Kid-isms

Nazeriah to Dr. Melissa: "I have a secret ... I can't keep a secret."

Kaija to Daddy: "Nazeriah is in my personal space ... make her move."

Chayton, just in general: "MINE!"

My Little Protestor

Says Kaija:
You're a mean Mommy! I don't think I like you, Mommy. I want a new Mommy!

Says Mommy:
I'll see what I can arrange.

Background:
Kaija wanted to take her make-up to school today - Mommy didn't want her to. Now why on earth would someone give a 6 year-old make-up as a party gift?!? They are going to be bombarded with body-image expectations from the general public and media soon enough - lay off the 6 year-olds!

Background - part two:
Kaija also wasn't going to get on the school bus today - that is until Mommy told her that she could just walk back up to the house and tell Daddy why she isn't going to school. Kaija almost did that, until she saw Daddy standing at the foot of our driveway waiting for her. (Gotta love text messaging! Great way to get back-up in place.)
