overheard lately around our house

“Mommy, I’m gonna marry (insert boy from school’s here)!”

A week later: “Mommy, now I’m gonna marry (insert a different boy from school’s name here)!”

Then Dan’s head exploded.

Via text with Dan:

Me: Oh crap, I just realized I forgot to get milk this morning after I dropped the girls at school. Sorry. I was in a hurry to get home and GSD.

Dan: Get sitting down?


From Audrey:

“Ticka Ticka!” (tickle tickle)
“ca” (cup)
(with hands open wide, looking down at something she dropped) “uh!” (uhoh)
“ah-siiiii” (outside)
lots of random SHREIKING! and YELLING at us because we told her no.

After I told Maggie that no, in fact we won’t be ordering from the pizza place because Mommy made dinner already so you won’t be having any fried zucchini, sorry.

(crying) (really hard) “Mommy, that’s NOT VERY NICE! You’re MEAN not letting me have the FOOD I WANT!”

    Jack has been talking about getting married lately. Fortunately (I think), he wants to marry me. I’m cool with that! And Xander learned to say uh-oh last week. Sometimes he puts an extra “uh” into it so it comes out “uh uh oh” I love babies learning to talk!

    I feel your daughter’s pain regarding that fried zucchini. So often I am thwarted!

    Re: Dan… that sounds like something my dear husband would say.

    And Maggie has a point. You are SO MEAN and NOT FAIR and OH MY GOD IS SHE LIKE SIXTEEN OR SOMETHING?! That girl. :)

    Aww, I love that beginning talking stage that Audrey is in. So cute!

    And yeah, we’ve had the YOU’RE SO MEAN! conversation sooooo many times lately. No fun. Funny, but no fun.
