Mama: "L., what has gotten into you today? You are not behaving!"
L.(thinks about it, then says): "Well, my tummy hurts so that's why I'm being naughty."
Okay, babies cannot do that.
Later, we managed to find a day when everyone could make it to the party, and so we made even MORE cupcakes. A. ordered an entirely pink party, so we had pink balloons, candies, pink lemonade, pink candles and streamers and so on...
And again, there were plenty of volunteers when it came to unwrapping gifts. We played games, had prizes, pizza, and L. made up this poster so we could do pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey. And the pictures of tails very thoughtfully included a picture of a pin.

We set the table all pretty, dressed up in red dresses, exchanged valentines (L. made about 3 for each of us), had a heart-themed treasure hunt, and enjoyed heart-shaped pancakes with strawberries.
BR was not impressed with the hoopla and opted for a bowl of cheerios instead.

I was in the livingroom, folding some laundry tonight when I overheard A. muttering to herself in her room, long after she should have been asleep: "I think my lazy daddy is taking a shower."

Mommy (driving and distracted): "Uh, probably not. That doesn't happen very often."
L.: "Well, does it happen sometimes in Australia?"

Me: (not even trying not to laugh) "No!"
L.: "But does that happen to some people? Their heads just fall off?"
She explained later that Daddy told her once that someone had 'broken his nose.' (And evidently she thought this happened because their head fell off...?!)

After I explained about home plumbing and what the sewage pipes on a neighboring truck were used for:
"Mommy! That's a yucky thing to say!"
"Mommy! Don't squish Jesus in my heart!"
