On the way to school:
Emma: MOMMA! We need to cwean out da woks under our pway house because it’s wike a witter box now!
Emma: Dere is cat poop, bird poop… all kinds of poop under dere.
Me: GROSS! We need to get Daddy to get all those rocks out and put some new ones in there.
Aubrey: We never play in there anyway.
Me: Well, Sadie and Annie do!
Aubrey: Yeah, I guess so. They don’t need to play in the cat (in unison with Emma) poop and bird poop…
Aubrey & Emma: JINX BUY ME A COKE!
They were giggling hysterically.
A&E: JINX BUY ME A COKE! JINX BUY ME A COKE!
They matched each other syllable for syllable.
Aubrey: Jinx, buy me a good day at school… (Y’all remember that my kids have NO idea what jinx actually means?)
Emma batted her eyelashes and leaned her head against Aubrey’s shoulder, “Jinx buy ME a great big sister!”
Aubrey: Awwwww! Sisters are better than cats.
Bonus story. Because I love you. And I’ve missed you.
Last night Emma said to Zebulicious, “Daddy, I meed to tell you a secwet.” (When she stops rolling her ‘l’s’ and ‘r’s’ I. Will. Cry.)
He leaned over and she leaned towards his ear. As she was whispering in his left ear, her tiny little hand snuck around to his right ear and she stuck her finger in his ear. He jumped.
“Emma! What the heck are you doing?”
“Cause I don’t want the secwets to sneak out!!”
