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?
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?

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.

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.

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.

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?

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

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.
