Driving down the road after seeing a person advertising for a yogurt store:
Lucy: "Mommy I want to be an ice cream cone when I grow up. A chocolate ice cream cone."
Driving home from swimming:
Me: "I just talked to daddy and we are going to Wendy's for dinner"
Cate: "Yeah, are we picking him up?"
Me: "No he is meeting us there"
Lucy: "Is he driving in our car or his?"
Me: "His, he is meeting us there"
Lucy: "OK, I'm going to relax until we get there"
Me: "Good idea Lucy"
Lucy: "I'm going take a chill out break" (guess I've been saying "chill out" a little too much lately-the 80s girl in me coming out)
Driving home from camp:
Cate & Lucy - mommy mommy mommy mommy - for sorts of reasons
Me: Turn on the book on CD and both kids are silent for 5 minutes
Me: "WHAT" (ok maybe a little too much frustration sneaks out)
Lucy: "But I only said Mommy once"
Walking back to our car after the July 4th parade:
Cate: "I want to watch TV until Uncle Lane gets here"
Lucy: "Cate first of all, we have to get to the car" (good point Lucy - but "first of all" from a 3 yr old?)
Getting ready to take a shower after spending the afternoon in the pool:
Lucy: "Mom I'm hydrated"
Me: "What honey??"
Lucy: "I'm very hydrated and thats good"
Me: "You are hydrated???" (still having trouble believing my 3 year old is using that word)
Lucy: "Yes - It was very sunny today but I spent all day in the water so I'm very hydrated"
After the fact Ric told me they had a converstation the day before on why it was important to drink water on a hot day.
