Life according to kids

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?"

Me: "No."

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!"
