Joshua: Have you ever heard of this thing, like where you can make up your own holiday and then celebrate it?
Me: No, I haven’t.
Joshua: Well, I was thinking that I would choose a “Caring for your Siblings Day” and celebrate it on February 18th ALLLL day long.
Kaylee: NO! NO! I have a better idea!!!! Let’s have a “Sister’s Day.” Like Mother’s Day, but for sisters.
Joshua: I think “Caring for your Siblings” is a better holiday.
Kaylee: NO! Sisters!!!!!
….and I guess that’s why there is no national “Sibling Day”. Because siblings just can’t agree.
Kaylee: When I grow up, I want to have a pet parrot.
Grace: Me too!
Me: What tricks would you teach your parrot?
Kaylee: To play dead!
Joshua: (in disgust) Parrots can’t play dead.
Kaylee: Yes they can. They put their feet up in the air. I’ve seen one before!
Kaylee: Boys think that babies come out of a magic portal.
Joshua: No I don’t! I think they come out of your hinder. (maybe he’s been spending time with Jen Mura, as “hinder” is her favorite word.)
Grace, looking at my engagement ring: I like your wring, mommy.
Me: Thanks! Daddy gave it to me.
Grace, in awe: In real life?
Me: Yup! In real life.
