Conversations with Kenzie

McKenzie: Kaia sleepin', Kaia sleepin'.
Me: Yes, honey, Kaia is sleeping.
McKenzie: Mommy sleepy, Mommy sleepy.
Me: Yup, Mommy is tired.
McKenzie: Kenzie awake!
McKenzie (offering a bite of her waffle): Mommy want it?
Me: No thank you.
McKenzie: No welcome Mommy.
Me: Today is Father's Day. Let's draw a picture for Daddy that shows all the reasons why we love him, because today is the day to tell Daddy how much we love him.
McKenzie (nodding): Yeah. I love you too, Mommy.
Me: Oh, thank you honey.
McKenzie: I love you too, Kaia.
McKenzie (pointing): Butterfly!  Butterfly!
Mindy: Yes, that's a moth...laying flat on the plastic.
Mindy (to me): It's dead.
McKenzie (matter-of-factly): Takin' a nap. Takin' a nap.
