I like to put convos that Jace and I have had on facebook, let me look on my timeline:
"Jace has advice this morning: Don't throw a taco at an old lady's car or else she will hit you with her purse."
"Me: Jace lets cuddle...
Jace: I forgot to tell you that I cancelled cuddles tonight.
Jace: I'm playing putt-putt tomorrow and need to save my energy."
"Jace was mad at me this morning...
Jace: Mom, next time when I'm an adult and you're the kid, I'm not taking you anywhere fun."
Just a couple from my timeline
Deniz, those are great.
Ben often says to me "Mommy, wouldn't it be funny if there was a car on the roof?" He asks me that all.the.time. I don't know why. I think maybe it's a leftover Christmas thing - like because Santa parks his sleigh on the roof.
Kylie ran in her room with the cat and her mom went in there and asked "where is Nico?" her response?....I'm cooking him!

Ben always says "Mommy, I'm boring" when he means he's bored. And when something on TV makes DH or I change the channel right away because it's not suitable for the kids Ben says "THAT'S inappropriate."
Here are a couple for DH's blog of funny things. Kaiya is called Princess Ironman on the blog.
Princess Iron Man is looking intently at the back obus form pillow on mu wheel chair
P.I.: "This looks like a drip or a hootenanny"
Me: "What's a hootenanny?"
Rolls her eyes and sighs
P.I.: " Its a big dance"
Me: "?!?!" , "It looks like a hootenanny??"
Mom intervenes: "P.I. do you just like saying hootenanny?"
Dad - Help Princess Ironman Help! The cat is attacking mePrincess Ironman (looking perplexed) - But that's ok.
Princess Ironman - Mummy, why is my tongue scratchy? Mummy - What? PI - It has bumps. M - Oh, those are taste buds. They let you taste things. PI - I don't want a bumpy tongue. Take them off. M - But you need them if you are going to be able to taste. PI - But they are spicy! M - What? PI - When I eat salt and pepper they are spicy! I don't like spicy! (She picks up her toothbrush and tries to scrub them off) M - Yes, if you eat spicy things you taste spice. But if you eat sweet things like cupcake your tastebuds taste sweet. PI - Oh. M - You need your taste buds. Please don't try to scrub them off. PI - Ok Mummy.
I can't believe I had to tell her not to scrub her tastebuds off!
And a bit of advice from the 4 ear old health expert
Princess IM: Daddy takes good care of me and we have fun. I take good care of Daddy too cause his leg is owie... To get better, Daddy's leg needs to shine.
Mummy: His leg needs to shine?
Princess IM: Yep. It needs pixie dust.
From my facebook a few months ago:
Yesterday morning Kaiya climbed into bed with me, woke me up, gave me about 10 seconds and....
Mummy, can I change my skin? (Holding out her arm)
What? You want to change your skin?
Yes, I want it to be brown.
So we had a chat about pigment and how much is in her skin. I told her that she would be browner in the summer from a tan but she will never be as brown as Rahel (her Ethiopian doll). She was very disappointed. Then....
Mummy, can we get a baby?
What? No, we can't get a baby. You need a mummy and a daddy for a baby and daddy can't have anymore.
Why do you want a baby?
So I can teach it to do tricks!
She could have at least let me wake up first....
Later that day I found her using permanent black marker to colour herself. So yes you can change you skin...with a sharpie. Sigh. She is still annoyed that she is of norther European descent.
We now have a little rough and tumble 2 year old boy living upstairs. She no longer wants a baby.
ok, one more..
After her bath, Kaiya put a washcloth on her head and put her hands on her hips, stood up tall and said proudly "This is my Action Hair." Her towel became an Action Dress and the bathroom was the Action Room. I don't know what she was pretending, but it seemed pretty cool!
Rob and Kaiya were playing playdough.
Kaiya: look I made a plate of green!
Rob: is it soilent green?
5 minutes later
Kaiya.: I made soilent pasta, soilent pizza and soilent pancakes...
Kaiya made up a story tonight. Here is an excerpt:
And the bunny asked the sheep, "can you come with me?". And the sheep said "no, I can't. I'm watering the garden with my tongue."
Recently we were walking around the downtown area of our city. There's a new restaurant coming called "Puebla". Matthew, our 11 yr old, said "Oh look...Pube-la is coming soon"!
