    Every time I smell a whiff of poop and ask if A pooped, but she hasn’t: “no just stinky farts!”

    He’s into states and license plates. He had me draw him a Vermont license plate.
    ‘Vermont is easy to spell. V-e-r-m-o-n-t.” It was said in this reassuring tone, like even I shouldn’t have trouble with it.

    Another Fry state instance:
    Rooster: “How do you spell Massachusetts?”
    Fry: “...Boston is in Massachusetts. Boston is spelled B-o-s-t-o-n.”
    Rooster later caught him studying how to spell Massachusetts on the weather app.

    D wanted a lolipop and decided on grape, but S warned him that it tastes like nasty medicine (facts). I told him he can just try it and if he doesn't like it, he can get a different flavor (since nobody in this house is going to eat nasty grape anyway). So then S asks me "Is it national try a lolipop day?" I told her I don't think that day exists. She she went and got out her Highlights kids magazine calendar that has a bunch of those bogus days on it and she goes "Let me check. But you can't look. Hmm. June 9th. yup! National try lolipop day!"

    I guess if it's on the calendar, we have to abide by it lol

    She's still going with it too. She just brought out a ring pop and asked if she should try it since it's a kind of lolipop. I usually only let them have the smaller dumdums. But I guess if it's a holiday, I have no choice but to let them try a ringpop today. I'm not a monster. And it's national.

    S: "Do candy canes count?"
    Me: "I don't know. You'll have to look it up."
    S: "I don't want to."
    Me: "Well, I guess I will have to then. [pretending to type} NATIONAL LOLIPOP DAY."
    S: "No! Don't type it out. It counts. It's a kind of lolipop."

    It's almost bed time but she peaked through the door when she was supposed to be getting ready and said "mommy, I think it's also national play a game with your family day."

    No lol

    C likes frosted donuts but only eats the frosting/sprinkles. Hands me his donut sans frosting, saying “it’s not for you, mom.”

    “Can I keep eating nonstop?”

    I don’t know what would make today different than any other day.

    I was on a call for work and E busted in, hopped on her rocker pony and started shouting “Yeeeee-hawwww! Yeeeee-hawwww!”

    :oops: That isn’t even something she typically says??? They must think I am nuts.

    Earlier today:

    A: I AM ANGRY!
    Me: I see that. It’s ok to be angry. Do you want a snack?
    A: Yes! I want gold fish, the cheesy kind.
    A few minutes later, after eating some of her snack...
    A: I’m happy again!!

    Same girl, same.

    Sometimes after C is hangry and eats, he will say “it makes me feel better”

    D was eating a piece of cornbread from Boston Market (so, a rectangle shape). He joked and said it was a face mask. :lol::no:

    Despite the fact he’s only “fwee”, Fry is already pretty hirsute. In the shower the other day he asked “what are these cute little fuzzy things?” about his own leg hair.
