More from R.C. and T.L.
Here are the silly things Red Chief and Tiger Lily have said in June and July 2013, with Tiger Lily age 4 and Red Chief age 6.
And now we're all caught up.
Tiger Lily: "This is our cat."
Friend: "Is it a girl or a boy?"
Tiger Lily: "It's a girl."
Friend: "Does it have any babies?"
Tiger Lily: "No. We took the kitten part out."
Friend: "Why don't you want it to have any babies?"
Tiger Lily: "Because it would hurt. A lot."
Red Chief: "I wish I was back in school, so I wouldn't have to do as much work."
Tiger Lily: "According to my research, humans who eat bread, it goes right into your stomach. Down your esophagus."
Red Chief: "How does fat keep you warm?"
Me: "Why don't we do a little experiment tomorrow to show you how it works?"
Red Chief: "Okay . . . but don't cut me open."
Tiger Lily: "Red Chief and I are pretending to go to Attle."
Red Chief: "It's Seattle."
Tiger Lily: "Seattle. Come on, Red Chief, let's go and see Attle."
Tiger Lily: "Mom, why are my preschool teachers nicer than you and Daddy?"
Me: "Your preschool teachers are nicer than us?"
Tiger Lily: "No. They're much, MUCH nicer!"
