New funnies

"You know. Swiper's not a real guy."
"Maybe Santa will bring me a tennis rocket.
"I'm sorry I tried to trick you. I was trying to sneak you."
"Maybe we could have an Olive Party...?"

The latest

Without getting too graphic, Chloe was a little 'backed up' yesterday. She started having some belly cramping and said, "Mommy. My stomach hurts. I have a cramp. I have a baby in my belly."

Words to laugh by

Upon walking into a restaurant this weekend, Chloe said to the waitress, "Hey, you got any high chairs in here?"

Last month, we went to Grandma and Poppy's for a visit. Kevin was rummaging through the kitchen cabinets and Grandma said to him, "What are you looking for, honey?" Chloe looked at her and said, "His name is KEVIN."

"Look at me when I am talking to you."

She picked up a Cooking Light magazine this afternoon and said, "Now, let's see what I'm going to have for dinner.. [Long pause]...How about pizza??"

"That's not very right."

"Let me explain something to you."

In the grocery store yesterday walking down the last aisle, she says to Kevin, "You need any beer Daddy?"

To Nana, "Do you hear the poo poo coming out?"

Chloe goes to the hospital

Chloe woke up early Tuesday morning with a high fever and vomiting (lots of vomiting.) We went to the pediatrician at 8:00 am for a check, and by the time the appt was over, we were on our way to the hospital. Chloe was admitted and given IV fluids and antibiotics, and poked in proded in every way imaginable. We stayed overnight – and after many, many tests – they still don't know why the sudden onset of symptoms. We have been following up with her doctor every day for further tests, and everything is looking better. We're just hoping whatever caused this doesn't come back anytime soon!

So I guess if we had any excuse to miss the inauguration, this was it.

I've got to do some work

I took Chloe to the mall today to buy a puzzle that a friend recommended. I was trying to distract her when I picked it out so she wouldn't see I was buying it. So I pointed her over to a few small tables with PC's set up for kids, equipped with games, etc. A bit later, after I purchased the puzzle, I said, "Okay Chloe. It's time to go." She looked at me and said, "Nah. I'm going to stay here. I've got some work to do."

Going on a trip (of sorts.)

My friend Janet has two adorable children, Mya (6) and Gavin (2). She told me a hilarious story yesterday (one of many – she is a great storyteller). She told me she was getting dressed in front of Gavin, preparing to put on her bra, when he said, "Mommy. Why are you putting your boobies in that suitcase?"


Bombs Away

I just walked by the door to our master commode and heard sounds resembling missles and bombs exploding from within. I said, "WTF is going on in there?" Low and behold, Kevin was in there, playing video games on his iPhone. The sounds were at least appropriate, given the scenario.

He is going to kill me for posting this.

Let there be sleep

Chloe woke up at FIVE THIRTY this morning. And it was not a Quiet-Peaceful-Zen wake up. It was a Screaming-At-The-Top-of -Her-Lungs wake up. I am praying, which I rarely do (unless I think myself or someone else I love could be dying) that she sleeps until at least 7am tomorrow.

Let's have a moment of slience.

Everybody poops

Tonight's bath time conversation:

"Everyone poops Mommy. Mommy poops. Daddy poops. And sharks and turtles and Dora. And my watering can. And Gavin and Mya."

I'm totally spooked

I just had the following conversation with Chloe:

Mommy, I want to go home.
We are home, honey.
No I want to go to another home.
Aw, Chloe. What's the matter with this home?
I don't like it.
Well why is that honey?
There's ghosts in this home.

Oh Susanna!

She'll make a great Milli Vanilli or Ashley Simpson one day.
