This afternoon, the two little girls and I picked up the big kids from piano practice.
Bennet: What’s for dinner?
Me: It’s in the car. Can you smell it?
Silence while everyone sniffs.
Lizzy: I don’t smell anything.
Jane: Me either.
Bennet: ROTISSERIE CHICKEN!!!!
Kitty: I get the drumstick!!!
Jane: I want a drumstick, too!
Lizzy: So do I! That’s the only part I like!
Lydia: I dumdick, too!!
Me: There’s only two drumsticks, guys. You can’t all have one.
Lydia: I DUMDICK, TOO!!!
Kitty: There’s only two drumsticks, Wydia.
Lydia: NO!!! TWO, FWEE, FOUW, FIVE!!!!
More fighting over the two drumsticks.
Me: If you don’t stop fighting over them, I’ll take the drumsticks and throw them out the window.
Lydia: (singing) Da window! Da window! Fwow it out da window!
Didya ever think you would see the day when Kitty actually looked the best in a picture?
