John Paul's gems from this week:
As soon as I opened his door in the morning: Goldilocks is coming to my birthday party!!!
John Paul: I'm inca-rigg-able!
Apparently he saw the word "Incorrigible" and accurately gleaned the proper meaning.
Playing with some trash he found in a shoe box: These are my tools. Mary Claire, I wanna FIX you!
John Paul: It's a SEX alien!!!
Me: ... A six alien?
John Paul: A sex alien (because it had seven toothpicks sticking out of it)
John Paul: Hi! I'm Jacob! I'm 7 years old.
Me: Who is Jacob?
JP: When I was a baby, I went to Jacob's birthday party.
Me: Okay, but what book is that from?
JP: Oh, the Jesus Storybook Bible. And Cecilia is Rebecca!
Because, you know, that's what normal kids pretend...
JP, discussing contents of the bathroom cabinet: Open up the cabinet and you'll find... a pregnancy test!!!"
Yup, signs you life in an NFP household...
John Paul, about a thousand times a day: The ant is my tiny friend!
Happy spring, ants everywhere!
Cecilia's gems from this week:
Seeing Mary Claire had freed her arms from her swaddler: *gasping* AAAARMS!!! She has aaaaaaaaaarms! I hold her hands! She wuvs me! I take her for a walk!
Cecilia, to the babysitter: It's a howiday today!
Babysitter: What holiday is it?
Cecilia: NO CWOTHES DAY!!!
And then she spent the morning in her underwear... Yup, I would have allowed it, too :P
Looking discerningly at Mary Claire: She CAN'T dance. She not old enough to STAND even!
Cecilia, about a thousand times a day: I need somethin to wipe my tears!!!
After our visit with the Martins:
Cecilia: I want to wear pwaid shorts wike MAGGIE!
JP: And I'm Eamon Philip! And when I'm 10 years old, I'll be BIG John-Paul!!!
Cecilia: And who I be?
Me: You can be Maggie.
Me: Do you want to be Xander?
Cecilia: No. He's a boy. I'M GOLDILOCKS!!!
Mary Claire's new talent:
Elizabeth's creepy noise:
Seriously, why does she "coo" while breathing in???
And now, the best conversation you will ever read:
Cecilia: What's dat in da potty?
Me: ...That's your diarrhea.
C: John Paul has wed diawea and I have purple diawea! It's so beautiful!
C: I WUV pink diawea! It's my favowite!
C: What got on my booty?
Me: Still your diarrhea...
C: It's so beautiful!!!
For the full effect, you need to imagine this with full knowledge of her squeaky voice (you can stop after the first 30 seconds or so):
And now for my last take... A tribute to my mom!!!
Because I had the nerve to be born 1 hour and 43 minutes before her 30th birthday, so we will forever have birthdays one day apart. Happy Birthday to the woman who carried me under her heart for 9. loooooong. months. And gave birth to me in proloooonged and excruuuuciating agony!
