Out of the mouth of Jesi

(By the way, I've been posting more on Elli's site: miraclesforelli.blogspot.com)

After reminding Jesi for the third or fourth time to do her chores:

"Mom, we had a police officer come to our school."

"Oh, yeah?"

"Yes, and he told us that we should always have a buddy."

"Mmmm Hmmm."

"So I need a buddy to clean my dress-ups with me!"


"Mommies and Daddies are different."

"Yes, they are different. What's different about them?"

"Well, like Daddies go to work and work on their computer."

"Mmmm Hmmm. And what do Mommies do?"

long pause

"Mommies wear bras and put make-up on."


After having been nicely asked to be quiet SEVERAL times by Jeremy (we were trying to have the kids sleep on a road trip), he finally sternly said, "JESSICA! STOP TALKING!"

A few minutes of silence and then in a beautiful, sweet SINGING voice:

"It's my choice! I can make my own choices!"
