Um, No.

Molly: Mommy, can I play outside?

Me: No.

Molly: *starting to whine* But whyyyy? You're sitting right here and can see out the window.

Me: *pulling up the Weather app* Look at this.

Weather App: *displays current temperature of 91 degrees*

Me: You really wanna go out there?

Molly: Um, no.

Lots of Things

Molly and Charlotte: *showing me their yoga poses*

Me: Awesome! You guys are really good at tree pose.

Charlotte: I'm good at lots of things.

Me:  Oh yeah?

Charlotte: Uh-huh. I'm really good at rolling off the bed and not getting hurt.

Why Do You Do This to Me?

Butch: There's some leftover pasta, if you guys want that for lunch tomorrow.

Charlotte: Chicken?

Butch:  No, there's none of that left.

Charlotte:  Ugh! Why do you do this to me?!

Charlotte:  *after finding me at one of the outdoor stations for Field Day* Momma! I thought you'd be inside.

Full On

Molly:  I teared up a little on the bus at the end of the day. I didn't full-on cry, but I was sad to leave my friends.

Didn't Even Listen

Me:  Did you kick your Daddy out of bed last night?

Charlotte:  Uh-uh.  Molly.

Me:  Oh, Molly dragged him to your room?

Charlotte:  Yup.

Me:  Then why'd you come in here?  Bad dreams?

Charlotte:  No, good dreams.  I came in here to tell you about them.

Me:  You did?

Charlotte:  But you were asleep.  You didn't even listen.
