Me: Let's get going upstairs. I need you to go to bed so I can take a break. You know, when you girls are sleeping, I'm not a mommy anymore.
Me: Yeah. I don't have to be a mommy anymore when you are sleeping.
Dustin (against his better judgement): That's right. When you are sleeping she's not a mommy anymore. After that she's just a wife.
Kenzie: Massachusetts kinda sounds like Cheez-Its. It's like Massacheezits.
Dustin: Kaia!After a few minutes sitting on the stairs (pretending) to contemplate her wrong-doing...
Me: Kaia! No!
Dustin: Kaia! Do NOT sit on the chicken! Get off the chicken!!
Me: KAIA! GET OFF THE CHICKEN!
Dustin (running to her): No! No! We do NOT sit on the chickens!
Me: Kaia, it is not nice to sit on the chickens. You could hurt them. We don't want to hurt the chickens.
Kaia (patting my arm sympathetically): Okay, Mommy. Okay.
Ooo boy that girl likes to test us.
