I Swear I Showered

Setting the stage: This conversation occurred as I entered Kate’s room this morning. They were the first words out of her mouth after I woke her up.

KATE: We aren’t going anywhere?
ME: Yes we are. You get to go and play with the kids today.
KATE: I don’t want to. I want to stay home with you.
ME: I’m not staying home. I’ve got to go to stinking work.
KATE: I’ll help you take a shower mommy.
ME: What??? I already took my shower.
KATE: But you can’t go to work stinky!

Perhaps it's dyslexic Wednesday (get it? someone?). I shouldn't give her that hard of a time. My brain doesn't even function that well until at least after my second cup of coffee.

Hear you on the second cup of coffee thing.

I was so tired at work last night I drank two cups at 9pm....(sooo stupid.)....and couldn't shut my eyes until 4am....(really stupid)

I'm just waiting for Chickie to be old enough to say things like, "Your breath stinks, Mommy." I know it's coming. I mean, she already comments on the stinkiness of "toots." Not that I EVER do that, mind you.

Too funny! I only work in the office two days a week and my girl HATES those two days, she gets so sad :(

She's too much of a smarty for her own good. You just need to train her to save it until mommy's awake in the morning.

Kids say the darndest things!
As a primary school teacher, I hear it all. One example:

At a bully presentation our school held the other day, the kids were asked if they knew what a bully was. One kid pipes up so matter-of-factly with:
"A bully is someone who is mean and kicks you in the privacy."

Hilarity is what gets me through the day. :)
