Caroline noticed a most unflattering mole on my arm. Black hair grows out of it which grosses me out so I try to keep it trimmed but obviously had slacked in the grooming department on this particular day.
Caroline (with a note of mild horror in her voice): “You have an eyelash growing on your arm?!”
Me: “Want to go to Grandma’s?”
Spencer (excitedly, pumping both fists in the air): “YEAH!”
Me (matching his enthusiasm): “When we get there, are you going to say, ‘I love you Grandma!’?”
Spencer (pausing for a moment and suddenly getting very serious): “Actually…I’m going to play with cars.”
Spencer, Caroline, and I were walking into a store. In the parking lot Spencer suddenly stopped, backtracked about five paces, and picked up a rock.
Spencer: “Caroline! It’s a rock! I found a rock! It’s totally a rock, Caroline!”
(You probably had to be there for that one. The “totally” part is what got me.)
Caroline had to be sedated for some dental work. I told her they would give her something to make her fall asleep and they’d fix her teeth while she was sleeping. While we were waiting for the dentist, she was lying down looking tired.
Me: “Are you going to go to sleep right now?”
Caroline: “You mean without even a sleeping spell?”
Me: “Caroline, would you like more apples?”
Caroline (carefully considering this offer): “I’m happy to report…I want a grapefruit.”
We were at my mom and dad’s house. Spencer and Caroline were in the basement watchingAlice in Wonderland. My mom and I heard Spencer coming up the stairs mumbling to himself, “That was the stupidest tea party ever.”
