Ace: I'm going to teach Zee to be the fieriest firefighter.
Me: Do you mean "fierce" firefighter?
Ace: Yes. He is going to be the mostest fierce firefighter ever.
Me: Oh yeah? What does that look like?
Ace: It means he is going to be the best.
Me: How are you going to teach him that?
Ace: Well, I haven't started the lessons yet, but I'm going to. Maybe when he's older. Like old enough to watch Star Wars or Sponge Bob.
Me: That's really old.
Ace: Like a teenager?
Ace: Hmmmm... Well, I'll have to think about that then.
May 4, 2014, breakfast conversation #2:
Ace: Can we have a dance party today?
Zee: Dance party! Dance party! Dance party!
Me: (slightly giggling silence)
Ace: Oh, oh, oh! The neighbors can come over and we can have a freeze dance party!
Zee: Freeze dance party! Freeze dance party! Freeze dance party!
Me: (more slightly giggling silence)
Ace: Please? Please? Please?
Zee: Dance party! Dance party!
Me: (still not getting a word in)
Ace: With music?
Me: (contemplating an out)
April 30, 2014:
Ace: Zee, do you want some rocks?
Ace: If you promise to never take anything from me ever again, I'll give you all the rocks in this Easter egg.
Ace: Okay, have you decided to never take anything from me ever again?
April 28, 2014:
Ace is flexing her manipulator skills with, "pretty please with broccoli and protein on top".
April 24, 2014:
Ace, while watching me work in the yard and try to kill wasps with a toxic spray, exclaimed, "Our mommy is the best! This is GREAT television!"
April 19, 2014:
Ace just called herself "Sir Burps-A-Lot". I've just achieved 80s (or 90s) momma-Nirvana!
April 15, 2014:
Ace's new favorite phrase is "What the?!". At least she doesn't finish it. I'm calling that a win.
April 9, 2014:
While reading a bedtime book about airplanes with Zee, he points at two planes consecutively and says, "This one is flying into sports history, and this one is going to the beach!" Everyone likes the beach :).
April 2, 2014:
There is a HUGE rain storm here, so of course Ace closes all the blinds to "hide" and Zee runs to the windows without blinds to watch!
March 28, 2014:
At dinner tonight...
Ace: Mom, you should be on TV.
Me: For what?
Ace: Like on a cooking show, for kids, so they would know how to make this!
FYI: my kids never eat what I cook, and tonight she only ate half of the food on her plate. :)
