Emma: Kate, pretend I need to brush my hair. Go get me a brush.
Kate: Uh, pretend I broke my eyes.
Kate walks up to me.
Kate: I need to tell you something. It’s a secret.
Me: Ok. (I put my ear down for her to whisper)
Kate and I were outside Emma’s school with Belle for “bring your pet to school” day. We were sitting waiting for the kids to come outside.
Kate: What are those birds doing?
Me: Just flying around.
Kate: Uh, I think they are playing tag.
Me: Emma, who plays at Arrowhead?
Kate: Ask me.
Me: Kate, who plays at Arrowhead?
Kate: NO ONE!
Kate: When you spit, it makes bubbles. It’s called spit bubbles. Right, mom?
I took the girls to Jason’s Deli for dinner. They serve free ice cream cones. I take the girls to the ice cream station.
Kate: Why do they give ice cream to kids?
Me: I think they just want to make sure kids are happy.
Kate: Oh. Ice cream makes me sad.
Me: Kate! Where are all my bobby pins?! I know you took them out of my bathroom.
Kate: Uh, probably the dogs ate them.
Me: Kate, go look for the remote.
Kate: (walks into my shower then walks out) Nope. Not in the shower!
The girls were playing with my high heels. Emma was wearing my red ones.
Me: You look like a little Dorothy! Do you know where she is from?
Emma: Disney World?
Me: Ok, girls. What do you want for breakfast?
Kate: Stop laughing at me, Emma! I don’t like people laughing at me because it hurts my ears!
I was at the grocery store with Kate. An announcer comes on saying something.
Kate: HEY SPEAKER! YOU KNOCK OFF THE ATTITUDE!
I was at Target with Kate. They had a bunch of check-out counters that were empty.
Kate: Where are all the workers?
Me: Uh, I don’t know. They just don’t keep enough workers to work the registers I guess.
Kate: Uh, probably they’re tired.
Kate brings me a stuffed dog.
Kate: Here’s my dog. His name is Julie. His middle name is Emma. And his last name is Kate. Is that funny, mom?
Me: KATE!!! Why are your new clothes in the trashcan?!
Kate: I don’t like those clothes anymore. They are bad.
Kate: Where are we going?
Scott: Bobby’s house.
Kate: Is Bobby a boy or a girl?
Me: A boy. He’s my cousin.
Kate: Oh. I like girls.
We were playing at our neighbors on the last day of school. A neighbor flooded the lot next to them to make a huge mud pit for the kids.
Kate threw a handful of mud at me.
Me: Hey! Don’t throw mud at me!
Emma: She thinks they are snowballs, mom. She also throws toys at me and says they are snowballs.
I was getting my haircut. My hair stylist gave the girls some water.
Me: Tell Allison thank you.
Emma: Thank you!
Kate: Uh, I’m too shy to say that.
I stopped the car because a female duck and her ducklings were crossing the road. (Adorable)
Emma: They should put a duck crossing sign here.
Me: That would be cute. But I don’t think the ducks would know where to cross.
Kate: They should put a hippo crossing sign here.
I was helping Kate get dressed.
Me: Here. One arm here.
Me: Ok, other arm.
Kate: HEY! You need to bless me first, mom!
Kate: Mommy. I love you like I love carrots.
It was raining a lot. Some areas were getting flooded around our neighborhood. We were driving through a big puddle.
Emma: Kate, do you know what a flood is?
Emma: It’s like a big swimming pool but it’s not a swimming pool. It’s bad.
