Bathtub Conversations: What Would've Been An Uncomfortable Birth

As Drew was bathing the girls last night,
Emmy asked him why she was 4 and Rosa was only 2.
Drew explained that
"Rosa came out of Mommy's belly 2 years after you did".
As Emmy mulled that over, Rosa contributed:
"And I didn't have any shoes on in there".

Thank Goodness.

Why Our Neighbors Might Think We Are Crazy

I mean, if I'm being totally honest, there are a multitude of other reasons,
this is probably the most benign, but still...
Sometimes we like to take a little Saturday morning stroll in the rain.
Complete with stuffed animals and
kids who dressed themselves, because I mean...awesome.

(that's my shirt that I was going to give away, but Emmy has since claimed)

(that's also my shirt, but from when I was 6ish)

Look at that face.  Crazy is good.

What Happens When I Stay On The Phone Too Long

You can see Emmy was wise enough to vacate the scene
when I caught them.
The other one... just relished the spotlight.

Couldn't Have Said It Better Myself

Yesterday I attended a Mother's Day Tea Party!
Hosted by Emmy's preschool class.
It was so fantastically awesome it made me sweaty with giddiness.
And by sweaty, I mean, afraid to raise my arms during a dance we all did later.
Didn't care to know that?  Don't be a princess.
Each Mommy was invited into the classroom individually when their
child came out, handed them a card and escorted them inside. 
Just tear up a little bit? 
The very best part, cause it was all soooo good,
 was the game of "Mommy Trivia".
Each child was "interviewed" previously and asked some questions
about their Mommy. 
Then the teacher read each interview and we had to guess
which description was ours.
My cheeks hurt from laughing by the end of this game.
Here's Emmy's interview: I've included a bit of explanation as needed.

My Mother is funny when she:  cat rolls my face instead of my shirt.
(Leaving for school, Emmy in a black shirt, having played with Mr. Puddy.  I got distracted while lint rolling her shirt.)

My Mother is  16  years old.
(No explanation needed.  Clearly I just look that young.)

My Mother is a great cook!  She likes to make:  chocolate chip muffins.

My Mother always says:  when you do something wrong you go to time out.
(Let's just put this in perspective, about 90% of the other kids answered with I love you.  Yeah, I'd be judging me too, but we just implemented a new time out chart due to some questionable behavior.)

My Mother is as pretty as a:  cow.
(Again, about 90% of the other Mommy's were as pretty as a flower, butterfly etc...)

Just the best time ever!  And I hugged my little calf with pride.

"What do you do with a one legged bird?"

"Shoot it."

This is what I got when I asked Emmy what she learned at school today.
I am clearly underpaying the school for this kind of curriculum. 

Not to be outdone in the gem department, Rosa delivered this bit of information
on the way to school today:

R:  Emzhhh, look at my paper cut!
E:  Ooooh, where'd ya get it?
R: the paper cut store.

Thank you, they'll be here all night.
