Crash-ded Like Kermit

Me to Ana, “You need to be honest with me.” Ana to me, “That’s my name! Annn-est!” Oh, Ana…

Emma to me, “Ana was so nice to me. She help-ded me not get crash-ded by a car in the parking lot. Just like Kermit.” Kermit was indeed crash-ded by a car in The Muppets Take Manhattan. Not sure how Ana was the one being credited with keeping Em from a Kermit-like fate, when I was the one holding onto her, but anyway…

Ana, regarding her fifty yard dash race in comparison to our 13.1 mile race, “Well, fifty is more than thirteen. My race is LONGER than yours!” I will accept the challenge on the “longer” race and will do the fifty yard dash in lieu of the half marathon next time…

Em to us, “I will see BeeCees in heaven.” Wes to Em, “Emma, only people who trust in Jesus go to heaven.” Em to Wes, “Oh, BeeCees trusted in Jesus.” And there you have it — Emma won our dead dog to the Lord. It’s reason to rejoice…

Me to the girls at 5:34pm, “If you two can’t get along, we’ll just end this day and go to bed right this minute.” Ana to me, “Well, I am tired, you know.” I have no words…

Emma to me, regarding her playground activities, “We were shootin’ at the monster. With guns! Bang, bang, bang! Then, he was dead.” Wow, public school is rough, y’all. Shootin’ up monsters on the playground!

Ana to me, “I will always remember our first kiss.” I asked her when this kiss occurred, and she told me, “I was just born, and you kissed me on the cheek. I remember that.” See the picture at the beginning of this post. Yes, Ana claims that she remembers that exact moment, as well as moments from the womb, where she enjoyed kicking me…

Me to Emma, “Can we be buddies forever?” Emma to me, “No, not forever.” Me to Emma, “Why not?” Emma to me, “Because I will die one day!” Say what you want about Emma and her inclination towards living in a fantasy world, but the girl understands her own mortality…
