Oh Emma, Oh Kate

Kate: Can I have some grapes?
Me: Uhhh…looks like we’re out.
Kate: ARE YOU SERIOUS?!

———–

Me: What do you want for dinner, Kate? Should we make tacos?
Kate: Lets make Chik-Fil-A.

———–

(Picked up Kate from preschool, in car.)

Me: Kate, did you have fun at school today?
Kate: Ugh! Mom! I so tired there! And they no have couches to lay on!

————

(Doing laundry, Kate walked in)

Kate: Why you moving clothes over?
Me: Because these clothes are wet and they need to dry in dryer.
Kate: Oh. Clothes are wet? Why you not wear gloves?

————-

Me: Ok Kate, it’s your week to bring a snack for your friends at school. What do you want to bring?
Kate: Uh…apples!
Me: Ok, that will be easy.
Kate: And sausage!

————-

Me: (singing to Ariel’s “Part of That World”) Look at this stuff….isn’t it neat?
Kate: (singing back to me the tune of the next verse) You-need-to-quit-sing-ing-thaaaa-aaaat-song!

————-

I finished my plate at dinner.

Kate: Good job, mommy! You’re such a big girl! You eat so good!

Kate’s teacher emailed a song to the parents that the kids really like in preschool. I played it for Kate.

Kate: Noooo! I don’t like that song! Play Call Me Maybe song!!!

————

Me: Kate, do you like being called Kate? Or Kitty?
Kate: Uh…Kate. And I like Kitty. And I like you too.

Me: Let’s call Papa. Ask if he’s with Uncle Mark.
Kate: Haaaa! I not saying dat!!!!

Kate: What does skin mean?
Me: Skin? You know what that is.
Kate: WHAT DOES SKIN MEAN?!
Me: (look at tv she was watching and it was a Proactive Skin Cleaner commercial)

Emma: Mom, what are you going to be for Halloween?
Me: Duchess of Cambridge. Kate. Princess Kate.
Kate: (whispers) She’s going to be me.

————-

Emma: Mom what’s those signs on the ground?
Me: Oh that’s a cemetery. It marks where the bodies are buried.
Emma: But why would they bury people with spiders and worms down there?
Me: It’s just what some people do.
Emma: But I thought they go to heaven when they die?
Me: They do but their body stays here. Remember when I told you about your soul? It’s what makes you, you.
Emma: Ohhhhh! I get it! Your soul makes your body move. Well, and your bones.

Emma was watching me read an article about Bill Snyder. She pointed to his picture.

Emma: Who’s that?
Me: Emma! You know who that is!
Emma: uhhhhh
Me: The legend? Kate! Who’s the legend?
Kate: (yelling from another room) He on book in bathroom!
Me: (yelling back to her) What’s his name?
Kate: Bill Synder!

Emma: (yelling from upstairs) Mom! Kate keeps sticking things up my butt!

————–

Me: Come on cars!
Kate: Why you say come on cars?
Me: It’s a green light and they are not going. They need to hit it!
Kate: Yeah mom! Hit the cars! Go!

————-

I walked in bathroom where I heard water running. The door was locked but not pushed in all way so I easily walked in by pushing on door.

Kate: (sitting near sink rubbing bubbles on mirror) Hey! How you get in here! I locked you out!

————

Kate: Wook! Mom! I found our (play) horseshoes! Now I need a horse!

————

My back was to Kate but I could hear her jumping on couch.

Me: Stop jumping on couch, please!
Kate: But you can’t see me!

————

I walk into Home Depot with girls. They both start pointing with a gun hand motion and yelling “bang!”

Me: What are doing? Sit down in the cart, please.
Emma: It’s a deer, mom!
Me: (I look up and see a lit up Rudolph for a yard) No! That’s Rudolph! You can’t shoot him! He brings Santa!
Kate: Bang! I got Rupolph! Haaaaaa

————-

I bought Kate a “Trick or Treat” sign in dollar section of Target.

Me: Here. You can put this in your window. It says “Trick or Treat”
Kate: Oh yes. It says “Trick or Treat. Smell my feet. I pull down your underwear.”

————-

Me: Girls! Guess what?! Aunt Jenna is having a baby GIRL!!! Eeeeeeee!!
Emma: What did they take the baby out and look then put it back or something?

————-

Me: Kate! Brett is coming today! Do you remember Brett? Daddy’s hunting friend?
Kate: No. He got a dog?
Me: No, no dog. Just Brett.
Kate: Uhhhh… I want another daddy’s friend. With a dog.

Leaving for school in morning.

Emma: Ok, I’m ready.
Me: Lets wait ten minutes. Still early. They won’t let you in this early. You will have to wait with the bus kids outside.
Emma: Mom, I just walk past the bus kids. They let me just walk in. I have been the first one in my class before.

————-

At Hobby Lobby. Looking at Christmas decorations.
Me: Here Kate, do you want to put this glittery pink deer in your room?
Kate: Uh, I want a shoot the deer one.

Still at Hobby Lobby. Kate picks out some expensive toy.

Me: No, we are not getting that. Let’s put it on your Christmas list.
Kate: Ok. We put it on my list. (Throws the toy in my cart)

I took the girls shopping for some more winter clothes. I’m browsing clothes for Emma while she looks at accessories. I return to her and her hands are filled with about ten different necklaces and bracelets and hair accessories.

Me: Emma! Noooo! You are not getting all of this.
Emma: (dead serious expression) Mom. I just really love shopping.
Me: (laughing) Oh no.
Emma: Mom. I can’t stop.

————-

Taking girls through a drive-thru. I order and go to window.

Kate: Watch me Emma! This is so fun! (Rolls down window and speaks to employee) HI!!! HOW ARE YOU TODAY?

————-

Emma: Mom! I know how to spell CVS! Wanna hear?

————

Eating tacos for dinner.

Me: Kate. You’re a taco head.
Kate: You a taco booty. Your booty looks like a taco! Haaaaa!!

I had a giant spider on my house. I was on roof taking it down. Kate was watching from window.

Kate: Why you take down spider?
Me: It’s not Halloween anymore. Ready for next holiday.
Kate: K-State holiday?
Me: Ha! What?
Kate: You got K-State flag right dere. Down dere! See?

Emma: Is there such thing as an angel?
Me: Sure. Remember when I told you (my aunt) Mary went to heaven? She’s an angel now. And she’s watching over you because she loves you so much.
Emma: Ohhh. (Smiles big) She’s in heaven watching us.
Me: Yep.
Kate: Mary live in big house?

  1. Ohhhh…HA HA HA! This is so funny and cute and precious! There is nothing better than the things little kids say! Thanks for sharing these. You made my day! I have a daughter who is preschool age and I think that is one of the funniest ages for kids to be.

    Tell Kate that I think sausage compliments apples quite well…
