fruit #1

me: swee’pea, what do you want for dinner?

Isabella: i want to..um…i want to eat…pagina!!! yes!

me: um, excuse me?

Isabella: Pagina! i love Pagina!

me: WHAT?

Isabella: you know, that fing. the one with the noodles. and the cottage cheese. and the sauce. you know, pagina!

me: you mean, LASAGNA?

Isabella: yes, that’s what i said. pagina!

fruit #2

me: I needa shower.

Josh: i needa watch.

(um. oedipus much?)

(just kidding. yes, my boy, on occasion, does in fact watch me shower. but i’m pretty sure he was doing one of two things here. he was either a) mimicking his father. who says that.  a lot. or b) legitimately telling me that he needs a watch. as in a wristwatch.)

(at least, i hope it’s one of those)

fruit #3

me: Jesus, Emily, i have no idea what in our house is an example of a pulley. Your grade 2 homework is just too hard.

Emily: duh. just google ‘simple machines’

  1. oh my God Emily is priceless!!!

    Joshie .. too cute, like father like son, no doubt!!

    And Bella .. oy .. Pagina .. lol lol lol lol

    No doubt you are printing off all your pages and scrapbooking them for reading later on when they are bigger?! priceless. And worth writing a blog for!

  2. Don’t you just love it when your kids actually give you blogging material?

    Your husband and I would get along just fine.

  4. Haha, the age range of your kids is just awesome. Perfect ages for perfect stories! Pagina, watches, and google. Awesome!


    Comment by Hockeyman on October 29, 2008
  5. Wow. Having kids is basically an 18-year exercise in asking yourself, “Did I just hear/see/smell that?”, isn’t it?

    (That being said, yours are awfully cute.)

    Lovely I know.

  7. It is beyond strange to think that our little children know the term googling- and can probably find things way quicker than we can!


    Comment by Maya on October 29, 2008
  8. K, I don’t know which one is funnier! pagina? watch? google? Awesome.

  9. Dang, you should have called. I still have my simple machines science fair project from my senior year of hs. lol

    Pagina and cottage cheese should never be used in the same conversation.


    Comment by AJ on October 29, 2008
  10. hahaha! bella is so funny! and emily is way too smart.Ali wow are you going to have your hands full! and i’m sure josh just wants a watch to wear. kids say some hilarious things don’t they


    Comment by LAVENDULA on October 29, 2008
  11. If Josh starts talking about how it’s time to dump his dad and marry you, have Emily Google up some ideas to change his mind! :)

    Pagina actually sounds better than the pissghetti my kids want for dinner all the time.

  12. Mmmm, I want some spinach pagina for dinner now… but we have lack of funds which equals no money for pagina supplies. Wither way, uit’s funny and cute! Also, hopefully he DOES mean a wristwatch.

  19. Pagina? What’s so funny about chest pain…What’s that? NOT chest pain? Oh. OH. I get it! Man, that works on so many levels, ’cause I love to eat (wink).

    Reminds of the brief period where my daughter thought ‘kitty’ started with a T! Our neighbors had a ball with THAT one…

    Comment by schmutzie on October 29, 2008
  22. I’m a second grade teacher’s aide, and half the time I have to go home and Google the stuff they’re working on! I could never be a third grade aide…that long division stuff is brutal.


    Comment by Momo Fali on October 29, 2008
  23. I hope I never have to eat Pagina. Lasagne, however, sounds good!

  29. OMG, your kids KILL me. I’m laughing out loud here in my lair, which is no easy feat as my abs are dying from three days of boot camp following 16 days of vacation inactivity.


    Comment by Camels & Chocolate on October 29, 2008
  30. That reminds me that I haven’t made pagina in AGES. Maybe my husband would like to watch me make it. If you know what I mean!
    (I don’t know what I mean, now that I read that over.)

  35. Lucas has started to watch a show called Pop-it. It’s a show that teaches you dance moves. It’s great, but it reminds me of your daughter and her dancing.

  38. Am I the only one who was relieved when Emily’s answer didn’t involve some sort of sex swing or something? I mean, after
    “pagina” and watching Mommy shower, what was I supposed to expect?
