After baths tonight, Aubrey, my seven-year-old, thought it would be a good idea to shake her head back and forth a la wet dog. She got down on all fours… in her skivvies to increase the effect.
Her three-year-old sister found this hysterically funny and while Sadie laughed Aubrey stopped to giggle with her. She stayed frozen for a moment then said to Sadie, “Hey! Push my on button!”
I have no idea what previously conceived notions Sadie had about an “On Button,” but without skipping a beat, she reached up, put her hand on Aubrey’s backside and, rather rudely, accosted her. Aubrey and I cackled with laughter.
Me: WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU DOING?!
SADIE: I jest gived hur a good game!
For the love.
Later when I was tucking Aubrey into bed, I whispered, “I can’t believe you are going to be in second grade next year.”
Aubrey said, totally serious, ” I know. I’m blossoming.”
My people are random. RANDOM, I tell you. What’s the most random thing that’s been said at your house lately?
Update: I gave Emma (5yo) my iPhone to listen to a lullaby playlist while she went to sleep. I just went to check on her and saw the glow of the iphone illuminating her face as she studied the screen.
Me: Honey, you can’t play with it just listen–
Emma: I didn’t bite it.
Emma: I didn’t bite it. I didn’t bite your phone.
Me: Um. Okay?
I laughed because obviously, she just bit my phone. Which raises two important points:
1) I’m not sure she’s mine because I am and have always been, an excellent liar.
2) This is why I have an iPhone case that was practically made by Rubbermaid.
Obviously I snickered.
Emma laughed too, then said, “I’m just thinking about boys underwear. That’s why I’m laughing.”
What the HAIL, ya’ll?
