My friend, Missy, at Two Little Monkeys hosts a weekly meme called "Say What Wednesdays" and since the kids have been rather entertaining lately I thought I'd jot down a few of their recent conversations.
Garrett: Mommy, are we on earth?
Me: Well, I am...I don't know where you are.
Cole: Bella, give me that piece of paper over there or I'm not gonna draw with you anymore.
Me: Cole, do you realize you'd catch more flies with honey than vinegar?
Cole: WHAT?! Who said anything about catching flies. Plus I don't even know what vinegar is.
Me: Life lessons are totally lost on you guys.
Cole: Try speaking regular next time and less about life.
Landon: Mommy, get me some more milk.
Me: Uh, manners? Do I look like your personal maid?
Bella: Mommy, you probably would look like his personal maid if you smiled when you got him his milk.
Landon: Do we have "doctor" today?
Me: The doctor? No, you're not doing to the doctor today.
Landon: NOOOO, doctor! Do we have doctor today?
Me: NO, you're not going to the doctor.
Landon (becoming even more frustrated): No, not doctor. DOCTOR!! Do we have DOCTOR today?
Me: Landon, I'm sorry. I don't understand what you're saying.
Landon: Garrett, tell Mommy what I'm saying.
Garrett: Oh, he wants to know if we have soccer today.
Me: Geez, you could've saved everyone a bunch of frustration if you had translated a little sooner!
Me: Bella, who's your best friend?
Bella: Why do you always have to ask me that? You are my best friend. You know that. But I also have other best friends, too.
Me: Why can't I be your only best friend?
Bella: Mommy, don't be selfish. You have to share me with the world.
