Daddy, Strawbery Banana Lips, Bras....
wow, I am behind...been so busy lately..but here are a few recent "comments" from my kiddos...
Ellie: "Mommy, have you ever noticed Daddy has bumping arms, ya know, kind of chunky"
Mommy: "I think what you mean is that Daddy has 'muscular' arms.."
Ellie: "Oh okay, I thought they were just bumpy"
We have our house for sale and I recently told the girls that we had to pick up the house for Mr. Ben to come over and see it. Jenna says:
"Is he a new daddy...like the old daddy, but better?"
Tucking Jenna in the bed (claire's bed) for naptime....
Mommy: "Jenna I smell strawberry banana..did you get into Claire's lipstick again?"
Mommy: "Jenna it is important to tell the truth, so you need to just tell me if you took some of Claire's strawberry-banana lipstick"
Jenna: (using her sweetest smile and voice) "No Mommy, you are smelling my spit!!"
Mommy: (leaning in to give her a big ole kiss) "Jenna girl, I smell it on your lips..I know you took her lipstick!"
Jenna: "Mommy I am 'for real' not pretend..I didn't get hers lips"
AND SURE ENOUGH, I REALIZE THAT THE GIRL IS BEING TRUTHFUL...IT DAWNED ON ME THAT SHE HAD A STRAWBERRY BANANA GOGURT FOR LUNCH!!! Hahaha.
Bra Shopping with Claire...
Mommy: "Claire Bear, I can't believe you are going to fourth grade and we are shopping for bras"
Claire: "Well, you know there are different kinds of bras"
Mommy: "Yes, I do. Why don't you share with me what you are talking about"
Claire: "Well, there are three kinds. A regular kind, a sporty kind and a cone kind"
Mommy: (with a strange look on her face) "What in the world is a 'cone kind' of bra?"
Claire: "You know, the kind that poke out with the bar on the bottom"
Mommy: (laughing hysterically inside my head) "Oh yes, I know what you mean"
Claire: "But I don't have anything to put in the cone kind yet, so a regular one will be just fine!!!!!"
LAUGHING OUT LOUD in my head of course...
