This is a worksheet that Ada brought home from school…

What’s bugging you at school?
What really bugs me at school is that we have to stay at school for one hundred eighty days and we are only at the one hundred forty-sixth day!

What’s bugging you at home?
The thing that bugs me every day at home I have to deal with the two littler kids who argues about who plays with me! (We have two neighbors who don’t really get along)

Ada: I don’t really like hero shows.  Like Superman.  I wouldn’t call Superman.  I just have my parents to help me.
Chad: Well what if I was Superman?  Would you call me?
Ada: Hmmmm….I’ll have to think about that one.
I have to say, that’s pretty high praise that she would call us instead of Superman.  That’s a win.[subscribe2]Read the rest

Chad made a fart sound with his mouth…
Chad: Did you hear mom?  Oh my goodness!
Ada: Nuh-uh, mom would NEVER fart like that.  But I would.  I have!
There’s no parenting in a situation like that, just lots of laughing.

Chad found a hidden stash of popcorn in Grace’s room, then later…
Grace: I need a drink of water.  There’s something stuck in my throat.
Chad: Like popcorn?
Grace: Probably.

Ada: I wish I was Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony.
Chad: So you would eat hay?
Ada: No.  Dad….
Chad: Would you poop in the street?
Ada: DAD!  No!  Ugh… Dang it.

Me: Eli, do you think you can find something to do that won’t get you in trouble? (after a long talk about terrorizing his sisters)
Eli: I don’t know….probably not.

I’ve been alone with Ada this week…

Ada: I wish Grace and I were twins.  Then we would have the same birthday, the same color eyes, dress the same, and wear the same headdresses.
Me: What’s a headdress? (curious if she actually knew)
Ada: It’s a dress.
Me: Oh.
Ada: Wait, wait, wait.  It’s what you wear in your hair.

After shopping at Target for her 7 1/2 birthday party since I can’t get my act together for a Christmas-time party
Ada: I think I should try this out.
Me: The birthday sash?… Read the rest

Chad and the kids were watching The Muppet Movie, and Miss Piggy was singing “Never Before”
Grace: She needs to work on that ending.

Ada: What are you watching?
Me: Jimmy Fallon.  The grown-ups just talk.
Ada: That’s boring.

Ada: I don’t want to be selfish, I WAS already baptized.

Ada: I saw an angel-winged monkey dressed like a janitor!  You do not see that every day.
(on the cover of Oz: The Great and Powerful)

Ada: What’s that Chinese chicken called again?
Me: Mongolian beef?
Ada: Yeah!  Can you make that tomorrow night?

Reading the nutrition label on her cereal the morning after vomiting…
Ada: I feel like I haven’t been eating enough fiber.  Maybe that’s why I got sick.

Ada: I didn’t know women could ride motorcycles, especially grandmas!  But I just saw…a old lady…riding a motorcycle.

Grace: Eli, gross!
Eli: What?  I ate a donut fast today.  And when I eat fast I get burpy.

Eli: I need to let out some urine.
And with that I called Chad to meet me at the second grocery store on my list of errands to take the boy home.

Eli: Eww, what’s that smell?
Grace: It smells like gas.  Not fart gas, but car gas.

Chad: Keep your boogers in your nose.

Chad and the kids were laughing and having a great time as he was teaching them the “proper way” to assemble a dog pile on our bed.  Until…
Chad: There is no farting in a dog pile!
