the boys playing in the bathtub....
John David: **Babbling while pulling his "penguin" and laughing at his Daddy**
Daddy: "Where's your penguin buddy?"
Daddy: "Good job John David, but don't pull to hard!"
John David: **Smiling really big while "pulling his penguin**...hahaha!

This morning I asked Jenna if she was excited about Ella's birthday party (her bestfriend).

Jenna: "I can't wait Mommy!"
Mommy: "Me too Jenna, I think you will love the tea party"
Jenna: "I bet she is going to have coffee for me"
Mommy: "Coffee?!, really, what kind do you think you'll have?"
Jenna: "I am choosing "Sprite Coffee" cause that is the kind I like"
Mommy: "Sprite Coffee sounds good!"
Jenna: "No, it sounds great"

"My Mom Said No"

Driving home from school, Claire was talking to my dad on my cell phone.

Claire: "Yes, we wore our shirts last night (talking about the Penguin shirts)"
Claire: "No, my mom said 'No'!"
**without smiling or laughing at all, speaking totally nonchalantly**
Claire: "Well, she just said 'No' cause she didn't want me to get into a conversation at school explaining why boys like to pull themselves!!!!"


And another Claire moment was also when she was talking to my dad one night, telling him all about her softball game.

Claire: "Guess what, I am playing first base now!"
MY Dad: "You know something, when I played baseball I was a first baseman too"
My Dad: (Laughing hysterically) "Well, yeah girl, there was baseball back when I was a kid!"
**Laughter all around on that one**

Ellie: "Hey mommy, I know who your real father is..not the pretend one but the real one?"
Mommy: "You do??, who is my real father Ellie?"
Ellie: "God is your real father and your pretend father on the Earth is Mose!"
Mommy: "Ellie, you crack me up girl!"
Ellie: "I know"

Jenna: "Hey Ellie give me that phone cause I need to text somebody."
Ellie: "Who?"
Jenna: "Just somebody so give it to me!!"
Mommy: "Can you ask nicely to borrow the phone and not use an ugly voice!?"
Jenna: "No..I mean Yes, sorry Mommy!"
