double take ...

I often wonder about the thought processes of my children. I am treated on a daily basis to their craziness, and um, childhood logic. In recent days, all three of my girls have said or done something that made me do a double take. I know, you're shocked.

Dizzle: If you've ever seen Dizzle, you know that she is a miniature version of me. She loves this fact (I'm sure she won't in about 10 years) and she CONSTANTLY rubs it in Doodle's face. Yesterday, Dizzle came up to me and said ...

"Mom, we are twins. But we are NOCTURNAL twins, because we don't have the same birthday."

That's right, Dizzle. We are nocturnal twins. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

(me and my nocturnal twin)

Doodle: On a daily basis, I tell my children that I am a vampire, as I have extremely sharp and pointy canine teeth (also known as fangs). Doodle has recently realized that she too has similar canine teeth. Because of this, she now believes she is part vampire. Yesterday, she said to me ...

"Mom, when did we go to Vampire World? Was it like when I was zero? Cuz that's when I got my vampire teeth, right?"

Sure, Doodle. We frequent Vampire World ALL.THE.TIME. That's totally how you got your fangs. It wasn't genetics or anything.


Dilly: On Sunday, I found Dilly watching TV like this.

LMAO! Over the weekend, I told Shoo to stop being a Bull in a china shop. He looked at me, all confused, and asked me why I called him a BOWL in a china shop. LOL

Kids are so much fun. Mine drive me nuts sometimes, but I love being with them and seeing them grow and learn.

They say the funniest things!

I was stealing something off my son's plate, he is 5, and he said "NO DAD! I don't want you to be fat again!" Wow... talk about humble pie.
