Conversations with almost-six-year-olds.

Shaun trying to get KD to bed one fussy night:

KD: I don’t want you to go to work tomorrow.  I want you to ‘etire.

Shaun: I can’t retire, honey, I have go to work to so I can earn money to buy food and pay for our house.

KD: Or you’d have to hold up a sign on the corner all day and beg for food?

Shaun: Well, it’s probably just best if I go to work tomorrow.

KD: I still think we should all just ‘etire.

KD to me in all seriousness:

KD: Mommy, I think black women are the most beautiful women.

Me: That’s very nice, honey.

KD: I will think of you as black too, ok Mommy?

Me: Ok.

Easy Mac to me, when I had my new favorite skinny jeans and riding boots outfit on:

Easy Mac: Mommy, those jeans make your butt look big.

Me: Uh….

The girls deciding what superheroes Shaun and I should be:

KD: Daddy should be Superman because he’s super strong.

Shaun: What superhero is Mommy?

KD: Uh…hmm…well, I guess Mommy could be Green Lantern.

Me: {crickets}


Me: {death glare at Shaun, except I don’t think Green Lantern has that power.  damn.}

Oriental Trading could make it true for Halloween.  I don't even know if the Bombshell would pull that off.
