Kate was playing with two foam balls. She puts them in her shirt.
Kate: Nana! I got thingies like mommy! Haaaaa!!
Emma: I love the smell of dog food.
Me: Ugh. Emma, it’s supposed to snow today.
Kate: (Looks out window) Hey! No, it’s not! I don’t see the dots!
Scott and gave me a hug in the kitchen then dipped and kissed me.
Kate: Hey! Get out of here! Go downstairs and do that!
Me: Kate did you color on your face with blue marker?
Kate: Yeah, and my tongue too. (sticks it out and it’s totally blue)
Emma had a friend over for a playdate. The girls were playing upstairs then Kate runs down to me.
Kate: Where do flowers come from?
Me: A seed.
Kate: Where does Emma’s friend come from?
Me: Um….a seed? (laugh)
Kate: Oh. (runs off)
Our dog had a tumor on the base of her tail. It was actually breaking through the skin and bleeding. It looked like a red dot. We didn’t know it was a tumor until we took her to the vet.
Scott: I don’t know if she cut herself or what. Hold still, Bailey. I’ll call the vet.
Kate: (looks at her tail) Ha! It’s just a red nerd. It’s ok.
I walked into my bathroom where Kate was taking a bath. There were bubbles all over the wall and the ceiling.
Me: KATE! No! You can’t throw bubbles everywhere!
Kate: I just making (claps bubbles) FIREWORKS!!! Woo-hooo!
I was picking up Kate after school.
Me: Are you hungry? We have a lot of errands to run. Here let’s just go to Chipotle real quick.
Kate: Hope that’s not expensive.
Me: Oh no! Kate did you eat all the chocolate?
Kate: No. No. It’s just sitting in my tummy for a little bit.
Me: Awwww! Kate, your preschool pictures are so cute! Did they make you laugh or did you smile by yourself?
Kate: Uh. I make them laugh.
Emma: Knock knock.
Me: Who’s there.
Kate: HAAAA!!! Emma is a banana.
Kate: Mommy, will you play hide and seek with me?
Me: Ok. I’ll count.
Kate: Here will you shut the closet door when I go in there?
Kate: Spongebob says bad words.
Me: Yes, he does.
Kate: He doesn’t say KU though. KU is a bad word.
Emma: Whoa, that’s a pretty building.
Me: It’s a church.
Kate: HA! Eric Church.
I was holding my newborn niece, Evelyn.
Kate: Her hands are so tiny. Her ears are so tiny too. Her head is not.
I was still holding Evelyn.
Kate: Uh…what would happen if someone stabbed a fork in Evelyn’s eye?
Emma: It’s my turn to play on the iPad, Kate.
Kate: Let’s play you are Kate and I am Emma. It’s Emma’s turn.
I was painting Kate’s room. Emma walks in.
Emma: Uh, mom? Are you going to paint my room too?
Me: Not today. But eventually, yes.
Emma: Uh, I have something to tell you. Um, if you move my bed there might be a lot of toys under there.
Me: Kate, what do you want for breakfast?
Kate: Lettuce and chips.
Our babysitter, Erin, was watching Kate while I was at work.
Erin: Do you want to go see Evelyn?
Kate: Uh, will she be off or on?
Erin: Off or on? Was she sleeping last time you saw her?
Kate: Yeah, she was off.
Me: Kate, what did you do with Brooklyn on your playdate? Did you play outside?
Kate: (blows a fart noise from her mouth) That means yes.
