On the way to school on Monday:
Bracken: I'm not sure what I should be when I grow up, so could you decide for me?
Abbie: I'm going to be a butterfly when I grow up.
Bracken (exasperated): Abbie! You CANNOT be a butterfly when you grow up, you are a human.
Abbie: Yes I can. I will just go to the butterfly store and buy my wings.
After school on Monday:
Me: Bracken do other kids in your class wear Crocs?
Bracken: Yeah. A girl does, hers have flowers on them.
Me: What shoes do the other kids wear? Sneakers?
Me: Do you want to wear your sneakers?
Bracken: Sure. The jumping moose ones?
Me: What jumping moose ones?
Bracken: The brown and white shoes with a jumping moose on them.
Me: Those are not moose, they are Puma's. A puma is like a cheetah or a leopard.
Bracken: I don't think so mom, they have antlers.
[I have no idea what he is talking about, but I have included a picture of his shoes in case any of you are able to see antlers on his puma's]
On the way home from school on Tuesday:Abbie: Mom can you change this music to a love song?
Me: A love song?
Me: Ok. (I changed the song on the CD to a slower song)
Abbie: No mommy not this one! The one that makes you and Daddy be in love!!
Bracken: I don't want to listen to that one, it makes me feel embarrassed.
[who knew that Aerosmith could elicit such emotion from 3 and 4 year olds?]
Not in the car, but hilarious during dinner last night:
Bracken: What is this stuff you are making me eat?
Bracken: What does it taste like?
Me: Just eat it and see.
Bracken: Why do I have to eat it?
Me: Because it is healthy for you.
Bracken: Why is it healthy?
Me: Because it has omega three fatty acids.
Bracken: I don't want fatty asses.
[a little inappropriate but completely hilarious, I don't know how I didn't see that one coming]
