Wes to Em, “Can I hold your hand forever?” Em to Wes, “Well, I will have to go to school every now and then.” But in between school sessions, you bet.
Emma to me, on the subject of her amor, Luis, “He is in love with me, and he thinks I am in love with him.” Me to Emma, “You’re not?” Emma to me, “No, but I let him think I am.” That’s either very sweet or very cruel. I’m not sure which. Hmm.
Ana, singing a song she made up, “I love you so much… but sometimes, I don’t really like you.” That’s deep, y’all.
Ana to Emma, right after they woke up, “I wish I was an only child.” Wow. The day could only get better from there, right?
I was trying to help Emmy learn the books of the Old Testament for AWANA. Was going to make it super easy by teaching her a song about it. Two seconds into my singing, she stopped me. “That does NOT help.” It’s a good thing I’m not easily offended.
Em to me, at the end of a one mile run, “I’m all blustered!” I’m not sure what that means, but it sounds exhausting.
Ana to me, “She’s one hundred percent bi-engels, but I’m only about thirty percent bi-engels.” Bi-engels, bilingual… I can see where she got this.
Em to me, on the subject of her belted jeans, “I couldn’t get out of these pants today when I needed to go to the restroom!” Me to Em, “What did you do? Hold it all day?” Em to me, doing a shaking dance, “No, I just did this, over and over again until my pants fell off!” I sincerely hope she was IN the restroom when she did this. (And why didn’t she just undo the belt? Too easy, y’all. Way too easy.)
Ana to Wes, when he was showing her where he’d gotten scratched on the stomach during a hard stop on a bike ride, “Papi, I do not need to see your private parts.” Wes to Ana, “This is my stomach.” Ana to Wes, “Papi, NO ONE out here needs to see your private parts!” Ana regards all exposed skin as scandalous. Probably because she lives with a girl who dances out of her pants on a regular basis. (See the above funny.)
Hope you have a great weekend, friends!
