Funnies from Red Chief and Tiger Lily
I'm pulling these off Facebook to make sure I don't lose them. Some days my kids keep me in stitches!
November–December 2011 (Red Chief, age 5, and Tiger Lily, age 2)
Tiger Lily just prepared herself a snack: cheese crackers and chocolate chips drizzled with olive oil. Anyone hungry?
Tiger Lily: "Look, there's buttons in the car. Hi buttons! Mom, the buttons aren't talking to me."
Me: "We don't bite in this house."
Tiger Lily: "Oh. Me bite in the store."
Tiger Lily: "When I older, and I a boy, I go to kindergarten. When I go to school, I not miss you."
What do you do with salt? If you're Tiger Lily, you very quietly sprinkle it on the cat. Until it's all gone.
Me: "Red Chief, get your coat and backpack."
Red Chief: "Okay, Mom. I always follow your commands."
Tiger Lily: "Mommy, can you make normal porridge for breakfast?"
Me: "What kind of porridge is normal porridge?"
Tiger Lily: "The kind with no poison or cheese."
Red Chief: "The bigger my ears get, the better I can hear!"
Tiger Lily, in distress: "Mom, Mom, my pink shoes are missing!"
Me: "That's okay, why don't you wear your Elmo shoes?"
Tiger Lily: "But my dress is pink!"
Tiger Lily, crayon in hand: "Let's go get the cat, Red Chief. You can hold her and I will color her eyes."
Red Chief: "Mom, is Costco a city or a state?"
