Conversation with my 3 yr olds....

Last night, I was just so exhausted so I joked around with Cole and Bella, saying "can you all just read yourselves some bedtime stories and put yourselves to bed?". They looked at me very seriously and said:

Cole: We can't read ourselves bedtime stories because we're not parents.

Bella: Yeah, we're just little kids AND I don't know how to read.

Me: When will you know how to read?

Cole: In about 50 wait, not quite 50 hours. Maybe 10 minutes.

Bella: It's gonna take me 2 weeks to learn how to read.

Cole: Shut-up Bella

Bella: No, you shut up...

Cole: I'm not your friend

Bella: Well, I'm not your twin anymore

Cole: I don't care...maybe then you'll shut up

Then, while trying really hard to not laugh, I had to explain to them that telling each other to "shut up" wasn't nice. So Cole told Bella "shut your pie hole" and then turned to me and said "that was okay, I didn't say shut up, I just told her to shut her pie hole". Who knew 3 yrs old could reason and justify?

BTW, thanks for the comments yesterday about being world's worst mother. I'm comforted to know I'm not the only one who is challenged by parenthood on a daily basis!!

Too funny...I like how they are just chatting about how long it's going to take to learn how to read and Cole says shut up, where did that come from LOL

Chatabox girl, thank you so much! I'm glad my blog makes you smile!

Joy, I dunno, it did kinda come out of left field. I think he just doesn't like when he thinks Bella is trying to show him up or something. It's his new thing...all she has to do is look at him cross-eyed and he tells her to shut-up. Awww, brotherly love!

Helene, Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog! I really appreciate it and had to come check out yours! Your post today made me laugh and I had to share it with my Mom. Your kiddies are so cute!

You are an inspiration for me - it is great to meet another twin Mom especially a mother of 2 sets of twins. Wow!

LOL that sounds like a covo in my house. It's a good thing to know I amnot alone !!

I figure that if the children are alive when my husband gets home at the end of the day, I've done my job.
