Reese and Claire were playing make-believe. They were on "an adventure, looking for 'moms'". I was in cleaning the bathroom when they passed by.
Claire: "Look! There's one! (a "mom")."
Reese, disappointed: "No. That's just the cleaning lady."
Definitely what it feels like sometimes!!!

Claire chowing down on a Spicy Italian sandwich at Subway: "I like meat [chomp, chomp, chomp].....except Bear meat."

Reese, after preschool: "Today, during snack time, we said 's' words." (Maybe you had to be there :)

I was reading a Book of Mormon story one night with the girls and I had just explained how having "faith" can mean believing in something even though we can't see it. Reese: "Well, I have faith in monsters!"

I was wiping Claire's face after she had been outside playing and eating brownies....
Claire: "Being a kid isn't easy."

Reese was sitting rather impatiently off to the side waiting for me to finish something up so I could help her....
Reese: "Being patient makes me bored."

At the hospital after having Everett:
Discharge Nurse filling out paper work: "Who delivered the baby?"
Me, totally confused as to why she was asking me this question: "I...I did."
Nurse: "No, which doctor?"
Me: "Oh...."

Claire: "I'm so lucky to have a baby brother."
Tom: "Did Heavenly Father send Baby Everett to us?"
Claire, laughing in a don't be silly way: "No, Dad! We got him from the hostible (hospital)!"

Claire dragged her time out chair over to the kitchen counter and started digging her little fingers into the pan of brownies that I had made earlier.
Me: Claaaaire?!
Claire, knowing she was caught, immediately turned around with both palms facing up: "Nuffing."

Reese was sitting on my lap feeling the baby kick... Reese: "What color is the baby gonna be?"
Me: "Umm, white."
Reese, frustrated: "Why is he going to be white?!"
Me: "Ummm...because Daddy and I are white."
Reese, totally disappointed and annoyed: "No! I want him to be black!!"
Me: "If this baby is black I'm gonna have some explaining to do."

Reese and Tom just finished racing to the car.
Reese: "Daddy, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose......AND I won!"

Reese: "When I turn 5 do I get to go to school ANNNND wipe my own poo?!"
