Chit Chat

Here are a few of the conversations that have happened around our house in the past few days. Enjoy!

Discussing the scrape on T's chin
Me: "What happened?"
T: "Mad E" (Maddie, my parent's dog)
Me: "What did she do?"
Me: "What did Jackpaw say?"
This part changes depending on the mood. One answer is "No, no", but my favorite is: "Gummit!"

Yesterday we had an unfortunate incident involving my two boys and a metal hoe. This was the back of Z's head as a result:

(This picture was taken after much drama, lots of blood, several calls to the doctor, hiding under the bed to prevent an ER visit and, finally, some liquid band-aid.)
Here is T's account of what happened to brother:
Me: "What happened?"
T: "Owww!"
Me: "What did you do?"
T: "SHOBEL!" (shovel--his term for anything that works in the dirt)
Me: "T, you don't hit. That hurt your brother's head!"
T: "Sowwy." (with a huge smile on his face)

Z asks me this morning before going to KK's to swim:
"Why can't you just borrow one of KK's swimsuits?"
Me: "Well, we aren't exactly the same size."
Z: "Yeah, you are bigger than her."
Me: "She is very skinny. I want to be that skinny."
Z: "Mama..."
Me: "Yes?"
Z: "You're not."

And just in case that didn't put me back in my place...

While on my back in the pool:
Z: "Mama, what did you put in your hair?"
Me: "Just mousse, why?"
Z: "It really smells."
Me: "Do you like the way that it smells?"
Z: "NO! It stinks!"

Poor kid...a chubby mom with stinky hair!!

Oh, these kids! Some love really must 'be blind' is what their Jackpaw would say! Thanks for the laughs from 'the mouths of babes'!

These chit-chats always make my day--I'm laughing out loud about the swimsuit and stinky hair. Where does he come up with this stuff!?!?!

How's his cut?
