things they say

Me:  Look.  Dad wants you out of this room so he can watch this bad man movie.
*pauses movie on the jail cell scene*
Caroline: WAIT. WHY are you watching this?! This is NOT GOOD. Those guys are IN JAIL. YOU DO NOT NEED TO SEE THAT DADDY.


As I’m bathing Josephine in Caroline’s tub…singing sweet songs like Patty Cake and Itsy Bitsy Spider
Caroline comes in without pants and singing Spice Girls ‘Sooooooo….tell me whatchoo want whatchoo really really want’


Caroline (while I’m helping her to wrap the gifts she chose for her sisters):
Thank you so much for helping me with this, Mommy. What would I do without you? Annnnndddd…now I know what I’m NOT going to be when I grow up and that is a professional wrapper.


Me: So Caroline. How’s life treating you today?
Her: It’s treating me pretty good. It’d be treating me a lot better though if someone like you would buy me a chinchilla.


Caroline: Mommy? If you call my name and I don’t answer it’s because I’m in my room. With the door closed. Listening to music on this iPod with my headphones. I don’t really want to do it, but I think that’s what I’m supposed to do now that I’m this age.


Caroline: I can see out of this eye, but not this eye.
Me: Cover one. Can you see?
Her: Yes
Me: Cover the other one. Can you see?
Her: Nope. Really blurry.
Me: Well, I guess you’re going to the eye doctor.
Allison: NOOOOOO!!! She can’t have glasses AND braces at the same time that I have glasses and braces!!
Me: Allison, um, if she can’t see then she needs glasses.
Allison: Well actually? That’d be a monocle.
