Well, today is Andrew's and my 11-year anniversary of being together (5 years married at the end of June), so of course I'm celebrating by being up at the crack of not even dawn and heading out on an all-day amusement park trip with 100 middle school students. SO to ease your pain at the separation from me, here are some funny things the kids have been saying!
Me: Cecilia, watch out. Elizabeth pooped on the floor.
Cecilia: No, she pooped on da WUG!
Me: Well yes, she pooped on the rug.
Cecilia: And H-I-C-J spells WUG!
Me: No, R-U-G spells rug.
Cecilia: And I-H-G spells wug!!!
Well, we're getting closer than her most recent attempts of lining up 3 random letters on the fridge and telling me they spell things like "Mrs. Mouseling" and "Angelina Ballerina."
|Thank goodness she has impeccable fashion sense to go along with her genius!|
John Paul: Here's how you play "The Wedding Feast at Cana"
First, you take some water in some cups.
Next, you crack an egg (he cracks a toy egg).
Third, you pour some water into the yellow bowl.
Disappointed: It's still water.
Let's play "The Washing of the Feet!"
JP: Mom! I'm changing water into wine. It's my first miracle!
He has since moved on the playing "The Martyrdom of Sts. Felicity and Perpetua," in which he cuts off Elizabeth and Cecilia's heads... Just like any normal 3-year-old, right?
Me: Cecilia, are you going to be a flower girl in August?
JP: Yes! And I'm going to be a LEAF BOY!!!
Cecilia, giggling and farting: A waspbewwy comed out of my boooooty!!!
Cecilia, breathlessly: Here's your party hat, Mom!
She presents me with her cup from breakfast with a little bit of milk left in the bottom
Me: Thank you, Cecilia!
Cecilia: Put it on!!!
John Paul, jumping in front of Elizabeth: She's so impressed! *jump, jump* She's happy! *jump, jump* She wants to say, "Wow! Look at that kid jumping!!!"
Yup, that's Elizabeth's impressed face, all right...
John Paul, holding a cup he had just filled with water and taking a sip: There's an ant in my cup! Now it's bug juice!!!
Well, at least he's not afraid of ants anymore? To be clear, he had left it in the playroom, where the ants like to congregate because the kids leave food on their table...
