Slyly opens Netflix Kids on my laptop and then makes a big production of looking surprised at what she sees the screen:
Julia: wonder what this is?!
Theo and Phoebe start crying during their naps while Julia and I are hanging out and I pretend not to hear for a minute or three ...
Julia: eye roll
Julia: eye roll
Julia: now mom's quiet time is more like mom's CRYING TIME.
One night when Julia claimed she couldn't sleep I told her to think about her birthday wish list until she was able to drift off. I went to bed and woke up a full hour later to her standing thisclose to my face ...
Julia: a pig
Julia: I decided I want a pet pig for my birthday
After I got an unfortunate email about someone in a different class at her school having lice ...
Grace: Julia, please come here so I can look at your hair
Julia: oh! don't worry! my teachers already checked my hair and they didn't find ANY mice.
While the kids were enjoying the fruits of my bi-monthly baking labor ...
Julia: can I please have another cookie? I accidentally ate my first one.
Overheard while Julia and Sebastian were "banging out" in the basement ...
Julia: Well, Bash.
Julia: You just need to know that girls grow babies in their tummies and boys grow poop in theirs.
Julia: can we go to the store today to buy some pears?
Grace: no, Bash is still sick, I'm sorry
Julia: well, I have a great idea
Julia: he can just frow up in his hands
Julia: ... and then put it in his pockets and no one will see
While visiting Simon at work one night ...
Julia: So, where's your friend Neil?
Simon: I think he's busy doing a delivery
Julia: oh, Dad! he's not a mailman!!!
After she caught me watching a little nap time Bachelor and surmised that there were some very sad girls because of the fact that they did not get roses ...
Julia: well ...
Grace: what is it?
Julia: do you think we should just tell them you can buy flowers like that at Costco?
