boys are weird

Nate says, "Mom, we can't say 'poop' because it is a bad word."
"That's right." I say.
"And you know what else we can't say? We can't add a 'p' to the end of Pooh, because that is a bad word!"

I enter the living-room late one evening, to find my oldest daughter lying on her back on the couch, her feet in the air, straws between her toes, her dress pooled around her waist, exposing her princessy undies to whatever parts of the neighbourhood that happened to be looking up through our balcony door. There were many things wrong with this picture, so I chose the most important, "Kaytie, put your legs down, the neighbours don't want to see your underwear."
Daniel, who was looking at a book, leaped to his feet and turned his back to me. "Mom! Do you want to see MY underwear?" And he pulled down his shorts obligingly.

Nate says, to Kaytie, "Most sheep live on Mars. Some live on Earth, but only the blue ones."

Ok, that was hilarious. They live in their own little worlds, don't they? God bless them. :)
