Toddler Antics...

Here is a sampling of some of the conversations that took place in our home today:

Overheard from the den..
"Stop pulling my hair!" (Jackson, age 2 and a half)
Emory (19 mths.) with two fistfuls of hair, giggling, is sitting behind Jackson on the couch. "Yehaw!" (any guesses on what she was pretending Jackson was?)

Getting the kids out of the tub for lunch (don't ask):
Me, "Em, let's go get lunch and a vitamin!"
Emory, "No!"
Me, "We're having corn on the cob. Don't you want to eat corn like a big girl?"
Emory, "Uh huh, like daddy!" (apparently daddy fits into the category of big girls Emory would most like to imitate)

Emory refused her afternoon nap today and daddy had his first Ultimate Frisbee game of the summer season so he didn't get home until late and I was mentally fried when he arrived:
Eric, "Hi Babe. I'm going to go get cleaned up and then feed the dogs."
Me, "The dogs are here?
Eric, "No, wait. Where are they? They're not here."
Me, "The dogs aren't here?"
Eric, "The dogs aren't here."
Me, "The dogs are here?"
Eric, "The dogs aren't here."
Me, "Where are the dogs? Are they here?"
Eric, "They are not here. They're at the clinic."
Me, "So, they're not here."
Eric, "The dogs are not here.
Glad we got that one settled.

Yikes. It sounds like it was a good week for Helen to be at home with her daddy! Hope you are surviving!
