Charlotte: “Mommy, Calvin is going to be DARNIT mad when you buckle him into his car seat.”

Charlotte, looking worried and holding out a small hourglass: “Mom, we need to throw this away.” Me: “Okay. It’s broken?” Char: “Yes. I don’t know what’s spilling out of it. But it’s not sugar.”

Driving up Main Street after preschool, and students are out in full force due to the lovely weather. Charlotte: “I just saw a girl with a grey shirt. One of the sleeves was falling off of her.” Me: “Yeah, do you like that style?” Charlotte: “No. I could see part of her boobies.”

To the preschool girl this morning who was walking toward us and was so caught up in Calvin’s cuteness that she stumbled on a curb and fell flat out, please don’t be too embarrassed. You’re just the first of many girls to do so, I’m sure.

I just showed the trailer for “Mirror Mirror” (a live-action version of Snow White) to the girls because I want to take them to see it in the theater when it comes out (each one has only seen 2 or 3 movies in the theater EVER). I turned to Ev and Char and said, “Who wants to go with me to see this movie?” Ev: “Where?” Me: “At the movie theater!” Char, putting her hand in the air: “MEE!” Evelyn: “Not me. I don’t think it would be worth it. Let’s wait till it’s out on DVD.”

For breakfast, I made fresh, from scratch cinnamon rolls with vanilla icing, eggs, grapes, and orange juice. As she’s putting the last bite of warm cinnamon roll in her mouth, Charlotte: “Ohhhh! You forgot to give us our GUMMY-vites!!!”

This morning, I was awakened by Charlotte’s piping little voice: “GOOD NEWS! I found the vacuum cleaner attachment! It was under Calvin’s crib.”

If you are sick and my children send you a get well card without my knowledge, I apologize in advance. On the heels of Charlotte’s gravestones yesterday, Evelyn is making a card (for a different person). Poised holding scissors over the paper: “I’m going to cut a out a broken heart.” I said no.

Evelyn, thrilled over a new package of construction paper: “OOOH! It’s Ace-id free! It important because it says so in RED!”

One of my proudest parenting moments: On Saturday night Cal was already in bed. Evelyn was taking a shower. Charlotte and I had about 15 minutes before she needed to go to bed. Me: “Do you want to empty the dishwasher together? No, wait. Let’s not do that. Let’s read together.” Char: “No, I want to empty the dishwasher with you. It will feel so good to do it now so that I don’t have to do it in the morning.”

Charlotte is making a get well card for her friend. It reads, “I hope you get well soon. Love, Charlotte.” She explains the image that goes with the message, “These things that look like gravestones aren’t ACTUALLY gravestones. They’re just rocks. See, if they were gravestones they would have writing on them.”
