Oh Emma, Oh Kate.

I was at Taco Bell ordering lunch for Kate and me. Kate rolls down her window and shouts my order after me. It was like an echo. Then I get up to the window to pay.

Employee: That’ll be $6.45

Kate: What’s his name?

Me: I dunno…

Employee: Here’s your card.

(I thank him and start to slowly pull forward to the next window. As I am pulling forward, Kate’s window passes his open window. She has her arms hanging out the side of the car, straining her head out as far as it will go.)

Kate: HEY! WHAT’S YOUR NAME?!

(I keep driving forward so the employee didn’t get a chance to answer her. She just keeps rolling by.)

________

Emma: Guess what, Kate? My birthday is in 40 days!

Kate: Yay, Emma! Gimme hug.

________

We were eating lunch at a restaurant with Nana. The waitress brings our drinks.

Waitress: Here you go (sets drink in front of Kate)

Kate: Good job!

________

When Nana came in town, we were talking about what to do for the day. I suggested the new aquarium at Crown Center but I wondered about the weather so we were online checking tornado watches.

Emma: I want to go to the aquarium!

Nana: Well, we might have to wait until tomorrow. We don’t want to go and be stuck there if tornados are coming. Tomorrow might be better.

Emma: No!!…But…but tomorrow never comes!

Nana: (laughing) Where did you hear that?

Emma: When I don’t want to wear an outfit to school, I tell mommy I’ll wear it tomorrow and mommy says tomorrow never comes.

________

Easter morning. Emma comes running in our room, waking us up.

Emma: COCK-A-DOODLE-DOOOOO!!!!

________

In the car, girls talking to each other:

Kate: You tooted?

Emma: No.

Kate: Why not?

Emma: I dunno.

________

Kate came up to me showing me her drawing.

Me: Yeah, Kate! You’re such a good artist! High five!

(gives me a high five)

Me: Another high five!

Kate: You can put your hand down now. (runs off)

________

Kate was watching a video on the iPad in the car. The movie was over and I could hear the “credits” song at the end.

Kate: Ugh! Mom! You made me die!

Me: You’re watching a video. It’s not a game. It’s just over.

Kate: You made me die.

________

Me: Kate, what do you want for lunch?

Kate: Black beans.

Me: You had that yesterday for lunch! What about barbeque?

Kate: No. Black beans.

Me: What about barbeque beans?

Kate: Black. Beans. Hold on a second, mommy. (She picks up her play phone) Hello, Nana. Can I have black beans? Ok bye. Mommy! Nana said I could have black beans!

Me: I think she said barbeque.

Kate: Hold on. (picks up phone again) Hello, Papa. Will you bring me some black beans? Ok. Dank you. Mommy! Papa is bringing me black beans.

Me: Does Papa know how to say no to anything?

Kate: No. Papa said in ten minutes.

I took the girls to Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead on a playdate with friends. We saw a show about bunnies. Then the kids got to pet the bunny afterwards.

In car, going home.

Me: Emma, do you remember what a baby boy bunny is called?

Emma: A buck!

Me: Good! And what’s a baby girl bunny called?

Emma: A doe!

Me: Good job, Em! Good memory!

Emma: (musical scale) DO…RE…MI…FA…SO…LA…TI…BABY GIRL BUNNYYYYYYY!!!

_________

Emma: Mom. Do you know what the lightest color in the world is?

Me: Tell me.

Emma: White. And the sun.

_________

Emma playing a game on the iPad.

Emma: Hey mom! I got 5 million, 3 thousand and 1 million as a high score. You think Uncle Mark got that high?

_________

One morning. I could feel someone pulling open my eyelid. I squint and see Kate’s face in my face.

Kate: I want chocolate milk.

Me: Ugh…hold on.

Kate: (pulls my eyelid open again) No.

Later, in kitchen.

Me: Kate did you pull open my eye this morning?

Kate: Yeah! I couldn’t reach that eye, it was on pillow.

__________

Kate: Is (uncle) Mark coming to my house?

Me: Yep! Few more days.

Kate:  In ten minutes?

__________

Emma: What time it it, mommy?

Me: Uh, I can’t see the clock from here.

Emma: You need a bigger clock.

Kate: I need big cock, too!

__________

Oh Scott…..

Emma: I can spell “dad”. D-A-D

Scott: I can spell supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

Me: Oh! That reminds me! I have Mary Poppins coming next on Netflix!

Scott: Who’s Mary Poppins?

Me: Oh my gosh. Where do you think you heard supercalifragilisticexpialidocious?

Scott: I dunno. I thought it was a cartoon or something.

Me: Are you kidding me? Did you have a normal childhood? (I pick up my phone)

Scott: Don’t tweet that. It will take you a month to spell that out.

  1. LOL! I love these posts! I just recently started following your blog and these remind me of the conversations I have with my daughter. I must say, some of them leave me totally confused as she walks away totally content with the conversation she and I had.
