One of the Reasons I Enjoy Being a Parent

As a parent, you don't just hear yourself saying completely ridiculous things like, "You may not take your drill to church." and "The dog does not want to wear a tutu." but you also have someone handy who is always ready to swing a hilarious zinger at you out of the blue.

Gloria: Nobody is stupid enough to do the things the Captain Jack Sparrow does.
Levi: Yeah.  Captain Jack is crazy. . . and AWESOME!

Me: I'll be up late waiting for Daddy to get home from New Jersey tonight.
Lexi:  Right.  "Oooh. . . I'm Mommy and I'm staying up until Daddy gets home tonight. . . I'm going to knit and watch detective shows. . . yawn.. . just a few more. .  zzzzzzzzzzz."
You have to admit the kid has quite a point here. I'm only up this late tonight because she put off two essays for school until tonight and she's on computer watch for underaged Facebook attempts.

Gloria: I don't want to be an actress when I grow up, Mommy.  Do you know why? Do you know what they use for fake blood?  Ketchup.  Ew.  I don't want to have to be all covered in ketchup.  That's gross.

Levi: Some of my socks are yarn.  The rest are from Target.
Another example of my children displaying how well they know me.

Me: (holding my hand up for a high five) Awesome!
Lexi: Mom.  We don't high five anymore.  We fist bump nowadays.  And don't say awesome.  Say, 'That's so Saturday.'"

My kids are pretty Saturday.
