On one of our recent snow days I had what I thought was a brilliant idea:
"Pierce go get a book and read it to me!"
Pierce: "Are you kidding me? I'm not gonna read on my day off!"
"Mommy, if a kid lost his leg would he need to get britches?" (Crutches)
Me: "Pierce, come give mommy a hug!"
Pierce: "Nah, I'm not really feeling it."
On Friday nights Hope and I snuggle and watch, Say Yes to the Dress, and sometimes her commentary is better than the show.
One particular episode a boyfriend was with his fiance' while she tried on dresses and he wasn't liking the soon-to-be-brides choices:
Hope: "It's not about you honey!"
Pierce: "I'm sweating like a dog in a Chinese restaurant."
Hope: "Mommy can I get a milkshake at Steak n' Shake today?"
Hope: "Why not?"
Me: "That's something we do on special occasions"
Hope: "Can today be a special occasion?"
Hope excitedly jumped in the car after school bursting to tell me something:
"Guess what mommy? The warthog saw his shadow!"
