Oh Emma, Oh Kate.

Kate’s backpack has peace signs on it. Emma was examining it in the car.

Emma: What does this peace sign mean?

Me: Well…like no fighting…peace, like everyone is happy.

Kate: See Emma! This says no fighting over my backpack!

_________

Emma: Hey! Wait a minute! So when Kate’s at school and I am at school, you won’t have any kids to watch!

Me: Yep! Only for a few hours though.

Emma: A few hours without fighting in the house!

_________

Emma had a cavity filled. I was called back after she was done. Kate started to cry.

Dentist: Oh no! Why is she crying?

Kate: I want a cavity too!

Me: She wants a cavity too. (laugh)

Dentist: Here, she can have a cookie.

_________

I was driving with Kate. We saw a school bus with kids in it. It was about lunchtime.

Kate: What’s that bus doing with kids?

Me: Oh it’s probably picking up kindergarten, I bet.

Kate: I wanna pick up in bed too!

_________

Scott went gator hunting in south Florida. Our friend Casey spent the night, the night before they left. Kate woke up after they were gone.

Kate: Where’s Casey?

Me: Casey is gone for a few days.

Kate: I’ll get my swimsuit and wait for him.

Me: No, lets not do that.

Kate: I gotta pee really bad! Take my pants off!

(I take them off, and she runs off. She runs back to me with her swimsuit on.)

Kate: HAAAAA! Tricked you! I got my swimsuit on now!

_________

I could hear Emma and Kate have a conversation while they were coloring.

Kate: Ok, what is your middle name?

Emma: Grace. Kinda like grease.

_________

Kate: Who is your favorite dog? Bailey or Belle?

Emma: Kate! That is a really rude question. I’m not picking.

_________

Emma: Mom, why do you call Aunt JJ, JJ?

Me: Because our mom didn’t want everyone to call her Jessie since her name is Jessica. So we called her JJ instead.

Emma: Well, I like Jessie. Jessie is a cute name. Maybe they would think she was named after Jessie in Toy Story.

__________

Me: Kate! I said NO!

Kate: What does NO mean?

(I was left speechless…)

__________

Scott and I were taking Kate to school in the car.

Kate: Dad?

Scott: Yes?

Kate: Whatever.

__________

I could overhear another Emma and Kate conversation.

Kate: Kid tooted in school today.

Emma: (laughing) What did you say?

Kate: Do it again! (laughs)

__________

I told Emma night before school that she should have hot lunch the next day because it included cinnamon rolls. Emma chose cold lunch instead.

After school….

Me: Did the cinnamon rolls look good?

Emma: Yes.

Me: I told you…should have gotten the hot lunch!

Emma: Well, mom. Not THAT good. They, like, didn’t even have icing on it.

_________

In the car with the girls.

Kate: Why we gotta wear seatbelts?

Me: To keep everyone safe. It holds you to your seat if I were to crash.

Emma: Yeah, if mommy crashes, we would go flying out the window. Right, mom?

Me: Yes, it’s possible.

Emma: Like Tinkerbell!

_________

Kate climbed in bed with Scott and I one morning. Scott was wearing his typical sleepwear of boxer briefs.

Kate: Why do boys sleep naked?

Scott: What?

Kate: You naked. Why do boys sleep naked like that?

________

I turned on the TV and tennis was on.

Kate: Is this K-State or Chiefs?

Me: It’s tennis. It’s not K-State or Chiefs.

Kate: Oh. I don’t like tennis.

________

One of my favorite bloggers, My Life and Kids, has a video of how to make fart noises with a straw (Watch the video here) I was practicing in the kitchen in front of Kate.

Kate: Mom! Stop it!

(I straw fart.)

Kate: Mom! I don’t like that noise! Stop!

(I straw fart.)

Me: Why, Kate? It’s funny (I straw fart.)

Kate: Mom! No!

Me: Do you want to try?

Kate: (smiles) Yeah, yeah! Let me try!

________

I am working on Christmas lists for my in-laws and parents.

Me: Kate, what do you want for Christmas?

Kate: Ummmm… a Christmas tree!

Me: Ok, what else?

Kate: Lights and ornaments!

________

Me: Emmmmma! Come here!

(silence)

Me: Emmmaaa! Princess Emma!

(from the stairs)

Emma: Mom. I’m not a princess yet. Wait until I marry a prince like Princess Kate did in England.

________

Me: Hi Kate! How was school today?

Kate: Teacher said I could go to Nana’s house tomorrow. She said it’s ok.

________

Me: Kate, what do you want to do on our mommy and Kate day?

Kate: Uh…call Papa and tell him to get me some doughnuts.

Me: Kate, lets paint your room! What color should we paint it?

Kate: Ummmm…Black.

Me: You want a black room?

Kate: Yes. And spider webs on the ceiling.
