Faster than a tormado

We had an extra four year old in the house today.  I thought it would distract me from the fantastic explosion of toys if I took notes on some of the conversations I overheard.


I have the hardest job in my house.  I fold napkins.

Well, my job is harder.  I catch all the lizards outside my house.

I fold more napkins. 

I catch a million lizards.

We’re like twins cause we have the same thing to eat!

I can run faster than a horse.

I can run faster than a rocketship

I can run faster than a “tormado”

I can run faster than God.

Mom, who can run the fastest?

My cousin is going to marry Justin Bieber

Who is that?

I think he’s a boy at her school.

That is NOT what a kangaroo sounds like when it gives birth.  It says “Boing Boing Boing.”

My [stuffed] puppy tore a little when her baby was born. [did I mention this was a midwife’s 4 year old?]

This will be your dog “collard” to wear.

We also had marshmallow roasting and sprinkler running.  And the girls built elaborate play scenes.

  2. So glad you captured these snippets… delightful!

  3. i am delighted to see in this little window to their day… your day. it looks like it was delightful (and i’m sure horribly messy!). i owe you millions of favors, mama, but instead i think i should take care of the speeding ticket. seems only fitting for watching a tormado. 😉

  4. You don’t owe me a thing! Clem taught Norah some fantastic natural consequences to keep her bossiness in check.

  5. Aw, I miss both those girls. 🙂 And…sprinklers! In November! Woe to be back in Canada. 😉
